Sun.7/2/17 10am “Hearts of Faith” – Acts 15 – cd#1649


Peter says in Acts 15 that it is impossible to keep God’s Law as it was being taught by the Pharisees. Remember that the Pharisees always accused Jesus of violating the Law. Jesus never violated the Law of God, but He violated the traditions of the Pharisees. So Peter stated; “Why do we tempt God by putting a yoke of bondage on the neck of the Gentiles? It’s been too heavy for us”. Paul also wrote concerning the Gentiles & Jews; “Gentiles, who did not seek righteousness, have attained righteousness, even the righteousness of Faith; but Israel, who sought the Law of righteousness, have not attained to the Law. Why? Because they did not seek it by Faith, but by works”! (Romans.9:30-32)     This can be a problem today, because there are many who say Christians must keep the Law to be saved, they will even add other works & rituals to put God’s people in bondage. Rituals do not save. Rules do not save. You are saved when your Heart is filled with Faith in the Living God.
