Read Acts 15 today.

This chapter includes the controversy, and the chosen resolution, regarding Gentiles who were coming to faith. Would they be required to fulfill all of the requirements of the Mosaic law? Which parts, if any are applicable?
One of the challenges with this issue is the tension between holiness and grace. On one hand holiness is a high standard established by God. Yet grace seems to suggest a low standard we are permitted to establish for ourselves. I know how I deal with this tension. How do you deal with it? If you were sitting in the room with the leaders of the church during that time, what would your opinion be?
Acts 15:19-21 NLT
“And so my judgment is that we should not make it difficult for the Gentiles who are turning to God. [20] Instead, we should write and tell them to abstain from eating food offered to idols, from sexual immorality, from eating the meat of strangled animals, and from consuming blood. [21] For these laws of Moses have been preached in Jewish synagogues in every city on every Sabbath for many generations.”
