Must He Be Baptized Again?
| Some scoff at the
necessity of baptism contending that one would then have to be baptized
again after every sin. This only reflects ignorance if not blatant
prejudice against what God has commanded.
When one is baptized into Christ for the remission of sin he is added to the saved (the church). His relationship to God is changed. He becomes God's spiritual child now. He will sin (1 John 8-10) but the way of forgiveness for the child of God is repentance, confession of sin and prayer (Acts 8:22; 1 John 1:9).
Some try every way they can to ignore the command to be baptized for salvation. But in spite of their efforts the words of Jesus are still clear. "He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved" (Mark. 16:16). Now why is that so difficult?
