Baptism is described and explained the New Testament scriptures as a burial in water at which point the believing person begins a new relationship with Christ. In Acts 2:38, Peter commanded all to “repent and be baptized…in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins…” What about those whose baptism differs from that shown in the scriptures, either in purpose or design? In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak we learn more about a group of people who were immersed twice as we ask the question: Should You Be Re-baptized?
Baptism is a commandment of Jesus Christ to every person who desires to come to Him in faith. The scriptures plainly state that several things take place and the one who believes is benefited in several ways when they submit to Christ in this sacred step. There are also things that baptism will not do. In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak, distinguish those things that occur in scriptural baptism from the things this act of obedience will not accomplish.
Jesus once posed a rhetorical question that one can not affirmatively answer: “What shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” Most people are thoughtlessly trading their most precious possession for things of little to no worth. What is a soul and what makes it so invaluable? In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak, we consider The Worth Of Your Soul. Take a few moments and watch. It may affect where you spend eternity.
The finite mind cannot fully comprehend something or someone infinite. The tendency of mankind, therefore, is to reduce God to human likeness. Since people change, some assume that God changes with the passing of time as well but such is not the case. God is immutable. He does not choose to be so, He IS so because He is God. Change implies something improving or declining; getting larger or smaller; etc. but God cannot change and still be God. How could we truly know God, much less place our faith in One who vacillates and changes from one age to the next? But how do we reconcile this with changes we observe in the word of God itself? Is this a contradiction or does it mean that God has changed? In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak, we look at the God who is unchanging in His purposes, His person, His pronouncements, and His promises.
