22 “Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a Man attested by God to you by miracles, wonders, and signs which God did through Him in your midst, as you yourselves also know—23 Him, being delivered by the determined purpose and foreknowledge of God, you have taken by lawless hands, have crucified, and put to death; 24 whom God raised up, having loosed the pains of death, because it was not possible that He should be held by it. 25 For David says concerning Him:
‘I foresaw the LORD always before my face,
For He is at my right hand, that I may not be shaken.
26 Therefore my heart rejoiced, and my tongue was glad;
Moreover my flesh also will rest in hope.
27 For You will not leave my soul in Hades,
Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption.
28 You have made known to me the ways of life;
You will make me full of joy in Your presence.
The New King James Version. (1982). (). Nashville: Thomas Nelson.

here the Apostle peter reminds them that they know this is true, as if we are not going to argue about what they will or will not admit.
I’m not saying that we should act like this. I AM SAYING THAT WE SHOULD NOT ARGUE WITH PEOPLE WHO ARE LOOKING TO ARGUE SO THAT THEY CAN DISOBEY GOD.
