The Bible states that you only have to get baptized once. That is between the person and GOD if they feel it necessary for another dunk.
Maybe they feel more cleaner the second time. lol

Buck, I'm still way behind. I don't think I'll ever catch up. You should just be able to touch water and be reminded of the Baptism. It's symbolic anyway.

I didn't forget.
I just don't necessarily a dunk in the ocean, lake, creek, pond, baptismal, stock tank, etc. is going to "save" you. I see people baptizing babies and small children who don't have a clue what is going on. Maybe it makes the parents feel better. What do you say?

You think it is only Catholic?

I know someone who got baptized in a Baptist church but went "rogue" and never set foot in a church as an adult unless it was a funeral, a wedding or special event. He would never say what turned him away/off.

He even wrote out a special thing that he did not want his funeral service in a church, so he was buried outside with the service in 100 degree heat.

What about Episcopalian? They believe Baptism is part of salvation too, don't they?

I've seen baptisms where they just get some kind of bowl, put tap water in it and put their hand in it and onto the head of whomever is being baptized. In the olden days, did they have to agree to sign pledge cards, dig in their wallet, etc. etc.

they baptized in the Jordan because there was much water there go figure that
to baptize is to immerse in water hmm
that would explain the need for much water

It is supposed to be symbolic of the resurrection. I could never trust someone to put a cloth over my nose and have me go all the way under (backwards) and then back up. I thought they were doing water torture (with a real baptism) and felt I hadn't done anything bad enough to deserve that. Now, they put any old bowl of water out and symbolically sprinkle some on your forehead and make you pledge to give money and time to the church. Was that part of the old baptismal system?

you know it wasn't part of the old system
that's what every church today wants is your money
and they don't care one hoot about you personally and that is the truth and many of us out there know it! so sad but so true.

That's true, Buck. I know one church who isn't paying some of the people who do things, but then the kicker is that if they need something painted or repaired around their house, that goes begging too.
So they don't give them the money to pay someone else.

So, it takes kind-hearted, generous people to buy this stuff on their own and try to take care of someone who isn't even in their "flock." What is the world coming to?

the end is near a lot of cold hearted people in the world. Read the whole chapter of Matthew 24 TX you will see what I am getting at.
