Having said that, I haven't studied this issue out completely, so I must go into Berean mode on this one, but I'll get back to you.
No multiple meanings based on context here ...

Elder Blume ... hit this on the nose ....

It's a myth and you lose credibility keeping this notion.

You either decide to

1. accept forgiveness/remission happen at repentance
2. accept that forgiveness happens when one repents + is baptized

or

3. accept the first concept #1 and keep baptism as part of your baptismal regenerational model but not to cause forgiveness/remission of sin (as Elder Blume has).

Study it. Of course, doing so would be admitting believing a myth.

holiness is a state

sanctification is a process


thats a much more fun debate than repentence and remittance (welcome to AFF btw, please stay and debate... you may become a convert to grace along the way)
I agree 100% about Holiness. I've been a convert to Grace for some time now. Real Grace. Not greasy grace.

Acts 22:16
And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord.

Hmmm ... are you in Berean mode or defend your institution mode?

Your 7-8 proof texts for baptismal regeneration have been amply refuted by many for generations and here also.

If you are going to quote scripture ... we all got a bible ... E.D.

If you have a point .... step up to the plate ... and watch for commas.

In Greek, the words mean the same thing, no matter where they appear.

What changes is the APPLICATION of the word within the context it is used.

English convolutes language and communications. That is why it is considered the easiest to speak yet the hardest to understand.

Did anyone read the article by Daniel Segraves?

I simply quote a Scripture and send you into a frenzy? Forgive my hillbilly ignorance and inferior intellect compared with your otherworldly intelligence, but how do you "refute" this verse? Let me guess, there's another Greek lesson coming. Man, why couldn't you have been there to show those ignorant and unlearned translators of the KJV how to read Greek? Then we'd have an accurate Bible. Oh well, I guess we'll just keep depending on you to tell us what the Scriptures really say.

Don't have to refute God's Word ... it is what it is ... not what you think it says.

Your baptismal regenerationist interpretation is not the only plausible one.

Still waiting to know why you quoted it. What does it mean to you, E.D.?

Frenzy? Is that what all this stuff on the floor is from?

Hand me the dust pan, I'll clean it up again....
