I don''t understand the reference to Mormon baptism on behalf of the dead. That doctrine is heretical and has no place in an orthodox Christian discussion of baptism. Is the author of this sermon Mormon, because they are labeled as "Baptist" in their bio?
@ John Murphy Your right no where in Scripture is it called a symbol, or an outward sign of an inward change. But please note when I said, "an outward sign of an inward change" it was part of the question not the answer. "What does the Word of God teach about baptism, which is an outward sign of an inward change in someone?s life?" Thank you.
??? I find none of the scriptural references that John has suggested to baptism.
No where is baptism called an outward sign of an inward change. It is not called a symbol. it is called the place from where we are buried with Christ, raised to new life and clothed with Christ. From no other place are we told this takes place.
A Powerful message that reveals modern day lessons. Thank you for a relevent and relational appreach to God''s greater miracles in our lives.
I also found this outline very helpful but the rat illustration could leave the feeling like my life ends up in death by drowning.
Wonderful Sermons!!! Very annointed! Would love to see more.
I enjoyed this sermon very much. I am a huge fan of Elijah and I find it to be very encouraging that this mighty man of God faced the same challenges as do we.
