Do you know of which you speak? The folks in Acts 15:1 got it all wrong.
But some men came down from Judea and were instructing the brethren unless you are circumcised in accordance with the Mosaic custom, you cannot be saved. (Acts 15:1, AMP)
How often do we do the same thing? Do these sound familiar to you?
Our church has stained windows. You can’t be holy in a gym setting.
You speak in tongues and therefore you have to or you are not saved.
I go to a church where the music is only an organ. How dare you use drums and guitar?
Our pastor only uses the King James Bible. All others are sinful.
We must all be circumcised so you not saved if you don’t.

But we believe that we are saved through the grace (the undeserved favor and mercy) of the Lord Jesus, just as they [are] (Acts 15:10-11, AMP)
Prayer- Father God-please help us to love one another in peace. Help us never to create separation by pointing out our differences but instead concentrate on our sameness in Christ. Amen.
