New Testament Salvation
The subject of salvation should be of interest to everyone, especially to professing Christians and to those who love the Lord.

There is much in the Word of God that many people do not know and much that they do not believe. The Spirit of God comes to lead us into all truth, but it is very hard for people to receive new truth, especially those who have already had a Christian experience. Many people are very afraid of anything that is not taught in their particular denomination and are apt to classify it as heresy, false teaching, or fanaticism without stopping to see whether or not it is really found in the Word of God. Saul of Tarsus truly believed that he was serving God when he persecuted and imprisoned the Christians of his day, but after Jesus appeared and spoke to him, he was dramatically transformed. He later declared, "After the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers" (Acts 24:14).

The Apostolic Teaching

Have you ever stopped to compare the religion of today with that of the apostles? They baptized (immersed) all their converts in Jesus' name (not in the titles Father,Son, and Holy Ghost). They were baptized with the Holy Ghost and spoke in other tongues. They believed and practiced divine healing. Any one of these things is called fanaticism by many modern churches. Who is wrong -- the Bible or modern churches? Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8). There is one Lord, one faith, and one baptism (Ephesians 4:5).

Many people have inherited religious beliefs from their mothers and fathers and have never stopped to compare those beliefs with our only guidebook -- the Bible. There are also "blind leaders of the blind" (Matthew 15:14), who have never been born again themselves
