1. Who is the Father?
The Father is the first person of the
Trinitarian God. His role in salvation is the one rejected by mankind's sin and rebellion.
I do not believe in Baptismal Regeneration, that term was for anabaptist who argued pedobaptist needed to baptized again. What people are really trying to accuse me of being is a "Water Regenerationist" because they think, I believe, the power is in the water.
I always hear this question, "What about the thief on the cross? He was not baptized." This is posed as the ultimate gotcha, like I'v never considered it before. Actually the retort is very simple: the thief died in the OT under law, not the NT conditions.
