The Conference in Acts



There are those who claim that the Christians must keep the ordinances [feast days] of Moses.



What does the Word of God say?



Act 15:1 And certain men which came down from Judaea taught the brethren [of the Gentiles], and said, Except ye be circumcised after the manner of Moses, ye cannot be saved.



Act 15:2 When therefore Paul and Barnabas had no small dissension and disputation with them, they determined that Paul and Barnabas, and certain other of them, should go up to Jerusalem unto the apostles and elders about this question.



Act 15:4 And when they were come to Jerusalem, they were received of the church, and of the apostles and elders, and they declared all things that God had done with them.



Act 15:5 But there rose up certain of the sect of the Pharisees which believed, saying, That it was needful to circumcise them, and to command them to keep the law of Moses.



Act 15:6 And the apostles and elders came together for to consider of this matter.



Act 15:12 Then all the multitude kept silence, and gave audience to Barnabas and Paul, declaring what miracles and wonders God had wrought among the Gentiles by them.



Act 15:13 And after they had held their peace, James answered, saying, Men and brethren, hearken unto me:



Act 15:14 Simeon hath declared how God at the first did visit the Gentiles, to take out of them a people for his name.



Act 15:15 And to this agree the wordsof the prophets; as it is written,



Act 15:16 After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle of David [made without men's hands], which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up:



Act 15:17 That the residue of men might seek after the Lord, and all the Gentiles, upon whom my name is called, saith the Lord, who doeth all these things.



Act 15:19 Wherefore my sentence is, that we trouble not them, which from among the Gentiles are turned to God:



Act 15:20 But that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idol, and from fornication, and from things strangled { the lusts of this world, and from blood.



Act 15:22 Then pleased it the apostles and elders, with the whole church, to send chosen men of their own company to Antioch with Paul and Barnabas; namely, Judas surnamed Barsabas, and Silas, chief men among the brethren:



Act 15:23 And they wrote letters by them after this manner; The apostles and elders and brethren send greeting unto the brethren which are of the Gentiles in Antioch and Syria and Cilicia:



Act 15:24 Forasmuch as we have heard, that certain which went out from us have troubled you with words, subverting your souls, saying, Ye must be circumcised, and keep the law: to whom we gave no such commandment:



Act 15:28 For it seemed good to the Holy Ghost [Old Testament Scriptures], and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things;



Act 15:29 That ye abstain from meats offered to idols {teachings} Mat 24-45 - Jhn 6:55], and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well. Fare ye well.



Rom 13:9 For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.




The Law did not come until Moses - yet, Abraham was called Friend of God - because he believed God.



Exd 6:3 And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them.

In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Hbr 8:13
