Article by Mark Horne: PCANews

I stumbled across this article this morning by mark Horne a teaching Elder in the Denomination to which I belong. It seemed like a nice compliment to the previous entry on "Improving our Baptism" In it he says:

We are to look at baptism as God’s transplantation of a person from the world into the Church . . . baptism seals to us blessings that we have not yet experience . . . the future we anticipate begins at baptism, a beginning which each of us is to “improve” upon. Our confession nowhere tells us to “improve” our birth in a Christian home. Nor does it tell us . . . to improve on our conversion at Bible Camp. It tells us to improve on our baptisms . . . Is this how we preach and teach? Is this what we expect to hear when we ask for Christian testimonies? If not, perhaps we need to figure out why there is such a discrepancy
