(b) When Peter was asked ,"weren’t you told not to teach in that name of Jesus."

Peter answered, "We ought to obey God rather than men."

(Ill.) I was giving a speech in a public speaking class in college, when the instructor took issue with my statement concerning the sin of homosexuality. What I said was, "Homosexuals would find their place in the Lake of Fire, that their sin was damnable." When I was asked where I got that information?, I replied," from God’s word." The teacher then instructed me that I could not use the Bible as a resource for his class. I let him know that the Bible is the only word that really matters, that long after he and I were gone the Word of God will still be alive. Fail me if you like, but I’ll get a passing grade from my heavenly Father."
