Was it compulsory for the earliest Christians in the book of Acts to share their possessions? This article considers this question in the light of passages like Acts 2:44-45 and Acts 4:32-35, which speak of sharing of possessions among the earliest believers. This article is a response to the view that Luke presents this practice as mistaken.
How is possible that one can lie against the Holy Spirit? This article affirms that to lie to office bearers as they do their work is to lie against the Holy Spirit. One lies to the Holy Spirit by lying to the church in general by failing to keep promises and vows (Acts 5:3-9). Awareness that this is lying against God and treasuring the work of the Spirit will keep one from committing these sins.
