The Thief on the Cross

by admin

The Thief on the Cross Mike Johnson The Bible teaches that baptism is for the remission of sins (Acts 2:38), washes away sins (Acts 22:16), saves (1 Pet. 3:21, Mk. 16:16), and puts people into Christ (Rom. 6:3, Gal. 3:27).  After listening to this teaching, some may ask, “What about the thief on the cross?”  […]

The Form of Baptism

by admin

THE FORM OF BAPTISM Mike Johnson What is the form of baptism taught in the Bible?  There is division in the religious world regarding this question. One creed says dipping someone in water is not necessary, but, instead, sprinkling or pouring water on an individual is acceptable. Some say immersion is a choice, while others […]

Infant Baptism

Infant Baptism Mike Johnson There is a lot of disagreement on the subject of baptism. People disagree on the purpose of baptism as well as how to baptize someone. There is also controversy regarding whom to baptize. Some say infants are proper candidates for baptism, while others say a person must be a penitent believer before baptism. Is there authority for […]

The Purpose of Baptism & Acts 9:17

by admin

THE PURPOSE OF BAPTISM & ACTS 9:17 Mike Johnson If baptism is for the remission of sins, why did Ananias call Saul “brother” previous to his baptism?  This objection is sometimes raised regarding Saul’s conversion.  Acts 22:16 does point out that Saul was baptized to wash away his sins.  However, the response of the objector […]

I Would Be Wet All the Time

“I WOULD BE WET ALL THE TIME”  Mike Johnson   The Bible teaches that baptism is for the remission of sins (Acts 2:38) and, thus, is essential for salvation.  Sometimes people object to what this passage says about baptism by saying, “If baptism is for the remission of sins, then it would be necessary to […]

The Purpose of Baptism

by admin

The Purpose of Baptism Mike Johnson  Baptism has been a controversial subject in the religious world and also a neglected subject by many preachers and teachers.  Baptism is not at all an obscure subject as the word “baptism,” or some form of it, occurs more than one hundred times in the New Testament.  This subject […]

He That is Baptized Not?

by admin

HE THAT IS BAPTIZED NOT?  Mike Johnson Mark 16:16 says, “He who believes and is baptized will be saved…” This verse shows plainly the purpose of both “belief” and “baptism.”  However, some point out that since the last part of verse 16 says, “…but he who does not believe will be condemned,” and does not […]

Baptism and the Conversion of Saul

by admin

BAPTISM AND THE CONVERSION OF SAUL Mike Johnson In Acts 9, we read of the conversion of Saul. Here we learn that Saul was on his way to Damascus to persecute Christians when the Lord appeared to him. At this point, he realized that Christ was God’s son (v. 6). Christ then told Saul to go […]

Belief & Baptism

by admin

BELIEF AND BAPTISM Mike Johnson Mark 16:16 says, “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved, but he that believeth not shall be damned.”  Jesus spoke these words just prior to his ascension.  Here, salvation is promised but it is conditional.  Actually, there are two conditions stated as being necessary for salvation. They are […]
