Feds drop demand for baptism permits

The waters became troubled when members of Gladden Baptist Church in Salem, Mo., were unable to access a section of Sinking Creek where they had been baptizing converts for nearly 50 years. In that time, members of the congregation would accompany the pastor and baptismal candidates to the water’s edge to participate in the service. The elderly and mobility-impaired were taken to the sandbar site in vans.

This all changed when the Park Service placed large boulders blocking the sandbar to vehicle traffic, including wheelchairs.

Faye Walmsley, ONSR’s public-information officer, told the Salem Times a special-use permit has been a requirement for all First Amendment activities – public demonstrations, press events, religious services – for the past 25 years, but “we have just never actively used the authority until 2006.” ...

How many here remember the Walton's episode pertaining to the subject matter of Baptism? The Baptist way of having an Altar Call during which individuals embrace Jesus as their Personal Savior was depicted accurately.

Baptism ~ immersion?? dipping??
Nope thats wrong translation.

"Baptist exegesis of Rom 6:4/Col 2:12 actually follows Roman Catholic hermeneutical principles. It is doubtless reinforced by the modern European mode of burial, which entails letting a coffin-encased body down into a six foot hole in a parish churchyard or municipal cemetery. However such imagery would not have been present to the minds of the Apostolic Christians. (Who wrote these verses). Their modes of burial were entirely different as a perusal of the historical sources soon indicates. More especially the texts Rom 6:4/Col 2:12 speak of the neophyte being "buried with Christ" and Christ's burial was of course nothing like a modern European burial. This point must be borne in mind that if baptism should be a dramatization "of burial with Christ" as the Scripture says, then such a burial cannot portray so much as a whisker of "going down into" or "dipping" or "immersion." (BRJ 2000 p35)

I still have to say baptism is of the Holy Spirit in this case. Has Christ been divided? No, because we have all been baptized into one body by the Holy Spirit. Paul says he thanks God he hadn't baptized any of them except those three and other than them he didn't know. How is it possible he water baptized people and wouldn't have known?! Yet, if people were baptized in the Holy Spirit by faith then it would be possible because not everyone spoke in tongues, there weren't always earthquakes and flames of fire resting on those who were baptized in the Holy Spirit. Also, do you believe the great commission means we should go out and baptize in water and Paul was being disobedient? However, the baptism of the Holy Spirit by laying on of hands may have been a ministry of the Apostles and early church leaders in order to show they were carrying on the ministry of Jesus Christ. Whereby we still baptize people by bringing them to faith which results in the filling of the Holy Spirit without hands. Spiritual circumcision not with hands.

Well I really don't care that the Catholic Church states that Infant Baptism imparts salvation. It is more logical and scriptural to believe that Infant Baptism and Adult Baptism are just a dedication of infants and adults to Jesus.

There is nothing unscriptural about Infant Baptism since it is just a dedication of infants to Jesus and does not impart salvation. Just as Adult Baptism is just a dedication adults to Jesus and does not impart salvation.

1) No, I don't necessarily believe water baptizing of disciples was wrong. Today's water baptism is a ceremony where the person being dunked is making a public professing of faith in Christ's death and resurrection. I let one of my sons do it. However, it isn't commanded in scripture and shouldn't be confused with real baptism of the Holy Spirit. The Jewish washings were a type of true baptism which came later.
2) Good question, I have to look into that.

John for Jesus -- when someone is baptized by the Holy Spirit, are they sprinkled or immersed?

1) No it proves nothing of the sort. This is a big mistake. The same greek word can and is translated in a variety of ways, and it is the translator's work to identify the correct one, as in this example. Carry on like this, John, and you will end up doubting the English Bible.
2) In our text, the word is "baptisms" NOT "water baptisms". Baptism is simply to be immersed in something; in the new testament we have different baptisms mentioned.
In Acts 2:38, it is so very obviously water baptism. You reckon a sinner can get himself baptised with the Spirit to order?
3) Think about it. Do you know ANYONE who decided to be baptised with the Spirit and who brought it about? A sinner cannot even repent except he be quickened by the Spirit - it is a work of God.

"Anabaptist views in general altogether foreign to Holy Scripture

Many, then, were the errors of Anabaptism. There were also different varieties of Anabaptists. Yet all agreed in rejecting infant baptism -- and, more importantly, also the historical continuity and therefore the social stability which it promotes.

In Holy Scripture itself, there is neither antipaidobaptism nor submersionism. The Bible insists that both believers and their infants were to be circumcised, before Calvary. There, however, circumcision was replaced by baptism -- and hence infant circumcision by infant baptism. Genesis 17:7-14; Acts 2:38f; Romans 4:11f; Colossians 2:11-13.

The modern Baptists (just like the mediaeval baptismal regenerationists) further insist that baptism should be administered only by way of submersion. That method, however, is totally foreign to the Word of God -- which knows only of sprinkling and pouring. Isaiah 32:15 & 44:1-5 & 52:15f; Ezekiel 36:25-27; Daniel 3:33 & 5:21; Joel 2:16,23,28f; Acts 1:5f & 2:1-4a,16f,33,38f and Hebrews 9:10-21. For abundant proof of this, see Francis Nigel Lee's monograph titled Sprinkling is Scriptural. The antipaidobaptism of the Anabaptists strongly characterizes their Baptist stepchildren today" (F.N.Lee)

It is to be lamented that wherever the remnant are found to be worshipping God their Saviour, their number is decreasing due to deceasing.

I don't think that rates a thumbsup.

However, I am thankful that when the Lord returns, the truly saved within the Calvin Presbys will willingly let go their bigoted thinking, and become quite normal, having the complete transformation of character, becoming as the Lord Jesus Christ himself, and thankfully we shall never hear them mention Mr Calvin and the WCF ever again, but they shall sing the new song of The Lamb in heaven, and at last the Blessed Lord shall have the preeminence which, at present, he is sadly lacking in the Presby community, who are more interested in their theologians than the Lord Jesus, and who can tell others more about theologians and confessions and leagues and covenants than they can about the Lord they claim has saved them.

"The correct modes are sprinkling or pouring

·John the Baptist's ministry was prophetic of the outpouring of the Spirit. It is inconceivable he would typify this by any other mode than pouring.
·Heb.9:10, identifies all Old Testament water-purification rituals as "baptisms.” Without exception, these were done by sprinkling or pouring, never by immersion. Compare these "sprinklings,” which are called baptisms in the following texts: Heb.9:13 = Nu.19:17-18 ?Heb.9:19 = Ex. 24:6,8 ?Heb.9:21 = Lev.8:19; 16:14

Baptism Is the External Sign and Seal of the Covenant of Grace Made with Abraham.
The Covenant made with Abraham is the same believers enjoy today. No fundamental changes, except in the sign and seal of entry into it. Let's look at the elements in common:
1.The promises made to Abraham were intended for New Testament believers also. Ro.4:16,23,24. ?
2.The Abrahamic Covenant is called "the gospel.” Ga.3:8 ?
3.The blessing is the same: The Holy Spirit. Ga.3:14 ?
4.The condition is the same:Faith alone. Ge.15:6 Ro.4:3 etc

Of course, the biggest dramatisation element in baptism comes from the RCC, the Anglican church and the Presbyterian church, whose sprinkling guarantees a visit from the Holy Ghost who regenerates the baptee.

In Baptist circles, the glorious event has already occurred. Thus the water baptism is a physical representation of the spiritual event. It is saying: "Look what God by grace has done!" Whereas the others are saying, "Look what we are forcing God to do!"
