A Beautiful Mess

What made this doctrinal crisis work out as beautiful as it did was the Church’s AIM.

First, the church in Jerusalem made sure The gospel, was never compromised.
Throughout this debate, the gospel of Christ, the gift of Jesus shed for our sins, the call to repentance, was never compromised. The church understood what people—Jew or Gentile—have to do to be powerfully saved.

This could have been a moment when the gospel of salvation could have been terribly confused, and the church could have divided over doctrinal misunderstandings.
• But the church preserved what Paul would say to the Corinthians in chapter 1, when he said: If anyone pulls the cross out of the gospel in any way, shape, or form, they’re wrong.
• So the gospel of salvation was preserved in this great debate.

Second, they preserved the unity of the body of Christ.
No one walked.
• We don’t hear ourselves well in today’s society.
• We are being so in love with a customized society in which every person wants everything his or her way.
• Whether we’re talking about business and the stores we go to,
• or the clothing we buy,
• or the job we do,
• everybody demands that you do it his or her way.
• If not, they walk.
