ADDING (Part 2)

The new covenant doctrine of adding is found in the following passages of scripture:

Acts 2:41  Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added 

unto them about three thousand souls.

Acts 2:47  Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily 

such as should be saved.

Acts 5:14  And believers were the more added to the Lord, multitudes both of men and women.)

Acts 11:24  For he was a good man, and full of the Holy Ghost and of faith: and much people was

added unto the Lord.

 

Who is added?

-Souls.  Acts 2:41

-Souls which are saved. Acts 2:47

-Souls which are saved by believing on and turning to the Lord. Acts 5:14; 11:24

 

To whom are they added?

-to the church Acts 2:47

-to the Lord Acts 5:14; 11:24

 

When are they added?

-The same day as they gladly receive His word. Acts 2:41

– On the day of salvation. Acts 2:47

– No one is ever added to the Lord or to the church at any other time!

 

Who is responsible to do the adding?

the Lord. Acts 2:47

 

Is the responsibility for adding to the church or to the Lord ever committed to men?

There is not a verse of scripture that teaches that men are ever given such a responsibility!
