Today’s Reading – Acts 15-16
Some people came down from Judea
teaching the family of believers,
“Unless you are circumcised according
to the custom we’ve received from Moses,
you can’t be saved.”
Acts 15:1 CEB
Really? Can’t be saved?
When did Jesus ever say that?
It is shame that today we have still not learned the lesson from this incident in the early church.
Through the ages (up to and including today) we have ADDED to the Gospel message.
In order to be saved you must . . . and we keep make the list longer and longer.
The Reformation tried to end the argument, but it still rages on.
Now we argue in the reverse, you can’t be saved and be . . .
When was Jesus ever about excluding people from the Gospel?
So let me ask you,
Does your faith add or subtract from the Good News of Christ?
