How many times do I have to say it? If anyone makes faith, repentance, believing, confession, water baptism a condition to get saved, they're promoting salvation by works, by what a person does.You are avoiding the question. Is faith, being a synonym of belief/believing, a prerequisite of salvation? Do you have to have faith to be saved? When Peter says, "Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins", is salvation predicated on the prerequisite act of repentance or does he say you must be saved first so that you can repent and be baptized?
