How does Baptism deliver from death?

Share |

Baptism delivers us from death because it takes away the sting of death, which is sin, and unites us with Christ Jesus. Thus, temporal death cannot harm baptized, believing Christians, and eternal death or damnation has no power over them, but they are in Christ, live with Him and Christ lives in them. Temporal death is the gate to eternal life for Christians.

1 Cor. 15:55-57: O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the Law. But thanks be to God, Which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Rom. 8:1: There is therefore now no more condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus.
