Christian Church Baptism

Lester Weaver, Hot Springs, Arkansas

Let's Face The Facts!

In recent years some brethren have sought in first one way and then another to justify their friends who are guilty of participating in the errors of the Christian Church. Sometimes these brethren say that Christian Church baptism is alright. The truth, however, is not as lenient as some brethren. Let's face the facts!

For one's baptism to be alright it must be the "one" baptism. (Eph. 4:5)

If Christian Church baptism is the one baptism then the Bible is not true. For the Bible teaches the one baptism puts all who receive it into one and the same body.

(I Cor. 12:13,20; Eph. 3:6)

If Christian Church baptism is not the one baptism then all the members thereof are lost being out of Christ. For salvation is in Christ and only the one baptism puts us into Him. (Eph. 1:3; II Tim. 2:10; Gal. 3:27)

Christian Church baptism either is the one baptism or it is not.

Therefore, either the Bible is not true or all members of the Christian Church are lost.

Yes, at all times we must face the facts. "For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds."

(II Jno. 11)
