The most commonly given answer to the question about salvation is, “If you want to be saved then just say the sinner’s prayer.” That prayer was unknown in the first century. It was unknown in the second, the third, the fourth, the fifth and for 15 centuries after Jesus started the church.

I am amazed how some individuals respond when they are shown the Bible’s answer to the question about salvation. Those who crucified Jesus asked the question about what they should do to be forgiven of their sins. (Acts 2:37) The answer given by the Holy Spirit was, “Repent and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins.” Heaven’s answer to the question of salvation was that those who believed were to repent and be baptized, and God would forgive them.
