 Did Jesus Establish Baptism for the Dead?
What is important to see is that Paul’s mention of baptism for the dead in verse 29 is one of this series of arguments introduced to serve his purpose of defending the reasonableness of resurrection.
Third, Paul’s statement at the beginning of 1 Corinthians, noted earlier — “Christ sent me not to baptize but to preach the gospel” (1:16) — is a reminder that baptism does not have the same indispensable importance that faith in Christ has.
He wrote, “[Paul] wishes to show how fixed and firm is the resurrection of the dead, by giving the example of those who were so sure of the future resurrection that they would even baptize for the dead who died before they could be baptized.

 FAQ: Baptism for the Dead
Paul shows that there are troubling contradictions in the Gospel if the doctrine of salvation does not include the resurrection of mankind.
The reference to baptism for the dead addresses this indirectly: salvation can be possible for those who have died without being baptized, even though Christ said baptism was essential to salvation (John 3:3-5, see also my FAQ on baptism).
In turn, Paul virtually suggests Peter's concern for the living and the dead in the context of baptism for the dead in 1 Corinthians 15:29, as already discussed in the chapter treating that letter.

 References: Mormon vs Biblical Teachings about Salvation
Baptism for the dead: "The greatest responsibility in this world that God has laid upon us is to seek after our dead...Those saints who neglect it in behalf of their deceased relatives, do it at peril of their own salvation" (Joseph Smith, in Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p.356, 196).
The impersonal manner in which Paul refers to practitioners of proxy baptism also indicates he is not endorsing the practice: "what will those do who are baptized for the dead...why then are they baptized for them?" The impersonal 'they' contrasts markedly with the way Paul addresses believers in the same chapter, as 'you' (v.
15:29 — "His [Paul’s] only aim in alluding to it was that he might all the more firmly insist upon the resurrection of the body, in proportion as they who were vainly baptized for the dead resorted to the practice from their belief of such a resurrection".

 The Mummy Congress : Science, Obsession, and the Everlasting Dead by Heather Pringle
Pringle's journeys lead her to the lifelike remains of medieval saints entombed in Italy's grand cathedrals, eerily preserved bog bodies in the Netherlands bearing signs of violent and untimely slaughter, and frozen Inca princess glimpsed for the first time atop icy mountains.
In the grand scheme of scientific meetings, the Mummy Congress is a small, intimate affair, long on singular personalities and surreal slide shows and short on sophistication, hype, and ballyhoo.
He even loved his colleagues' favorite local hangout, the Restaurant of the Dead, a dining establishment that would never find its way into any tourist brochure but which was located just across the street from a local cemetery and a stone's throw from an important collection of Chilean mummies.

 Devin's LDS BLOG
Some Christians Pastors I have discussed this with thought that Paul mentions this custom almost in passing, using it in his arguments substantiating the resurrection of the dead, but without necessarily approving the practice (this is a very common explanation).
Many Commentators have long recognized that the plain meaning of the passage is that living people were being baptized for dead friends or relatives, but they usually try to get out of it by placing some other, more dubious interpretation on this verse.
It will be seen that even those scholars who opine that Paul disapproved of proxy baptism acknowledge that he was citing the practice as part of his defense of the resurrection.
