Re: Salvation, Doctrine and Rightly Dividing - MAD

PJ and others that follow the MAD doctrine...I am interested to see if you read the following passages the same as I do.

We are close to Acts 17 but not quite.. Acts 15 will do.

Acts 15:5 (KJV).."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."

Here the Pharisees are telling Paul and company, the law of Moses needs to be followed to be saved (circumcised)

Acts 15:7 (KJV).."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 believe."

Here Paul is telling them, that Jesus had to Paul to teach it to the Gentiles as well as to the Jews. (I might add, the Jews were to be taught first then the Gentiles.)

Acts 15:8.(KJV).."And God, which knoweth the hearts, bare them witness, giving them the Holy Ghost, even as he did unto us;"

Notice the last bit of scripture."even as He did unto us" Us are JEWS and it is apparent they also had the Holy Ghost as previous time... In the next verse, Paul tells them the Gentiles and Jews are the same.

Acts 15:9(KJV).."And put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith."

I do believe I just read where the Church started with the Jews in Acts 2. "even as He did unto us"

Of course, at this time the Church (Body of Christ) is not known but it has already started. For all of those that believed and received the Holy Spirit during the transition period of Acts are part of the Church. Those that died during this same time period "in Jesus" are in heaven awaiting the rest of the "first resurrection" to commence.

Blade

Yes, I agree Blade. But there are many so called MADs that would not. There are many divisions within MAD including the Acts 2 group, Acts 9, Acts 13 and Acts 28. So maybe I'm not even MAD but I agree with so much of the interpretation. I would have to say the the Body Of Christ (BOC), the Church, started at @ Acts 2.

Whoa, I never knew there were so many dispensations for those of MAD...Talking about hyper-dispensation.

Blade
1 Cor 15:3-4.."For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"

Acts 17:11.."These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so."
