Shalom Safaris East Africa's comment on 2020-09-06 01:40:47:

Acts 15:1- 7 Its by grace that we as gentiles were brought in.

1 And certain men which came down from Judaea taught the brethren, and said, Except ye be circumcised after the manner of Moses, ye cannot be saved.

2 When therefore Paul and Barnabas had no small dissension and disputation with them, they determined that Paul and Barnabas, and certain other of them, should go up to Jerusalem unto the apostles and elders about this question.

6 And the apostles and elders came together for to consider of this matter.

7 And when there had been much disputing, Peter rose up, and said unto them, Men and brethren, ye know how that a good while ago God made choice among us, that the Gentiles by my mouth should hear the word of the gospel, and believe.

There is a deeper spiritual meaning of things strangled, meaning beware of "practices" that are not truths. God's word is life and when we make light of God's word we are strangling the truth

abstaining from blood. does this mean that blood transfusion is wrong as it gets blood into ones body as does ingestion through the mouth?

By obeying this scripture we can save ourselves from so many various diseases and emotional pain. The end of this scripture is very true because it says that if we do these things it will be well with us. This helps us to enjoy relatively good physical and emotional well being.
