Passages about water or cleasing:
Psalm 51:2
2 Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity,
and cleanse me from my sin!
John 13:10
10 Jesus said to him,“The one who has bathed does not need to wash, except for his feet, but is completely clean. And you are clean, but not every one of you.”
John 15:3
3 Already you are clean because of the word that I have spoken to you.
Ephesians 5:26
26 that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word,
Woman at the well:
John 4:10
10 Jesus answered her,“If you knew the gift of God, and who it is that is saying to you,‘Give me a drink,’ you would have asked him, and he would have given you living water.”
**Water is the cleasing from God when one repents**
Chuck, I'm really just learning about you guys. I guess I didn't realize how radical you are.
I'll ask a couple questions and step off the forum for awhile to let you debate the way to salvation with other protestants.
1. Almost all Protestants stress the IMPORTANCE of Baptism with water. You're new assertion that water is 'stupid' is very very new. It simply was never taught nor believed by anybody is Christianity until about recently. In fact my research shows that infant Baptism was practiced so early on that it has to be assumed that Peter indeed Baptized the ENTIRE household and not just the adults.

2. Do you honestly believe - in your heart- that you're discovering something new or 'forgotten' by reading the 27 Books of the NT in the year 2013?

lol. I'm sorry I ask tough questions. evidently you can't answer them..
pretend I'm a new recruit into your sect. If they ask you the following question, answer it like you would them.

1. Where does Jesus teach that the Bible is the authority on His Ministry? Where is sola scripture taught by the Apostles?
2. why is it that these two things above, were never taught in Christianity until a few hundred yrs ago?
3. Which one of you thousands of non-Catholics are teaching the truth?
4. At what point did Catholicism 'go wrong' and you guys 'get it right'?

Sorry Chucky, you guys simply require people to be stupid first, before they can accept your new brand of Christianity. I had an opportunity to join your guys ya know? You're way to 'out there' for any rational person to follow..

You are certainly a natural man when it comes to your health and your wealth, as I have pointed out.
When your health is on the line - you go to a discerning medical doctor, not a spiritualist.
When your wealth is on the line, you somehow re-interpret all of Jesus' teachings on money.
You haven't become a eunuch, even though you are now able with modern medicine. Typical of a natural man.
I'll also bet you do not take up serpents.
We are both natural men. Only I am happy to admit it. Don't worry, no boggy man is going to punish you for using common sense.

Are you using this verse to cancel out Baptism with water?
To God, water is significant. It doesn't matter if Chuck in the year 2013 thinks water is stupid. Chuck doesn't get to decide the correct form of Baptism.
Christ (God made manifest) showed the world what He wanted done when He Himself was Baptized in the river with water.
God made water. Water is the most essential thing for all life on the planet. We can't survive without water. It brings forth and sustains life and can end life as God demonstrated when He used it to flood the Earth.
As early Church Father, Iraneus taught, water for Baptism is sacred; its Holy.
Its necessary for Baptism because its important to God. Jesus and the Apostles taught Baptism using water plain and simple. You can decipher Bible verses until you're blue in the face, it doesn't matter Chuck. What you now claim about Baptism was never taught.

The spiritual one writes -- "when my health is on the line ,,,I go to God...first."

Some who are truly spiritual and go to God first, last, and exclusively.

Your spin is that God created natural men like medical science doctors -- so you don't have to follow Biblical spiritual cures by God alone.

That makes no sense. You go to medical science natural men or women because your natural intellect works when God doesn't.

Interesting how the human mind works to protect cherished beliefs.
