Elementary Truths (Part 4.1)

Further Instruction (but still elementary)

About Baptisms

a.  It’s plural because it involves two spheres — the physical and the spiritual (Rom. 6:1-4).

b.  The Gospel is not just about Christ dying for our sins (Rom. 5:6-7); it’s also about us, dying with Christ (Rom. 6:5-14).

c.  Our death in Christ sets us free from (or we die to) three powerful spiritual forces:

  • The power of sin (Rom. 6:15-23)
  • The power of the Law (Rom. 7:1-6)
  • The power of the flesh (Rom. 7:7-24)

d.  Consequently we no longer belong to…

  • Satan (Eph. 2:1-3)
  • The world (Gal. 6:14)
