Although the majority of Christians have little or no knowledge of the event, a pivotal moment in the history of the Church is recorded in Acts 10.
This event was the conversion of the household of the Roman centurion Cornelius, and with this event it became clear that one did not have to become a Jew in order to become a Christian, opening the door to a wave of conversions from people of all nations and keeping Christianity from remaining an ethnically Jewish phenomenon.
But the conversion of Cornelius is controversial. It was in its own day, and it is in ours as well.
Some try to draw lessons from it like everyone should speak in tongues upon their conversion to Christ . . . or that baptism is merely a symbol that does not convey God’s grace.
