They were not instructed to do anything "before" baptizing them. them.
The command wasn't "X then Y". It was "X AND Y".

You believe wrong....there is no saving power in water!!!! If that were so....Christ could have stayed home!!!!
Christ Himself dictated the matter (water in John 3:5) and form ("baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit" Matthew 28 18:20) of baptism right before He went "home".

No qualifiers. No exceptions.
Matt 3:7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his baptism, he said to them,“You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? 8 Bear fruit in keeping with repentance.

**seems like they didn't qualify to be baptized**

If a person has not experienced a live birth....how can he have sin on his soul?????
Jesus never taught that one attains heaven by simple virtue of having been born alive. He does not do this in John 3:5.

He said "no one" can enter His kingdom unless baptized, and commanded the apostles to baptize "all nations".

The Pharisees and Sadducees qualified for baptism. Did you forget to edit out where He called upon them to repent?

Well, He commanded baptism. Plainly.
Curiously, you're now finding fault with the Catholic Church for their obesiance to the commands of Jesus Christ in Scripture.
I believe the "make disciples, baptizing them...." part has been understood since the earliest times as baptism being the means by which we are made disciples. Just a thought.

Chuck, why would you dismiss the testimony of the earliest Christians, some of whom were taught directly by the apostles?

It's there.

John 3:5

New International Version (NIV)

5 Jesus answered,“Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit.

Do I next have to show you where it "ain't there" in Matthew 28 that He commanded the Apostles to "baptize all nations"?

a cult will try to add or change the Word of God.
Jesus said that a person must be Born Again to be able to enter Heaven.
can you show me where He said you must be Baptised to enter into Heaven?
glad that you have dropped in, BTW. been thinking about you.
Hello Preston,

Thank you for thinking about me.

I have suffered a lot of sadness over the months.

I would appreciate your prayers for comfort.

Thanks, Preston.

<quoted text>then explain to us how this Baptism of the Holy Ghost as recorded in the Bible happened to me 36 hours after I was Saved.

John chapter 7, verses 37-39.
sorry Hank, but your knowledge of what actually occurs concerning Baptism is flawed
Hello Preston,

John 7:37-39

37 On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice,“Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink.

38 Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.”

39 By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were <<<later to receive.>>> ***Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified.***

later to receive....go to Acts Chapter 1 & 2....what were the apostles going to receive?

“Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about".....NOT WATER BAPTISM....

It was Baptism of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.....

***Up to that time the Spirit HAD NOT been given, since Jesus HAD NOT yet been glorified.***

just silly to believe that you have the same born again experience as I because your mom and dad had you baptize.

yes silly, sad, and funny all at the sametime.

Sad.... to say baptism is in John 3:5 when it's not...truly sad how a cult can grip the human mind.

Truly sad to say Baptism is in John 3:5 when it is clearly not.

Truly said to use this verse to say we should baptize infants when baptism AGAIN is not even mentioned...14 but Jesus said,“Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.”

oh yeah ...how sad how a cult can grip the human mind. congrats Dan...they got you too.

Instead of putting your faith in a church, apostles, Mary, and saints you should try Jesus Christ Himself.

You're saying John 3:5 isn't referring to baptism. That's your call, but are you saying it CAN'T be referring to baptism, and if so, how is it possible that all Christians thought it was for 1500 years?
