What is your interpretation of Scriptures concerning your salvation? The question is not what is your preacher, priest, pastor, your Bible college professor, your Sunday school teacher, your relatives; interpretations of Scripture. What do you think?

Acts 3:19 Repent, then turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, ( NIV 1973)

1. Does that mean adults need to repent of the guilt, they inherited from Adam so their sins may be forgiven?

2. Does that teach that unbelieving infants need to repent of their sins and turn to God?

3. Does it mean that once you become a Christian you can live a sinful lifestyle and still be saved?

4. Does it mean that God will force the elect to repent and turn to Him so their sins may be forgiven?

Mark 16:16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. (NIV 1973)

1. Does it mean those who, believe only, will be saved?

2. Does it signify that those who believe are saved and should be baptized as a testimony of their faith?

3. Does it mean that non-believers will also be saved, because there are many roads to heaven?

4. Does it mean that God is responsible for making men believe and be baptized, because grace alone saves?

Acts 2:38 Peter replied: "Repent and be baptized, every one you in the name of Jesus Christ so that your sins may be forgiven. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. (NIV 1973)

1. Does is mean, repent only, so your sins may be forgiven?

2. Does it mean be baptized because your sins have already been forgiven.

3. Does it mean you received the gift of the Holy Spirit before you repented and were baptized in water?

4. Does it mean that Jesus did not command His disciples to baptize in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit?

5. Does it mean that "and" is not a conjunction in this verse of Scripture?

6. Does it mean, that immersion in water is not essential for salvation?
