1. Baptism must be for the dead. The unbaptized dead outnumber the living 1000-to-1. Baptism would be a pretty pitiful way of saving souls if it could only work for the living.
    When people can’t grasp the necessity of baptism while living…can we hope to convince them that it is necessary for the dead?

  2. Great point! Does traditional orthodox Christianity teach that any were baptized before Christ? No. I suppose they are all lost then, without a mode or hope of salvation. This is their mindset. Either that or they believe that baptism isn’t necessary after all for salvation, even in light of scriptures like Mark 16:16. To many, baptism is only a manifestation of salvation, not a saving gospel ordinance.
