Calf 1-877-338-5474 or online at Mark 16:16 - Three Individuals Larry IL Keenan, Pastor Mark 16:16 is another verse, which those who adhere to the false doctrine of baptismal regeneration, cling to tenaciously. This verse comes in sec- ond as the most used next to Acts 2:38. Those who use this verse gener- ally believe in salvation by works and the false idea that one can fall away and be lost again. This verse posi- tively says that the one who believes and is baptized "shall be saved." How- ever, they actually believe that a per- son MAY BE saved which is a posi- tion of doubt, not faith. There are two things in this verse which are seldom considered. First is the fact that salvation is promised to faith. The reader should carefully read such verses as Acts 16:31, John 3:14- 18, 3:36, 6:47, 20:31 and John 1:12. The remission of sins is also promised at the point of faith. In Acts 10:43, we read that "all the prophets" gave wit- ness that "whosoever ~ in him shall receive remission of sins." But, "all the prophets" did not preach bap- tism. This again points up the impor- tance of faith and the fact that it elimi- nates infants as they do not have the capacity to exercise faith or belief. No amount of twisting the scriptures or man-made tradition can change this fact. Bob L. Ross, in his book &CArl 2:38 and Baptismal Remission puts it this way: Every blessing promised in any verse of Scripture which men- tions baptism is in other verses prom- ised to faith without any consider- ation of baptism; however, nowhere is a blessing ever promised to baptism without consideration of faith." The verse does say that the one who be- lieves and is baptized shall be saved But we can just as easily say that one who believes and prays shall be saved or, one who believes and studies the Bible shall be saved. It is belief or faith that makes possible all other blessings associated with salvation. The second consideration which is overlooked in Mark 16:16 is the im- plied third person involved. We know from the verse that the person who" believes and is baptized shall be saved and the person who does not believe is damned, but what about the third per- son who is not specifically mentioned? There is always a period of time be- tween the exercise of faith and the actual getting into the baptismal wa- ters. I ask the reader, what is the condi- tion of this person? He believes but has not yet been baptized. What, accord- ing to the word of God, is the condition of this individual's soul? He isn't damned because he has repented and believed. Should he die in this condi- tion, would he have the blessings asso- ciated with faith? The answer is found in John 3:18 which tells us that the believer is not condemned. The teach- ings of mere mortal men can lead your soul to hell but only God's infallible word can lead you to heaven. Faith comes from hearing God's Word (Ro- mans 10:17). More next issue.
