Christian Unity: Unity and Baptism
This Elder in the Atlanta Church has some good ideas about the scripture. One of the problems I believe people have is that we've all heard the message, so to speak, from a young age. belief/repentance/confession/baptism were immediate to the New Testament era believer. Today, we are trained about Jesus from a very young age, and this decreases the violence done to our souls when we acknowledge our sins before God.
The IMMEDIACY of forgiveness is what is important to consider when thinking about conversion.
If you get this before 6:00 pm Eastern time Sunday, don't forget to pray for us downtown folks!!
Believe and Serve,
