Will Non-Baptized Go To Heaven
Part 3
Not one time does any Scripture say that sins cannot be remitted without baptism. Not one time does the Bible say, without water baptism sins cannot be remitted, Not one time does the Bible say baptism has made you whole, but it does say, or Jesus says Your FAITH has made you whole and "without the shedding of blood is no remission" and "Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish" and many like expressions (Heb 9:22, Luke 13:1-5, Matt 18:1-3, Acts 3:19, John 3:1-5, etc.). There should be at least one simple statement in Scripture that says without water baptism one cannot be saved if it is so all important. No such statement can be found nor even one that hints such an idea,

Remission of sins by water baptism
contradicts hundreds of Scriptures, which say that sins are remitted, and men are saved,
By confession and faith from the heart (Rom 10:9-10, 1 John 1:9).
By calling upon the name of the Lord (Acts 2:21, Rom 10:9-13).
By believing on Jesus (John 3:16-18,26, Acts 10:43, 13:38-40, 16:31,
Rom 10:9-10, 1 Cor 1:21).
By repentance and faith in the gospel (Mark 1:14-15, Acts 20:21).
By receiving and believing that Jesus is the Christ (John 1:12, 1 John 5:1).
By repentance and conversion (Acts 3:19, 2 Cor 7:9-10).
By faith in His name (Matt 1:21, Acts 3:16, 4:10-12).
By the Word of God (1 Peter 1:23, James 1:18, John 3:5, 15:3).
Anybody ready to be saved By Jesus?

Remission of sins by water baptism reverses the whole order of the gospel, which is repentance and faith before baptism (Mark 1:14-15, Matt 21:32, Acts 20:21, Rom 10:9-10).
It contradicts hundreds of Scriptures, which say that sins are remitted, and men are saved, justified, sanctified, and washed from sins:
By grace through faith (Rom 3:24-25, Eph 2:8-9, Acts 15:8-9).
By faith without works (Rom 3:22-28, 4, 5:1, Gal 3:19-29).
By faith in the blood of Jesus (Rom 3:24-25, 5:9, Eph 1:7, Rev 1:5, 1 John 1:7, Matt 26:28, Heb 9:22, 1 Peter 1:18-23).
By the death of Christ (Rom 5:10-11, 1 Cor 15:1-5).
By the obedience of Christ (Rom 8:2).
By the Spirit of life in Christ (Rom 8:2).

Rom 8:24 That is why waiting does not diminish us, any more than waiting diminishes a pregnant mother. We are enlarged in the waiting. We, of course, don't see what is enlarging us.
Rom 8:25 But the longer we wait, the larger we become, and the more joyful our expectancy.
Rom 8:26 Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God's Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don't know how or what to pray, it doesn't matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans.
Rom 8:27 He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God.

You say that I say this,

You say >>>People who are not baptised but are born again Holy Spirit filled when thy die will thy go to heaven?<<<

I don't say this but have given scripture that clearly says you can be born again and are born again before you are baptized,And as a christian you should be baptized but that will not make you born again, the scriptures show that baptism is an outward work or symble of what has taken place in a persons heart when they are born again by the spirit of God threw Jesus by the power of the holy spirit.We are not living under a law, we are living under GRACE, this is the reason Jesus came to us to do what the Law could not do and that is remove our sins by the blood of Jesus.

The "water" in John 3:5 refers to the Word of God, as proved in John 15:3, 17:17, Eph 5:26, Rom 1:16, 1 Peter 1:18-23, James 1:18. It is by the Word of God and the Holy Spirit that men are born again. The new birth is a spiritual one and not physical as Nicodemus thought. No statement in any Scripture even hints that natural water could affect a spiritual birth. Therefore, since we have many plain statements that water is symbolic of cleansing by the Word of God, why not be consistent and take John 3:5 as referring to the Word of God? No other scripture can be given to support the idea of natural water in John 3:5 so that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word shall be established.

This is what is meant in Titus 3:5-6 by the "washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Ghost, which he [God, not some human baptizer in water] shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ." God sheds this upon men.

While in water baptism men plunge candidates into water.

Sins are actually washed by the blood (Rev 1:5, 7:14, 1 John 1:7), but they are symbolically washed in water as a testimony to the world of inward cleansing (1 Peter 3:21, Acts 22:16).

Glenn: You are not reading about the women that were working in the early church

This is straight from Pauls words,

There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. (Galatians 3:28) Romans 3:22

Are you also calling him blasphemous??

All races, classes, and sexes are one in Christ and equal in rights and privileges regarding gospel benefits.(1 Cor 12:13,28-31, Eph 1:20-23, 2:19-22, Col 3:11). The gulf between Jews and Gentiles, masters and slaves, male and female has been bridged by Christ and the gospel.[one in Christ Jesus] All Christians are one in unity, in rights, and in privileges (John 17:11,21-22, 1 John 5:7).

Glenn: Note how Jesus says these and them and they and not him or her>
John 17:11-18
11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.
12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition, that the scripture might be fulfilled.
13 And now come I to thee, and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.
14 I have given them thy word, and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

Look who John said that were saying that Jesus was baptizing{Pharisees}

Jesus Himself did not baptise!!

Amp>John 4:1 NOW WHEN the Lord knew (learned, became aware) that the Pharisees had been told that Jesus was winning and baptizing more disciples than John--

John 4:2 Though Jesus Himself did not baptize, but His disciples--

John 4:3 He left Judea and returned to Galilee.

Msg>John 4:1 Jesus realized that the Pharisees were keeping count of the baptisms that he and John performed

John 4:2 (although his disciples, not Jesus, did the actual baptizing). They had posted the score that Jesus was ahead, turning him and John into rivals in the eyes of the people.

Please Pray first for the holy spirit to guide you and then Read and study the scriptures I have given,
The essence of biblical equality can be summed up in Paul's letter to the Galatians: There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. (Galatians 3:28) Romans 3:22
Even though the world does not treat humans as equals, as members of the body of Christ, all are equal spiritually in the eyes of Jesus. Matthew 23:12, Matthew 18:4, 1 Peter 5:6, Mark 9:35

Let us start by checking out the entire verse in context:

Jesus answered and said to him, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." Nicodemus said to Him, "How can a man be born when he is old? He cannot enter a second time into his mother's womb and be born, can he?" Jesus answered, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not be amazed that I said to you, "You must be born again.' (John 3:3-7)

There are two conditions to enter the kingdom of God. Which comes first? "Born of water," according to the verse.Jesus clarifies what He means in the next verse, "That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit." Being born of water is referring to being born physically (the water referring to the amniotic fluid that breaks as one is born). This is why He said "You must be born again." The first birth is the birth from water, or the flesh. The second is to be born of the Spirit, which is of God. I think it is pretty clear that the verse does not refer to baptism,At this point, the "entering" is for anyone who is born again (born of the Spirit).

The gospels record that the women were the first to hear the news of Jesus' resurrection from the angels and the first to see Him (since the men had gone into hiding or back to their original jobs after Jesus was crucified). Matthew 28:5-6, Mark 16:5-6, Luke 24:5-6, John 20:18, Mark 16:9
In contrast to the gentleness and kindness with which Jesus treated women, He reserved His more scathing comments for the arrogant male religious leaders of His time. These He labeled as "serpents," "brood of vipers," and "whitewashed tombs." Matthew 23:33, Matthew 12:34, Matthew 12:34, Matthew 23:27

The Christian Church is female!
This is going to come to a shock to most non-Christians (and maybe even some Christians), but God's people are referred to as female, not male. In the Old Testament, God's people are the "daughters of Zion." Isaiah 62:11, Zechariah 2:10, Zechariah 9:9The Church or body of Christ (including us men) is referred to as the "bride" of Christ Revelation 19:7, Revelation 19:9, Revelation 22:17 and God is said to be our "husband." Isaiah 54:5 Whenever referred to by sex, the Church is described as "she" or "her." Ephesians 5:25, Ephesians 5:27

Created in the image of God!
Most people know that the Bible says God created man in His own image. However, many do not know that "man" includes both males and females. Both males and females are created in the image of God:
And God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him, male and female He created them. (Genesis 1:27)
This verse implies that the "image of God" encompasses traits found in both males and females and that the physical sexual differences between the sexes are not important characteristics in terms of how mankind was created in God's image.

The women described in the Bible are not always homemakers and mothers.However, Deborah was both a judge and leader of Israel. Judges 4:4 Other women were involved in ridding Israel of her enemies. Judges 4:21, Judges 9:52-53 Quite a number of women are described as being prophetesses. Exodus 15:20, 2 Kings 22:14, Luke 2:36, Acts 21:8-9 Other women in the Bible were involved in teaching the Word of God or serving as deaconesses in the early Christian church. Acts 18:26, Romans 16:1, Romans 16:6, Romans 16:12 Although all of Jesus' twelve disciples were men (there is good reason for this), there were a number of women who were loyal followers and who ministered to Him and His disciples. Matthew 27:55-56

Ask yourself this question, How many people did Jesus baptize?? The answer is none, Jesus told a person that their sins were forgiven,Because Your faith has made you whole. He, Jesus also said he is the same yesterday, today and forever. Put your trust in Jesus, not a plan,form or program.
Jesus is the way the truth and the light, Always has been and always will be. Also do you think if a person that doesn't know Jesus and was suddenly hurt at a point of death and cried out to Jesus would be ignored?? Of course not. Jesus is always ready to seek and save. Babtisam is important,But not more important than a personal relationship with Jesus.
