PORIRUA, NEW ZEALAND (BNC)—Missionary Lance Mosher released a video June 27 about why John baptized. He went on to explain the various baptisms in the New Testament and which is the one baptism of Ephesians 4. It’s well explained and presented.

He shows from Colossians that baptism is a work. It expresses “faith in the working of God.”

Lance’s website, TopicalBibleStudies,com, contains other videos and teaching material, as well as his story, now published by World Video Bible School, on how he came to Christ.

Randal and his wife Vicki have lived and worked in Brazil since Nov. 1984. They have three children, two daughters-in-law, and four grandchildren. He likes to read novels in his back-porch hammock. http://randal.us

  1. As good as this video is, I would like to share it. One statement, however, troubles me. He states that sins were forgiven, under the law, through the sacrifice of animals. I listened to it again to be sure that I heard it correctly. Sure enough I heard it correctly. I can’t share this and mislead others. There was no forgiveness by the shedding of animal blood.

    1. You are right. As the writer says in Hebrews 10:3-4, “But in those sacrifices there is a reminder of sins every year. For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and goats could take away sins.” “By that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.” (Hebrews 10:10).
