Overcoming Adversity out now!

Yes! It's finally here. A few weeks ago, I organised a blogfest on my writing blog whereby members of the incredible writing community would contribute pieces - real life, flash fiction, poetry - on the theme of "overcoming adversity". I never could have anticipated the overwhelming response, leading to the end result of what I hope is a diverse and inspiring collection of 70 stellar individual items.

All proceeds of the book will go directly to Andrew's college fund. Links to buy are as follows:

Amazon UK (Kindle)
Amazon UK (paperback)
Amazon US (Kindle)
Amazon US (paperback)
Smashwords
Goodreads

We also have massive news regarding Andrew's journey to college. Andrew's social worker has completed her assessment and is recommending he attends Beaumont College. That doesn't mean he's home and dry yet, but it's a huge step towards getting the local council behind our case.

Finally, my wife has started up a home business to raise funds, selling wax warmers - wickless candles with no flame and no mess. Simply plug it in and melt wax bars on top to give off a variety of pleasant aromas. Again, this has only been going a few short weeks, but it's taken off in a big way! Please visit Heather's website to find out more.

That's all for now. Have a great weekend!

  9. WATER BAPTISM. DO INFANTS QUALIFY? BY STEVE FINNELL

    Are infants proper candidates for baptism? Do babies meet the requirements to be baptized? The short answer is no.

    Acts 8:26-40 ....36 As they went along the road they came to some water; and the eunuch said, "Look! Water! What prevents me from being baptized? 37 [And Philip said, "If you believe with all your heart, you may." And he answered and said, "I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God."]

    Unlike the Ethiopian eunuch; babies cannot believe with all their heart. Infants cannot make the confession, that Jesus is the Christ and the Son of God. Babies do meet the requirements for water baptism.

    DAY OF PENTECOST

    Acts 2:22-37 Now when they heard this, they were pierced to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, "Brethren, what shall we do?"

    There were no infants baptized on the Day of Pentecost. Why not?

    1. They could not believe in Jesus the Nazarene.
    2. Infants could not believe in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus.
    3. Babies could not realize that God made Jesus both Lord and Christ.
    4. Infants could not be pierced to the heart, nor could they ask, " Brethren, what shall we do?"

    Acts 2:38 Peter said to them,"Repent, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

    Infants do not need to repent; because they have no sin to repent from. Repentance means to turn from sin and turn toward God. Infants are not candidates for water baptism.

    Acts 2:41 So then, those who had received his word were baptized; and that day there were added about three thousand souls.

    There were no infants added to the church that day. Why not? Because babies could not receive Peter's word. Infants are not capable of understanding the gospel. Infants are not qualified to be baptized in water.

    THE JAILER AND HIS HOUSEHOLD SAVED

    Acts 16:31-34 They said, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household.....33.....and immediately he was baptized, he and all his household. 34 ....having believed in God with his whole household.

    The jailer and his whole household believed before they were baptized. There were no babies baptized. Infants are not capable of believing. Infants are not qualified to be baptized.

    THERE IS NO BIBLICAL RECORD OF ANY CHRISTIAN THAT WAS BAPTIZED BEFORE THEY BELIEVED.

    INFANTS CANNOT BELIEVE THAT JESUS IS THE CHRIST. THEY ARE NOT QUALIFIED TO BE IMMERSED IN WATER.
