Settling this once and for all!

~ DC

Hi DC,

The CoE believes in many kinds of baptisms, and that the baptism of martyrs is the greatest of all.

Did you know that people were forbidden to wash the bodies of martyrs (which went against the normal custom of washing the corpse of the deceased) ? It was always said that you must not wash the bodies of martyrs, because they were baptized in their own blood. They were to be buried with their blood still on them as their crown and final testament.

The thief on the cross did not have a chance to become baptized, either, but is clearly with Christ.

But that does not mean that those of us who have the opportunity to be baptized should shirk that responsibility, it is after all, a command directly from Christ. It is something that He Himself did.
