THE BATTLE OF QUOTES!  by steve finnell

When it comes to quoting the Bible versus quoting men who do you trust?

Max Lucado Quote:

 3) “What of the ones who die before they have a chance? What if I entrust my soul to Christ and before I can tell anyone or arrange to be baptized, a swarm of killer bees attacks me and I die?”
The answer to this question is found in the character of God. Would a God of love reject an honest heart? No way. Would a God of mercy and kindness condemn any seeking soul? Absolutely not. Having called you and died for you would he cast you away because of a curious sequence of events? Inconceivable. Is it possible for an unbaptized believer to be saved? Yes, definitely. Should every believer be baptized? Yes, definitely.

Jesus Quote:

Mark 16:16 He who believes and has been baptized shall be saved...(NASB)

Bible Quote:

Proverbs 14:12 There is a way which seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.(NASB)

Ananias Quote: Acts 22:12-16.....16 Now why do you delay? Get up and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on His name.! (NASB)

NOTE: Saul believed three days prior to his baptism. Why was he still in his sins? Because Jesus said "He who believes and has been baptized shall be saved." 

The opinions of men are opinions, but they do not void the word of God.
