Gospel of Jesus Christ

At Second Peter Three, the writer observed that some things in the epistles of the apostle Paul were hard to be understood. An example of this may be at First Corinthians Fifteen, where Paul defended the doctrine of the resurrection. One of the defenses he offered was in the form of a rhetorical question, asking why any would be baptized for the dead if the dead are not raised. Though being baptized for another is not elsewhere referenced and receives no scriptural endorsement, it is historically known that such vicarious acts of religion were practiced among the ancients. However, what is not difficult to understand is that all in judgment will give account for his own deeds, not those of another and that they are lost who obey not the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
