11:30 - Michael Sullivan - The "One" New Covenant Baptism of the SpiritIt is crucial to understand what OT passages predicted New Covenant baptism and how they and the NT writers said they would be fulfilled. Paul knew of only "one baptism" (Ephs. 4:4-5/1 Cor. 12:13) and it was performed w/out hands and in the passive voice. What are the implications of this view to the Church of Christ denomination - which teaches a physical covenant / ritual justification "gospel"?
