Core Christianity: Tough Questions Answered

What Makes a Baptism Invalid?

Episode 889 Show Notes 

From the Show

It is not the holiness of your pastor that makes your baptism stick. Pastors are imperfect sinners. It’s Jesus and his Word and Spirit that makes a baptism truly a baptism.

What Makes a Baptism Invalid?

Questions in this Episode

  1. Did God or the angels destroy Sodom and Gomorrah?
  2. If Jesus spoke to Paul on the road to Damascus, why would he not speak to us today?
  3. A friend of mine has been performing baptisms for his friends on his own in his bathroom tub. He is not an elder of a church and this isn’t in a home church. Do these baptisms hold any validity?
  4. What should I know about the difference between law and grace and where or what should I be reading to get good handle on this subject?
  5. Should we call out and rebuke those who do street preaching and who are preaching ‘fire and brimstone’?
