In a conversation recently, someone brought up Psalm 137:9.

Psalm 137:9 (NKJV)

9 Happy the one who takes and dashes

Your little ones against the rock!

What’s the Deal with Baptism? Part 2.

October 6th, 2011

There are many, widely differing views on water baptism.

  • Is it necessary for salvation or not?
  • Is it by sprinking or by immersion?
  • Is it for infants or those of have come “of age”?
  • When and how, by whom and in whose name should one be baptized?
  • Is it required for church membership?
  • Then you have several other baptisms mentioned in the Bible –
  • what about baptism for the dead?
  • baptism of fire?
  • Holy Spirit baptism?

Many who hold a particular view have a long church and family history in that tradition.  Furthermore, each view claims to have strong biblical support.  Two people arguing about baptism can each come up with various “proof” verses for their position.

All of this is a recipe for any discussion about water baptism to be very emotional and divisive.
