I nearly asked my question in Glen's thread, but I feared leading it astray from his intention. Here is what happened. I expressed my concern to my husband's Nazarene pastor, because he will use whatever baptismal mode seems convenient for himself and the candidate. I said that the word baptizo was created by translators, instead of its direct translation, immerse, in order to appease. He responded, "You think so? Where did you take Greek?" "A Baptist school." He laughed. "That is why you think that." Okay. That is the only Greek language training I have had. It was aeons ago, and I have forgotten 95% of it. Can you help me with this? What solid proofs would you use to convince either him or me?
