Mar_1:4 John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins. Luk_3:3 And he came into all the country about Jordan, preaching the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins; Act_2:38 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. I have a sister who goes to a church of Christ, and we often but heads on the doctrine of salvation. I have trouble with the above verses. I have looked into the Greek behind the word for in the above verses and it the word Eis inplies foward motion towards something. Would this not teach that Baptism is the point of salvation? How do we reconcile this with passages like Ephesians 2:8-9, Titus 3:5, and Rom 3:28?
