The Bible Plan of Salvation
Sunday, 30 November 2008 06:00 Unknown Author
Plan A: Announced by the apostles, inspired by the Holy Spirit, to new believers who asked what they must do to be saved from the eternal consequence of their sins: "Repent, and let each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit" (Acts 2:38).
Plan B: Not spoken of by the apostles, or inspired by the Holy Spirit—rather,found on the back page of a Baptist tract, new believers are urged to pray this prayer to be saved from the eternal consequence of their sins. The Sinner's Prayer: "O' Lord, I accept that I am a sinner and that Jesus died for my sins. I now accept Him into my heart as Lord and Savior asking for your mercy and forgiveness in His name. Amen."
Choice: Which plan would you choose (or have you chosen) to be saved from the eternal consequence of your sins (Romans 6:23)? Only one can be correct! If you can find TheSinner’s Prayer in Scripture, then follow it (and write the editor of this paper to let him know where it can be found—so that he can follow it)! If it cannot be found, then it is a doctrine of man (cf. Matthew 15:9) and not The BIBLE Plan of Salvation! Do not be deceived! “Prove all things, hold fast to that which is good” (1 Thessalonians 5:21).
