How can The Salvation Army justify non-adherence to
the sacraments of baptism and the Eucharist
when it seems clear that the vast majority of other
denominations regard them as being
an intrinsic part of the Christian faith?

 Can such a position be defended using the Bible alone?

 And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it,
and gave it to them, saying,
"This is my body given for you;
do this in remembrance of me."

 Luke 22v19

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations,
baptising them in the name of
the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
Matthew  28 v19

'What a refreshing, Biblically sound approach to this subject...'

I received a copy of The Sacraments and the Bible by Captain Phil Layton yesterday and as it is only 55 pages stayed up late last night and read it through.

What a refreshing, Biblically sound approach to this subject...this book will take it's place on my book case along with Chosen to be a Solider and Salvation Story.

The way that Captain Layton starts the book by asking people to
'de-clutter' themselves of what they believe or think is a great way to

He then goes on to simply draw only from Scripture to show that as a
Salvationist you can stand before God on the day of judgement knowing that we can still have entry into Heaven even though we did not partake of the Eucharist or were not baptized.

It really comes down to reading what Scripture says - and not just one
verse...I would totally recommend this book to anyone interested.
I just wanted to write and say thank you so much for the wonderful book “The Sacraments and The Bible”.
