Recently I took water baptism according to Pentecostal rites. I became fond of the meanings metaphorically as being buried as Christ, being dead as Christ and then becoming resurrected. I felt the whole process to be an enactment of a metaphor. As a Christian I am not perfect and I am always in the process of asking forgiveness and being repentant. I have become fond of Christ, the gentle lamb who died for our sins and resurrected to become the omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent God.
