Split and Baptism

Actually the real issue has nothing to do with baptism but with the Scripture. Either we adhere to the Gospel or we do not and for most os us conservatives the choice is clear. Stick with God's word.

The Rub Comes Here

For me, the rub comes here. If one is a true believer and totally devoted to following Christ, I don't see how one could compromise on morality, or really any main tenant of Christianity. One's love, devotion and appreciation of Jesus, as a response to God's love, are enough to carry you over the rough places.

A couple of sayings from Rev. Adrian Rogers:
It's better to be divided by truth than united in error.
Better to die with conviction than to live with compromise.

I would note that we are not saved by baptism, but by faith in Christ through repentance and turning back to God as our Lord Jesus commanded.

Notable Quotes

“The period of Lent is given us to focus on what can be changed by listening carefully to the word of God. The word of God brings the clarity about injustices, but also how we are given a new opportunity to change injustices to justice. God has given that we in the death of Jesus Christ have been liberated from our trespasses as he was raised for our justification.”

– The Rev. Olav Fyske Tveit, top executive of the World Council of Churches, in a March 20 sermon marking World Water Day.

The Rev. Junius B. Dotson, top executive of Discipleship Ministries, lays out his agency’s plans to help United Methodists reach people for Jesus. He addressed his agency’s board in Nashville, Tenn.“We have tried to reverse this decline by trying to offering technical fixes, tinkering with our worship services, collecting huge amounts of data, tinkering with metrics and then when the metrics didn’t fit the picture we wanted, we readjusted the metrics.  [United Methodists] can’t program our way back to vitality; there is no quick fix."

– The Rev. Junius B. Dotson, top executive of Discipleship Ministries, unveiling his goals for the agency to create 1 million new Christian disciples over the next four years, reported by Heather Hahn of United Methodist News Service.
