The Love of God and God's Purpose for Creation
A recent discussion on a FB page brought to light a common misconception regarding the writings available to the early believers. I have heard it questioned or stated more than once that these folks had no scriptures to study. The discussion questioned the need to spend time studying the bible rather than just reading it or even not reading and receiving enlightenment directly from God. It becomes clear that this belief stems from a lack of even a cursory reading of scripture, mainly in the books of Acts.
