Hello Hojo, how are you?
I gave you Scripture not my opinion. Blessings
"Bible Only" interpretation of Sacred Scripture is like reading the "editorial section" of your local newspaper. "Everybody" has an opinion!! "Everyone" has a (personal view or judgment! "Everybody's opinion" is the (according to them) is the truth! As in the case of Protestant "bible interpretation"--- there are now exists over 42,000 conflicting, contradicting and inconsistent "editorial opinions" ALL CLAIMING TO HAVE THE TRUTH!--The fact is that NONE OF THEM are only --HALF-TRUTH at best. All a person has to do is to look at the Protestant "bible only" mis-interpretations of Scripture to see the (hodge=podge) "contradicting (mess) of bible interpretation that have bought into "secular humanism" that has caused a "cancerous immoral degredation" of Protestant bible only
(division) within the Christian community! i.e abortion, homosexuality, euthenasia, woman ministers, gay marriage, embroyonic stem cell research, homosexual ministers, and on and on, whichever way the "political wind" happens to blow.---The fact is that there has, is and will continue to be (as it has for over 2000 years, ONLY ONE TRUTH,(not 42,000 contradiction (relative truths)--and that TRUTH is in the TRUE biblical intrepretation and TRUE historical teachings, doctrine and precepts of Jesus Christ, manifested (in and through) Our Lords One True Apostolic Catholic Church in the FULLNESS OF THE FAITH and in the FULLNESS OF THE TRUTH!!

I'm not seeking your approval. I'm seeking scriptural justification for you to say so BOLDLY that baptism has no role in saving.
Please don't use verses like John 3:16 to back up that statement. Show me why it was so unimportant for all of the people that believed a statement like John 3:16 was true, to still obey the command to be baptized. If it is of no use, why do it?
Why did Jesus do it?
Why did Paul do it?
Why did the 3000 at Pentecost do it?
Why did Lydia do it?
Why did the Eunuch do it?
Why did the jailor do it?
Why was it even mentioned if it plays no saving role?
Like I have told Hank...show me where someone has been condemned for not being baptized? Why does scripture say we are only condemned if we lack faith?

Now here you say the right thing and I'm sure you agree this can be done any day.
And it's not through water-baptism we get "in Christ" but through Faith, fyi,:)
No. I do not believe the memorial can be done any day. We're told that they came together on the 1st day of the week. There is only one first day each week.

But, of course, baptism can be done any time, anywhere, and by anyone so long as there is much water, sufficient for immersion, and that the one being baptized is submitting to it for the forgiveness of sins after they have heard and believed the gospel, repented of the sin in their life and confessed before others, as Peter confessed, that they truly believe Jesus is the Christ.

For awhile, you had me fooled....
The Bible teaches, while upon earth, because Christ had the same Divinity as God, He had the power to forgive sins.
Mt 9:6 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house.
Mr 2:10 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins
Lu 5:24 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power upon earth to forgive sins,
Well...surprise surprise...He ain't upon earth any more!!!!
There is no Scripture that teaches, after Christ ascended into Heaven, that He did forgive sins nor that He has the power to do so...
According to you....when Christ taught we are to pray to the Father for forgiveness, He was mistaken????
Quote: After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Judgment seat of Christ....

Because faith will be obedient. Check out the hall of faith over in Heb. 11. Those people were saved though an OBEDIENT faith. I would suggest to you that they would've been condemned if their 'faith' had not been obedient to the commands they'd been given.

Jethro,

I cannot tell you how sorry I am for what you went through....

Believe me, you have every right to complain....I have done the same....went all the way up to the head of the hospital....

And, the next time I had to go there, I got the royal treatment....don't give up on your complaining......

Remember one thing, when you drink SODAS, they will help you become dehydrated.....try to stay with water or gatorade, something of that nature.....

I sure hope and pray that you are feeling better....

Hope your g/f sees that this could be a medical condition and reconsider coming back to you.....

Keep your chin up and you will be in my prayers....

Blessings!

I hope he/she may change his/her mind. It was a teaching which is revealed gradually in the gospels, the new testament, and the teachings of the early church.
The doctrine of the Trinity is encapsulated in Matthew 28:19, where Jesus instructs the apostles: "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit."

he does argue with the Baptists on hree and he did lie when he says that he doesnt play [word games] and we know that he did when he spoke about one word(protestantism) not being on military dog tags.
he doesnt believe the words written by John so he isnt going to beleive anyone else on here either.
he is a religion unto himself.
Good morning, Preston,

James 2:14-26

King James Version (KJV)


14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?

15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,

16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?

17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.

18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.

19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?

21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?

22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?

23 And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.

24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.

25 Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way?

26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

Why are we condemned Saban? What keeps us from eternal life? Faith?
