The Battle Over Baptism, Who's Right.
Baptism in the name of The FATHER and The SON and The HOLY GHOST.
"Go Ye Therefore, And Teach All Nations, Baptizing Them In The Name Of The Father, And Of The Son, And Of The Holy Ghost."
St. Matthew 28:19
Or be Baptized in JESUS' Name
"Then 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."
There is a Group that are known as, The Trinitarians and a Group that are known as, The Apostolics.
They agree on just about everything else, but when it comes to baptism, that's when,
The Fight Breaks Out!
The Bible said, "For GOD Is Not The Author Of Confusion, But Of Peace, As In All Churches Of The Saints."
The LORD JESUS said, Be Baptized In The Name Of The FATHER, SON, And HOLY GHOST.
We Can't Believe What He Said In One Thing And Not The Other (baptism).
"And Why Call Ye Me, LORD, LORD, And Do Not The Things Which I Say?" St.Luke 6:46
"Whosoever Therefore Shall Be Ashamed Of Me And Of My Words In This Adulterous And Sinful Generation; Of Him Also Shall The Son Of Man Be Ashamed, When He Cometh In The Glory Of His Father With The Holy Angels."
You can't be ashamed of His Word, when it comes to Baptism.
So, the Bible said, The Servant Is Not Greater Than His LORD, Neither Is He Sent, Greater Than He Who Sent Him,
"Verily, Verily, I Say Unto You, The Servant Is Not Greater Than His Lord; Neither He That Is Sent Greater Than He That Sent Him."
So, what about the Baptism like the Apostles did in JESUS' Name?
Is it wrong?
"NO, BY NO MEANS!!!"
Jesus gave the Apostles' authority to represent HIM and We Must Obey Them, Also.
I was a young convert, reading the Bible, and I read when JESUS said,
Baptize in the Name Of the FATHER, and the SON, and the HOLY GHOST;
I DID THAT.
And, when I found out about being baptized in JESUS' Name,
I DID THAT, ALSO.
And, I REFUSE TO DENY EITHER ONE.
"For Whosoever Shall Keep The Whole Law, And Yet Offend In One Point, He Is Guilty Of All."
"So Likewise Ye, When Ye Shall Have Done All Those Things Which Are Commanded Of You, Say, We Are Unprofitable Servants: We Have Done That Which Was Our Duty To Do."
Any Organization, which Promotes Water Over BLOOD, Is Making A DRASTIC MISTAKE!!!
I have a daughter who has an illness and we went to an Apostolic Church. When the Minister gave an Altar Call for Prayer, we went up for my daughter to be prayed for, as well as, myself.
One of the Sisters, around the Altar, confronted my daughter about which way she was baptized.
GOD IS NOT PLEASED WITH THIS.
She did not ask her, if she had accepted CHRIST AS LORD and SAVIOR.
One of the thieves on the cross wasn't Baptized in No Name, but JESUS Told Him,
Thou Shalt Be With Me In Paradise.
ONE LORD, ONE FAITH, ONE BAPTISM (HOLY GHOST BAPTISM).
THE LORD GOD SAID, REPENT!!!
(This is The Sword Of The LORD)
