Question
I found this wonderful site in exposing how Baptist reject the Baptism at Acts 2:38. Can you share your insight with the Board for us true Christians!  http://www.netbiblestudy.net/baptist/

Agape!

Answer
That Website exposes the hypocrisy of the "Baptist Faith".  Thank you for referring it to the Forum.  

"Most Baptists teach that all you must do in order to be saved and have your sins forgiven is to "accept Jesus as your personal Saviour".  They say that baptism is not essential to salvation and not essential for the forgiveness of sins.  They claim that they are saved and their sins are forgiven before and without baptism.  But where in the Bible is any of this found?  It is not there."

"Baptists reject what Jesus says one must do to be saved.  Those, who believe and obey the Baptist doctrine of "faith only", have blatantly declined the Saviour's offer of pardon.  Jesus says in John 12:48, "He who rejects Me, and does not receive My words, has that which judges him; the word that I have spoken will judge him in the last day."

"In Acts 2:37-38 the question was asked, "'Men and brethern, what shall we do?'  Then Peter said to them, 'Repent and and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins'".

"And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, 'Save yourselves from this perverse generation'.  Then they who gladly received his word were baptized; and the same day there were added to them about three thousand souls" (Acts 2:40-41).  

"In Acts 9:1-18, 22:6-16 when Ananias came to Saul of Tarsus, who later became the apostle Paul, he did not tell him that he was already "saved by grace when he trusted in Jesus".  Ananias did not tell Saul that his prayers had already saved him, even though Saul had been praying for the past three days.  Ananias did not tell Saul to recite the "sinner's prayer" to be saved.  Ananias told Saul, "And now why are you waiting?  Arise and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord" (Acts 22:16). "

"The Baptists say one is saved by "faith only".  But what does the Bible say about "faith only"?  James 2:19-20 says, "You believe that there is one God.  You do well.  Even the devils also believe and tremble.  But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead".

"To enter the Baptist Church or any other denomination one has to reject God's plan of salvation as given in the Bible.  James 2:24, 26 continues to say, "You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only…For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also."

"Baptists contend that people can be saved and go to Heaven without baptism, but they also contend that people cannot enter their Baptist Church without baptism."  Quite the Paradox, heh?

"Baptists are going to be "among those who perish because they did not receive a love of the truth, that they might be saved.  And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they may all be condemned who did not believe the truth" (2 Thessalonians 2:10-12)."

"Many Baptists say that after one is saved it is impossible for one to be eternally lost.  This is the false doctrine of "once saved, always saved".  Once Saved, Always Saved, Always False!

"Even though Baptists call Jesus, "Lord, Lord", but this will not get them into Heaven.  To go to Heaven we must do the will of the "Father in heaven".  The will of the Father in Heaven is found in our Bibles and not in the Baptist Church Manual.  A horrible surprise will greet Baptists on Judgment Day.  Baptists who thought they were saved will be pleading desperately with Jesus and saying, "Lord, Lord have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name and done many wonders in Your name?" (Matthew 7:22)."

"Baptist doctrine can be traced to an ignorance of God’s word and ignoring what it says.  How could anyone conclude that scripture authorizes the abandonment of God's plan as found in the Bible? Baptist doctrine has come from men and is vain and useless.  Any doctrine that teaches anything more than, less than, or anything different from what God’s word teaches in the Bible is false doctrine."

"The Baptist Church laughs at God’s word when God says repentance and baptism are both required for the remission of one’s sins so one can be saved and go to Heaven.  This is sad and will cause many good people to be eternally lost in Hell because they believed a lie of Satan." See that?? Many good people to be eternally lost in Hell So Holland was lying, Not only bad people go to Hell but Good People too!! lol.... What a Joke!

"If people really want to go to Heaven, they must come out of their Baptist Churches and be baptized for the remission of their sins (Acts 2:38) so they can be saved (Mark 16:16). Satan does not want anyone to be saved.  The Bible speaks of Satan as the one "who deceives the whole world" (Revelation 12:9).  Satan rejoices at all of the religious confusion and division that is going on in the world today."

"In this Bible study on "Baptist Church Doctrines And Beliefs", I have tried to point you to what the Bible says about false counterfeit Baptist doctrine which is going to cause many, many people to be eternally lost in Hell." http://www.netbiblestudy.net/baptist/

I'll comment on exerts for the Forum later on.  Too many falsehoods to expose all at once.
Take Care,

Brother Rando

Expertise

Brother Rando is a student of Prophecy and one of Jehovah's Witnesses in good standing with the Faithful and Discreet slave. His interests are directed towards how the time of the end would come about. The earth’s population today is going through a physical, spiritual and emotional tribulation that has been prophesied concerning a time of distress as it enters into a cleansing period of removing wickedness by means of God’s Kingdom. (Daniel 12:1) Brother Rando’s discussions are of keen interest to many who await for God's Kingdom. He asserts that his discussions are just that, and not Prophecies, nor does he make the claim to be inspired. His authority is the Bible. He proclaims the year 2034 to be of very high interest to all. Like a GPS, that gives Insight to location, 2034 allows us to gauge where we are in the stream of time according to God’s Will. According to Brother Rando, the Bible carries two thoughts in it’s passages, one is fleshy and the other is spiritual. Jesus Christ warned Peter of thinking fleshy and that this type of thinking is not from God. (Matthew 16:23) In order to measure time, a method of measurement is needed. Measuring time by “the day” would mean a 24 hour period. However, measuring “the day” spiritually would mean a period of time yet to be revealed using other scripture to interpret the method needed. By looking into the Bible, we can actually determine what God meant by “the day” when looking into his Word on how his Will would come about. As we read (Genesis 2:16-17) the punishment for disobedience was death “in the day”. As time went on, the scriptures do begin to reveal the time frame of “the day”. According to Genesis 5:5, Adam lived 930 years and then he died. Satan who thinks like a man, got it wrong! (Genesis 3:4-5) Why Study the Bible

Experience

In Brother Rando’s research of the Bible, he found scripture does interpret other scripture. The answer to how long a day was, according to God’s Will was found in Psalms 90:4 and 2 Peter 3:8. This is vital to gaining understanding in how we are to measure time in God’s view. Spiritually and not fleshy or physical. A day in heavens time is a thousand years to us. It’s by this method we can measure time and where we are in the stream of time of the end. In answer Jesus said to them: “Break down this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” (John 2:19) Was Jesus indicating that he was the Temple of God, God’s Kingdom? And that the temple would in fact be destroyed or broken down? According to God’s Word, the following scripture is the basis for Salvation. “For if you publicly declare that ‘word in your own mouth,’ that Jesus is Lord, and exercise faith in your heart that God raised him up from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9) In order for John 2:19 and Romans 10:9 to come in line, did Jesus utter a prophecy about God's Kingdom since he stated, “I will raise it up”? IF the basis for salvation is that Jesus is Lord and that God raised him up. We can conclude that Jesus did not raise himself up, but it was God that raised him from the dead since he was dead and conscious of nothing at all. (Ecc 9:5) Jesus prophesied that HE would raise God's Kingdom. (Rev 5:10) Jesus was speaking prophetically of raising the temple within the third day of a thousand years. Jesus warned Peter not to think the thoughts of man. (Matthew 16:23) Based on 2 Peter 3:8 we are able to determine the time frame to when God’s Kingdom would be raised up by Jesus Christ. Jesus was put to death on Nisan 14, 33CE. The two days would actually represent two thousand years and we come up with the year 2033. Jesus stated,“in three days I will raise it up.” So the third day is upon us in 2034.

Organizations
“I fully support, acknowledge and cooperate with *The Faithful Steward and Its' Governing Body* of Jehovah’s Witnesses.” I am property of the "Faithful and Discreet Slave" that Jesus, my brother, is appointing over his belongings. This Slave is the Governing Body of Jehovah's Earthly Organization known Worldwide as "Jehovah's Witnesses". When the Mountain-like organizations act against God's chosen people after Babylon has been destroyed, Jehovah will slaughter those who are touching the pupils of his eyes. Even though Babylon the Great is spoken as a woman and she has fallen in (Rev. 14:8), the sacred secret is that she is not a woman at all, but the World of False Religion that will be utterly destroyed by the personal hand of Jesus Christ as (King Abaddon) in the coming Great Tribulation never to be found again! (Matthew 24:14)

Publications
Secular Historians point to the Temple in Jerusalem being destroyed in 70 AD by the Romans. But was Jesus Christ speaking in a physical sense since that Temple is non-existent today? Jehovah Witnesses assert that Jesus under inspiration of Holy Spirit was actually prophesying about his spiritual body as the only means to approach his Heavenly Father. (John 14:6) Not the Temple made by hands or his fleshy body as Christendom claims, but his spiritual body, known as the Body of Christ. (1 Cor 12:27) This would actually be the Collective Representative of God’s Kingdom in how we can approach the One True God JEHOVAH. Brother Rando is not the first to come up with this time frame. In the first part of 1914, the Bible Students known as International Bible Students Association discussed the “time of trouble” on the printed page called The Bible Students Monthly. Early in 1914, an issue of The Bible Students Monthly was issued with the large bold heading “END OF WORLD IN 1914? Some have quoted the large headline of this tract as proof that Russell was expecting the “end of the world” in 1914. However, such neglect the subheading under the larger headline, which states: “NOT THE VIEW OF PASTOR RUSSELL NOR OF I.B.S.A.” International Bible Students Association: "Nevertheless, when viewed from God’s standpoint, we are still “shortly after” 1914. Although Russell himself did not think the time of trouble would be this long, he did allow that it could be. It is possible that the time allotted for this period is 120 years (1914+120=2034), but that these days will be “cut short” some time before they are allowed to reach their end. We do not put this forth as a “prophecy”, nor would we feel anything was wrong if 2034 came and went and nothing had happened as far the full binding of Satan and the destruction of his empire is concerned. All things are in God’s hands."

Education/Credentials
According to the discussion, 1914 represents the year that the earth would enter into a time of distress and that time limit could very well be 120 years. Which again, brings up the year 2034. The year 1914 is derived by a prophecy of the end of the Gentile times. Brother Rando insists that we should not live by a date, but to use this time to get right with God. Jesus continually pointed that the people who were on the earth when he would raise God’s Temple would be like those people in Noah’s time, taking no note. Where do the 120 years come from? If we read Genesis 6:3, most people think of this scripture in the fleshy sense of man’s lifespan. But could there be a spiritual meaning, giving those with Insight a divine warning? The Bible does say, “make secret the words and seal up the book, until the time of [the] end.” (Daniel 12:4) Could it be, this world has entered into it’s Last Days in 1914? (1 Timothy 3:1-5) Yet there is another scripture that helps us measure the time. In Ecclesiastes 6:6 it reads, “Even supposing that he has lived a thousand years twice over and yet he has not seen what is good, is it not to just one place that everyone is going?” The chapter talks about vanity and that if a person actually lived two thousand years without God’s Kingdom we are all heading to the same place. Since death was the punishment, we would need God’s Kingdom to conquer death, the place we all are heading. A thousand years twice over is two thousand years. Simple math again brings us to the time of 2034, when the second thousand years has been brought to it’s finish. Could Christ Millennial reign be from 2034 to 3034? We don’t know. Jesus stated, he would raise God’s Temple in the third day, so we can expect God's Kingdom to be fully operating sometime between the years 2034 and 3034. However, Jesus Christ was risen first thing on the very morning in the third day. Most Bible readers are in agreement that Christ does rule for a thousand years.

Awards and Honors
Armageddon is the actual cleansing of the earth from all wickedness. If in the literal sense, it would consist of angels coming down from heaven to bring death to all those rejecting the Kingdom of God. But if it is spiritual, Armageddon could very will take place without the knowledge that it is actually occurring. If this is the case, then Armageddon would commence without the knowledge that the wicked are simply dying off. There seems to be evidence in scripture to how God destroyed the forefather’s in the wilderness. They died off in the wilderness at the hand of the destroyer without knowing of such, as Paul eloquently explains in 1 Corinthians 10:1-10. If.....
