quote"Does a ring on a women's finger have NOTHING to do with her commitment to her husband? So is the same with our beloved Husband."The ring is an outward symbol of her committment just as baptism is an outward ceremony of a persons (or their parents) committment to God. If the ring is lost? are they not still married? if person was never baptised but confesses Christ as their saviour aren't they still saved? I was baptised as an infant and remember nothing of it. the ceremony was undertaken for my parents and really has nothing to do with my salvation.I'm not speaking out against it at all and wouldn't speak out against rings in the wedding ceremony, but both are unnecessary and some people may opt out.Bub
Jesus also said "unless you eat my fleah and drink my blood you have no life in you." when they were offended by this saying, he then said, " the flesh profits nothing, the words I speak to you are spirit and life." baptism cannot save anyone, but is an outward declaration of your commitment to Christ and is not reqired for salvation. If so then you tell the person who gets born again on their death bed then dies that they have to go to hell because they were not baptized in water.
BTW, when's the last time you sacrificed a lamb on the alter? Not lately? Jesus made it unnecessary, as He did baptism. What else could be the point of "he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost." If you are baptized with the Holy Ghost why waste your time with water, expect for the outward ceremonial purposes?
