Thou shalt not get water baptized, though shalt not take communion - ever, etc.

    And even the ones that make an effort not to do that feel to me like they're still just straining out gnats to swallow camels. It just makes things way too complicated.

    Besides, if Paul was the first in the Body of Christ and he entered that Body in Acts 9 then how does that not settle the debate? I don't get it.

    I don't get it either. What I really don't get is the MADist at TOL being called Acts 28rs.

    I'm not sure it's a big deal either.
    But I do want the info on all the views.

    He does a pretty good job of contrasting the main differences between what he understands as A9D and what the 28er understands as A28D.

    Personally, they are brothers and sisters in the Lord.

    Not you; and what was said was meant as a ribbing.

    What was said was you "ALMOST 28ers, lol"

    Which is not the same as saying someone " is a 28er."

    In other words, rather than actually solving for the seeming problems the 28ers sees in Acts as to Paul's ministry, the 28er ends up ignoring them by coming up with solutions that are actually not solutions at all.

    The 28er arrives at these supposed solutions by way of an oversimplification of the passages.

    At the same time, it is the extreme to which he ends up taking his oversimplifications that ends him up a 28er.

    Charles Welch is its origin - the man simply concluded on some things too soon in the process of induction of information towards forming a working premise; deduction from said working premise to a conclusion; assertion from said conclusion.

    During his induction or information gathering; he ended up isolating some words and passages from the whole, and as a result, ended up at a working premise formed out of distinctions that are not really there.
