The Thief on the Cross: A Choose Your Own Adventure Story About Works-Salvation


43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise, if ye subscribe to the 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith.

44 For truly I tell you, a dry baby is a happy baby.

45 But the malefactor rebuked Jesus and said, Nay, I shall sprinkle my babies, for they are covenant members of thine church.

46 And Jesus replied, How shalt ye know that thine babies are church members without hearing their confession of faith in me?

47 And the thief said, Truly, they are members of my household and under my headship they are members of your church.

48 But Jesus replied, Never mind - you are truly not one of the elect, for I have hated you from before the foundation of the world and chosen against you. What I said at first was surely a hypothetical, for if thou believed in me, ye would be saved, yet I have not chosen ye to believe in me.

49 And the r/reformed mods verily intervened and put a stop to their conversation, for accusing another of not being elect because of such matters is against the rules.
