My uncle's sermon yesterday was on Acts, Ch. 8, and we came across the point when Phillip was speaking to the Ethiopian eunuch. We came across the topic of how Acts 8:37 is not in the most ancient manuscripts, and therefore is not in the modern translations other than the King James Version. This passage was apparently inserted by a scribe who wanted to explain why the Ethiopian eunuch was baptized. It is clear from the rest of scripture the eunuch was not saved by being baptized.
My question is though, should you make a "good confession" before baptism, and why/why not?
