Acts 使徒行傳 15:7-11 

7 After much discussion, Peter got up and addressed them: “Brothers, you know that some time ago God made a choice among you that the Gentiles might hear from my lips the message of the gospel and believe. 8 God, who knows the heart, showed that he accepted them by giving the Holy Spirit to them, just as he did to us. 9 He did not discriminate between us and them, for he purified their hearts by faith. 10 Now then, why do you try to test God by putting on the necks of Gentiles a yoke that neither we nor our ancestors have been able to bear? 11 No! We believe it is through the grace of our Lord Jesus that we are saved, just as they are.”

7 經過長時間的辯論,彼得站起來,說:「諸位主內朋友,你們知道,上帝早已從你們當中選召了我,要我把福音的信息傳給外邦人,好使他們聽見而相信。
8 那洞察人心的上帝把聖靈賜給外邦人,如同賜給我們一樣,以此來表明他也接納外邦人。
9 在我們和他們之間,上帝不做任何區別,卻因為他們信而潔淨了他們的心。
10 既然這樣,你們現在為甚麼要試探上帝,把我們的祖先和我們自己所挑不起的擔子,放在外邦門徒的肩膀上呢?
11 這是不對的!我們相信我們得救是藉著主耶穌的恩典,是跟他們一樣的。」
