Warnings of sinfulness

Posted by: Hammer / 11:25 AM

Sure didn't take long to find a good example of why the government shouldn't be in the business of telling people what's sinful. Seems Patrick Henry College has fired a clerk for believing that baptism was necessary for salvation. Seems to me from my confirmation days, that whoever confesses with his lips that Jesus is Lord and believes in his heart that God raised him from the dead shall be saved. Patrick Henry College seems to make its employees take a vow of belief along those lines. Trouble is, one of their clerks had the wacky notion that faith was not enough -- that one has to be baptized as well.

So, Spitball Zell: should we put a sign on every river urging everyone to be baptized or risk damnation? Or if faith enough? Then tell me why we want the government making that decision.
