In another post Free at Last stated: "Refusing to be baptized gives evidence they are not saved" So you agree? If you do, aren't you equating works with salvation? If a person refuses baptism - it could be a reason or an excuse (there is a difference) We need to find out why a person is refusing, reluctant, relocating or any or "r" First and foremost a person should full understand why he is being baptized. Too often gets saved Sun am and dunked that night - without fully realizing what he did. Yes, I realize the Ethiopian asked to be baptized immediately - but I am confident he fully understood the meaning.
