Repent, Sinners! Oh, and happy Advent. It is true that all of us need repentance, but why is it that the New Testament seems to put a juxtaposition between John's baptism of repentance and Jesus' baptism of the Holy Spirit? They do go together, but one prepares the way for the other. But there is only one baptism (One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism.) So somehow they work together. It makes more sense in real life than in theology.
