                      Conclusion To This Section

When all men's arguments fall, the Bible's teaching on this subject
is still the same.  Ac 2:38 still teaches baptism is for the
remission of sins:

                 38  Then Peter said unto them,
                 Repent, and be baptized every one of
                 you in the name of Jesus Christ for
                 the remission of sins, and ye shall
                 receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Ac 22:16 still teaches baptism washes away sins:

                 16  And now why tarriest thou?
                 arise, and be baptized, and wash away
                 thy sins, calling on the name of the

Mk 16:16 still teaches:

                 16  He that believeth and is
                 baptized shall be saved; but he that
                 believeth not shall be damned.

1 Co 12:13 still teaches that baptism puts us into the body of 

                 13  For by one Spirit are we all
                 baptized into one body, whether [we
                 be] Jews or Gentiles, whether [we be]
                 bond or free; and have been all made
                 to drink into one Spirit.

Ga 3:27 still teaches baptism puts us into Christ:

                 27  For as many of you as have been
                 baptized into Christ have put on

Ro 6:3-4 still teaches baptism puts us into the death of Christ:

                 3  Know ye not, that so many of us
                 as were baptized into Jesus Christ
                 were baptized into his death?
                 4  Therefore we are buried with him
                 by baptism into death: that like as
                 Christ was raised up from the dead by
                 the glory of the Father, even so we
                 also should walk in newness of life.

Co 2:12-13 still teaches that through baptism we obtain the newness 
of life:

                 12  Buried with him in baptism,
                 wherein also ye are risen with [him]
                 through the faith of the operation of
                 God, who hath raised him from the
                 13  And you, being dead in your
                 sins and the uncircumcision of your
                 flesh, hath he quickened together
                 with him, having forgiven you all

1 Pe 3:21 still teaches that baptism saves us:

                 21  The like figure whereunto
                 [even] baptism doth also now save us
                 (not the putting away of the filth of
                 the flesh, but the answer of a good
                 conscience toward God,) by the
                 resurrection of Jesus Christ:

The first time the gospel was preached, "They then that received his
word were baptized," (Ac 2:41).  People today who receive the gospel
do the same thing.  Friend, if you believe in Jesus Christ, and have
repented, i.e., determined that you will live according to His teaching,
won't you confess His name before men and be baptized for the reasons HE
said while you have opportunity?
