#46 ~ Acts 3:1-15 Also, the penal system God gave Israel and what we should think of it.
God’s grace is a wonderful blessing. Do you realize what God did for you through Jesus Christ on that cross and through His resurrection? Forgiveness of even the worst of sins, even crimes was provided. Put your faith in Him today and salvation becomes yours forever. You’ll never receive a more wonderful gift. Ephesians 2:8-9 spells it out. The video also deals with the law and justice. The law given to Israel serves as an example for us of what God thinks of various forms of criminal activity. I lay out the list of crimes God spoke of as capital crimes. Shouldn’t any peace-loving society want similar laws today? In the USA we have had similar laws to what God gave Israel, but steadily our law system has eroded, becoming more and more permissive. It should be no surprise to anyone that this has brought on much needless suffering. If you’ve been a party to this, your thinking needs to change. Regardless, as a sinner, everyone needs the salvation God offers freely by grace through faith in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ (I Corinthians 15:1-4; II Corinthians 5:18-21).
