Core Christianity: Tough Questions Answered

To Sprinkle or Immerse? What is the Proper Mode of Baptism?

Episode 701 Show Notes 

From the Show

What is baptism first and foremost? Is it something that you or I do as an individual? Or is it something that God has done and is doing? First and foremost, baptism is a sign of the gospel. A sign of the washing away of sins. We come before the Lord helpless, in need of his mercy and grace.

–Adriel Sanchez

To Sprinkle or Immerse? What is the Proper Mode of Baptism?

Questions in this Episode

  1. Is baptism by sprinkling legitimate? Is infant baptism legitimate?
  2. How can we avoid adding to the gospel?
  3. Does God forgive repeated sins, even after you repent of these sins but fall back into them?
  4. I know that Christians are not supposed to be fearful, but due to my traumatic upbringing, I find it very difficult to not be fearful. Does this affect my salvation and mean I am not a Christian if I continually find myself being fearful?
