A Typical Response To The Bible Crossfire Radio Program

Following is what Anton Bergen from Winnipeg, Manitoba (Canada) wrote on Facebook on Jan 2, 2017 regarding one of my Bible Crossfire radio programs …

So my friend Patrick Donahue actually believes that unless you’re baptized, you can’t be saved, you can’t get to heaven. What say you, my Facebook friends, do you agree with Patrick? I do not, and I’m willing to stand alone on this. … Why do I keep pointing this out? Patrick has a megaphone, a half hour program on satellite radio with possibly millions of people tuned in on Sunday nights. I find that he’s not careful enough in his teachings. Most of the calls he gets is from people who disagree with him and argue his points. …

Notwithstanding Anton’s stance, what do the following passages clearly teach on whether or not a sinner has to be baptized to be saved?:

· Mark 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be [condemned].

· John 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

· Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

· Acts 22:16 And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord.

· I Pet 3:21 The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:
