Just prior to my adult Sunday school class a man complained to me about people on the internet cherry-picking Scripture to support their ideas. However, during the class he himself did something similar when he declared, “You don’t have to be baptized to be saved. Just look to the thief on the cross…” The man then went on to cherry-pick Scripture which related to salvation, but excluded the act of baptism. Paul said, “Keep reminding them of these things. Warn them before God against quarreling about words; it is of no value, and only ruins those who listen. Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:14-15 NIV).
