  1. Arguments Against Baptism… Introduction: “Baptism” and “baptize” with reference to water and Jesus are used about 22 times in the New Testament. Hence, baptism is a New Testament subject. Baptism is part of the Great Commission.

  2. Arguments Against Baptism… “18: And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19: Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20:” (Matt. 28).

  3. Arguments Against Baptism… “15: And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. 16: He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned” (Mark 16).

  4. Arguments Against Baptism… “46: And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: 47: And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem” (Luke 24, cp. Acts 2: 38).

  5. Arguments Against Baptism… The baptism that we are considering involves water (Acts 8: 36).

  6. Arguments Against Baptism… Baptism not for babies and is not pouring/sprinkling (Mark 16: 15, 16, Col. 2: 12).

  7. Arguments Against Baptism… “To teach water baptism as involved in salvation is to teach baptism regeneration” (see Titus 3: 5).

  8. Arguments Against Baptism… “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost.”

  9. Arguments Against Baptism… “Baptism is just a symbol of the new birth; hence, to teach essentiality is to make a symbol necessary” (cp. Rom. 6).

  10. Arguments Against Baptism… “ Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection.”

  11. Arguments Against Baptism… “To make water baptism necessary is to teach water salvation” (cp. I Peter 3: 21).

  12. Arguments Against Baptism… “ Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water. The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ.”

  13. Arguments Against Baptism… “To suggest baptism remits sin is to deny the blood of Jesus” (Matt. 26: 28, cp. Acts 2: 38).

  14. Arguments Against Baptism… “Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.”

  15. Arguments Against Baptism… “By including water baptism, you are teaching salvation by works” (Tit. 3: 5, cp. Tit. 3: 5).

  16. Arguments Against Baptism… “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost.”

  17. Arguments Against Baptism… “One lacks love and compassion who teaches baptism is necessary to salvation” (John 3: 16).

  18. Arguments Against Baptism… “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

  19. Arguments Against Baptism… “Baptism cannot be presented as essential because such would result in unfairness” (I Pet. 3: 9).

  20. Arguments Against Baptism… “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”

  21. Arguments Against Baptism… Conclusion: Much of the same rationale used to exclude baptism can also be used to eliminate belief, repentance, and confession. We need to accept simply what is taught in the scriptures and gladly act upon it (Acts 2: 41).
