The origins of the Christian practice of baptism are not fully understood, but apparently the Pharisees took offense at rumors of Christ baptizing followers. Much of the reason for their offense may have been because the religious leaders and temple workers of Jesus' day considered a very similar rite to be their exclusive privilege — the rite of priestly cleansing.

My prayer life was in a lukewarm state. I really didn’t understand Christ-focused prayers. Every time I prayed, I would always bring my requests to God and ask Him to fix the problems I presented. The list was always endless with demands that I wanted God to do. I was praying for worthwhile things but in the wrong...

When we compare the early church with the present-day church, we observe that the early church must have been predominantly made up of spiritual people.

But we have a deficiency of…

Throughout history God has chosen individuals who lived simple lives, often in poverty, to do great things for Him. These men walked with God, yet the weight of responsibility rested upon them. They felt the greatness of the task before them. There was no self-confidence. Only self-distrust.

There are gangsters in my neighborhood. Before you get concerned for my safety, these are harmless to humans and are rarely covert in their operations.
