We hear about the debate on how to deal with pagans who believe in Jesus. (What is often referred to as the Council of Jerusalem) Must the pagans become Jews first and obey the laws found in Torah? After prayer and debate, the pagans were not required to obey all the Torah laws, thus they didn’t have to be Jews first. This is a major step in turning followers of Christ into a new religion separate from Judaism. Thank God they did or Christianity may have dissolved instead of becoming a world-wide religion.
