I have not read the book and am not likely to purchase it. I did notice that there was no part of it set forth to demonstrate his thinking. Based on what was shown concerning Acts 2:38 and Acts 22:16, it appears that he has stepped aside from the Scripture. It reminds me of a radio preacher I heard who said, "If you read Acts 2:38 you would conclude that baptism was essential to salvation, but now let me tell you what it really means." He disclosed his belief == baptism was not essential to salvation. I have always wondered why God thought the inspiration of the Holy Spirit did not have it written like the preacher wanted. I don't think the preacher had a son who went to the cross and dies for my sins, but God did. It was only his son sacrifice was made to be a sinner for me, and who then told me in His Word, "Repent ye, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ unto the remission of your sins; and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. " I prefer to follow my Savior and not this writer. Should this writer which to debate the issue in public, I am sure that I can arrange it. Jess Hall, Jr.
