A King had a male servant who, in all circumstances always said to him; My king, do not be discouraged because everything God does is perfect, no mistakes. One day, they went hunting and a wild animal attacked the king, the servant managed to kill the animal but couldn't prevent his majesty from losing a finger. Furious and without showing gratitude, the King said; if God was good, I would not have been attacked and lost one finger. The servant replied, 'despite all these things, I can only tell you that God is good and everything He does is perfect, He is never wrong'. Outraged by the response, the king ordered the arrest of his servant. While being taken to prison, he told the king again, God is Good & Perfect. Another day, the king left alone for another hunt and was captured by savages who use human beings for sacrifice. On the altar, the savages found out that the king didn't have one finger in place, he was released because he was considered not "complete" to be offered to the gods. On his return to the palace, he ordered the release of his servant and said; My friend, God was really good to me. I was almost killed but for lack of a single finger, I was let go. But I have a question; If God is so good, why did He allow me to put you in prison? His servant replied; My king, if I had not been put in prison, I would have gone with you, and would have been sacrificed, because I have no missing finger. Everything God does is perfect, He is never wrong. Often we complain about life, and the negative things that happen to us, forgetting that everything happens for a purpose. God is good and perfect!!

Thank you all for your wonderful comments, may the good Lord bless you and yours in many ways.... I am saved by the saving grace of God through baptism over ten years now.. I am trying so hard to live faithfully till Christ returns. I know that my labour shall not be in vain... 1 Corinthians 15:58

 

Baptism is not a necessity for salvation.

 

What about the thief on the cross or someone who, in their dying breath asks forgiveness and accepts Jesus as their personal saviour?

 

What we learn from the saved thief on the cross is that we are all sinners in need of a Saviour, and no matter the number of our sins and no matter if we,

or the world, think our sins are minor or extreme, it is never too late to repent and accept the free gift of salvation

 

Baptism is the symbol of what has already occurred in the heart and life of one who has trusted Christ as their Saviour  (Romans 6:3-5;Galatians 3:27;Colossians 2:12)

 

Salvation is as simple as this.

 

Admit your sinful state when compared to God's moral perfection.

This admission is called repentance toward God (Acts 20:21

)

Believe on Jesus Christ who died to pay your sin debt to God. He not only died as your substitute, He rose to life again as proof of God's satisfaction with His work. This is faith toward our Lord Jesus (Acts 20:21)

Completely finished - there is nothing else you need to do.

 

Salvation is a grace gift from God to all who will receive Christ.

 

Simply trust Him. When you do, God exchanges your sin for Christ's righteousness - forever!

Baptism is the commandment from Jesus Christ Himself (Mark 16:15-16; Matthew 28:19). It was implemented by the apostles on the day of Pentecost, those who believed were commanded to repent and be baptized for the remission of their sins (Acts 2:38). Everybody who believed the gospel were baptized (Acts 8:36-39; Acts 18:8-9; Acts 10:48; Acts 19:1-7), all these tell us that baptism is very important because the apostles taught and preached it as they were led by the Holy Spirit. The thief on the cross died before Christianity and Jesus Christ whilst on earth had the power to forgive sins (Mark 2:10) so the thief on the cross was not a Christian because Christianity started on the day of Pentecost. Thanks and may God bless you

The bible the Word of God tells us that that salvation is received by faith alone.

 

Joh 3:16  For God so loved the world that He gave His only-begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

 

Eph 2:9  not of works, lest anyone should boast.

 

Baptism is an important step of obedience after salvation but cannot and is not  a requirement for salvation.

John the baptist said that Jesus baptizes with the Holy Spirit... So I think that means that you can still be Saved without being baptized in water...

suppose you are telling an old man on his death bed the story of Jesus Christ. Half way through your story the man dies without believing, will he be saved?

What about John 3:1-5?

John 1:5 -

Joh 3:5  Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

 

Water / Spirit - one in the same

 

John 4:13  Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:
John 4:14  But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
 

Born of water - is not representing baptism here or I think Christ would have said Baptized

Here Paul gives a very detailed account of the Gospel (1 Corinthians 15:1-8). 

 

Why does he not say that baptism is necessary for salvation?

 

1Co 15:1  And, brothers, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you have received, and in which you stand;

1Co 15:2  by which you also are being kept safe, if you hold fast the word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain.

 

What saves us is the cleansing work of the Holy Spirit, when we are born again and regenerated by the Holy Spirit.

 

Tit 3:5 

“not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit,”

Being saved is not dependent on us committing sins though remember, it is about where our heart is and the desire to be forgiven for our committed sins =)

That is sometimes a big misunderstanding in some people!

Thank you all for your comments with your contributions, may the good Lord bless you all...

 

 Let us consider this passage in Mark 16:15-16, Jesus said "one who believes and is baptized shall be saved" and also Acts 2:36-47

 

If Jesus said that we must chew and swallow to live, will you live if you only chew, but not swallow?

 

Jesus said it takes two things to be saved: belief and baptism. Belief by itself does not equal salvation. Baptism by itself does not equal salvation.

 

Consider this passage also Numbers 21:4-9.... Why did God tell Moses to make a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole so that everyone that is bitten by the snake, when look upon it, shall live? Suppose you were there are you going to rest your assurance on your faith alone and ignore the fiery serpent? James 2:26

 

Thanks and God bless you all.

Chew

 

And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God. Luke 4:4

 

Beloved

 

And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water.

 

And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him.

 

And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me,

 

Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost.

 

And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God. John 1:31-34

 

Chew

 

Verily, verily, I say unto you,

 

He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me,

 

hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation;

 

but is passed from death unto life. John 5:24

:thumbsup:

 

Look Beloved

 

And the LORD said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live. Numbers 21:8

 

Look

 

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.

 

If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?

 

And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.

 

And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:

 

That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:11-15

 

~

 

Believe

 

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

 

Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

 

Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;

 

To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.

 

Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.

 

Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law. Romans 3:23-28

 

Be Blessed Beloved Of The KING

 

The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:

The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:

The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.

 

And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel; and I will bless them. Numbers 6:24-27

 

Love, Your Brother Joe

"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God" - Ephesians 3:8-9

We cannot earn a place in heaven by good doings, we have to have faith in Jesus and then God's grace will save us.

Water baptism does not save; only the blood Jesus shed on the cross saves.

Acts 16:30 And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?

Acts 16:31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
