A couple of these excuses, I’ve actually heard people use for opting out of going to worship at church. One thing is for certain, Satan is real and working hard to convince people that washing isn’t needed. Jesus said, “…whoever believes and is baptized will be saved…” (Mark 16:16). However, it is the Devil that wants us to believe a lie and convince us that baptism isn’t really a necessity. Read Acts 22:16 and think again!
