Ep.444: Does God Predetermine Who Gets Baptized?
Understanding Predestination and Baptism
Theme Scripture: Matthew 3:11
Baptism. It is a sacred Christian symbol. Its meaning will vary depending on one's denomination, but in all cases it holds a very sacred place in the lives of believers. There are many questions that can be raised regarding this symbol. Who should be baptized? Is it necessary for salvation? Is baptism merely a symbol or more than that? Now, built upon the base of baptism, is another question: Does God know or predestinate who will be His chosen ones? If so, then why baptize? Might we be baptizing the wrong people - people who actually have not been chosen and therefore giving them false hope? On this podcast we look at baptism in the context of predestination.
