    Romans 3:10-12

    Reading 1 John may help with your examination of whether you are in the faith (2 Corinthians 13:5). "I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life" (1 John 5:13).

    Matthew 5:44-48 New International Version (NIV) 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven.

    I certainly understand why there is confusion surrounding the topic of baptism. That’s why we have to clearly define each baptism referenced in the Bible, most especially the ones for a believer in our Lord Jesus Christ. Let’s start with water baptism. I’m sure we can agree, on the most basic...

    This conversation has moved way beyond whether belief and baptism are required for salvation. I am by no means excusing Simon’s wickedness. It is exactly as Peter describes it. I didn’t ask you to compare yourself with Simon. I asked you whether you committed any wickedness after believing and...

    What comes after vv. 20-21? "Repent, therefore, of this wickedness of yours, and pray to the Lord that, if possible, the intent of your heart may be forgiven you" (v. 22). Again, I ask you, have you committed any wickedness since you believed and were baptized?

    I noticed you didn't quote v. 24: "And Simon answered, 'Pray for me to the Lord, that nothing of what you have said may come upon me.'" Are you claiming that Simon couldn't repent of his sin of thinking that the Gift of God could be obtained with money? Tell me, please, have you committed any...

    Baptism, which corresponds to this, now saves you, not as a removal of dirt from the body but as an appeal to God for a good conscience through the resurrection of Jesus Christ (1 Peter 3:21).

    One case at a time, please. Luke clearly states that Simon believed and was baptized. He even continued with Philip. Simon did not reject the Gospel. This case cannot be used as evidence of someone rejecting the Gospel and then being baptized.

    So am I correct in saying that you believe Paul speaks of a third baptism for Christians in 1 Corinthians 12:13?

    Are you able to support with Scripture where someone who did not believe the Gospel was baptized?

    I'm still unclear as to how you're answering my question. Are you reporting that there is a third baptism for Christians?

    Who gets baptized? Those who believe after hearing the gospel, or those who do not believe?

    The two baptisms that Christians experience are (1) in water, the baptizer being a human here on earth, and (2) in the Holy Spirit, the baptizer being Jesus in heaven. To make sure I understand your post, you believe there is a third baptism, correct?

    Indeed. Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit” (Acts 2:38). This is why he commanded those in Acts 10, from which you just quoted, to be baptized (v. 48).

    Of course baptism follows believing, just as Jesus said: "Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved.” He did not say, “Whoever is baptized and believes will be saved.”

    Let us walk properly as in the daytime, not in orgies and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and sensuality, not in quarreling and jealousy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires (Romans 13:13-14).
