Marcus Rogers - Misunderstanding Tongues and Baptism

By       (Page 4 of 5 pages)   1 comment

"It's just like baptism. Mark says that he who is baptized is saved and he who is not is damned.

Why do people get mad, because they don't have faith. Go back to Peter's first sermon. First repent, one action, then be baptized, two actions, and then ye shall be saved." - Marcus Rogers

The verse from Mark is like the above verses, in fact it is the preceding verse. It comes from the same section of added text. As such, to create a whole doctrine of damnation if not baptized is biblically criminal. How does Marcus explain Ephesians then:

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. - Ephesians 2:8-9 (ESV)

Baptism is most assuredly a work. Thus, any supposed conflict must be resolved by understanding the foundation which is salvation is of God and not because of any works of man. Now, Marcus came across his Mark verse, and it cause some consternation apparently but what did he do? Did he research and sort out the discrepancy? No, he staked a claim to his view and dismissed any other out hand. It doesn't work that way. As for Peter's sermon, I have no desire to reinvent the wheel. Got Questions has done some admirable work on this matter and if you wish to see that discussion, click this link:

Having a camera does mean you have been called by God. Studying to show yourself approved does. Marcus Rogers routinely dismisses any criticism as people who just have a religious spirit to which I say amen, I do! You see, God established religion, so stop trying to dirty the word. The bible always confirms if true. For example, we see in verse 2 of 1Corinthains 14 that speaking in tongues is uttering mysteries in the spirit. That sounds so esoteric until you shuffle down to verse 10 and discover that they once again are talking about known languages:

There are doubtless many different languages in the world, and none is without meaning, - 1Corinthians 14:10 (ESV)

Be not bewitched like the Galatians before you. Do not allow yourself to be built up in the faith of something that is not of God. Do not follow internet charlatans or chase the next big viral wave. If you insist on doing so, open your bible! Once they have proven themselves unworthy as Marcus Rogers did here, just mark and avoid them.
