Mr. Wellman ,

Do you believe and practice these scriptures?

Mark 16:17, Acts 2:4

Thank you,

Mrs. Jenkins. Answer me this first: Do you do practice these (more important) Scriptures? For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me” (Matt 25:35-36) as unto Him (Matt 25:40)? Or nothing for Him (Matt 25:41-46) which is most critical. I sense you stress water or the blood of Christ and that Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection and Hid shed blood was not enough, so you essentially must believe Jesus + baptism = salvation. That is works! Repent of this or (Matt 25:41…

Yes, I do as often as I can and am prompted to.

I believe salvation is through Christ alone, not works or baptism.

Could you answer my question please?

Thank you,

Yes, I believe there are those who can speak other “languages” which is what the Greek calls it. Yes, I believe a person needs to believe in the Lord and then be baptized.

As for the few Bible verses that mention baptism and salvation in the same sentence (only 2 – 4 or so) there are dozens more that never, ever mention baptism, so do you believe and practice these veres?

EPh 2:8-9 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.

Acts 16:31
And they said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household.” In this chapter, the jailer and then his whole household believed…and a few verses later, they were baptized. They were saved WITHOUT baptism, then, can’t you see that?

So I will ask you, do you practice these, but more importantly, do you believe them?

John 3:16
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

John 5:24
Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life.

Romans 10:9-10
Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.

Romans 6:23
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

and many, many more.

Perhaps you could find a good study Bible or enroll in a good Bible course (ttb.org is among the best) because you are in great error if you believe that you need baptism to seal our souls. I pray you do not teach others this same doctrinal or Scriptural error.
