It sounds like you are trying to convince yourself that you have enough faith which only indicates your unsureness.
The Author of our faith is Jesus, not us...
Hebrews 12:2 (KJV) Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
I think I am now understanding some of the misunderstandings of the members here.

Some have a very unbiblical concept of faith.

To think one can not build their faith or move from fear to faith is astonishing.

I suggest reading the Word, and not being led about by false teachers. That's really the antidote.

It humors me that a guy who believes Benny Hinn is a man of God is trying to correct me. I mean, it's so apparent even most charismatics know he's a fake.
Then david was either fake or a man of God.

Same with soloman and peter.

You see now what Apostle James meant when he wrote"faith without works Is dead"nevertheless a person's works has nothing to do with their salvation,that Grace Is a gift.☺️
He showed his hand in the op.
He despises those he listed.
The virus thingy is a platform to malign them.
But to politicise a virus is pretty bizarre.
I mean you are either gonna get in the battle and seek God to be that agent of seeing them healed or throw spit was at the brethren.
That choice is a no brainer to me.

It almost reminds me of an addiction. Addiction of attacking men of God.

It IS a spirit.
Same deal when Jesus walked the earth.
They hated his power.
They hated who He was.
Their energy to discredit him was tireless.
Same deal today.

Works are a reflection of the person's faith. They are a fruit of a sound faith.

Solomon got practically antichrist in his rule.
Got his eye on women.
The women took him to an evil place.

Now most here do not Know what God did concerning his removal as king.

What in the world got your goat?
The verses are not acceptable???
God does not mention the unclean. He said what he had cleansed call not Common. To say He cleansed the unclean animals when HE does not mention them is to add what is not there.
If we are going by Peter, he doesn't mention animals what soever in his interpretation. He only sees the vision in respects to people. And Peter made A distinction between what is common and what is unclean in respect to animals by the word "or".

If we are only going by the Word of God only then these text cannot be used to say that the unclean animals are now fit for consumption.

Acts 10:14 But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten any thing that is common OR unclean.
Acts 10:15 And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common


SO BASICALLY IN RESPONSE TO THIS YOU SAID....
So you are saying that in spite of God bringing the gentiles "unclean" into His family,and inspite of there being unclean creatures in the sheet,you have some doctrinal issue with a no brainer?

Bizarre.
So as to clear up any confusion on your part, the response of, "So much for following Scripture only and having a civil conversation."

Was to your, "you have some doctrinal issue with a no brainer?

Bizarre"

Yup....you are one of those types I see. Keep listening to the world and you will miss what God is doing, I don't banter with people bashing our brothers in Christ. And you aren't doing it via a mistake, you actually believe this, so that lets me know you can't see into the Spirit world at all.
There is a sect of christianity devoted to attacking.

They are vile and hateful.
I believe they have no peace and their spirit is in turmoil.

That turmoil comes out of them and they manifest exactly like the pharisees did with the apostles.
They would beat us and kill us if they could.

Gentiles were unclean to the Jew.
The sheet had unclean creatures.

You MUST ignore that for some reason

It is not a grammatical voiding of a .....

Obvious dynamic.

There are many who claim to be Christian that are not Christian. How are we to discern the true Christian from the false Christian, by their fruit, by what they teach, say and do. A true Christian will not follow a false Christian, for they know the voice of the Lord and they follow him, they are guided by the Spirit to truth and away from lies.

If the above statement is scriptural, is it not logical to deduce that both the false teacher and the student who loves the teaching are both lost? Possibly.

Your assuming more than that is there my friend.
Peter mentions common and unclean animals. He made a distinction between the two.The unclean animals were what made the clean animals common, impure. They were interacting. Rubbing elbows and such.

God only mentions cleansing the common. NO mention of the unclean by God whatsoever.

Then Peter's interpretation had nothing to do with the animals that he seen only people.

These are three facts that can be gleaned from these verses.

Nice box....
But then most believe nobody is always right and we sin. So now what. No true Christians?

The picture is unclean animals are used to tell peter God has cleansed or opened the gospel to the Gentiles through the cross. Now go out and get them.
The gospel now opened to what the Jew considered to be unclean.

Common not the unclean. We should not add what is not there
Unclean animals are still unfit for our consumption because they were not cleansed only the common ones were by God per God.,
Acts 10:15 And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.

One of the creatures in the sheet has the same Greek word for the snake biting Paul's hand.
So a snake is not unclean?

Paul says he can take the unclean to eat if it is sanctified through prayer
Was paul wrong?
