I discount no part of scripture. It is all the perfect word of God. And so any verse you post I will nod in agreement with what it is saying.

Peter pushing circumcision (a return to the old law) and being chastised by Paul for it; which is written by Paul in Galations does not mean we discount the entire book of Acts written by Luke just because it is the history and introduction of the New Covenant (Acts 2:36-38).

Jesus said to Nicodemus in John 3:5 - "No one can enter the Kingdom of God unless they are born of the water and of the spirit." We absolutely receive the Holy Spirit.

As for works and faith. They are both extremely necessary and it's heresy to say they are false doctrine for....James (Jesus' brother) mentions the dire importance of having both. James 2:14 - "What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him?" James 2:17 - "Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead." James 2:18 - "But someone will say, 'You have faith and I have works.' Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works." James 2:20 - "But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead?" James 2:21 - "Was not Abraham our father justified by his works...? James 2:22 - "Do you see that faith was working together with his works and by works faith was made perfect?" James 2:24 - "You see then that a man is justified by works and not by faith only..." James 2:26 - "For as the body without the spirit is dead, faith without works is dead also."

If I'm going to be judged by the word of God on the last day I'm going to believe the entire Word of God. So many want to pick and choose to suit their own beliefs. I am not so bold as to tell the creator of the universe that I don't agree with what He said and will change it for Him.
