Q As I understand your articles on salvation,. ..

A are saying that one MUST be water baptized in order to enter heaven? Is this statement correct? If you agree with this statement, then I will have to disagree with you on this point. This is a very crucial issue. ALthough I believe 100% wholeheartedly in water baptism and believe that every person who wants to receive Christ should be baptized, I don't believe that unless one is baptized he will not see heaven. (From an Internet Ministry)

That one can go to heaven even without being baptized is simply your opinion and nothing more. Listen to what Jesus says: "Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? 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" (John 3:3-5). The publicans and sinners are baptized and enter heaven ahead of you (Matt.21:25-32). "And all the people that heard him, and the publicans, justified God, being baptized with the baptism of John. But the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the counsel of God against themselves, being not baptized of him. But wisdom is justified of all her children" (Luke 7:29,30,35). They preached the gospel and baptized those who asked "Sirs, what must I do to be saved?" (Acts 16:30-33; Acts 2:37-42).

We don't accept the opinions of men. Send for the apostle and listen to his teaching for you and your household to be saved (Acts 11:12-14; Acts 10:32). Your fleshly counsel may not profit anything. Obey the words of Jesus Christ (John 6:63,68). "baptism doth .... save us" (1 Pet.3:22).

Q Regarding the article on "soul"... We believe that we possess a spirit, soul...

..., and body. Our spirit goes to be with the Lord. Our soul is made up of our mind, will , and emotions and cease to exist when our bodies die. You talk so much about the soul, but not about the spirit...Please clarify your position on this. (From an Internet Ministry)

When man dies his body perishes but his soul and spirit lives before God (Eccl.12:7; 3:20,21; Luke 20:28; Matt.22:28-32). For the people of God, resurrection is bodily resurrection only. "Blessed are the dead which die (bodily death) in the Lord" (Rev.14:13). It is important to be saved right now rather than to keep debating on this (2 Cor.6:2).

Your position on women preachers....


.. The great commission is for ALL believers...that includes women. We are all to go into the world and preach the gospel to all creation. Millions of people have come to the Lord because of a woman preacher. This is not satan's device, but rather the will of God. (From an Internet Ministry)

There was not a single woman among the 12 apostles chosen by Jesus Christ. There was not a single woman among the 70 disciples sent by Jesus Christ (Luke 10:1). There was not a single woman among the 7 deacons appointed by the early church (Acts 6:5). There was not a single woman among the 5 ministers in the church at Antioch. Only men were sent as missionaries and evangelists. Women might have rendered help then and there. "endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry" (2 Tim.4:5). Women can witness and tell the gospel but they are not "evangelists"; All those who are saved can witness this way anywhere (Acts 8:4; 11:18-20).

Some women who are mentioned to be in the ministry are only the wives of the ministers (1 Tim.3:10,11; Rom 16:1; Philemon 1:1,2 ). "And let these also first be proved; then let them use the office of a deacon, being found blameless. Even so must their wives be grave, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things" (1 Tim.3:10,11); Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence" ( 1 Tim. 2:11,12). In the last day, Lord Jesus Christ called only the eleven apostles and commanded (Matt.28:16-20) (He did not command even a single woman). (Matt.28:16-20; Luke 24:50-53;Acts 1:1-3; 10:40-43). Brother, the fallen churches will be ruled by women (Isa.3:12). The second time God commanded Moses: "Take the rod, and gather thou the assembly together, thou, and Aaron thy brother, and speak ye unto the rock before their eyes; and it shall give forth his water" (Num.20:7,8). But Mose lost his patience and smote the rock twice; Water gushed forth abundantly; The Israelites and their cattle drank the water and quenched their thirst. But the act of Moses was counted as a sin. Aaron had to die on the way and Moses could not enter the land of Canaan (Num.20:9-12; Deut.3:26-28). What is important is not the blessing but obedience to the Lord's word. We preach and emphasize only the word of God (Isa.42:21) "I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy loving kindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name" (Ps.138:2). Brother, The Lord Jesus commanded only His apostles to build the church and to preach (Acts 1:1-3). Apostles also said that God commanded them alone : "Him God raised up the third day, and shewed him openly; Not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before of God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead. And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick and dead. To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins" (Acts 10:40-43). Therefore the ministry of church should be conducted only under the leadership of apostles (Eph.4:11-16; 1 Cor.12:28). No woman is authorized to place her hands on anyone; Those who do that will fail in their lives and in the ministry.

Brother, you are confused as you do not know the church. You should join the church. There is always imperfection in teaching the truth in all the groups which are not part of the church. God commanded me to build the church again. God commanded me to preach the full gospel again (Matt.16:18,19; Rev.10:11).
