Baptism for men

Baptism is Christianity’s most physical sacrament. It’s a whole-body reminder that our old self has died with Christ, and that a new creation has been born. (I Cor. 5:17).

I’ve been thinking of ways to enhance this experience for men, while staying true to scripture. And I’ve got an idea. I call it tap-out baptism, and it allows the candidate to play a more active role. Here’s how it would work.

Communion for Men

A couple of years ago, my church, out of convenience, began supplying the congregation with prefilled communion cups with a wafer attached to the top. I’m not much of a traditionalist; however, these sterile elements really bothered me. I struggled to know why. The bread and cup are just symbols, so quality shouldn’t matter, should it?
