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.

Bishop Laurie Haller delivers the Episcopal Address at the 2017 session of the Iowa Annual Conference.“Are you modeling the love of Christ to everyone who walks through the doors of your churches? What are you doing outside your buildings for the people most in need in your communities, the state of Iowa, and this world? Are all of your many activities making a difference? Where’s your runway?”
