Here is another short article on baptism. This one is by Justin Taylor and what he says reflects my view. In the article Taylor defends baptizing young children who have made a profession of faith. Actually, a greater concern of mine is the urging of young children to make a decision before they really understand what it is all about. The article is also valuable because at the beginning of it Taylor defends credobaptism.

In a sense we at Bowman are somewhat isolated from the trials that most congregations today experience. That is, currently we don’t have to deal with cell phones ringing during our services. This is perhaps the one advantage of being so far removed from civilization. That said, here is a piece dealing with the issue of device distraction. Even though phones don’t ring during our services, people do use their devices. BTW, I love the verse the writer uses to write about devices: Psalms 81:12 “So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts to follow their own devices.”

Easter Sunday is a lie. This is a great reminder that we ought the sing “The Easter Song” more often.
