Why talk to yourself? You can talk to God anytime, all the time.
Wisdom is listening to discern what people mean, rather than what they say.
“This baptism … as appointed for all nations bestowed the remission of sins. A refusal of baptism would be a repudiation of Christ and of all the gifts contained in His name. Baptism is pure gospel that conveys grace and salvation from God through Christ. It dare not be changed into a legal requirement. This preposition (eis) connects remission so closely with baptism that nobody has yet been able to separate the two.” —Lenski (Lutheran), h/t Jan Towell
For whom is Jesus the source of eternal salvation? This question must be answered clearly today, for modern religious answers avoid the Scripture’s affirmation. (They are committed to a human perspective.) “… he became the source of eternal salvation for all those who obey him” Hebrews 5.9.
