I was reading a Gospel tract of a Reformed Pastor who I believe to be very sound (5 point Calvinist). I was curious at your observations. At the conclusion of the tract it reads, Do you know what God wants you to do now? Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. "For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call." Then he called for a light, ran in, and fell down trembling before Paul and Silas. And he brought them out and said, "Sirs, what must I do to be saved?" So they said, "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household." Acts 2:38-39; 16:29-34 Do you understand the following statement? In order to avoid eternal punishment in hell and gain eternal life in heaven, you must: . confess your sins, . repent of your sins, . place your faith and trust in God by believing that Jesus Christ died to save sinners, and . be baptized in the name of God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ), and God the Holy Spirit. Is there anything wrong with this? Some might say that it leans to baptismal regeneration though that might be a Baptist knee jerk reaction. Baptism is the response of Faith. Generaly speaking , those who have faith in Christ should be baptized and Baptism as Peter states is a pledge of a good conscience. Certaintly Peter was no teaching Baptismal regeneration in Acts 2:38 and I know this pastor has wrote against it. I at first reading thought it might lean towards Baptismal reneration but that could be the Baptismal regeneration phobia syndrome that we Baptists often have.
