Acts 8:12-13

Both men and women were baptized when they believed Philip as he preached the things concerning the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ. Then Simon himself also believed; and when he was baptized he continued with Philip..."


Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

John 3:36 states that "He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him. In John 5:24 Jesus says, "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life." Regardless of where you stand regarding "Do I need to be baptized in order to be saved?"--one thing is certain! We are to believe in Jesus, God's son, and in God the Father, who sent Him! And in His word, we see, repeatedly, that "both men and women were baptized when they believed!"

God Bless You!

--TODAY'S BIT OF WISDOM/REFLECTION:

It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians, not by religions, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ! For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here.

--FEATURED FUNNY:

I was in a car dealership a while ago, when a large motor home was towed into the garage. The front of the vehicle was in dire need of repair and the whole thing generally looked like an extra in "Twister."

I asked the manager what had happened. He told me that the driver had set the "cruise control" and then went in the back to make a sandwich.
