6 thoughts on “Waters of Promise: Finding Meaning in Believer’s Baptism

    1. No, but one wonders where Paul means water and where he means Spirit.

      Much confusion (@ least, amongst many paedobaptist-types) ensues in Romans 6:1-5 ~

      What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound?
      Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it?
      Or do you not know that as many of us as were
      baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death?
      Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
      For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection. . .

      Let’s make much of
      what the water SYMBOLIZES, not what it supposedly ACCOMPLISHES;
      what it PICTURES, not what it putatively PRESENTS;
      what it TYPIFIES, not what it TRIES to do.
