Hebrews 6: 1 – 2
Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.
I could ask also ask the question as: What does it mean to get converted to follow Christ? This is the theme throughout this section of the book, but do we really know what it means? Do I have to get baptized? I think just about every person and every religious grouping has his or her own meaning for this principle. But who is right?
As I said earlier, this is the subject that is central to this book. Why? I think the main reason is that because repentance and conversion is the one subject the church is trying to avoid. The church would rather preach messages of grace and love, but not about the first principle as mentioned in Hebrews. When someone does touch on the subject, it is a watered down version, as the preacher really does not want to upset you by saying that there is something wrong with you. No, you were born perfect. The Lord made you that way. No, all you have to do is say this little prayer and all is well.
This is the message I hear day after day from so many religious groupings. No, you do not have to change at all. All you have to do is bring your children to church and have them baptized and they are part of God’s Kingdom. Someone might try and convince you that infant baptism doesn’t work, and that children have to decide for themselves to be baptised. As long as they have done this, they are all right. As long as you are baptized, that is what counts. That is why the roman church allowed infants to be baptized, as they were saved after baptism. The same applies to the dead being baptized by the same church, as you will still be saved. These are just some of the viewpoints.
