The church at Jerusalem held a conference to determine whether they should exempt non-Jewish Christians from observing Jewish tradition. The conference concluded that it is only essential for Christians to serve God in liberty of their spirit to prevent inhibition of the gospel. The Church elders wrote a letter to Paul as quoted, “…But concerning the Gentiles who believe, we have written and decided that they should observe no such thing, except that they should keep themselves from things offered to idols, from blood, from things strangled, and from sexual immorality” (Acts 21:25).
Non-Jewish Christians and Jewish Christians are the same people in the sight of the Lord. There is no segregation with God! However, a Christian of any background must obey God’s laws. We must engage in praiseworthy activities – that glorifies God’s name at all times.
