They never mention repentance or Baptism to the People, didn't mention receiving the Holy Ghost, yet say they are saved.
Dear reader, let us now turn to the word of God, and see what the word of God has to say about it. Romans 3:4 says: "Let God be true and every man a liar." Now we will hear outlined the plan of salvation according to the word of God.
John said: "He indeed baptized with water unto repentance but Jesus Christ would baptize with the Holy Ghost and with fire." John didn't tell them to raise their hands right where they were and accept Christ. Jesus Christ, who is our example came to John and was baptized, and He received the Holy Ghost. ( Matthew 3:16)
Jesus Christ said to Nicodemus, except a man be born again of water and spirit, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God. ( St. John 3:5)
Jesus Christ said in Mark 16:16 he that believeth and is baptized shall be saved, and these signs shall follow them that believe...In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues. I heard an awful statement made that there was no such thing in the Bible as speaking in tongues. But Isaiah prophesied seven hundred and twelve years before Jesus Christ came: "For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to his people." (Isaiah 28:11) Jesus Christ spoke in tongues, when he raised Jairus' daughter. He took the damsel by the hand and said unto her "Talitha cumi." (Mark 5:41)
On the day of Pentecost when the foundation of the Church was laid with and by them that walked and talked with Jesus Christ, and watched Him go up into the heavens, they also spoke in tongues as the spirit gave them utterance. (Read Acts 2:1-13)
When the multitude heard the gospel preached by Peter
on the day of Pentecost, they were pricked in their hearts. They said unto Peter and
the rest of the Apostles, "What shall we do?" Peter didn't say
to them raise your
hands and accept Christ as your personal Saviour, as it is told to the people today.
Neither did he say join the church, but he said unto them, "Repent and be
baptized everyone of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins,
and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost." (Acts 2:38)
And three thousand obeyed (Acts 2:41)
