Some teach baptism is not necessary for salvation. If this is the case, why did none of the converts eat, drink, or sleep before being baptized?
In Acts 2, 3000 were baptized "that day". Wouldn't it have been more convenient to schedule them over a number of days. Saul had not eaten for three days, but he was baptized before he took food. (Acts 9:9 & 18-19) Surely he was hungry. The jailer was baptized about midnight. (Acts 16:25 & 33) Surely it would have been more convenient to wait until daylight. The eunuch stopped in the middle of a journey. (Acts 8:36-39) He didn't wait till he got home or until his friends or family could watch. If baptism is not necessary, why do all of these examples seem to indicate there was a urgency to obey that command immediately?12 AnswersReligion & Spirituality8 months ago
I am a Christian, but I have my opinion as to what the strongest argument might be that would hinder an atheist from becoming a believer, but I was wanting some input from others. Please keep this civil and please don't give a flood of different arguments. Just give what you think is the ONE most compelling argument. (For example, if you think it is an alleged contradiction in the scriptures, just give the ONE that you feel is the MOST compelling.) Actually, as a Christian, I have never heard an argument against Christianity that couldn't be answered and that hasn't been answered many times in the past, but perhaps you have one I haven't heard before. Again, let's don't argue! I'm just wondering what prevents others from believing. (Also please identify if you are a Christian, atheist, agnostic, Jew, or other religious persuasion.)75 AnswersReligion & Spirituality1 year ago
At work we got some names of kids in need to buy Christmas presents for. One kid asked for a "Nabi 7", but we are having trouble finding one at a good price. What are other alternatives?2 AnswersOther - Computers3 years ago
