In his little booklet, What Baptists Believe And Why They Believe It, J. G. Bow wrote,
"Baptists believe that no one is a scriptural subject for baptism till he is already saved. All
well-informed people know that we teach this; then upon what ground can they say we believe
baptism essential to salvation?" (pp. 36-37).
A clearer statement of Baptist doctrine concerning baptism cannot be found. Neither can be found a clearer rejection of Jesus words in Mark 16:16: "He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved." But Baptists say "He that believeth and is saved shall be baptized," clearly perverting the words of Christ.
Baptism is not the only requisite to salvation, but it is a requisite. What Bow states above is the exact position of Billy Graham who has, for decades, preached a false doctrine and led men to eternal destruction. Satan added one small three-letter word to God's command and brought destruction to the human race (Gen. 2:17; 3:4). Satan must surely rejoice at the modern Baptist perversion of God's word.
