Think that accusation is too harsh? I quote:
“candidates must have been baptized in SBC-affiliated churches or have received believer’s baptism by immersion in another denomination or non-denominational church. If the candidate received baptism in another tradition, it must be viewed as symbolic rather than sacramental or regenerative. Also, the church or denomination in which the baptism took place must adhere to the doctrine of the “security of the believer,” or the belief that one cannot lose one’s salvation.”
From abpnews.com/700.article (see the bottom paragraph)
In other words, for the Baptism to be valid (at least for missionaries) it must be performed by a Baptist (or one who basically is a Baptist in theology) The theology of the minister apparently can invalidate the power of God through the sacrament, didn’t know ministers could over-ride the will of God like that, silly me…Seems you would never know if it was valid or not, what if the minister secretly didn’t believe in eternal security, or maybe thought it was sacramental, are Baptists going to start re-baptizing themselves until they know for sure?
