Wrong number

When Susan was seven, she wanted to call a friend. I gave her the number but got the last two digits wrong.

I told my son Monte, “Well, it was close enough. It shouldn’t make any difference, should it?”

In His word God tells us to be baptized (Acts 2:38; 22:16). Does it matter how?

The dictionary says baptize means “to immerse in water or sprinkle or pour water on…” http://www.dictionary.com/browse/baptize?s=t/.

Does the dictionary settle it?

The Greek word for baptize (baptizō) means immerse. Greek words for “sprinkle” and “pour” are not used for baptism.

New Testament baptism is clearly immersion (Mark 1:9-10; Acts 8:38-39; John 3:23).

In baptism we are buried and raised with Christ (Romans 6:3-5; Colossians 2:12-13).

If you’ve not been immersed, have you been buried and raised with Christ?
