MAN-MADE CREEDS by steve finnellWhy do men reject the words of Jesus, but accept man-made creeds?
Many reject what Jesus said in Mark 16:16 He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned. (NKJV)
MAN-MADE CREED: Those who not believe that Jesus is the only way of salvation can still be saved; because there many other ways to be saved. In other words, saved without believing that Jesus is the Son of God.
MAN-MADE CREED: Non-believing infants can be saved by having their future sins and the non-exist guilt of Adam's inherited sin wash away by baptism alone. In other words, infants can be saved and added the the body of Christ without confessing Jesus as Lord and Savior
MAN-MADE CREED: Men are saved by faith only. In other words, water baptism is not essential for salvation.
Men can believe in the creed of Jesus or man-made creeds, however, both cannot be true.
