Debbie, Thank you. Les Feldick used to offer such tours. You might want to contact them and see if they can make a recommendation. Don thank you for your clear teaching! Should I stay there and oppose him or just leave and not cause a split? Bert, Thank you. What does your pastor preach about how one is saved? Does he proclaim one is saved solely by believing Christ died for our sins and rose from the dead? If so, does he maintain this is what Jesus and the Twelve told the Jews regarding how to be saved? And if so, how does he explain Luke Does he maintain the Scriptures are wrong?

Christina, The issue is what is the source of authority for believing in a heavenly mother. The Bible never teaches this. This is a same matter over all such questions: what do the Scriptures say? They bring up so much stuff that is just strange fire and they seriously believe it! They also said Jesus already came back…. Christina, One has to completely twist the clear reading of Scripture to arrive at such views. Lots of deception out in the world. The stage continues to be set for the advent of the Beast.
Thanks, I have learned so much from your teaching. Mike, Hard to say. Maybe he did privately. What one must keep in mind constantly in considering Acts is two things: 1 It was written to Jews to explain why the kingdom of God did not come to earth and why God chose Paul and 2 It is not a doctrinal book. It is a historical book. What is your take on this? Do you think the few enlightened ones are indebted to employ highly effective measures to break through as much as possible?
It seems we are satisfied with each one of us working individually in setting goals and achieving them in sending information to the people. How effective would this be?
Would we say it is necessarily not our burden to ensure as many people as possible hear of this truth? Sorry in case I may have gone too far. See Isaiah 1. The Lord said but few find salvation Matthew 7. All we can do is be individually faithful and proclaim His truth for today that salvation is by faith alone, believing Christ died for our sins and rose from the dead 1 Corinthians God knows His own and will never let anyone be lost who desires His salvation. Paul gave us our marching orders in 2 Corinthians 5.
Before I discovered this site, in one way or another I taught similar doctrine, i. I am just asking you, can I use your material so that I can continue my crusade, just like what you are doing, So that whatever it takes this doctrine will save some? Juancho, Your experience is not unusual.
You are more than welcome to use my materials. My new book may also be helpful. Preach it every Sunday.blacksmithsurgical.com/t3-assets/archetypes/sharing-her.php

What about people who attend legalistic or blended gospel churches. If they believe are they saved? Keith, Anyone who believes 1 Corinthians One must believe rely on this alone, no works. Everything clicks now! Grace to you, Don! Brian, Your response is the reason I write. May the Lord continue to enlighten and bless you. Many evangelicals are confused as to Romans regarding salvation.
Gospel of the Kingdom
In fact, quite a few evangelical churches in my city, and on the local radio, proclaim this by citing Romans How do I respond to this? Brian, One has to understand Romans in context. His primary point is to demonstrate to Jews that salvation has always been by faith but that Israel has missed this great truth. Public confession, i. This is contrary to everything Paul taught elsewhere. In Romans This should be the go-to passage for everyone sharing the gospel. Why men avoid it is troubling. But in Acts 10 the very first case of Gentiles being sealed by the Holy Spirit from God we see that Peter preached the exact same gospel that Paul later defined in 1 Cor.
Acts 10 39 And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree: 40 Him God raised up the third day, and shewed him openly; 41 Not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead.
There it is… 1 Cor 15 right there in Acts Him God raised up the third day 3. Shewed Him openly, not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before God. James, Four points: 1 Acts 10 is after Acts 9. Peter went to the Gentile Cornelius after Paul was saved. That was not new. Peter did not tell them Christ died for their sins. He told them to repent from the sin of murdering the Messiah and be baptized for the forgiveness of sins.
The most beloved devotional of all time.
Peter had not even finished his message. And they were baptized which was required for salvation under the gospel of the kingdom. Paul went straight to the Jews. No gentiles. And Paul preached the Kingdom gospel to those Jews in Acts 9. That was the whole purpose of the dream to Peter in Acts Gentiles were made clean by God…. EVER … without even needing water baptism. James, Paul did not preach the kingdom gospel in Acts 9. We have no record Paul ever offered the kingdom to Israel.
He proclaimed Jesus was the Son of God Acts 9. This did not include Paul. Paul stated he received this gospel directly from the risen Lord Galatians 1. It was not known before.

He also gave them instruction about the order of evangelism: Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and the uttermost part of the world Acts 1. This is what they did. But we also see that Israel refused to repent. Peter made it clear in Acts that if Israel repented, God would sent Christ to establish His kingdom on the earth. Gentile blessing depended on this also. So we see in Acts 8. In Acts 7, it became clear Israel would not repent. They stoned Stephen. The die was cast. So, it appeared that God was boxed in. He could not bless Gentiles according to the prophetic plan because Israel would not repent.
But in chapter 9, God saved Saul. Thus, God moved outside of His prophetic plan and created a new, previously unrevealed plan to bless Gentiles. This is why God kept Paul separated from the Twelve. Paul is to the Church what Abraham, Moses, and the prophets were to Israel. Paul became proxy Israel in concert with the Abrahamic Covenant.
The Twelve knew none of this and this is why they had the big dust up at the Council of Jerusalem. Paul wrote in Galatians 2. Indeed, there would have been no need for a Council.
The Twelve never had a ministry to Gentiles and we have no record that Peter ever evangelized another Gentile after Acts It was a one-time event God set up so that Peter could aid Paul 14 years later at the Council.
