"Once again, another misunderstanding of Paul's meaning in 1 Corinthians 1. He also makes two references to baptism in Ephesians, in 4:5 and 5:26; he personally baptized the 12 disciples from John in Ephesus in Acts 19. He also discusses baptism in the Colossian letter, and many persons in various groups see Jesus' admonition in Revelation 2:6-to the church at Ephesus, to repent and do the first works-to refer to baptism (I disagree, but others see it as such)."
Paul also laid his hands on those 12 "certain" disciples in Acts 19 who were Jews, btw, since they were baptized unto John's baptism, which was for repentence by Jews unto Isreal. Are we also to expect that the holy ghost has to come on us by the laying on of Paul's hands today?
And since he was not sent to baptize with water, he cannot possibly be referencing water baptism in any of his epistles. He was sent to preach the cross, not baptism, and there is nowhere in any of his epistles where he tells anyone that someone else is going to come along and water baptism. It's not there, because that's not what is going on.
Paul's gospel is not the same gospel as the one Peter preached, of vice-versa. Sorry that you can't bring yourself to see it.
Again I ask, are you nullifying the commandments of God by your tradition?

Ps-I hate the phones too. They always make stupid "corrections". My wife has an uncle who is a church going man, and because of auto correct he sent a sexually explicit text to his own daughter! You could tell it was an accident because the text made absolutely no sense.

I really wish that there was an edit feature for these posts. The phone typing is not all that it's cracked up to be.
Even worse, try the voice feature, where you talk and it types for you. Smartphones can be stupid at times.

Just read what it writes before you send it.

I still very much prefer to talk on the phone than to text and edit. My kids don't like to actually talk on the phone anymore. I am thinking that if we had been doing texting only for the last 100 years and talking on the phone was just now invented, no one would want to text.
