Thank you for your thoughtful comments. I have often wondered why we spend so much time and energy over our disagreements over baptism. Perhaps the real issue is that, for some reason, we find a need to exclude folks {Miroslav Volf, Exclusion or Embrace.} And you tap on the door of that larger issue of our continuing issue of exclusion of others who are fellow followers of Jesus. How is it that excluding people around differences in answering a question that Scripture does not address is far more important that our own ignoring of our breaking of clear admonitions of Scripture? "Judge not that you won't be judged." Thank you for making your thoughts available to readers.
