    But at the same time, no aspect of life is therefore irrelevant to it.
    Something is always happening, but when it happens, people don't always see it, or understand it... or accept it.

    When you decide, we can discuss. I look forward to it.

    I'm not sure what I think exactly but I'm hesitant to write off what they say in Acts as just a compromise because that part also bans sexual immorality (which is of course always wrong too).
    That is probably the one aspect of the quote that stops me from dismissing it solely as a cultural consideration--that it includes sexual immorality.

    Yes, which is why I think it's actually linking the "blood" with "strangling"... cause animals killed by strangling instead of slaughter will contain far more blood.

    Perhaps I wasn't clear... the "compromise" is - let's narrow it down to some basic tenets, and not "the whole Jewish law" thing.

    1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.

  5. Amen KingsGambit amen'd this post.
