“It is the decision of the Holy Spirit and us…” We hear the conclusion of the so-called “Council of Jerusalem” who were dealing with how to handle pagans who wanted to be members of the Church. Did they have to become Jews first and obey the commandments in Torah? The answer was, fortunately, “no.” The nature of the Church would change; it would be a new entity different from Judaism but coming from Judaism. Good thing for you and me! We are the Church.
