Happy Easter!

The fact that Jesus rose from the dead on the third day is our only hope. If you are redeemed, you will have a resurrection body. We will be resurrected by the power of Christ.

>12 Now if Christ is preached, that He has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead?

>13 But if there is no resurrection of the dead, not even Christ has been raised;

>14 and if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is vain, your faith also is vain.

>15 Moreover we are even found to be false witnesses of God, because we testified against God that He raised Christ, whom He did not raise, if in fact the dead are not raised.

>16 For if the dead are not raised, not even Christ has been raised;

>17 and if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins.

>18 Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished.

>19 If we have hoped in Christ in this life only, we are of all men most to be pitied.

>We are by definition supernaturalists, believing in the spiritual realm.

While esoteric stuff happens only on the mind with no effect on anything in reality, God's work manifests in the actual physical realm, while being explained away as "accident" or "coincidence" by non-believers.

This is the difference between various "magic" teachings (usually involving drugs), which at most give you hallucinations and the actual truth (Christianity).

I am a non demon Christian. For the past month or so I been studying Romans and I just cant shake off how baptism is described as being buried with Christ. Not sure, I looked at Beasley Murray's book on baptism in the NT but it only just seems like baptismal regeneration, which isnt what I was told by my evangelical friends.

Should I just be a Lutheran? Am I missing something here?

You're in the Bible belt. There is no shortage of conservative Protestant churches where you are, they're just usually not the ones with the billboards.

The issue you're identifying isn't ubiquitous across Protestant churches, and it isn't outright solved in eastern orthodoxy or roman catholicism.

The SBTC is the conservative side of southern Baptist in Texas

If you wanted to go to a traditional Latin mass, it looks like there is an FSSP parish pretty close to you. The main mass is at 9 AM. The other masses are listed as low masses (meaning the priest wouldn't chant). Also, if you go this Sunday (Easter) evidently they have an easter egg hunt and barbeque.

presuming you mean 3:21

> The problem is in Greek, the usage of the term in early papyri shows that it is literally contracts signed to enter into a trade agreement.

I'm lost, are you saying there was a different term on certain papyrus manuscripts that you think is correct, which isn't used now?

>Baptism is like a contract

yes, the sign of the new covenant. The question is what the terms of the "contract" are on our end. Are you just reasoning that such a "contract" must necessarily require work on man's side, even if it seems to contradict Paul's labor on justification by faith?

Consider the covenant that God made with Himself in Genesis 15.

>Baptism by the Spirit in the New Testament is also not the Evangelical born again thing but a parallel to John the Baptist's baptism. We know this thanks to Acts 2 which shows this.

I'm not following what you mean. Who teaches something like this?

>"Repent and be baptized" means baptism is a saving work

Contradiction with Eph 2. Baptism is inextricably linked with belief unto salvation, but is not presented here as a necessary condition.

It is not an evangelical argument that baptism is not an instruction to everyone. The only debate is the role it plays in salvation.

You're kind of stringing a bunch of thoughts together and it's clear you've argued over a number of key passages, but it's really impossible for me to follow. Did you read something that persuaded you to this position? If so, what was it? Who teaches what you're saying about John's baptism?

You have a complex systematic theology on this, but that does not permit the fundamental error you're making: salvation as a result of works contradicts God's word. Dance around this fact at your own peril.

af99d8  No.3096


1)the term "ἐπερωτάω" in 1Peter 3:21 in early Greek papyri all refer to contracts used in trade relationships. This is against your view because no Evangelical or Baptist view Baptism as a contract that must be signed to enter into a relationship. The fact that you cannot understand my mention of "trade contract" also essentially makes what you present as a non argument. Because it does not tell us why your understanding accords to the text or why it is consonant with the usage of ἐπερωτάω in Greek. People who want to establish trade relations do so by signing a contract to rectify and enact the agreement. And this is why it is the means where one enters into trade relationships. Hence the parallel is clear for Baptism. It is the contract signed to enter the New Covenant


2)Non argument. Because it isnt some sign of something already done in the past but the means by which one enters into the relationship. As my point on ἐπερωτάω shows, what I presented is accurate to the grammatical context contra your view. In fact in the OT there are plenty of examples of visible signs given to assure and reinforce God's promises. For instance Gen 9:12–17 where the rainbow is the sign of God's promise to Noah. In Gen 13:14–17, God's promise to Abraham is shown to be binded through sight. These signs are the visual means by which the contract or promise given by God is sealed.

Also Galatians 3 shows whosoever is Baptized into Christ, puts on Christ. And no, this is not the Baptism of Spirit ala Baptist born again. It's water Baptism because this is the only way Paul's point can make sense, as Baptism by its own meaning in Greek is always water related. Hence 1Corinthians saying the Israelites were Baptized into Moses refer to the Red Sea crossing. The water wasnt a metaphor or some Spirit. It was real water that parted! Josephus uses the term to refPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

>I am the only one intertextualizing and going into context here

I'm not trying to give you a master's thesis man, I'm just trying to understand what you're saying.

By the way you're not; you're just throwing a bunch of talking points up.

You're reasoning that sola fide is incompatible with 1 Peter 3:21 because of the use of eperotao, and the term's use in other greek documents of the time is the basis for a change in interpretation on that operative word. Is that right?

>during justification

The use of these words at that point in your post is strictly a denial of the gospel of Jesus Christ, because our justification before God is not something that occurs within us where we are made truly pleasing to God in and of ourselves and declared righteous on the basis that we truly are righteous and good. We are not declared righteous on the basis of something pleasing in us, because we are nothing but displeasing to a holy God. This is why God declares us just, because we have died and now He sees only Christ, Romans 7:1-4

<Or do you not know, brothers—for I am speaking to those who know the law—that the law is binding on a person only as long as he lives? For a married woman is bound by law to her husband while he lives, but if her husband dies she is released from the law of marriage. Accordingly, she will be called an adulteress if she lives with another man while her husband is alive. But if her husband dies, she is free from that law, and if she marries another man she is not an adulteress. Likewise, my brothers, you also have died to the law through the body of Christ, so that you may belong to another, to him who has been raised from the dead, in order that we may bear fruit for God.

The Noahic covenant instructs execution for muderers. This responsibility is never scripturally handed off to a government, it's a moral obligation for God-fearers to this day.

Abortion is murder.

The US government does not criminalize abortion.


You have a responsibility to kill self professed committers of abortion.

Genesis 9:6 NASB — “Whoever sheds man’s blood,

The murderer (whoever sheds man's blood) should be executed (his blood shall be shed). And who does the execution, is it God? No. "By man" shall he be executed.

Started going to prayer meetings where we get lists of people going through different hardships and we all get in groups and pray for like 30 minutes straight.

Also go soul winning on saturdays which has been fun.

Well according to the bible. Everyone will have to go through the great tribulation unless the rapture is true then only those that haven't repented will face tribulation. So majority of humanity. Then they will have to go through the 7 trumpets 1-6 are merciful as in you can still repent through them. However once 7 is blown the people are irrideemable and will face the final seven plagues just before the return of Christ.
