Mark 16:16-17 (KJV) He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned
I don't care how all the theologians try to explain it, you cannot be saved if you are not baptized. Every explanation I read or hear always contradicts itself by stating that "you cannot have one without the other, that the two together are for the completion of full salvation", but then they turn it around saying "you only have to believe to be saved" <<< that is an absolute lie of confusion from Hell that causes great confusion in many people and they decide not to get baptized because when they hear that information its then believed that is not necessary or required BY GOD. Many people also receive the gift of tongues or other such gifts, yet are still not baptized, meaning they are not complete or fully saved. To tell people its ok to be partially saved is to tell them they don't have to live by everything in the Bible, which is ultimately to condemn their souls!
Believing, like Loving is an action. It is a claim that mandates being followed by actions of commitment. The Bible gives us specific and clear instructions on how to live up to our belief in Christ. If you ignore those precepts by picking and choosing which ones you wish to live by for your own convenience, then what makes you think God is going to allow that kind of corrupted thinking back into Heaven? ...
