Overview: God Has Shown Me That I Should Not Call Anyone Unclean / Acts 10:9-33
God gives Peter, and us that are followers of Jesus Christ today, a great lesson in the concept of love. In the ancient days of the Jews, from long before Jesus Christ lived on this earth in the flesh, until even far into the days of Peter and the apostles in the beginning of the first century church age, the Jews held a terrible attitude towards the gentile peoples of the world.
At some point in time, the Jews had decided that ALL Gentiles were unclean, according to the Levitical law that God had given them in the Old Testament. This law was one that God laid down for them, as a way to live before Him in holiness and purity. This, calling ALL Gentiles unclean meant that they considered ALL peoples of the world, that weren't Jewish, to be like the terrible and disgusting swine that God had forbid the Jews NOT to eat.
Did God ever call Gentiles unclean? Just how bad was calling Gentiles unclean anyway? What attitude did the Jews have to have towards Gentiles to call them unclean?
I answer all of these questions and more in this message titled, "God Has Shown Me That I Should Not Call Anyone Unclean".
