I am sorry but you have just shown us here there was more than one baptism that is, John's baptism and the Lord's baptism. However, as I said before Saban your looking at John's literal water baptism as your looking at God's baptism and I have shown you just from the word that John said that I have baptized you with water but there will come one after me that will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.
Saban, this is the [one baptism] to be saved not some literal water this was just a sign as John's baptism was a sign this is why he said that Jesus must baptize us by His Spirit this is when He alone saves one by His word for faith come by hearing not by some water but by hearing and hearing by the word of God. God the Holy Spirit must apply His word to the heart of the one whom He saves.
Saban, I am truly sorry but your mixing up works with some water thinking what you can do that saves one when you used to believe one is saved by the word and the Spirit. Why your adding some literal water into the mix to save one is truly sad and I mean this. You see Saban, I already said, you will never see this wonderful truth unless God the Holy Spirit reveals truth to you and that can only happen if one is saved alone by the word and the Spirit. John 3:1-6, 4:23, 1 Peter 1:23, Eph. 5:26.
Saban, I only hope nothing but the highest good for you this is why I spent this time showing you from the word of God that water does not save one the living water of the word by the Spirit does period! When I asked you Saban if one does not get water baptized is he saved? You said, no! Saban, when you state this your adding works in the mix this is the true boasting because one is saved by God's grace through faith apart from any works like getting dipped into some literal water that saves least any man should boast. This is why, Eph. 2:8-9 declares this truth many people love to boast in what they do this is why I put up those old posts to help show people like you that many have a do it your self have it your way self help gospel that is really built on man and not on the grace of God sad to say but many will be shocked on the day, Matthew 7:22-23. Saban, I say this because I truly hope nothing but the highest good for you and that is, that God would also show you that one is saved alone by His word and His Spirit. I thought you believed this but sad so sad to see that your adding water into the mix this will not wash away anyone sins we need the Lord to wash us, thus He alone gets all the glory not man boasting in what he did. Thank you. Gary 1 John 3:13-15.
I'm not sure if you've noticed, but you Gary are the one that seems to have the boastful attitude. Anyone can submit to baptism. Why would one boast that they had been baptized for the remission of sins (Acts 2:38)? It's easy. It's a simple command. His yoke is easy and his burden is light.
If not for the Spirit giving us the Word and the Word telling us about the Plan of Salvation I never would've known to be baptized. There's no need to try to confuse it.
John's baptism was replaced with baptism into Jesus Christ after Jesus had died, was buried and resurrected. It couldn't have been in place before then.
I'm surprised you'd mention the fact that we are not to add to or take away from the Word when you have practiced TWO baptisms after Paul tells us there's only one now. If we're not to add to or take away from the Word, why would you submit to TWO baptism's?
