Dealing with the formulaic approach to water baptism has been the bane of the church world. It has caused sincere, committed believers in Christ to lose sight of how critical this foundation is to their being able to "go on beyond" into the realms that await.

Today we continue with the theme we began last week. It is critical for all of us as believers, if we are to be a part of that called-out company we know as the Bride of Christ, then going on beyond the fundamental foundations of Jesus Christ is an absolute necessity.
The Son has risen on a new era. Strange way to put it, I know, but as the age in which we live comes to a close, society has become so dark and perverted that the previous generation would hardly recognize things.
