One of the things we must always remember to do is to distinguish what baptism means objectively—apart from any sincerity or insincerity on the part of those administering, receiving, or observing it. And what baptism means is union with Christ. Those who are baptized into Christ are baptized into His death (Rom. 6:3). If you are baptized into Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to promise (Gal. 3:27). But we object, saying that some people’s lives don’t line up with this. Their lives don’t mean what their baptism means. But whose problem is that? Let God be true and every man a liar. The baptized infidel creates the problem, so let him answer for it. The grace of God simply means what it means.
