Today is Thursday March 31 2022, and in the word of God for today on this platform we are going to look at why Christianity is not the only true religion.
Then Peter opened his mouth and said: “in truth I perceive that God shows no partiality. “But in every nation whosoever fears Him and works righteousness is accepted by Him.Acts 10:34-35.
To understand the above scripture, let’s see why Peter made the above speech.
Ritually unclean animals.
According to the bible, there were certain animals that God forbidded the Jews to eat.
These kind of animals were termed as ritually uncleaned.
But when Peter had a vision of a basket full of this ritually unclean animals, he was ordered to rise, kill and eat them.
And for three consecutive times, Peter refused saying as a Jew he was forbidded by God to eat a ritually unclean animal.
Immediately the vision went away, there were soldiers on Peter’s door who were sent by Cornelius to pick him up.
Who was Cornelius?
Cornelius was a high official in the government army who was very religious, even though he was not a Jew.
And because of his good deeds, God predestined him to be among the early converted Christians.
And Peter was assigned to teach him the ways of the new religion.
The highest point of the story is that, on Peter’s return he also learnt about the Gentiles who received the Holy Spirit, even without the official laying of hands.
So therefore, considering his encounter with Cornelius, Peter made the speech that forms the word of God today on this blog.
The story of Peter and Cornelius we see in our word of God for today helps us to understand that Christians are not the only ones who will be saved.
And we can safely say that Christianity is not the only true religion.
Because true religion is any one who does right in the sight of God.
