This week's lesson (October 7-13): the Controversy

If you're reading this, then you're probably a Gentile.

Yes, one of those people.

When the Israelites left Egypt, in other words, we were the ones who came after them in chariots.

And when David fought the Philistines, we rooted for Goliath.

The destruction of Jerusalem?

That was us.

Ditto the "mixed multitude" who caused all that trouble during the Exodus.

In short, there's good reason why Jewish Christians thought people like us shouldn't join the church -- not so long as we remained Gentiles.

But if God opened the door to people like us . . .

Then maybe we should think twice before we shut the door behind us.
