John Stott writes, "To be sure, the New Testament speaks of baptism in terms of our washing away our sins, but these are examples of dynamic language which attributes to the visible sign the blessing of the reality signified. It is inconceivable that the apostle Paul, having spent three chapters arguing that justification is by faith alone, should now contradict himself, and declare after all that salvation is by baptism. No, we must give the apostle credit for consistency of thought. The baptized’s faith is, of course, taken for granted, not forgotten or denied"
