Parcels from the Preacher: April 7, 2024

I have noticed over the years quite a few religious arguments which appear to be amazingly
simple to assuage. One such question, “Does a baby need to be baptized?” is one which easily
comes to mind. Some religious groups argue the necessity of baptism for infants and children
whereas others negate the same idea. Just a thought, how and why one answers this question is
eternally essential. The answer lies in what is sin, purpose of baptism, and who holds ultimate
authority in all things Scriptural. In the fifth of First John, he writes sin is unrighteousness.
Question, what unrighteousness has a child committed. None.

The purpose of baptism of is FOR the remission of sin as we learn in the third of First Peter. If a
child has no concept of sin and by virtue of their mentality, could not commit sin in the first
place, what need would there be to baptize? Most arguments culminate in the mishandling of
God’s authority. Paul teaches all of humanity to “rightly divide the Word” so we can correctly
disciple Christ in our living, thoughts, prayers, and worship.

Are you willing to ask the question, if I incorrect on baptism, if it possible to be incorrect in
other places? God is our authority in all things Spiritual. God left us with the Bible so we could
manifest His will on this side of the Cross. When we refuse to “add or take away” from His will
we are blessed. Hope this helps.

Have the day you are meant to have in Christ alone,
