Crispus Cremus Questions

Acts 18:8

The Baby Question.

“Therefore go and make disciples of

nations, baptizing them in the name

of the Father and of the Son and of

the Holy Spirit” (Mt. 28:19).

    Should we baptize infants or is it more appropriate to baptize
    those who are mature enough to make their own willful faith decision?

The Clorox Question.

    Isn’t baptism like spiritual Clorox? Isn’t baptism what washes your sin away?

“For it is by grace you have been saved,

through faith—and this not from yourselves,

it is the gift of God—not by works, so that

no one can boast” (Eph. 2:8-9).

The Attorney Question.

“Then he said, ‘Jesus, remember

me when you come into your

kingdom.’ Jesus answered him,

‘I tell you the truth, today you

will be with me in paradise”

(Luke 23:42-43).

    “Technically speaking, Bro. Billy, I mean, do you really
    have to be baptized to be a Christian?”

The H20 Question.

    The H2O question asks, “How should I be baptized?
    Should I be sprinkled, poured, or be immersed?”

“Then Philip began…and told

him the good news about Jesus.

…they came to some water and

Eunuch said, ‘Look, here is water.

Why shouldn’t I be baptized?’

And he gave orders to stop the

chariot. Then both Philip and the

eunuch went down into the water

and Philip baptized him”

(Acts 8:35-38).

The Mechanics Question.

    The mechanics question simply
    asks, “How do you do it?”

Conclusion

“Those who accepted his message

were baptized, and about three

thousand were added to their

number that day” (Acts 2:41).

“…having been buried with him

in baptism and raised with him

through your faith in the power

of God, who raised him from the

dead” (Col. 2:12).
