ANY OTHER WAY TO BE SAVED? BY STEVE FINNELL

Galatians 1:8 Let God's curses fall on anyone, including myself, who preaches any other way to be saved than the one we told you about; yes, if an angel comes from heaven and preaches any other message, let them be forever cursed. (TLB-Paraphrased)

HOW CONVERTS TO CHRISTIANITY IN THE NEW TESTAMENT WERE NOT SAVED

1. No convert was told to say a sinner's prayer in order to be saved.

2. No infant was sprinkled with water in order to saved them.

3. No persons were told they were saved by grace alone.

4. Nobody was told they were saved by faith only.

5. No one was told to pray until they felt like they were saved.

WHAT DID ALL THE CONVERTS IN THE NEW TESTAMENT HAVE IN COMMON?

They all followed the teaching of Jesus. Mark 16:16 He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned. (NASB)

On the Day of Pentecost the apostle Peter preach the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. He preached Jesus as Lord and Christ. He told the to repent and be baptized.
Acts 2:22-41......So then, those who received his word were baptized; and that day there were added about three thousand souls. (NASB)
The three thousand believed and were baptized in water.

Peter did not tell them to say a sinner's prayer. He did not tell them they had been saved by faith only. He did not inform them that they had been saved by grace alone. He did not ask them to have their unbelieving infants baptized in order to be saved. He did not say to pray until they felt saved.

All converts in the book of Acts believed and were baptized.
Acts 16:31-34
Acts 16:15-16
Acts 8:12
Acts 8:35-38
Acts 22:16
Acts 19:3-5
Acts 10:34-48

Every person saved under the new covenant believed and was immersed in water. Jesus said it, how could anyone honestly doubt it. (Mark 16:16)
