MAN-MADE CREEDS, CATECHISMS, AND OTHER EXTRA-BIBLICAL WRITINGS VERSUS THE BIBLE
The Bible. John 4:24 "God is a Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth."(John 4:24 NKJV)
2. Man-made writing. Unbelieving infants are saved by water baptism.
The Bible. Acts 16:31-34 So they said, "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.".....33....And immediately he and all his family were baptized. 34.........having believed in God with all his household. (NKJV)
Note: All of the Jailer's household who were saved believed and were baptized in water. Infants cannot believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. All that were saved believed. Infants are not subjects for baptism. Infants have no sin that needs to be forgiven.
3. Man-made writing. Infants are guilty of inherited sin.
The Bible. Ezekiel 18:20 "The soul who sins shall die. The son shall not bear the guilt of the father...(NKJV)
4. Man-made writing. All men are guilty of Adam's so-called original sin, and are therefore spiritually dead.
The Bible. 1 John 3:4 Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness.(NKJV) Matthew 7:21-23......"And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!, (NKJV)
Note: Men who are spiritually dead are in that state because they are unrepentant sinners, not because of Adam's so-called original sin. Men need to commit sin to be guilty of sin.
5. Man-made writing. Water baptism is not essential to have sins forgiven.
The Bible. Acts 2:38.....let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins...(NKJV) Acts 22:16...Arise and be baptized , and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord.' (NKJV) Mark 16:16...and is baptized will be saved...
IS WHAT YOU BELIEVE BECAUSE OF MAN-MADE DOCTRINE OR BIBLICAL TRUTH?
