Re: The gospel
Great conversations guys
Here is another for water baptism being necessary for salvation. Wouldn’t the gentiles in these scriptures be saved once they had received the gift of the Holy Spirit, which is before they were baptized with water?
Act 10:44 As Peter was yet speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell on all those hearing the Word.
Act 10:45 And the faithful of the circumcision were amazed, as many as came with Peter, because the gift of the Holy Spirit was poured out on the nations also.
Act 10:46 For they heard them speaking in languages and magnifying God. Then Peter answered,
Act 10:47 Can anyone forbid the water that these not be baptized, who the Holy Spirit received, even as we also?
Act 10:48 And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then they asked him to remain some days.
