I think, in our day had God had this Word of God written, He might have said it something like,
“And certain men and women, having been at Headquarters, came down to the areas and they taught
the believers that unless they believe that Jesus is God, they would not be able to get saved.” In this
day, when it was written, they taught the brethren, except the believers would get circumcised, they
could not be saved. Circumcision has sort of ‘worn out’ from a religious point of view. What is
happening, in many places, is that people are saying, “Except you be baptized in water, you cannot
be saved. Except you get immersed, you cannot be saved.” From many different headquarters, you
hear these things. One group will talk about sprinkling, another one about dipping. One group will
talk about, “If you’re not baptized, there’s absolutely no way whereby you can be saved.

Victor Paul Wierwille was a Bible scholar and teacher for over four decades.
By means of Dr. Wierwille's dynamic teaching of the accuracy and integrity of God's Word, foundational class and advanced class graduates of Power for Abundant Living have learned that the one great requirement for every student of the Bible is to rightly divide the Word of Truth. Thus, his presentation of the Word of God was designed for students who desire the in-depth-accuracy of God’s Word.
In his many years of research, Dr. Wierwille studied with such men as Karl Barth, E. Stanley Jones, Glenn Clark, Bishop K.C. Pillai, and George M. Lamsa. His formal training included Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Theology degrees from Mission House (Lakeland) College and Seminary. He studied at the University of Chicago and at Princeton Theological Seminary from which he received a Master of Theology degree in Practical Theology. Later he completed his work for the Doctor of Theology degree.
Dr. Wierwille taught the first class on Power for Abundant Living in 1953.
Books by Dr. Wierwille include: Are the Dead Alive Now? published in 1971; Receiving the Holy Spirit Today published in 1972; five volumes of Studies in Abundant Living— The Bible Tells Me So (1971), The New, Dynamic Church (1971), The Word's Way (1971), God's Magnified Word (1977), Order My Steps in Thy Word (1985); Jesus Christ Is Not God (1975); Jesus Christ Our Passover (1980); and Jesus Christ Our Promised Seed (1982).
Dr. Wierwille researched God's Word, taught, wrote, and traveled worldwide, holding forth the accuracy of God's "wonderful, matchless" Word.
