AC47 – Churches at Peace

Circumcision and law keeping are not required for salvation. Paul and Barnabas gladly take the letter back to Antioch.

AC46 – God Knows What He is Doing

Some even objected. Finally, James addressed the meeting that what was happening was in line with prior Scripture revelation.
