Make the Comparison

  "He that eats and digests his food will be nourished. He that does not eat shall go hungry." Is eating necessary to be nourished? YES.  Is digesting necessary to be nourished? YES. Does eating without digesting provide nourishment? NO. Is digesting necessary to go hungry? NO. Without the eating the digesting becomes totally irrelevant. But both eating and digesting are vital to being nourished.

  "He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved. He that believeth not shall be damned." (Mark 16: 16). Is believing and being baptized necessary to being saved? YES. Just like eating and digesting. It takes both. Without believing being baptized is irrelevant.

  This is easy to understand the comparison is easily made. Somehow some rather follow their creed even when the truth is so easily understood.
