According to the Bible, we cannot trust our feelings to know whether or not we are saved. Also, consider the apostle Paul. He lived before God in all good conscience but admits he did it ignorantly in unbelief. Just because his conscience did not tell him he was wrong in persecuting Christians does not mean that he was right with God while doing so.
There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.
He who trusts in his own heart is a fool, But whoever walks wisely will be delivered.
And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord who has enabled me, because He counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry, although I was formerly a blasphemer, a persecutor, and an insolent man; but I obtained mercy because I did it ignorantly in 바카라사이트 unbelief. And the grace of our Lord was exceedingly abundant, with faith and love which are in Christ Jesus.
Then Paul, looking earnestly at the council, said, “Men and brethren, I have lived in all good conscience before God until this day.”
You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only.
So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.
The One Baptism
Baptism is mentioned in several ways in the Holy Vible. There is the baptism of repentance, the baptism of fire, the baptism of the Holy Spirit, the baptism of Moses, baptism for the dead, baptism of suffering, water baptism, etc. Ephesians 4:4-6 says there is one baptism. Since the Bible is without error or contradiction, we must conclude that the one baptism is the baptism commanded by the Lord and the apostles and the one in effect today. This one baptism (water immersion in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins) is plainly shown in examples throughout the New Testament where believers were converted.
He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.
Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”
And now why are you waiting? Arise and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord.
Corresponding to that, baptism now saves you–not the removal of dirt from the flesh, but an appeal to God for a good conscience–through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, (NAS)
“Can anyone forbid water, that these should not be baptized who have received the Holy Spirit just as we have?” And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then they asked him to stay a few days.
Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
Ephesians 4:4-6 There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
