    !Cor 15:29 Else what shall they do which are baptized for the dead. if the dead rise not at all? Why are they then baptized for the dead?

    I thought there was a thread on this but cant find it. Can someone point it out to me or add their thoughts or opinions? Its got me stumped. :( Thanks,
    Rob

    I do not believe this describes any sort of proxy baptism. I believe this is a rhetorical way of saying our baptism is meaningless if we are baptized for a dead Christ. Above in vs 16 he said that if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised.
