Bible: Acts 15:23-29

15:23 They sent this letter with them: 1 

From the apostles 2  and elders, your brothers, 3  to the Gentile brothers and sisters 4  in Antioch, 5  Syria, 6  and Cilicia, greetings! 15:24 Since we have heard that some have gone out from among us with no orders from us and have confused 7  you, upsetting 8  your minds 9  by what they said, 10  15:25 we have unanimously 11  decided 12  to choose men to send to you along with our dear friends Barnabas and Paul, 15:26 who 13  have risked their lives 14  for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. 15  15:27 Therefore we are sending 16  Judas and Silas 17  who will tell you these things themselves in person. 18  15:28 For it seemed best to the Holy Spirit and to us 19  not to place any greater burden on you than these necessary rules: 20  15:29 that you abstain from meat that has been sacrificed to idols 21  and from blood and from what has been strangled 22  and from sexual immorality. 23  If you keep yourselves from doing these things, 24  you will do well. Farewell. 25
