Saved by Faith, not by Water, Baptism is an outward demonstration of an inward work! Anyone who teaches otherwise is a heretic.
(18) because Christ also once for all died for sins, the innocent One for the guilty many, in order to bring us to God. He was put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit,
(19) in which He also went and proclaimed His Message to the spirits that were in prison,
(20) who in ancient times had been disobedient, while God's longsuffering was patiently waiting in the days of Noah during the building of the Ark, in which a few persons--eight in number--were brought safely through the water.
(21) And, corresponding to that figure, the water of baptism now saves you--not the washing off of material defilement, but the craving of a good conscience after God--through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,
(22) who is at God's right hand, having gone into Heaven, angels and authorities and powers having been made subject to Him. 1 Peter 3:18-22 WNT
There was and is definitely no physical water in the bosom of Abraham or the abode of the dead. They would have to been resurrected to be baptized in water in order to be saved, not to mention the thief on the cross, Ephesians 2:10, Romans 10:13.
Scripture twisters abound in these last days to draw men unto themselves and away from the true gospel. Don’t be deceived by these messengers of the devil in sheep’s clothing.

Anna: The Prayer request section has been moved. It is no longer included with the Praise section. I've been wanting to do that for a long time. I'm such a procrastinator. It's why we can't have nice things.
