So, despite they way it had been in the past, Peter was open to what God had to say in the moment. And that word was that God shows no partiality but accepts all who fear Him and work for righteousness.


I'm curious about something. Adrian's position is easy to understand and deal with. He doesn't believe anything in the Bible is "God's Word" in the sense that we need to conform to it. Your position is a little harder to understand. IIRC, you are a pastor. Paul in 1Co. 6 gives a list of people who will "not inherit the Kingdom of God". Which of those types of people do you encourage to accept themselves as God created them, and which do you help to resist temptation?

I think the Church should be a place where sinners are welcomed with open arms. Otherwise I wouldn't have a place ;-) But neither should it be a place where views contrary to God's views are promoted.
