Illus. about past relatives not immersed – A man owned a sandwich shop and eventually his son took over the business. The son begins to put his fingerprint on the Shop upgrading the décor and checking out the equipment. He had the old scales that his father had used for years calibrated for accuracy. He found out that the scale was weighing one ounce short. Was the father being dishonest all those years that the scale was off? No! Would the son be dishonest if he continued to use the scale as is? In the same way, we do not condemn those who do not know another way, but we who understand the means and mode of baptism are dishonest if we teach another way.
