What the Org Says: bt chap. 13 p. 103 par. 9 - "One valuable lesson we learn is that we need to trust God’s organization.* Consider: The brothers in Antioch knew that the governing body was made up entirely of Christians of Jewish background. Yet, they trusted that body to settle the question of circumcision in harmony with the Scriptures."
But What Does the Bible Really Teach?
At Galations 2:1-9, the apostle Paul's words are crystal clear - he was divinely inspired to tell those in Jerusalem that circumcision was not required for Christians. (v2)
He taught them - not the other way around! Galatians 2:6 - "But regarding those who seemed to be important......those highly regarded men imparted nothing new to me.
The apostle Paul was used to settle the circumcision issue - not a fictitious "governing body."
The Brooklyn hierarchy dictates that the circumcision issue proves Christ appointed a "governing body" in the first century. The Bible's account proves that the Brooklyn hierarchy are charlatans! ("a person who falsely pretends to know or be something in order to deceive people". Merriam-Webster dictionary)
*One valuable lesson we learn is that we need to waken up to the perversions of the business corporation which masquerades as "God’s" organization and "keeps transforming itself into an angel of light." (2 Cor. 11:14)
