Conception and New Birth Conception and New Birth Life begins at Conception, with the union of seed & egg, with the union of the Gospel & faith If conversion is described as being born again, what would be and when does conception occur? If different than being a child of God at what point in time and by what event does the believer receive atonement and become saved?

If in part, what parts? What scriptural authority is used for dissection? Does the New Testament solely of itself contain sufficient instruction for a believer to be saved and to ultimately inherit eternal life? Does the New Testament contain any commandments enforceable against the believer? What are they? Does the New Testament rank or prioritize the commandments enforceable against the believer? What is the ranking or priority? What insight does analysis of the foundational scripture provide? What insight does analysis of the foundational scripture provide?

PowerPoint Presentation:

In 2011 I participated as a juror for a Coroner’s Inquest. The judge’s instructions to the jury included the weighing of evidence. Two types of evidence exist, conclusive evidence (i.e. which cannot be refuted) and circumstantial evidence which must be critically analyzed to determine its admissibility, worth and value in assisting to come to a verdict. EVIDENTIARY HEARING SIDEBAR During the legal process, there is also times when issues arise that require specific discussion between the judge, crown and defence, this process is known as a ... THIS IS THE METHODOLOGY THE FOLLOWING MATERIAL IS PRESENTED WITH Slide 3

describes what happens in a chemical reaction a process that leads to the transformation of one set of chemical substances to another CHEMICAL REACTION CHEMICAL EQUATION can be either spontaneous, requiring no input of energy, or non-spontaneous, often coming about only after the input of some type of energy identifies the reactants (starting materials) and products (resulting substances) Slide 4

CATALYST Reaction Reaction NON-SPONTANEOUS CHEMICAL REACTION Slide 5

PowerPoint Presentation:

Salvation likewise is similar to a non-spontaneous chemical reaction having two reactants with a uniquely exclusive catalyst that results in an integrated interdependent interactive simultaneously producing naturally occurring products and by-products reaction, Slide 6 Just as fire has many by-products... light heat smoke sound fumes ashes so likewise does salvation.

PowerPoint Presentation:

NONE of the sermons instruct the audience to be baptized ONLY 36% mention repentance 100% of the sermons include the Gospel (documented in verses indicated in black font) There are eleven documented sermons on salvation recorded in the book of Acts as follows: Acts 2:14-36 23-32 Acts 3:12-26 13-15 Acts 4:8-12 10 & 33 Acts 5:29-32 29-32 Acts 10:34-43 39-41 Acts 13:16-41 28-29 Acts 17:22-31 31 Acts 20:18-35 24 Acts 22:1-21 8-16 Acts 26:2-23 23 Acts 7:2-54 52 Stephen Peter Paul Acts 6:30,31 Acts 8:25 Acts 14:7 Acts 14:21 Acts 16:10 Acts 17:3 Acts 17:18 JUSTIFICATION BY FAITH EVIDENTIARY HEARING SERMONS RECORDED IN ACTS Further instances of the Gospel being shared: Sermons to the Circumcision Sermons to the Uncircumcision While the book of Acts definitely includes instances of: Repentance, Baptism & Holy Ghost receipt. It’s the content, or rather what is absent from the content of the sermons found in the book of Acts that speaks volumes Slide 15

PowerPoint Presentation:

JUSTIFICATION BY FAITH EVIDENTIARY HEARING Analysis of the aforementioned sermons is NOT to minimize differing components but to emphasize and document the consistent teaching of the apostolic church ... ... that being, the consistent preaching of “the Gospel”. Act 16:30 ... what must I do to be saved ? Act 16:31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. Slide 16 SERMONS RECORDED IN ACTS REMEMBER: Repentance, Baptism, the Holy Ghost ... the Acts 2:38 statement is NOT the Gospel ... these can be preached without even ever mentioning Christ's death, burial and resurrection!! CONCLUSIVE EVIDENCE

Then prayed they him to tarry certain days. 10:1 There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius ... 11:13 And he shewed us how he had seen an angel in his house, which stood and said unto him, "Send men to Joppa, and call for Simon, whose surname is Peter; 10:5 ... he shall tell thee what thou oughtest to do. 11:14 ... whereby thou and all thy house shall be saved ." 10:33 Immediately therefore I sent to thee; and thou hast well done that thou art come.

Then prayed they him to tarry certain days. 11:18 When they {Elders at Jerusalem} heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life. JUSTIFICATION BY FAITH EVIDENTIARY HEARING SERMONS RECORDED IN ACTS Slide 17 It is interesting that in Peter's summary to the elders in Jerusalem, he neglects to mention the baptism of the converts. Odd how Peter in his message to provide “words whereby Cornelius would be saved" never mentions baptism but rather focuses on the Gospel and justification by faith CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE TOP QUALITY

JUSTIFICATION BY FAITH Did the Apostolic church preach: “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved” or that justification was by faith? EVIDENTIARY HEARING It is apparent that from both recorded sermons and recorded conversion experiences that the Apostolic church consistently preached “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved” RULING Slide 19
