Happy New Year!

The new year starts today. Now, I will worry about the recurring "big" problems for this year. These essays are my opinion, and no one else, regarding these topics. This list includes:

  1. The Olympics, which will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This is one of the few times that the Olympics has been held south of the equator.
  2. Presidential politics. Until now, I have avoided listening to the self-aggrandizing buffoons who are leading the charge this cycle.
  3. Terrorism - In the United States, we have been fighting terrorism since long before the Declaration of Independence was signed. The only thing that has changed is the people perpetrating it.
  4. Government overreach. Again, this is an old problem going back to the 1760s with the Stamp Act and the Intolerable Acts. Back then, it was the British Crown. Today, we do it to ourselves.
  5. Intolerance - We were founded upon the idea of freedom - freedom of religion, of expression, of ideas. But we were not tolerant of others, as witnessed by religions, ethnic and racial discrimination, the various "witch hunts" and now, the stifling "political correctness" which generates new "code words" and "code phrases" for old, often painful concepts and overlays the older uses of these words, warping how our children see history.
  6. The question of what do we want from our government at various levels - municipal, county, state and federal? Or, has this question become just another political correctness "code phrase?"

CAN YOU BE BURIED UNDER A SPRINKLING? BY STEVE FINNELL

There are many who claim that water baptism constitutes being sprinkled with water. Can you be buried under a sprinkling? Are immersion and sprinkling synonymous?

Romans 6:3-4 Or. do you not know that as many as were immersed into Christ Jesus were immersed into his death? 4 We were, therefore, buried with him by immersion into death; that as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, thus we also should walk in newness of life.(The Better Version of The New Testament by Chester Estes)

Yes, water baptism is essential in order to be saved.

Mark 16:16 "He who believes and is baptized will be saved...(NKJV)

Not only has the church of Christ, [the body of Christ] been buried with Christ in baptism, but Christ sanctified, and cleansed His church with the washing of water. Ephesians 5:25-27.

Yes, men have to believe in Jesus and be baptized in water to be saved.
