<095> Thesis: When is "separating from brethren" hypocrisy and when is it required behavior? Introduction: Last week we looked into Paul's description of the motives, cause, and actions of Cephas as a basis for understanding Paul's public confrontation of him. On the face of it, before the "moral police" from James arrived, Peter was treating fellow believers who were Gentiles as if they were fellow believers. Then, after those "moral police" showed up, he began to treat those fellow believers as if they were not fellow believers. This evening we are going to look a bit further into why Paul took offense when he, himself, insisted that all believers be "moral police" on some occasions.
