NOTR - All the Counsel of God - 2.10.17


Chris discusses the importance of understanding the Apostle Paul's teaching in Acts chapter 20 and how he declared "all the counsel of God" to the ancient Ephesian Church.  What did the Apostle Paul mean?  And how does this apply to believers under the New Testament?  Some believers seem to think that the teachings of the Old Testament do not apply to the Church, but rather, only to the Jewish people.  Is this what Jesus and the Apostles taught?  Or are Christians admonished to look to the writings of Moses and the prophets as examples of how we should walk in the faith today?

Great show Chris .. we have here also in the Old Testament concerning self defense:

Exod 22:2 If a thief be found breaking up, and be smitten that he die, there shall no blood be shed for him.

Commentary from Matthew Poole:

Breaking up, to wit, an house, which the Chaldee here adds, and by night, as appears from the next verse.

For him, i.e. for the thief, though he be killed by a man in his own defence. Because in that case the thief might be presumed to have a worse design, and the owner of the house could neither expect or have the help of others to secure him from the intended violence, nor guide his blows with that discretion and moderation which in the day-time he might use.

"There are many devices in a man’s heart; nevertheless, the counsel of the Lord, that shall stand." (Proverbs 19:21)
