As I discussed in the introductory post for this series, I originally began this series of articles as a means of addressing disagreements I have with Jeremy Myers' conclusions on baptism, which can be found at redeeminggod.com/give-up-your-rites/

This post was written specifically to share on Jeremy's site message board in hopes of sharing what I strongly believe to be the truth on baptism with him and his readers.

While I disagree with many of Jeremy’s conclusions on the subject of baptism, I aim to disagree respectfully.

I'm interested solely in obeying and teaching what I understand to be the truth and saving souls.

I am disinterested in fruitless arguing.

Jeremy's perspective about baptism

Over the past several months prior to writing this, I read every post and comment in Jeremy's series on baptism, beginning with "Is Church Possible without Baptism and Communion?" (2/13/2012) and ending with "Rebaptizing Baptism" (3/14/2012).

In an effort to ensure fairness and accuracy, here is my understanding of Jeremy's view on baptism:

My perspective on baptism

I agreed with only about 10-20% of what Jeremy had to say on the subject.

I believe his conclusions are largely a house built upon sand.

For a thorough understanding of my view on baptism, I invite you to read my series on the subject in order, as each post builds upon the previous.

Here is a brief summary of my understanding:

Please take time to study this subject (with your Bible and prayer alone).

If I understand baptism's importance correctly, then many believers are in great danger.
