1 BAPTISM: Essential for Salvation? Review Jarrod Jacobs - Roger Holland Debate (Millwood, KY Feb , 2005) [By Ron Halbrook] [Charts by Jarrod Jacobs]

2 Proposition For Debate RESOLVED: “The Scriptures teach that baptism, to the penitent believer, is for (in order to obtain) the remission of sins.” Affirm: Jarrod Jacobs Deny: Roger Holland

3 Proposition For Debate RESOLVED: “The Scriptures teach that one is saved before and without water baptism.” Affirm: Roger Holland Deny: Jarrod Jacobs

4 Definition Of Terms The Scriptures - The 66 Books Of The Bible, Both Old and New Testaments. Teach - To impart knowledge, to instruct Baptism - Immersion in water. Penitent Believer - One who believes that Jesus Christ is the Son of God (Jn. 8:24), and has repented of past sins (Acts 17:30). For - In order to obtain. Remission of sins - The forgiveness of past (alien) sins.

5 What Is NOT In Dispute? Who Saves Us God Saves Us! (Acts 28:28) Whether Or Not We Are Saved By Faith Yes, Faith Saves Us! (Luke 8:12) Whether Or Not We Are Saved By Christ’s Blood It Saves! (Matthew 26:28) Whether Or Not We Are Saved By God’s Grace We Are! (Ephesians 2:8)

6 What Is NOT In Dispute? Whether Or Not We Are Saved By Confessing Christ We Must! (Romans 10:9-10) Whether Or Not Water Saves Us It Doesn’t! Whether Or Not We Are Saved By Meritorious Works We Are Not! (Titus 3:5)

7 What IS In Dispute?  Is baptism necessary for salvation, or not?  Do we reach the blood of Christ “before and without” baptism?  Can we enjoy pardon and the blessings “in Christ” “before and without” baptism? The Bible says baptism is necessary for salvation. Mr. Holland says “No, it is not!”

8 What IS In Dispute? The Bible: “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved…” (Mk. 16:16) Mr. Holland: “He that believeth and is NOT baptized shall be saved….” The Bible: “Repent and be baptized … for the remission of sins” (Acts 2:38) Mr. Holland: “Repent, but baptism is NOT for the remission of sins …”

9 What IS In Dispute? The Bible: “Arise and be baptized and wash away thy sins…” (Acts 22:16) Mr. Holland: “Arise and do NOT be baptized and wash away thy sins …” The Bible: “Baptism doth also now save us…” (I Pet. 3:21) Mr. Holland: “Baptism doth also NOT save us….”

10 Faith/Pisteuo (Strong’s #4100) “used especially of the faith by which a man embraces Jesus, i.e., a conviction, full of joyful trust, that Jesus is the Messiah – the divinely appointed author of eternal salvation in the kingdom of God, conjoined with obedience to Christ. (Mk. 16:16; Jn. 1:12, 3:16, 18, 36, 6:29, 35; 11:25; 14:1; Acts 10:43 ; Rom. 1:16, 10:10, 14; I Jn. 5:1, 10; etc., etc.)” Thayer’s Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament, p. 511

11 “And” “He that believeth AND is baptized shall be saved …” (Mk. 16:16). “Repent AND be baptized … for the remission of sins” (Acts 2:38) “Arise AND be baptized AND wash away thy sins …” (Acts 22:16) “And” (kai in Greek) is a conjunction which joins two words, clauses, or sentences together which are to be taken jointly.

12 “And” [“And” (kai in Greek) is a conjunction which joins two words, clauses, or sentences together which are to be taken jointly.] A Parallel to Mark 16:16: “He that getteth on the plane AND is seated shall arrive at his destination.” Getting on a plane AND being seated are necessary for arriving at the destination!

13 Parallels To Mark 16:16 “He that believeth and it baptized shall be saved. He that believeth not shall be damned.” Parallels: “He that eateth his food and digesteth shall live. He who does not eat shall die.” “He that goes to college and is educated shall graduate. He that does not go to college will not graduate.”

14 “And” [“And” (kai in Greek) is a conjunction which joins two words, clauses, or sentences together which are to be taken jointly.] A Parallel to Acts 2:38: “Stand up AND let everyone of you leave this building in order to escape the fire.” Standing up AND leaving are necessary for escaping the fire!

15 Baptism BEFORE Salvation Five passages tell us baptism comes BEFORE salvation. Mark 16:16 Acts 2:38 Romans 6:4 Acts 22:16 I Peter 3:21 Name ONE Scripture which places salvation BEFORE baptism!!

16 The Conversion Of Cornelius Study Acts 10 with Acts 11…. 11:4 – “by order” 11:14; 10:6 – “words … shall be saved” 11:15 – “as I BEGAN to speak” (Rom. 10:17) If Cornelius was saved then, he was saved before FAITH!! Peter then COMMANDED them to be baptized (10:48).  Acts 11:18

17 The Conversion Of Cornelius “To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins” (Acts 10:43). “Through his name” (by His authority) Under what conditions might one “through his name” receive “remission of sins”? In baptism! (Acts 2:38)

18 Faith/Pisteuo (Strong’s #4100) “used especially of the faith by which a man embraces Jesus, i.e., a conviction, full of joyful trust, that Jesus is the Messiah – the divinely appointed author of eternal salvation in the kingdom of God, conjoined with obedience to Christ. (Mk. 16:16; Jn. 1:12, 3:16, 18, 36, 6:29, 35; 11:25; 14:1; Acts 10:43 ; Rom. 1:16, 10:10, 14; I Jn. 5:1, 10; etc., etc.)” Thayer’s Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament, p. 511

19 Things Conjoined In Titus 3 Titus 3:4-8 Love (v. 4) Baptism (v. 5) Christ’s Blood (v. 6) Grace (v. 7) Obedient Faith (v. 8 – “pisteuo”) Here are “love,” “grace,” “baptism,” “Christ’s blood,” and “faith” in the SAME passage! “Dr.” Holland separates love & baptism!

20 Things Conjoined In Titus 3 Titus 3:4-8 Love (v. 4) Baptism (v. 5) Christ’s Blood (v. 6) Grace (v. 7) Obedient Faith (v. 8 – “pisteuo”) Here are “love,” “grace,” “baptism,” “Christ’s blood,” and “faith” in the SAME passage! “Dr.” Holland separates Christ’s blood & baptism!

21 Things Conjoined In Titus 3 Titus 3:4-8 Love (v. 4) Baptism (v. 5) Christ’s Blood (v. 6) Grace (v. 7) Obedient Faith (v. 8 – “pisteuo”) Here are “love,” “grace,” “baptism,” “Christ’s blood,” and “faith” in the SAME passage! “Dr.” Holland separates grace & baptism!

22 Things Conjoined In Titus 3 Titus 3:4-8 Love (v. 4) Baptism (v. 5) Christ’s Blood (v. 6) Grace (v. 7) Obedient Faith (v. 8 – “pisteuo”) Here are “love,” “grace,” “baptism,” “Christ’s blood,” and “faith” in the SAME passage! “Dr.” Holland separates faith & baptism!

23 Baptism: Not A Work Of Merit NOT: Work Of Merit “Not by works of righteousness which we have done…” BUT: Baptism “… but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost.” Titus 3:5

24 The Blood Of Christ & Baptism Blood Of Christ: (Basis Of Salvation) 1) Remits Sin (Matt. 26:28) 2) Justifies (Rom. 5:9) 3) Washes Sins (Rev. 1:5). Baptism: (How Receive Salv.) 1) Remits Sin (Acts 2:38) 2) Justifies (I Cor.6:11; Acts18:8) 3) Washes Sins (Acts 22:16). The Blood Of Christ Is The “Where” Of Salvation; Baptism Is The “When”!!

25 Pfc. David Kurns is baptized by Task Force Chaplain Capt. Ron Cooper, left, and 1st Lt. Brian Case, right, in the desert north of Kuwait City, Wednesday, March 12. Eight members of the 3rd Infantry Division were baptized in the desert on Wednesday. (2003)

26 Faith/Pisteuo (Strong’s #4100) “used especially of the faith by which a man embraces Jesus, i.e., a conviction, full of joyful trust, that Jesus is the Messiah – the divinely appointed author of eternal salvation in the kingdom of God, conjoined with obedience to Christ. (Mk. 16:16; Jn. 1:12, 3:16, 18, 36, 6:29, 35; 11:25; 14:1; Acts 10:43 ; Rom. 1:16, 10:10, 14; I Jn. 5:1, 10; etc., etc.)” Thayer’s Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament, p. 511
