ORDO SALUTIS according to Link Hudson
“(1) Preach and teach the Gospel so that people understand it.
(2) When they recieve [sic] the message, let them confess their faith and baptize them with water.
(3) Lay hands on them to be filled with the Spirit.
(4) After they have been baptized in water (whether by our own group or other believers) we accept them into fellowship and they can partake of communion with us.”

isn’t that CoG polity?
Link Hudson [11/05/2015 6:19 PM]
That’s the order in Acts 2. The Holy Ghost can change the order like he did in Acts 10. Peter’s response was ‘who can forbid water?”
Charles Page, the OP is a summary of something I wrote in another thread.

Haven’t seen the other discussion, but taken as stated above, I would agree with that.

do we just assume the initial evidence as speaking in tongues? Christopher Hart

Link Hudson, how (when) does one become regenerate in this order of salutis? if people fail to understand it or if the directions are unbiblical can they still be born again? there is closed communion? no that is pre-regenerate activity performed by God. He quickens the dead body to newness of life.

New birth is not done with a hook but through the gentle hands of the #CREATOR

New birth is not done with a hook but through the gentle hands of the Holy Baptizer!! cleansing water of regeneration

A very odd ordo salutis indeed.
John Kissinger [11/05/2015 7:44 PM]
I think Link has done a good framework – missing a few details
Henry Volk [11/05/2015 7:51 PM]
No, I mean the picture.
