Footnote number 9 of Ron Hale’s essay states:

“Hübmaier would never have made the following statement:
‘I am a baptistic guy attending a Presbyterian Church. Why? Because baptism was a fence that seemed more harmful than helpful.’ A quote by Barnabas Piper, a new employee of LifeWay (formerly known as the Baptist Book Stores).
Hübmaier was burned at the stake for his beliefs on baptism. His wife was killed three days later by drowning. Baptism meant something to the thousands that have died through the years.”

Either B. Piper and his ilk are ignorant of this, or the sacrifice of baptistic martyrs is insignificant to them. Wonder if B. Piper, et al, would say that our Baptist forebears wasted their lives for the sake of NT baptism. Indeed, to the martyrs, baptism was harmful; in fact, it was fatal. What a travesty to trample on their graves; and worse yet, to demean and diminish the picture of salvation as exemplified by the One who bought it, as well as modeled and commanded it.
What have we come to?

Thank you, Ron Hale, for your treatise.
