This thinking comes after a conversation with Rev. D. Bray and some interesting life experiences.
Relationship with Jesus, right?
Salvation it seems is saying yes to the light (knowledge of God) that we have been exposed to. Does prevenient grace cover the "what if's"? We have packaged salvation too much in America. It is more journey and relationshiplike than we have made it out to be. This being true, it makes baptism make a whole lot more sense.
