    Verse 15~there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous. Many will have a chance to build a relationship with Jehovah God under perfect conditions.

    ACTS 24:14 but this I confess unto thee that after --THE WAY-- which they call heresy so I worship the GOD of my fathers believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets PSALM 18:21 for I have kept --THE WAYS-- of THE LORD and have not wickedly departed from my GOD PROVERBS 16:25 there is a way that seemeth right unto man but the end thereof are --THE WAYS-- of death

    Acts 24-31, scripture to learn from. Leviticus 18.
    All people are from the blood line of Adam and Eve. I want to correct something I wrote earlier; I wrote that Cain would have married his sister. But scripture does not tell us who Cain married. So, I repent of that comment.

    Felix; for at least 2 YEARS he heard the truth of God's word. He well KNEW the way of salvation - from Paul. The Bible is silent on how he turned out, but even after 2 yrs. of hearing about the sin of the love of money, covetousness - he still was hoping for money from Paul. He hadn't learned by then, so ............only God knows.
  • Irene123
    "But this I confess unto thee, that after the way they call HERESY, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things written in the Law and the Prophets."
  • BSP
    Verse 26 shows that Felix had ulterior motives.
