Why John MacArthur’s Credobaptism is “Devilish” — Part Two

1 Corinthians10:1-2 says the Israelites were baptized in the Red Sea. If as he says, baptism is immersion, then all Israel were immersed! So the Exodus story, according to JMac, is turned on its head: Israelites, not the Egyptians, were immersed and drowned in the sea!
