SPIRITUAL LEADERSHIP Why we have to be baptized? To become Christians.

To cleanse us from the original sin. Original sin The state in which every descendant of Adam comes into the world, totally deprived of Grace, through inheriting the punishment, not of Adam’s personal sin but of his sin as head of human race.
It is called original because it comes down to us through our origin, from Adam. What happened to adam and eve on account of their sin?
They lost God’s abiding grace and friendship, their holiness and innocence; they lost the Sanctifying Grace, therefore, they lost the right to go to heaven to see God. Gen. 3:16-19
“In the sweat of your face shall you eat bread until you return to the earth, out of which you were taken: you are from dust and to dust you will return.” God expelled Adam and Eve from the Garden of Paradise.
“And the Lord God sent Him out of the Paradise of Pleasure.”
(Gen. 3:23-24) What are the punishment we inherited through original sin? We became subject to disease and death. This was the part of the punishment God laid to Adam.
Heaven was closed to all men until the death of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Our whole nature became inclined to evil. Our reason is in perpetual conflict wit our passions. “the imagination and thoughts of man’s heart are prone to evil” (gen.8:21) “THE FLESH LUSTS AGAINST THE SPIRIT, AND THE SPIRIT AGAINST THE FLESH” (GEN.5:17) EFFECTS OF BAPTISM ORIGINAL SIN IS FORGIVEN. WE RECEIVE THE SANCTIFYING GRACE. WE BECOME THE TEMPLE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. WE RECEIVE THE EVERLASTING MARK (indelible SEAL) THAT WE BELONG TO CHRIST. WE BECOME CHILDREN OF GOD (ROM 8:15-16): MEMBERS OF THE CHURCH OF CHRIST (1 COR. 6:15) WE BECOME THE HIERS OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN FRUITS
