If Baptism Doesn’t Save Us, What Does It Do?

host Adriel Sanchez aired August 1, 2022

Episode 1022 Show Notes 

From the Show

The promises of God are extended to us in baptism and we are called to lay hold of those promises by faith. When you are baptized, this is a gift given to you by God.

What Does It Look Like to Put God First in Your Life?

Questions in this Episode

  1. I am planning a trip to Israel and was looking forward to being baptized again in the Jordan river. I know you have said once is enough. But is it ok to do it again for this special occasion?
  2. I was baptized as an infant and I don’t understand the repercussions of that. Can you help me understand the repercussions of baptism as a whole, I know it is in scripture, and that it doesn’t save you, but I am not sure what else it signifies or means.
  3. Are pastors ignoring the Final Judgment if they don’t preach the fear of God?
  4. How should I respond to those who refuse to forgive me?
