Amazing Grace? Indeed. Amazing.
Check out this video and then tell me how the theology of the guy doin' the baptizing could possibly change what happened there, in that pool, to the gentleman who was baptized.
A couple months ago, Hank and Eva Johnson joined our church. As you can see, Hank requires a walker to get around, and even then, with difficulty. So, when Hank wanted to be baptized, Brother Mike simply said let's get ourselves up to the YMCA and git'er done.
So they did.
Please pay particular attention to Hank's expression after his immersion, and then look back into your memory at the last few baptisms you witnessed, and then tell me when there's ever been one more meaningful. And more in obedience to the biblical commands. And more evidential that there's more to baptism than just getting wet, or how much of us gets wet.
I fear many baptisms for church membership may fall far short of what they could be, if they're supposed to be real spiritual experiences.
Peg and I both cried when we watched this.
Bet you did, too.
