An outsider becomes a family member Last week we did some theology on who the current “Gentiles” are in our world. That is to say, who are the people who are having a hard time getting into the church, like the Gentiles did in the New Testament. One person suggested that those who do the good works of God but are unrecognized by the church are, and one of our pastors, Julie, led us to consider chapter 10 of Acts, where Cornelius is granted entry into the church. But how is he granted entry into the church? How is he “cleansed?” And what does that mean for us today? I want to explore that here.
