A Secret, Sexy Bar in Kadikoy

Kadikoy has a large student population and is a progressive community on the Asian side of Istanbul. There are lots of good options for an evening of dancing and drinking.  One is quite a 'secret'.

 Karga is so word-of-mouth, it doesn’t have a name on its door. Ducking through the secretive, tiny street-side door is like walking into a private network of intimate spaces. There are four stories, a garden, and several balconies. You can eatand drink with friends or find a private, dark and comfy corner. The mood is a little edgy, the playlist is energized.  Here are directions.. take the ferry to Kadikoy if you aren't already on the Asian side. 
Walk south on Bahariye Cad. and take the 1st right after (not in front of) the Opera House. Take the 2nd left, walk 1 block, and look for the Hobbit-sized, unmarked wooden door with a raven above it DJ's spin music Sept through May, live music through the summer. Tea 4 TL. Beer 7.50-13 TL. Shots 8-13 TL. Cocktails 19-23 TL. Open M-Th 11am-2am, F-Sa 11am-4am, Su 11am-2am. Closes in late winter.

    A mode is a method of doing something. Baptism is a specific action and that action is immersion in water.

    The word baptism is a transliteration from the Greek language. Baptism is not a translated word.

    Ninety nine percent of all Bibles "transliterate" baptism from the the Greek language.

    Examples of a Bible translation that actually translated from the Greek language.

    Romans 6:4 We were, therefore, buried with him by immersion into death; that as Christ was raised from the dead by God the Father, thus we also should walk in newness of life. (The Better Version of The New Testament by Chester Estes)

    To say that sprinkling and pouring are modes of baptism not only defies logic, but rejects the honest study of the subject of baptism. There are no translations that translate immersion as pouring nor as sprinkling.

    Mark 16:16 He who has believed, and has been immersed, will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. (The Better Version of The New Testament by Chester Estes)

    Where is the translation that says, has been sprinkled, will be saved or that says has been poured, will be saved?

    Baptism is not divided into modes. Baptism is the action and the action is immersion.
