It seems to be the push today that what you believe doesn't matter as long as you believe something. After all we are all God's children. Is that the way God looks at it. The book of the Acts of the Apostles shows us the beginning of the church. It is the only place where the sermons of the apostles are recorded. We see them standing up, and proclaiming God. We see churches started. We see salvation offered to the Jews, and then to the Gentiles. We see the church go from being strictly Jewish to spreading throughout the world, embracing all cultures and peoples. Each one of us will stand directly before God, and answer to Him at the great white throne for what we have embraced, believed, and taught. I have just attempted to show what the Bible says in the book of Acts. I ask each reader to affirm for themselves that I have brought out just what it says. Without putting any organizations doctrine to it, I submit that once we know what it plainly says, we have only two options: obey, or excuse. I have attempted to make clear what it straight forwardly claims, and to show how that applies to us today. I ask no body to necessarily come to my way of thinking. I just would like to show you what I have seen and make it easy to understand. Then it is up to you what you do with it, if anything. You answer only to God, not to me. Acts24:16 "And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offence toward God, and toward men." God bless, and keep pressing toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
