    Water Baptism and Romans 9:16

    From the following passage we can understand that submitting to the rite of water baptism plays no part in a person's salvation:

    "For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy" (Ro.9:15-16).

    When anyone submits to the rite of water baptism his "will" is involved and Paul says that "it is not of him who willeth." So submitting to the rite of water baptism plays no part in anyone's salvation. When the first century believers submitted to the rite of water baptism their being "born of God" had nothing to do with any of their "wills":

    "He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the children of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God"
    (Jn.1:11-13).

    It is impossible for anyone to submit to the rite of water baptism apart from his will.

    The apostle Paul says that there is ONE baptism for the body of Christ ... and it's NOT water.

    This the ONE baptism for the body of Christ:

    1Co 12:13 KJV For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.

    So simple and yet so rejected by most.

    What then do you think of those that participate in water baptism after salvation? Did they miss the message and somehow rob Christ of His finished work? Baptist churches and the majority of other churches will not fully accept members until they are water baptized.

    I think that they are confused and have bought some of the myths of Churchianity.

    If they believe that the water ceremony in any way contributes to their salvation.

    I was in a baptist church for many years and prior pentecostal. I was water baptized and lucky me I was circumcised shortly after birth . Thank God for His written word, I am now free from indoctrination by rites. I saw so many practices robbing Christ. The biggy, most of my family are pentecostal..it's a lonely life because it's hard for me to shut my mouth when the subject of salvation is on the table. The ritual of water baptism should never be practiced least the rite gives even one the wrong idea.

    Some see baptism as symbolic to dying to sin and arising saved/cleansed from sin. An outward exercise, but must be truly felt in the heart to have any true meaning..

    "John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. People went out to him from all of Jerusalem and the countryside of Judea. Confessing their sins, they were baptized by him in the Jordan River.…"(Mark 1:4-5).

    Right division solves this problem.

    The symbolism was invented due to lack of understanding.

    Hi and here is my answer to the above !!

    Rom 9:16 has NOTING to do with WATER BAPTISM !!

    In Heb 6:1 and 2 , we do have answer for today concerning WATER BAPTISM !!

    The first verse says LEAVING and are to FORSAKE the doctrine , FORSAKE the teachings of Repentance , and of Faith toward God !!

    In verse 2 FORSAKE the teachings of BAPTISMS / BAPTISMOS , the Resurrction of the DEAD , and of Eternal Judgment !!


    There are still many the refuse to believe Hebrews !!

    Dan, Romans 9:16 is saying that a person's salvation happens apart from a person's will. And that means that submitting to the rite of water baptism plays no part in anyone's salvation. In fact, when water baptism was in order a person had to believe before they could be baptized with water:

    "And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized? And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God" (Acts 8:36-37).

    Before the eunuch was baptized with water he was already "born of God" because he believed that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God:

    "Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God..For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?"
    (1 Jn.5:1,4-5).

    There can be no doubt that the eunuch received eternal life and was "born of God" before he was baptized with water so we can know that being baptized with water did not contribute in any way to anyone being saved when water baptism was in order.

    Of course during the present dispensation there is only "one baptism" and that baptism is not with water but instead the baptism performed by One Spirit Who baptizes believers into the Body of Christ (1 Cor.12:13).

    And I agree that there is ONLY ONE BAPTISMA / BAPTIZER as Paul wrote in Eph 4:5 !!
