Did You…When You Believed?

I am posting this a second time in order to get it to show a notification on my facebook page. My blog connection to Facebook has apparently not been working since the end of May. My apologies for any annoyance to those who’ve already seen it.

Last night three personal Bible study students realized that baptism in Jesus name is the point in time in which a person receives forgiveness of their sins and is saved (Mark 16:15,16, Acts 2:36-41,47, 22:16, Galatians 3:26,27, 1 Peter 3:21).

Previously they had believed that forgiveness and salvation came before baptism and that baptism was only a testimony of already being saved. An immersion/baptism they had all participated in.

Now they stand at the crossroads of decision. Do they get rebaptized in order to be baptized for the biblical purpose of forgiveness of sins or do they claim their previous baptism, only changing  their belief about the purpose of baptism and teach it hence forth. Could it be correct to believe that if one is baptized with an unbiblical understanding of its purpose, but in Jesus name, that God would overlook that and impute the salvation of biblical baptism anyway.
