Hi, I'm Phil and I'm the one who started this wiki. I was born in Seattle, had a Baptist upbringing, went to a Baptist Bible college, and have been in a Baptist church ever since.

I married the wife of my dreams eight years ago and we now have four wonderful kids.

I am a .NET web application developer. No, I don't create websites (although I have done this in the past on the side, and it is similar to what I do). Think of what I write on a daily basis as software. Like Quicken or Microsoft Word, but instead of residing on your PC, you would access it through the browser over a local or wide-area network (like the internet).

I try to apply my faith to my daily life in every way possible. I hate hypocrisy… I like to know why I know or believe things and if there's any shadow of a doubt, or a question gets posed to me that I can't give an answer to, it really bothers me. That's why I created this site. I want to hear the "other side" that I've never been willing to consider, and have a conversation that will lead all involved to the truth.

I admit, it is very tempting to include a paragraph here on how Jesus could not have meant baptism in this verse by saying that it had not been instituted yet. This point has been raised by others in some of the research I have done—even going so far as to say that it was not until the great commission or even the day of pentecost. However, I'm not convinced this is the case. Later in this very chapter, Jesus travels to Judea and he and his disciples baptize. Was it a Christian baptism? Or was it more akin to John the Baptist's baptism, for which believers would later need to be rebaptized?
