According to Fada Oluoma, he mentioned that baptism, as outlined in the Catechism of the Catholic Church, washes away our original sin and makes us God's children and members of the Church. He likened it to a doorway leading to other Church rituals. Remember when Jesus was baptized by John in the River Jordan (Matthew 3:2)? At first, John said, 'You should baptize me,' but Jesus replied, 'Let's do it to do the right thing.' Through baptism, Fada Oluoma said Jesus did the right thing by fulfilling everything, just as mentioned in Matthew 5:17, where Jesus said he came to complete the laws, not change them.

Recall in Genesis 17 when God made a deal with Abraham that every male child must be circumcised? Well, Fada Oluoma explained that baptism is like the new circumcision. Through baptism, Jesus completed the deal God made with Abraham. That's why Romans 4:16 says those who have faith are like Abraham's children and receive the same blessings. Fada Oluoma emphasized that when we get baptized, we enter into a deal with God and receive the same blessings as Abraham's children. Baptism, he said, kind of puts us in a deal with God.
