"Ananias & Sapphira"
Acts 4:32 - 5:16 or Story 126 in The Gospel Story Bible
Why were people giving their money to the apostles? (They were giving money that came from selling everything they had to support the work of the church. The apostles were giving the money to those who were in need.)
What did Ananias & Sapphira do wrong? (They lied about how much money they were giving to the apostles. They kept some of the money for themselves.)
Who did they lie to? How did Peter know? (Peter, bot most importantly God; The Holy Spirit made sure Peter knew what had happened.)
Why did God have to kill Ananias & Sapphira? (This is rather harsh to say, but we must remember that God is the author of life and He is the very same God as He always has been. He was not going to allow His church to be corrupted.)
Praise God for the way He pours out His Spirit for everyone who believes!
Q.7. In how many persons does this one God exist?
A. In three persons.
