According to Acts there are no exceptions given and no where does it say it is of no effect. Paul was not involved in this decision as far as we know in Acts. Does he have the authority to overrule it?<quoted text>
1. I know exactly what I am talking about. Follow the conversation and follow along in your Bible. If we do not know what has been done to our food before we eat it, if the Acts 15 council is in effect still, do we sin if we unintentionally eat food that has been offered to an idol?
Every decision in the bible was decided at a specific time and a specific situation. The decision of rescinding this prohibition of the Acts council according to the Catholics was at Florence. The bible gives no point and time for the doing away of this requirement.<quoted text>2. The Jerusalem council was at a specific time in a specific situation. Acts is also set in a transitional time in the history of the church. The divisions and issues between Jew and Gentile is gone. Idol's temples are for the most part in the dustbin of history, except in a few places. Since there is no longer any division between Jew and Gentile, not much issues with idols temples and meat markets, and no Judaizers from Jerusalem coming to teach the brethren they must obey the law of Moses and be circumcised to be saved, then the council's decision does not have nearly the effect on us as it did then.
Paul's teaching on the conscience and food in the meat market can still be effectively discussed and applied today.
