      Baptism for the Dead

   A False Mormon Doctrine

 

                By Peter James from:

               www/peterjamesx.com

 

1 Corinthians 15:29  Else what shall they do

which are baptized for the dead, if the dead rise not at all?

why are they then baptized for the dead?

 

This verse is used to promote the false doctrine,

that it is possible for someone, who is alive, to be baptised,

for someone, who is already dead, but did not have the

opportunity to be ‘Saved’, during their lifetime.

 

Large computer systems are used to trace, the names

of all the dead, who need to be baptised.

 

It is argued that without baptism, there is no salvation.

It is also argued that this proxy baptism, can be either accepted,

or rejected by the dead person, for whom the baptism is carried out.

 

This ordinance of baptism has to be carried out,

by the proper authorities,

of the Mormon priesthood, in a specific area, a temple,

and with all the correct procedures.

 

This argument is fraught with many problems.

 

Hebrews 9:27  And as it is appointed unto men once to die,

but after this the judgment:

 

This means that immediately after one dies,

the spirit is immediately judged.

This is not the final white throne judgment,

but this immediate judgment, determines, where the spirit of the man,

will spend the time, until the final white throne judgment.

 

It is a fallacy to believe, that there is anything that anyone

can do anything at all to affect this judgment.

 

This is as absurd, as the lie of Purgatory,

where you can pay the Roman Catholic priests,

never ending sums of money, to say Masses for the deceased,

in order to release them from the torment of Purgatory.

Very few, if any are consigned to hell, but almost everyone

is sent to Purgatory.

                             Abomination Of The Mass

It is claimed that with the baptism for the dead,

the deceased has to choose, whether they accept the baptism,

or reject it.

 

There are two possible outcomes.

One is a place of comfort, called Abraham’s Bosom,

and the other is hell, a place of torment.

   Abraham’s Bosom – A Place Of Comfort For The Just - New    Print

 

It is important to understand, that the criteria for the spirit

of the deceased to enter into Abraham’s Bosom is,

that the person is a ‘just’, person.

There these just spirits are made perfect.

 

This does not require the intervention of anyone else at all.

 

Hebrews 12:23  To the general assembly and church

of the firstborn, which are written in heaven,

and to God the Judge of all,

and to the spirits of just men made perfect,

 

We are clearly told that each person will suffer for his own sin,

or be rewarded for his own righteousness.

 

How can any ritual whatsoever, change this?

 

Ezekiel 18:20  The soul that sinneth, it shall die.

The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father,

neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son:

the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him,

and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.

 

Baptism for the dead, in fact becomes blasphemous,

and idolatrous, as we elevate ourselves above the Eternal God,

who alone knows what is in the hearts of every person,

who has ever lived.

We cannot even tell what is in the hearts of those,

who are living around us, much less those who have died,

and whom we have not known.

 

Do we really think that a ‘baptism for the dead’,

would make one jot of difference,

if the person was an evil, murdering atheist.

 

The judgment of a person is decided,

by the type of life, that that person lived.

 

Neither this nor any other act,

can be carried out, that will affect anyone, after they have died.

 

What does this verse mean?

 

1 Corinthians 15:29  Else what shall they do

which are baptized for the dead, if the dead rise not at all?

why are they then baptized for the dead?

 

When studying the bible, the very first thing that we need to do,

is to consider the context of any verse.

This can be the verses around the verse, the whole chapter,

the whole book, or the whole bible.

 

The beginning of the chapter tells us that Christ died for our sins,

            so the subject is the death of Christ.

 

1 Corinthians 15:3  For I delivered unto you first of all that which

I also received, how that Christ died for our sins,

according to the scriptures;

 

The next thing that we are told is that Christ was resurrected.

 

1 Corinthians 15:4  And that he was buried,

and that he rose again the third day

according to the scriptures:

 

We are then given the proofs of the reality of the resurrection,

where many people saw the risen Christ,

in verses 1 Corinthians 15: 5 – 11.

 

Again we see that the topic is the death, and resurrection of Christ:

 

1 Corinthians 15: 12   Now if Christ be preached that

he rose from the dead, how say some among you that

there is no resurrection of the dead?

 

1 Corinthians 15:13  But if there be no resurrection of the dead,

then is Christ not risen:

1 Corinthians 15:14  And if Christ be not risen,

then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.

 

Again we see that the topic is the death and resurrection

of Christ:

 

1 Corinthians 15:16  For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:

1 Corinthians 15:17  And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain;

ye are yet in your sins.

 

1 Corinthians 15:20   But now is Christ risen from the dead,

and become the firstfruits   First Fruit

(Christ is the First Fruit, it should be singular, and not plural, the ‘First Fruits’,

as Christ is only one person, the Greek confirms this) of them that slept.

 

This error also affects the punctuation, and therefore the meaning of:

 

1 Corinthians 15:23 But every man in his own order:

Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.

 

The order should therefore be three groups, and not two:

 

1 Corinthians 15:23 But every man in his own order:

(1) Christ

(2) the firstfruits

(3) afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.

 

Having clearly explained that Christ died, and had been

resurrected from the dead, the apostle Paul then proceeds to ask,

(Why is anyone being baptised for the dead?

What is the point of it, if the dead are not resurrected,

because I have just explained to you that our faith is in vain,

 

(1 Corinthians 15:16  For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:

 1 Corinthians 15:17  And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain;

 ye are yet in your sins.)

 

and instead of having salvation, we are doomed,

we are still in our sins ?

 

This is the meaning of the verse:

 

1 Corinthians 15:29  Else what shall they do

which are baptized for the dead, if the dead rise not at all?

why are they then baptized for the dead?

 

Throughout the chapter the apostle Paul, then proceeds

to expound on the many trials he faced and the difference

between the natural body and the resurrected body,

but that is a different subject.
