What about baptize?

Jack August 4, 2011 at 1:17 pm

Abraham was saved by faith and it was accounted to him as righteousness. Romans 8:29-30 “For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.”

If you are saying that baptism in necessary for salvation then you are saying that the all sufficiency of Christ’s atonement in His sacrifice was not enough to save. We must add to it a work of baptism.

Paul is clear about what saves:

Rom. 3:28 “For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from works of the Law.

Eph. 2:8-9, “For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God. Not by works, lest any man should boast.”

John 3:16 from Jesus’ own mouth “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

Acts 16:30-31 answers “How do I get saved?”

He then brought them out and asked, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household.” Plus NOTHING!

Also read Acts 4:12
