Why so concerned with ritual and mysticism?<quoted text>
You're right Jethro..baptism symbolizes that we have new life in Christ.
The article said this.."Our physical birth was a "born of water" (mother’s water) birth".
So let me ask you this. Nicodemus was an old man, so if the "water" refers to physical birth, why would Jesus tell an old man, he has to be "born" to enter into the kingdom of Heaven? Obviously Nicodemus already accomplished list..
Whats wrong with the ethics and morals taught by Jesus?
Oh, I forgot.
