Chris's Acts Chapter 16 comment about verse 31 on 11/25/2020, 12:17am...

When the prison guard feared that Paul & Silas had escaped prison (but had not), he became so convicted by their actions & no doubt, by the words that he would have heard them speak, that he wanted to know the way of salvation.

Paul's simple word was clear, "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house." Acts 16:30-34.

So we see that salvation can only come by hearing the Gospel & for each person to respond to it personally. This verse does not suggest 'household salvation/baptism', where if one person is saved then the others in the house are too. No, each one is responsible to believe & respond. And for young ones who may not be able to, then it's the parent's responsibility to teach them.

And the amazing thing we learn, Paul & Silas did all this (sharing the Gospel to the guard's family at night & baptizing them straightaway) & then returning back to be put behind bars, to be released the following day.

So I understand that the person must believe and live in the house hold. So a hold not in the home and a parent

Themselves must believe I'm Christ themselves.
