Discussion for Acts 15

    Paul spoke as well not to tie us into their the Jewish rites we are not bound to them but to the Lord. God called them all to speak about Jesus and the price he paid for our sins to except His word and to be joined as one through Christ, not to man, He is the way the truth and the life. God Bless you all

    to put a yoke upon our brethren that not even our fathers could bare, the laws of Moses time were good as Paul spoke in Romans, but not one could keep them only Christ, Jews were not to pit us against the Gospel of Jesus Christ,knowone is under the laws of Moses but under grace by faith through Jesus Christ, Gentiles were told not to do things that they did in their traditions of rites

    Peter had the 'Keys to the Kingdom,' as God had chosen Peter to stand before all and give the plan of Salvation. His message, Acts 2:38-39. Repent and be baptized everyone of you in the Name of Jesus Christ for the remission of your sins and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. If you aren't baptized in the name of Jesus and filled with the Holy Ghost you are not heaven ready.

    Let me politely ask you an even more powerful question. Which are you going to believe? Are you going to believe unholy and ungodly ghost stories or the Holy Word of God? God Bless! May God guide you, protect you, and watch over you on your search/journey for his truth.

    Pray always for the Lord to know you, ask for the Holy Spirit to teach you the word, read the same chapter over and over and pray each time for the word to get into your soul, above all else pray that His will be done on earth as it is in heaven and to teach you. Don't let go of him hold fast to the hem of his garment through prayer and reading the bible.
