5-14-2015 Who Is A “Christian?” #3

Then Barnabas departed for Tarsus to seek Saul. And when he had found him, he brought him to Antioch. So it was that for a whole year they assembled with the church and taught a great many people. And the disciples were first called Christians in Antioch” (Acts 11:25-26 NKJV).

Saul became the Apostle Paul who wrote, “Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death?” (Romans 6:3-4 NKJV). Since baptism entered the death of Christ Jesus, Paul did not believe he had been saved by prayer before he was baptized or that baptism began his “newness of life.” He believed as he was told, that in baptism, his sins were washed away (Acts 22:16). Paul was a “Christian,” are you?
