Many teach today that upon salvation, we the church (Body of Christ) become part of spiritual Israel. Not physical Israel, but a spiritual one. My question today is if the Bible truly teaches that?
The question that I have been struggling with since I moved away from an Acts 2 view of the birth of the church is, "What about baptism?" Is that for us today? Where are we told in Scripture that we are to be baptized? Is it required for salvation as some say? Or is it just required for obedience?
