If you don’t believe the gospel is 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 – refer to Acts 13, as well as Acts 16 and Romans 1. Remember : Paul was saved in Acts 9 – keep that as the barometer as to how long after he got saved he started preaching Christ crucified. And Romans 1 doesn’t speak of a different gospel – it tells us this :
4 and declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:5 by whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name:
And to the ignorant who believe there are differences between the Ephesians and the Romans and Greeks in that the Greeks/Romans were actually Jews – Check out Acts 19 and Revelation 2.
Is it any wonder that mainline, institutionalized denominationalism sees the Ephesians the Apostle Paul wrote to as being the same people mentioned in Revelation 2?
But how do they reconcile Ephesians 1:3, Ephesians 1:5 and Ephesians 1:12 with Revelation 2:4, and Revelation 2:5 to Ephesians 2:8-10?
Revelation 2 also blows the mongrel doctrine out the water that the mystery in its entirety was revealed to the Apostle Paul in Acts 9 – thereafter, the 12 and their disciples became members of the body of Christ, including Cornelius. Duh?
The Greeks and Romans of Paul’s day are practically the same as the Greeks and Romans of today – pagan Gentiles with Jews in the flesh and their converts living amongst them. After all, the Jews have been in diaspora for a long time – even before Christ’s earthly ministry, and they had prostelytes to the faith – hence the reason why the 12 spoke in tongues (other languages) – in order to be understood, yes? So what’s the problem today with everyone talking in “tongues” – because it seems all the so-called missionaries have to learn how to speak foreign languages.
Why can’t missionaries today not be understood by people of another language when they speak in tongues?
