Question

 

Gramps,

We have a friend who is taking the discussions. His assignment last week was to read Enos. He had an interesting question. He asked if Enos was ever baptized.

Answer

 

Kim,

We don’t have an explicit account of Enos getting baptized, but there is enough to assume that he got baptized.

We read that the trigger for Enos’s prayer was hearing the word of God being preached and believing it enough to try to pray. Was he baptized before he prayed? It’s quite possible, all the pieces are there for it to happen. Enos prayed for forgiveness of sin, which generally is something that a person does after they have converted and are trying to endure.

It’s also possible that this prayer was his conversion to the Lord. In which case Enos would have gone to be baptized shortly thereafter.
