Ron Hayes, there is no inconsistencies and disagreements in the Bible. Those who don't study it seriously believe there are such things. If telling the truth hinders the cause of Christianity, it's hearers' problems, as the Bible says so.

Jesus Himself was baptized with water, and both He and Apostles gave water baptisms to believers, and the Early Church never missed it and kept practicing the water baptism. Read the Gospels and Acts again. Water baptism was commanded by the Lord Jesus and it signifies the spiritual reality of believer's death to sin and self and the new life in Christ.

M W P You seem to prefer to pick and choose what scriptures you WANT to believe and to ignore the one's you don't like. Try seriously considering EVERY statement in the Bible, and discerning why the inconsistencies and disagreements. Your opinion is the only one that is right? Your attitude does not help the cause of Christianity.

The Father is God Gal.1:1, Eph..4:6, Gal.1:1 "Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;" the him is the Son)

Jesus Himself said to be baptised in the Name of the Father AND(meaning as well as) the Son AND(meaning as well as) the Holy Spirit ... once again youre adding your own words to scripture...as its written......... Every word of God is tested; He is a shield to those who take refuge in Him. Do not add to His words Lest He reprove you, and you be proved a liar. (Pr 30:5,6).

Where in the bible does it say( verse(s) please) that the Father, Son , or Spirit are only titles and arent actually names of the Godhead?

The best statement about the Jewish & Jesus commanded practice of after faith & commitment being baptized was in a simple Christian & Missionary Allance small page tract I read in Viet-Nam in about 1967. It was something like: Jesus did it & commanded his apostles & disciples to follow his example. Jesus commanded it. Peter & Paul practiced it. BTW, Why not just follow Jesus own example;e, command & teaching. Let just do this simple thing and go on to grow in Christ, His Spirt and exercise the power and share what he wanted us to share with all people?

Hello There. Peace of Christ. The fellow in the screen mentions Ephe. 4:4 One Lord, "ONE BAPTISM"...if he reads that why is it that he ends with baptizing them in the name of the father and of the son and of the holy spirit..when the "ONE" baptism in the bible is in the Name of Jesus. I would ask me to answer my question...the versicle of matthew 28:18 was written by Eusebius by order of constantinte, to bring the romans people to accept the pagan doctrine of the trinity...If you buy the Hebrew Gospel of Matthew, you will not find that scripture, there....that is another trick satan has introduced the human race through his spiritual wife the catholic church.... God BLess...........Brother James.

As a Mennonite we have paid the price in the past of standing for this truth by martyrs by the thousands. One note that should be meantioned here is People must be baptized in the name which in the book of Act is always Jesus. Father Son and Holy Spirit are not names but titles. Yahshua who is Yahweh saves is the only one you can be baptized into. It is hard to believe with the clarity of scripture that people can still be following the fake Catholic formula.

The comments posted show just what the carnal mind and the love of self has done to Christianity. We are not to bash each other for the difference in our thoughts on the Scrip0tures, but respect the ideas of those people. Just love, respect and follow Christ and He will make it all known to you at the judgment. No one is going to a PLACE called heaven when they die, and because there is no such PLACE called hell no one will be going there either. After the judgment is done with and punishment is allotted to and served, and Christ has put all enemies under His feet, He will turn ALL things back to the Father and we will be ALL in ALL with Him.(! Cor.15:20-28)and since God's habitat is in the HEAVENS[ALL OF THE HEAVENS] that is where our habitat will be. That is God's plan from the very beginning(Isaiah 46:9-10). To say that hell exists and that billions of God's creatures will spend eternity there is the highest form of blasphemy, taking the sovereignty from God and saying He and His Son are to weak to do what they set out to do, which was being the salvation for ALL MANKIND. Regardless of your beliefs on the baptism, or any of the other types and shadows of the law, in the end all mankind will be given immortality and spend eternity with God.

Elmer Rosero, but Apostle Paul DID baptize believers in the obedience to Jesus.

Emman Mangco, every baptism was given with water except for the baptism of the Holy Spirit which is a spiritual reality. Read the entire Gospels, Acts and the Epistles again.
