Bible: Acts 15:6-11

15:6 Both the apostles and the elders met together to deliberate 1  about this matter. 15:7 After there had been much debate, 2  Peter stood up and said to them, “Brothers, you know that some time ago 3  God chose 4  me to preach to the Gentiles so they would hear the message 5  of the gospel 6  and believe. 7  15:8 And God, who knows the heart, 8  has testified 9  to them by giving them the Holy Spirit just as he did to us, 10  15:9 and he made no distinction 11  between them and us, cleansing 12  their hearts by faith. 15:10 So now why are you putting God to the test 13  by placing on the neck of the disciples a yoke 14  that neither our ancestors 15  nor we have been able to bear? 15:11 On the contrary, we believe that we are saved through 16  the grace of the Lord Jesus, in the same way as they are.” 17
