How Was The Thief On The Cross Saved ?

The thief on the cross. It has NOTHING to do with baptism or no baptism as the baptism instituted in Israel's program at that time was John the Baptist's baptism.

The answer is simple.

Mark 2:9-11 KJV
Whether is it easier to say to the sick of the palsy, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and take up thy bed, and walk?
But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (he saith to the sick of the palsy,)
I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy bed, and go thy way into thine house.

Mark 2:5 KJV
When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee.

Luke 7:47-48 KJV  
Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little.
And he said unto her, Thy sins are forgiven.

How was the thief on the cross able to go to paradise?

"the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins"

Very simple. All other views are religion, not scriptural.

Grace and Peace !!!
