Great Sermon! I am challenged to fight the tendency in prayer to get to "the list", without having spent time focusing on who God is and on what He has already done, and is presently doing on my behalf, and giving Him the praise and thanksgiving He is due.
Infant Baptism And Adult Baptism Since Baptism does not impart salvation then I consider Infant Baptism to be just a dedication of infants to Jesus. I also consider Adult Baptism to be just a dedication of adults to Jesus.
Thank You Thank you for a very insightfull study of this topic. The practice of infant baptism cannot be found anywhere in scripture or the early church. Yet Godly Christians practice this.
Infant baptism was a way for state-religions to exercise power by way of declaring someone its member. The rationale for Christians who practice this today is that baptism is a New Tetament replacement of Old Testament circumcism. This is an unnecessary stretching of scripture.
A Deep Sermon! This teaching really made me look at myself in a different light. Too much self takes me away from God. Who is most important....self....or God?
Thank you for this self-examination. I will try to remember it every day.
Love Instead of Divorce How does divorce even work for the innocent party? If a husband divorces his unrepentant adulterous wife, and remarries, won't 50-60% of his wages be garnished for child support despite joint custody? Therefore, how can the average man afford the loss of 1/2 his income and later support another wife and subsequent children? In reality, isn't divorce often a dead end? Better idea to forgive and pray for their conversion & reconciliation. Excellent message!
