No need to be rude to Rose, she believes as you.

Actually Jesus says faith AND baptism, and in no particular order.

So you think you can't be condemned if you aren't baptized .
So only Christians are condemned .
But those hearing about Jesus who reject Him are NOT condemned because they were never baptized?????
That makes no sense at all ..your saying heaven is,full of atheists who rejected the Lord ..
But we who embraced the,Lord and were baptized are in danger I f condemnation..
We are condemned as long as we are still in our sins....and considered outside of Christ.....

So a person who is minutes from dying acknowledges he/she is a lost sinner, repents, and receives Christ by faith is not welcome in the Kingdom of God because he/she was not baptized...you're as lost as the catholics Hank.

Chuckie,

Before Jesus, the world was already condemned....

Why???

Because of people's sin.....

Doing nothing maintains our condemnation, as we are still in our sins.

Something has to happen to change the outcome of one's self from being condemned.....

Jesus came to a world of darkness already condemned from their sins in which they have committed.

Now, does the NEW BIRTH change this condemnation???

"no particular order"....I chuckle when I read that.

So you get baptism like your mom and dad did for you and then later on you receive Christ by faith...interesting.

Kind of like going to Chicago. There are many ways to get there...

Peter told Simon the Sorcerer after he was baptized his heart wasn't right...maybe his mommy and daddy didn't take him to be baptized like yours did.

So, Chuckie, you don't believe that it is necessary to participate in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus....

You don't believe that we MUST experience our NEW BIRTH in Jesus.

Just as we are born physically......

WE MUST BE BORN SPIRITUALLY......

In a literal sense, baptism is not salvation, and salvation is not baptism.

I think most of the people on here are getting mixed up on eternal salvation, and God's Providence of temporal things here concerning baptism.

We need to be spiritually minded, as beings which are spiritual.
As a Catholic, one is most often baptized as an infant, in which is held the belief that God's spiritual gifts are then infused within the soul. It then becomes the obligation of parents to nurture, and as an adult to pursue these gifts. In particular, if you remember; faith, hope, and love.

This is of course rejected by many non-Catholics, who hold that salvation is more like a covering, or washing away of sin. This is where the confusion of eternal and temporal aspects of baptism and salvation seem centered.(Of course the salvation of God is eternal in the washing of regeneration, the born-again experience. Salvation because of Jesus's sacrifice.) But also one must accept that hope supersedes one's sins, and God is Everlasting. He is not limited to the timeline of Creation. This makes infant baptism valid, in my opinion.

You all have a good evening. If there is one thing we can learn from today it's Campellites like Hank and Catholics like Tony believe the same. The other thing they disagree on, is that they both believe they are a member of the true church.

Satan is clever ain't he.....lol

Chuck chuckling makes me chuckle. Would you like to discuss the several questions I posed to you or would you rather just make snide comments about my Christian faith?

“The light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil.”

Light = Jesus

Darkness = Sin

Has a transformation occurred yet?

No....why?

Because they are still in their sins....

Would we rather live for ourselves (IN SIN) rather than be saved (FROM THE BONDAGE OF SIN) from our condemnation.

I believe the "make disciples, baptizing them...." part has been understood since the earliest times as baptism being the means by which we are made disciples. Just a thought.
http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/...

First they have to be taught ..correct ..making them disciples

Comes BEFORE baptizing them ..

I'm not at all against b as by baptism..

But the verse teaches THRY must be taught and be made disciples ...

Baptism Itself cannot make a disciple ...right ..???

Many people baptize their KidS just to do it ..have a,Christening party..do it because it's,expected ...

If Baptism is all they receive ..how can they be disciples ..or even saved..once they reach the age of reason..

Not all parents ate good Catholics or non Catholic Christians ..

Peace

Baptism "may" be more inclusive, and not as literal as some people assume....

I leave it for God to Judge just how inclusive He desires, not only for others, but myself as well.
