Does Water Baptism Save? (1 Peter 3) Q&A – John MacArthur

Does baptism by water conserve? “Certain doctrinal practices misunderstand Peter’s declaration baptism currently conserves you to describe spiritual redemption by water baptism (i.e., baptismal regrowth). But baptism (from baptizo) merely implies “to submerse,” as well as not simply in water.”. 1 Peter 3: 21 Baptism, which represents this, currently conserves you, NOT as an elimination of dust from the body BUT as an attract God for a great principles, with the rebirth of JesusChrist, Mark 4:1 John did baptize in the wild, as well as teach the baptism of attrition for the remission of wrongs.

1 peter 3, 21-22. NIV.
"There is also an antitype which now saves us—baptism (not the removal of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God), through the resurrection of Jesus Christ."

now I see how John MacArthur is a false prophet, that scripture doesn't say that submersion doesn't save, MacArthur you don't understand the scriptures.

“because they formerly did not obey, when God’s patience waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight persons, were brought safely through water. Baptism, which corresponds to this, now saves you, not as a removal of dirt from the body but as an appeal to God for a good conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,”
‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭3:20-21‬ ‭

So the Bible doesn't mean what it clearly says. Ok.

Peter is explaining how "baptism… now saves you," not how 'baptism plays no role in salvation." The Apostle goes on to explain that baptism is the appeal to God for a good conscience – it's the way a person seeks to become right with God, an appeal to God for salvation. It couldn't be any simpler! Virtually all Christians believed this for over 1500 years.

After living "on the inside" of the Church of Christ for a temporary period , i can sum up their heresy by quoting from THEIR hymnbook . Their hymnbooks use many of the old standards (which were written by Baptists ,Methodists, a.k.a. " Denominational world " ) . They sing songs written by people that they won't fellowship with ! ( those ol heretical denominationals ) . Anyway , the simplest way i could describe the beliefs of the Church of Christ sect is thru a Fanny Crosby hymn that they sing "To God Be The Glory " . The church of Christ leaders CHANGED THE WORDS …on the second verse ! The second verse reads "… the vilest offender who truly believes, that moment from Jesus a pardon receives " . The church of Christ CHANGED it to say , "the vilest offender who truly obeys , that moment may enter the Heavenly way " . …..

We only need look at the sinner @ the cross with Christ. He Repents! And he Trusts in Christ alone. Jesus didnt say to him, your sins are forgiven get of your cross and be baptised. Jesus didnt say, Someone sprinkle water on him.

Beware of cultic sects who promote and defend "baptism saves" doctrine as this is their only thing that blends with their proselytizing mission and silent teaching " Membership in their one & only true church means salvation " .

A lie from the devil. Acts 2 38 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. Remission means forgiveness! Without it theres no forgiveness! Mark 16 16 He who belie.ves and is baptized shall be saved! John 3 5 A man must be born of the WATER and of the Spirit or he cannot enter into the kingdom of God! Jesus said this! Acts 8 36 ….they came down to a certain WATER and the Eunich said See here is WATER what doth hinder me to be baptized? Acts 8 38…. And they went down both into the WATER both Phillip and the Eunich and he baptized him. Read also Acts 10 48. Acts 22 16. Acts 2 41. Colossians 2 12. 1 Corinthians 6 11. Beware of false prophets!! Read the Word for yourself!! The enemy of this world uses many to deceive!!

Jesus said I come in my fathers name. He also says the comforter who I will send in my name. The name is Jesus. I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.
John:5:43. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

The Word of God stands alone. It even warns Gods children about false prophets like you. Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
Romans:16:17. Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
1 John:4:1. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

Disgusting Satanic LIAR
They deny the word of God yet will always ask for the 10% tithe.

2Ti 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

2Ti 4:1 ¶ I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;
2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

Tit 1:7 For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre;
8 But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate;
9 Holding fast the FAITHFUL WORD as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.
10 For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision:
11 Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake.
12 One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies.
13 This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;
14 Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.
15 Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.
16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work REPROBATE

Hilarious!, he says the rest of the scriptures have to be evaluated regarding baptism, yet he say the trinity is true based on a few scriptures out of context! Lololololol.

So tell me, where in the Bible does it say that baptism is a public profession of your faith?

RomGabe - posted on January 6, 2018 6:42 pm

so John MacArthur and many neo-Protestants believe in TWO … check that out …. 2 BAPTISM: Water one and Spiritual one.  A clear VIOLATION of what Apostle Saint Paul wrote to the Ephesians (4:4-6) "There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call— one Lord, one faith, ONE BAPTISM, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all."  John is teaching a heresy here, something never taught by the Apostles or the 2000 year old Church of CHrist.

Lutherans believe that baptism does save us, as Peter stated, but this has to be correctly understood. Ultimately, only the active and passive obedience of Christ saves us. So why do Lutherans claim that baptism saves us? It does not save us in and of itself. It saves us because it gives us the gift of Christ, which we receive through faith. If we are given the gift of Christ through baptism, but reject the gift through unbelief, then the baptism we received does not save us.

No disrespect to any church ⛪ of Christ believers but they honestly do have some legitimate and valid questions that they can not seem to answer with any substance, one of which is: Is the gospel of Jesus Christ only good( only valid) if there is access to water ? What about repentant sinners who have put their full faith in Jesus Christ – can not get to water for some reason or another like someone who is bed ridden ; someone in prison ; someone in an arid location like a desert ; someone on an air plane ✈. Has salvation eluded them for a season or forever if they should die before reaching the waters for water baptism ? There are Scriptures that do provide hope that the answer is no, I believe. / If my answer to my question is yes then the nature of the Gospel of Jesus Christ NOT relational but based on proper function or pure legal action very similar to Old Testament demands of correct procedure.

Baptism does NOT save!

Jesus saves!!! Baptism is a sign that you have put your faith in Christ just as Circumsision was in the Old Testament

MacCarthur offers a fake version of 1 Peter 3:21 because Macarthur says "not the washing of your body in water, I am not talking about that" but that´s not what Peter wrote. After saying that baptism saves you Peter wrote this "not the removal of dirt from the body" and that´s another thing. Peter reminds us that no one goes to be baptized in order to get rid of the dirt of the body and baptism does not have that purpose "but the appeal for a clear conscience toward God"
One thing is clear, Peter filled with the Holy Spirit said in Acts 2:38 that baptism in the name of Jesus is for the forgiveness of sins and to receive the Holy Spirit this proves one clear: It is false that a christian who has already been saved by faith alone goes to be baptized only to confess one´s faith and to symbolize the salvation that he or she has already received by faith alone. That´s not what Jesus teaches in Mark 16:16, it is not what Peter says and regarding Paul we read "get up and be baptized and wash away your sins calling on the name of the Lord" (Acts 22:16), so Paul still was in his sins when he was baptized and that is why Baptism saves and baptism is for the forgiveness of sins.
Macarthur has a poor knowledge of church history. The father of protestantism, Luther taught that baptism saves and Luther appeared several decades before John Smith who founded the baptist denomination and Macarthur is a baptist. Even Calvin believed that baptism saves…but only if you are one of the elect.
Take a look at this book by the evangelical scholar Everet Fergusson: "Baptism in the Early Church: History, Theology, and Liturgy in the First Five Centuries" and you will confirm that from the first to the fifth century the Church taught everywhere that baptism saves. It was the catholic heretic Ulrich Zwingli the first guy who came with the idea that baptism does not save

Macarthurs calls a "simplistic" interpretation of the biblical phrase "baptism saves you" the one that follows what the phrase acturally says "baptism saves you" . He proposes a sophisticated version of this text one that says "baptism does not save you", but that anulls God´s Word. Yes John 1:1c says that the Word was God, but that is too simplistic, we must understand the phrase in this way "the Word was not God", so we avoid a simplistic interpretation of the Bible, I guess that Jesus really did not raise from the dead, because it is too simplistic to read the text and interpret it as it is.
Baptism does saves, because Jesus is the one who baptize in the Holy Spirit and He does so in baptism.

Augustine said it’s not the absence of baptism that dams it’s the rejection of it. Faith is what saves, baptism is one of the means by which God gives faith.

It has always been by faith and trusting in the promises of God that we are saved because of what God has done. By Noah’s faith in God’s promises he entered the boat that saved him. It is by our faith in God’s promises that we are baptized which saves us. (1 Peter 3:21)

"but the answer of a good conscience TOWARD GOD."  It seems to me,  that baptism is an answer toward God, and it's not an answer toward man.   So, is it right to conclude that baptism is not really about making a public declaration to the congregation (or any present) but rather that it is a declaration to God?  All insights appreciated, friends.

He is so confusing and what about John 3 16 and so many other scriptures on salvation
