comment What kind of death does Ezekiel identify for the righteous who turn from righteousness? Is it spiritual, physical, or something else?
The context indicated spiritual death. "The soul who sins shall die" (v.20). Verse 30 described a future judgement. Therefore, they were to "repent and turn from all their transgression". This would give them "a new heart and a new spirit". Your uncontextual interpretation does not heed the warnings from God.

The Bible only has correct meaning in context. I'm sorry, your answer ignores the context. You don't consider verse 20: "the soul who sins shall die" or any other surrounding verses.

comment Does those who obey him just mean believe (not reject him) in Hebrews 5:9
It does not matter what Bob Wilkin "points out". He does not believe in repenting from sin or discipleship to be saved. The "easy believism" he promotes is a perversion of the true Gospel of Jesus Christ.

comment What is meant in 1 Peter 3:21 when it says “baptism now saves you”
Thanks Richard, for your Scripturally sound explanation. I believe baptism is the ceremony (like a wedding) that seals our faith in Christ who forgives our sins. The NT model was repentance, belief and baptism. If there was no repentance and faith —baptism would be worthless. An obedient faith submits to Christ who commanded His followers to be baptized into His death and resurrection (Rom 6:3-5).

comment What is the new covenant made with Jews/Israel in Jeremiah 31:31
Further, in Jeremiah 31:32 it states, "not like the covenant that I made with their fathers ..." These fathers were Jews and Gentiles who became Jews(Exodus 12). If Gentiles could become Jews before the new Covenat was given, why cannot they become Jews after the new covenant was given (through Jesus Christ)?

comment What is the new covenant made with Jews/Israel in Jeremiah 31:31
Blessed Greek: The Bible is a curtain of progressive revelation. There are many instances that space does not allow. Did the Jews who read Jeremiah's book understand fully who Judah and Israel were? Is a sovereign God who issues covenants entitled to define who this group is? Is the Bible man's book, or God's book? Did Abraham understand that his descendants would include a multitude who were not all blood descendants (Exodus 12)? Summary: God decides who is Israel and Judah. In Christ!

comment What is meant in 1 Peter 3:21 when it says “baptism now saves you”
Richard, I lovingly disagree with your interpretation. The context is wet (water). In the early church, baptism was practiced immediately. Early Christians connected baptism with their salvation. Water baptism reflected their identification with the death of Christ and commitment to walk in a new life. Rom 6:3-4 "Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? "4 We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life"
