micah let me know he got his CB this week, and he really likes it.
Following are some very important scriptures from The Christian Bible.
..."we have to enter into God's Kingdom by going through many oppressions." ..Then after they had spoken the Master's Word in Perga...gathered the group of Called Ones, they began delivering the message among them about ...how he had opened a door of faith to the pagans... Now some people came down from Judea and began teaching the brother and sisters, "Unless you men are circumcised according to the custom of Moses, you can't be saved."
..Paul and Barnabas..go up to Jerusalem to the dispatched envoys and older ones about this question....they were continually describing in detail about the turning around of the pagans, and were causing great joy to all the brothers and sisters....Yet some people from the sect [denomination] of the Pharisees, who had now become Believers, rose up and said, "They have to be circumcised and charged to keep the Law of Moses."
..Now after much questioning had occurred, Peter rose up and said to them, "Brothers and sisters, you have expertise in the fact that from the beginning days God chose among you, that through my mouth the pagans should hear the Word of the Good Message and believe. Now God, who knows what is in hearts, testified to them, giving them the Pure Spirit, just as he also did to us, and discriminated in nothing between us and them, making their hearts clean by faith. So then, why are you now testing God by placing a yoke upon the necks of the students that neither our forefathers nor we have been strong enough to carry? Rather, we are continually believing that we are saved through the favor of the Master Yesu, in the same manner as they also.. Acts (last part of 14, first part of 15), The Christian Bible (1991)
