    He that committeth sin is of the devil. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested that He might destroy the works of the devil. 1 John 3:8. Whosoever sinneth not is born of God. For His seed remaineth in Him and he cannot sin because he is born of God. Verse 9.
  • Laymen. William Wright
    According to Romans 6:23 it states clearly that sin will bring you death and this is obviously a permanent death in Hell in the burning furance. Of course, this is the act of Christ, if you do not confess, repent and seek forgiveness of your sins. But through His love, grace and mercy, he will forget all of your trepasses. My suggestion to those who are lost, find Him soon, before it's too late.
  • Brian
    It doesn't have anything to do with the nails or cross. However it does symbolize death and resurrection. More importantly baptism is just that. Being baptized a key part in steps to return to live with God again. Christ was baptized not to wash away sins but to fulfill all righteousness as stated in Mathew 3:15. In Mark it talks about being baptized of water and the holy ghost both are needed.
