It began with water baptism, for which I was unceremoniously UNfriended by some "devout" Baptists on Facebook, who first attempted to show me the error of my ways, of course! Now, it seems, I am after the Baptists, for I am appalled that they parrot that man is saved by faith alone, nevertheless, water baptism IS A MUST!
NO IT IS NOT! I am still listening to this series, and am hoping that Bryan Denlinger touches on this. Even if he does not, such is NOT scriptural. Water baptism was preached by Jesus and the apostles DURING HIS LIFETIME, and was meant for the Jews, the purpose for which Christ came to earth.
It was ONLY after his death, burial and resurrection that Christ sought to give Paul the gospel of grace, to us ward!
WE MUST DIVIDE THE WORD OF GOD, PROPERLY!
3 But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?
4 For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.
5 But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me;
6 And honour not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.
Matthew 15:L1-6 (King James Bible)

Ha! It seems this three-part installment is just the beginning! Good!
And now I say unto you,
Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this
work be of men, it will come to nought:
