Call an oncologist and ask that doctor if he/she would rather see their patients cancer in remission, or cured completely.

And remission of sins and forgiveness of sins are not the same thing either.

Rightly divide the word of truth.

Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, Acts 2:38

16 And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins,(Acts 22:16)

7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; (Eph. 1:7)

******

Acts 2:38 says - remission of sins

Acts 22:16 says - wash away thy sins,

Eph. 1:7 says -- forgiveness of sins


*All of the above refer to the very same thing.

No use in going to an oncologist when dealing with spiritual matters. Just open your NT and read till you find the answer.

4 Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ)(Eph. 3:3,4)

3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness,(2Peter 1:3)

Remission does not mean cured. It does not mean forgiven completely either.

Yet complete forgiveness was what Paul preached. If you trust that Christ died FOR your sins. Peter, James, and John NEVER preached this, and Paul NEVER preached Acts 2:38.

Now, the NIV changes "remission" to "forgiveness." It also changes about 46,500 other words and verses.

"W" -... Peter, James, and John NEVER preached this, and Paul NEVER preached Acts 2:38."

Me - You contend that there are two different gospels being preaches in the NT.

Is this your position?

Galatians 2 makes it clear that there is a gospel OF the circumcision (Peter, James, and John) and a gospel OF the uncircumcision.
Peter, James, and John NEVER preached saved by grace through faith. They NEVER preached being justified BY the faith of Jesus Christ as Paul did (Galatians 2:16) but rather the circumcision being justified by their works, and James 2 outlines to the 12 tribes scattered abroad (James 1:1).

Paul preached what was given to him by the resurrected Christ. What gospel was that? That Christ died for your sins, was buried, and resurrected for your justification.

Peter, James, and John NEVER preached this to the circumcision before they met Paul, nor after. Paul's gospel, and he calls it MY GOSPEL in Romans 2:16 and in Romans 16, is the gospel that he references in Galatians 1. ANY OTHER GOSPEL than what he was given is a false, accursed gospel.

And it does not include water.

So you agree you teach two different gospel.

Is this your position.

6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:
7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.(Gal. 1:6-9)

Cornelius was never told by Peter that Christ died for his sins and was resurrected for his justification. On the contrary.

And for that matter, why was Peter having such a hard time going to this Gentile anyway? Did what Christ told him in Matthew 28:19 slip his mind? Mark 16:14-20? God had to tell him THREE TIMES to go see the man, and then when he gets there, Peter has to ask him why he sent for him.

So much for that whole "Great Commission" thing, huh.

33 Immediately therefore I sent to thee; and thou hast well done that thou art come. Now therefore are we all here present before God, to hear all things that are commanded thee of God.(Acts 10:33)

*Now what did Peter "command" Cornelius to do?

48 And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord.(Acts 10:48)



*What kind of baptism?

38 And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him. 39 And when they were come up out of the water(Acts 8:38,39)



*Why were these people immersed in water?

..for the remission of sins,...(Acts 2:38)


*Where did the Lord place those who were baptized?

And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.(Acts 2:47)

He (the Lord) placed them in the church.

All the saved are located in the church.

There are no saved located outside of the Lords church.

...even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.(Eph. 5:23)

Jesus will only save those in the body.

What is the body? The church

William, what church will lead me to heaven?

__________ church will lead you to heaven.

Why is it so difficult for people to answer this simple question?

If I was in a church which I thought would help save men I would not hesitate to name it.

No church will "lead" you to heaven. The only thing that will get you to heaven is by hearing, believing, and trusting that Jesus Christ died FOR your sins, was buried, and resurrected FOR your justification. When you trust what was done FOR you, God seals you with the holy spirit and adds you to the Body of Christ. A spiritual body with Christ as it's head, not some man-made local assembly. And no man-made local assembly that doesn't preach to people that Christ died FOR their sins is going to help anyone get anywhere.

If you are counting on some church to help get you to heaven apart from the gospel given to Paul, you are perverting the gospel of Jesus Christ, which is what Paul references in Galatians 1.

He calls it "MY GOSPEL" in Romans 2:16

What is that gospel?

1 Corinthians 15:1-4

Peter never knew that Christ died FOR the sins of those Jews at Pentecost, and in Acts 2:37, those Jews never asked Peter "what must we do TO BE SAVED?" either.

Acts 2:38 is not the gospel, nor is it even part of the gospel.

1....the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.(Acts 2:47)

So the Lord placed the saved in the church.



23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.(Eph. 5:23)

...he is the saviour of the body.(Eph. 5:23)

...he is the saviour of the body.(Eph. 5:23)

...he is the saviour of the body.(Eph. 5:23)


Body = Church (Eph. 1:22,23)(Col.1:18)

How many churches?

20 But now are they many members, yet but one body.(1Cor.12:20)

20 But now are they many members, yet but one body.

20 But now are they many members, yet but one body.

20 But now are they many members, yet but one body.

The above verses prove the Lord means to save those who decide to enter the church of Christ (body of Christ) by baptism (Rom. 16:16)(Rom. 7:4).

the body of Christ;

The churches of Christ

Similar to Noah entering the ark.

Question did Noah have to do something to be saved? YES

Did Noah save himself?

YES,in a way he did.

Could Noah have been saved without Gods instructions (grace)? NO

You see, grace provides it does not cover.

All we need to do is read (Titus 2:11,12) to learn this lesson.

11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,

Verse 11 shows the grace of God. This includes the sending of Gods Son to earth and Him dying on the cross and all other things the Lord does for man.

12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world

Notice verse 12 starts out "teaching us" and then gives man some guidelines he must meet if he wants to be saved. There are some things man must not do and there are some thing man must do if he wants to be saved. One might call this a law (the NT LAW). Note (Jer. 31:31-24)(Heb. 8:6-13)

31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:
32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:
33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.

(Heb.9:15-17)(Heb.10:9.10)(2Co r.3)(Eph. 2:14-16)(Col. 2:14-17)

I very seriously doubt it. They did, so why haven't you?

If you want to take that road allow me to ask you a question.

Do you wash feet (Jn 13)?

5 After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded.
6 Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet?
7 Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter.
8 Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.
9 Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.
10 Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.
11 For he knew who should betray him; therefore said he, Ye are not all clean.
