These are those among men
whom are called by Christ to come to him and join 'His Church' as
defined on this page. These persons, too, are called from among men
off all sorts, of which many were of extreme evil (as were the Apostles)
but Satan did not prevail over them and they accepted Christ, surrendered
their lives to him, baptized into 'His Church', bear their cross and followed
him, walking in the 12 commandments for all their days - They
are 'Holiness in Jesus Christ'. The book of acts describes
in detail the Holy Church and the real, original way of Christ's servants
from the beginning. Disciples
ae not per definition 'Christians' but surely by definition
'Believers': for only those repented and baptised are
following text is also a example of how the early church was on its way
to become crooked, even as many churches are today. On this occasion, however,
one of the Apostles, through the spirit of Christ, saves the day.)
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
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: 7
And when there had been much disputing, Peter rose up, and said unto them,
Men and brethren, ye know how that a good while ago God made choice among
us, that the Gentiles by my mouth should hear the word of the Gospel, and
'my mouth' here
sounds very funny as there are 12 apostels and a further 40 sent to preach
the Gospel, and it is no doubt a mis-translation or mis-interpretation)
ACT 15: 8
And God, which knoweth the hearts, bare them witness, giving them the Holy
Ghost, even as he did unto us;
ACT 15: 9
And put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith.
ACT 15: 10 Now
therefore why tempt ye God, to put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples,
which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear?
ACT 15: 11 But
we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be
saved, even as they.
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. ( Back

So, we here were saved from
what would have been a menly law to be circumcised as Christians!
But, oh! who can save us from the so-called 'Christian' fable-makers of
today? It is the written Gospel of Christ, which we all have access
to, today! That is our saviour. The law of circumcision is not in
the new testament - the Gospel, and so we would know it to
be a 'law of men' as is the case with all the other false teachings of
both Protestants and Catholics.
Paul to the Christians (Those Repented & Baptised):
PE1 2: 5 Ye also,
as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to
offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
PE1 2: 9 Butye
are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar
people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you
out of darkness into his marvellous light.
HEB 7: 24 But
this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood.
HEB 7: 25 Wherefore
he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him,
seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.
I Timothy 2:5
"For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ
