What he wanted them to understand was that there was no aavlrvor nower in God. in obedience to that law, so that if there be a Jew that is called in the gospel of circumci sion, which makes him a sorvant of God under the law, then let him so live that his outward works, will show his inward j grace; let him not seek to f ree 1 himself from such, as a servant of (hid. Por this is nnihinir huticept that way of beinir saved.1 the obeying of God's commands. and through such obedience he is made God's 'f.ree man." (See 1st Got,, 7th, di. 21, 22nd, vs-) And so it is, if one is called in the gospel of iMicircumcisioQi he Is then Christ's servant, aud it is not honest in him to seek cir cumcision of the flesh; for bl should be, circumcision of the heart. And this is what Paul ordained among all the churches For circumcision is nothing, and tincifi-iiiiioisitot in nnt.htno hit, the keeping of the command ments of God. Aud the keeping of the com mandments of God, we remark, is the keeping of the gospel of uncircumcision, on the part of those who bdieve in. tbat gospel, and the keeping of the gospel of circumcision on the part of those who believe in that gospel. And obedience unto the requirements of those two gospels, leads them to one in Christ, their only hope of glory. And duty requires that both Jews and entiles re main in the calling, wherein they were called, And under no considerations, would Paul suffer the entiles to be circumcised, , luf.,tc,. fch vrovo rmlbwl in the gospel of uncircumcision- And he, himsetf suffered many things in order to forwa-'d the cause of Christ, both to the be j heving Jews, and also to the j Greeks, or Gentil"s. All these accusations which were brought against Paul, were false, every MIl.A of til. till N'..... K ... Ik . . one of them, Now then, in or der to forward the claims of the truth of the two gospels, and to bring in more harmonizing links! lor the strengthening of tin great chain of Bible facts, we will call the reader's attention to! some f the teachings of the twelve aposcles; for between PtyuJ and them there is harmony; andi whero there is harmony, Shore is truth, and where then is trwth, there God is. So now going to the Acts of the Apost les, and beginning with the first chapter, we find that they preach not one word against the Jaw, or the rights of the law. TbfV only add that Jesus Christ i0 the allsaving power, and they ' N-sn.wd(l strkt oliedienco uu-to ' the raw, as the keeping of the commandment IdGod. Yet the anostles woro falsely jur-cusi' l, especially Stephen, and J thfllV aOCttiei' had to bring in juiriimst tlu-i.: , that ttiey niut tinu did preach or speak against the holy place, and agamst the law of Moses, .and against God This is plain evidonc-1 that the law and customs woro taught by the twelve,apostles. (Soo Acts, f.Ui. ch.. II, 12, 18th. vs.) From this the readflf. will plainly see that if t'no apc-attea would have said anything against G,l, Mos ;(,s naH l)u, h, v. it would not have I been necessary that tho.v should have had au horned men to sweat f ilsol.v against them, that they j did teach Against it Heneo we see from this, that they did not change nie ortiinances ot the law in any sbapo or furoi whatever The only thing was that redemp tion caste by Jesus Christ in obedience f the law. And from this source, sprang up many false touchers, from the fact that ol Amnion, and of Moab- And they did noi fully comprehend : their children spake half in the Ihe deep Meaning ol the apoato- hW kthdad and could ,,o. lie doctrine. !

Now this consolation was given nftqr Paul and Barnabas had with stood those falso teachers, und still after they bad been scot up to Jerusalem to soo about the mallei, And even when they wero there, and after the churca authorities had assembled together, they found men behoving in the saving power of the gospol of cireumei sion, and contending that it was right to circumcise tho Genttlos, as much so, as it was tho Jews, This was the doctrine that these men preachod, and argued that, was the way to be saved; and whenever a question of doctrine arose, and could not be satisfactor ily answered in the obuteb, then I ihe apostles and olders wore called , lOKOthw. to weigh lhe mf Ao( eV0I1 Hmon t, ,boPa woro sometimes, much disputing upon such topics, which goes to show that this false doctrine was hold at 1 Lj.it .. . 1 . .
