    If God allows us free will then why would baptism make a difference ?

    Baptism is crap !

    You are just full of it today, STANG. 😛 Your question doesn't follow your premise. If we have free will, then we can choose to be baptised -- how does this constitute cr@p?

    I have never been baptised, Baptism dont save you, its just a symbol to show everyone that you been saved, just like marching in protest againts our goverment is a symbol that you dislike our goverment.

    You are speaking of "water baptism" ( I hope).....True Baptism is being "immersed in Holy Spirit"...This is required.


    Acts 1:4-5
    4 And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, "which," He said, "you have heard from Me;
    5 "for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now."

    No. He did his job. He was like a little light paving the way for the Light of the World.

    I'm starting to think that these are the most profound words on this thread.

    it makes a difference because after baptism, you are wetter(?) than before you were baptised

    I saw a baptism once. I didn't realise that the church had a swimming pool under its stage. The fellow walked down some stairs into the pool but tripped over on the way back out. He was not only wetter but also sore.

    sore from falling over, or sore from the knowledge that he had just made the biggest mistake of his life?

    What do you think Baptism means, does, or stands for? You must
    have some idea to simply call it crap.
