both my huband and i were raised as s. baps....i left at 12 the age of decision....he stayed till he was in his early or mid 20's. last night we are watching some show, where someone says, you must be reborn to be saved. (for non s. bap that means baptized and public confession of sins) Matthew Chapter 28,verse 19, he said, "Go you therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost". The question before us is what was and is the action of that baptism commanded by Christ and his apostles. The Bible clearly describes the action of Christian baptism as a burial in water, for baptism is a likeness to the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ. Why Be Baptized? all hell broke loose....he says....all you must do to go to heaven is believe in jesus.... i told him he was full of shit....that one MUST BE born again to be saved. one must also accept the concept of the holy trinity....so all you other s. baps...which side do you fall on. just have to believe in jesus or rebirth by baptism the main reason i am so pissed is he tosses up the fact he was a s. bap a lot longer and his father is a s. bap minister, so he knows.
