    Now I'm thinking, Moses was not baptized, Lot wasn't, Adam and Eve were never baptized.

    Weird

    Matt. 28:19, "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit." The clear command of Jesus is to baptize this way.

    Circumcision was a sign of being under the Old Covenant, which was a foreshadowing the circumcision of the heart in the New Covenant.

    Was a man already circumcised when he was called? He should not become uncircumcised. Was a man uncircumcised when he was called? He should not be circumcised.

    Just dunk me in the river, done.

    How about a non-denominational church. They have less regulations/formalities.

    My non denominational church would still want to make sure that you
    have counted the cost and know the reasons why you are being baptized.
    If you are against making a confession of faith, you may not be ready...

    ​Yes, mine too. They want to make sure you've been born again and are getting baptized out of obedience. But they don't make you fill out a bunch of paper work and all that so it's a simpler process.

    Doesn't the new testament say

    "I baptize you with water, but one will come who will baptize you with fire"

    So when Jesus said "Go out and baptize, making disciples"

    Does he mean by fire or water?

    Yeah, that paperwork jazz struck me as being strange.

    Jesus baptizes with the Holy Spirit and with fire. Men baptize with water.

    I got baptized in the Jordan river. At a tourist trap. Nicely done, but a tourist trap none the less

    Truth is available only to those who have the courage to question whatever they think they know.

    It's hard to learn anything when you always feel the need to be the expert.

    Mark 7:34 “Ephphatha,” that is, “Be opened.”

    In the instance of baptism, fire is a figurative manifestation of God. Two gospels add "and fire."

    Baptism isn't something you forget, its something you experience. Any Christian can baptize another Christian, it should be by complete submersion. Its just an outward demonstration of an inward transformation, dying to the flesh and being reborn from above. Most churches just want to make sure you understand what the process represents, they want to make sure you understand the importance and that you are ready, then its your choice.

    Since wrestlers do not wear armor, but soldiers do -- when they go to war -- perhaps you need to sit down and study Ephesians 6 and other related Scriptures. And you would flat out lose had God not provided "the whole armor of God".

    It's not real war armor brother, it's being mentally and emotionally protected from in coming attacks.

    It's got nothing to do with going around thumping people with Gods word, if they are in error. It's using these implements to defend against Satan's trickery.

    Read battle field of the mind, she's got that right.

    I actually liked what was offered... The Authority of GOD can be received by the Faithful. Haughty minds of men always esteem worldly authority... us poor and meek are Worthy, GOD be thanked.

    Ask for the Holy Spirit Baptism.... Repent and seek and receive.

    Nay, what about your heart? Is it circumcised?

    Acts 2

    37Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men andbrethren, what shall we do? 38Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 39For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, evenas many as the Lord our God shall call. 40And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation. 41Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.
