Of all the stumbling blocks that confuse men regarding the way of salvation, baptism is near the top of the list.
It is difficult to find a religious denomination that does not teach some form of baptismal regeneration. Or to put it another way, salvation that is linked, in some way, to the practice of water baptism. Regardless of whether one is sprinkled with water or immersed beneath it, it is popularly taught that this ritual is a major component of salvation.
The problem for all these groups is that the Bible doesn’t actual teach this.
Baptism has no relationship to salvation.
Nor does it have any effectiveness to cleanse from sin.
