Separate is Not Equal!

Imagine if, while one of the our elders was preaching, another elder stood up and shouted, “You are wrong!”
Our text for Sunday contains an even more tense moment as the Apostle Paul publicly opposes Peter’s refusal to eat with the Gentiles.

Our passage reveals that even great men make great mistakes, which means that we must put our ultimate trust in God who speaks infallibly in His Word.
We also are reminded that everyone, including (especially!) church leaders, needs accountability.

Paul’s actions also remind us that we need to be prepared to defend the gospel against even implicit corruption.
