• weekend wrap up •

Hey y'all!

The past few days have been a whirlwind -- and I have gotten to do a few really fun things that I of course wanted to share with y'all. I've been crazy busy so I haven't had time to blog until now!

First off, I went peach picking!! I love picking fruit -- and peaches are one of my favorites. The past few summers, we have been able to make time to cross that off the summer bucket list, and once again we made it happen! I went with my grandparents, which of course was so fun and such a treat. I got a big box of amazing peaches, and I'm sad to say we've almost eaten all of them at my house!

The other super fun thing I did this weekend was go to the lake! We've been boating before, but this was my family's first time tubing. Which was a total blast, I must say! I am still sore two days later (embarrassing). But one crazy thing that happened -- when we got there, I saw that my friends, Blair and Shane, were both posting pictures of the lake. I quickly texted Blair asking where they were at, and it turns out they were at the same lake, Lake Tenkiller! How crazy is that?!

We said we would meet up if we could, but with it being a huge lake it didn't really seem possible. So how crazy is it that we drove up to some cliffs to jump off...and the Pullman family was driving their boat past us! So we ended up meeting back up for lunch, swimming, and then they took my brothers and I out water skiing. It was a blast, and such a treat to see my friends there, too!

I think my favorite part of the entire lake day was the fact that my brothers brought their GoPro, and we got some pretty sweet footage/pictures out of it. I also loved the cliff jumping -- some of the cliffs we jumped off were 40 and 50 feet tall! It was scary, but so fun, too.

All in all, it was a weekend for the books. I can't believe summer is coming to a close in just a few short weeks! I am making the most of it while I can.

    Do nonbelievers receive forgiveness from sins when they are baptized in water?

    If atheists and other nonbelievers are baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and the Holy Spirit do they receive forgiveness from sins? Of course not.

    John 8:24 Therefore, I said to you, Your will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins.(TBVOTNT)

    Water baptism alone does not wash away sins. Nonbelievers will die in their sins.

    Mark 16:16 He who has believed, and has been immersed, will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.(TBVOTNT)

    Nonbelievers will be condemned.

    Acts 3:19 Repent, therefore, and turn again, in order that your sins may be blotted out, so that there may come seasons of refreshment from the presence of the Lord; (TBVOTNT)

    Water baptism that is not preceded by repentance is meaningless. There is no forgiveness without repentance. Repentance means to change from unbelief to belief. Repentance means to make a commitment to turn from sin and turn toward God.

    Acts 2:38 Then Peter said to them, Let each one of you repent and be immersed, in the name of Jesus Christ, in order to the remission of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.(TBVOTNT)

    Atheists and other nonbelievers do not have their sins washed away by being immersed in water.

    Newborn babies and small children do not have their sins washed away by being immersed in water. Why? First they have not committed any sins and they are not guilty of sin. Second, if they were guilty of sin they are incapable of believing in Jesus as the Christ, the Son of the living God.

    Jesus did not know good from evil as a small child and neither do newborn children know right from wrong. Babies are not sinners, nor are they guilty of sin.

    Isaiah 7:14-16"Therefore the Lord Himself will give a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel. 15 "Curds and honey He shall eat, that He may know to refuse the evil and choose the good. 16 "For before the Child shall know to refuse the evil and choose good, the land that you dread will be forsaken by both her kings.(NKJV)

    There is an age of accountability.
