No matter how it is put,or the words used to describe the inner workings of the Spirit in our lives,we need desparately to be saved,to walk in the spirit of Christ,to have His Mind in ours as we grow in grace,and we need the infilling of the Holy Spirit.God knows how to give what is GOOD and Holy to all of us.

They Baptize in Jesus Name per scriptures
Joh 3:5 KJV Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
Act 2:38 KJV Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Act 8:12-16 KJV 12 But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women. 13 Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done. 14 Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John: 15 Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost: 16 (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.)
Act 9:18 KJV And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized.
Act 10:47-48 KJV 47 Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we? 48 And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.
Act 19:1-5 KJV And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples, 2 He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost. 3 And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John’s baptism. 4 Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus. 5 When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.
Act 22:12-16 KJV 12 And one Ananias, a devout man according to the law, having a good report of all the Jews which dwelt there, 13 Came unto me, and stood, and said unto me, Brother Saul, receive thy sight. And the same hour I looked up upon him. 14 And he said, The God of our fathers hath chosen thee, that thou shouldest know his will, and see that Just One, and shouldest hear the voice of his mouth. 15 For thou shalt be his witness unto all men of what thou hast seen and heard. 16 And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord.

Rom 6:3-6 KJV 3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? 4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. 5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: 6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
Col 2:11-14 KJV 11 In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ: 12 Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead. 13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; 14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;
1Pe 3:21 KJV The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:
1Jo 2:12 KJV I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name’s sake.
King James 2000 Bible (©2003)
For in him dwells all the fullness of the Deity bodily.
American King James Version
For in him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.
2 Corinthians 5:19 that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men's sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.
Colossians 1:19 For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him,
I do not see where they deny the trinity at all.
I also believe either way of being baptised is ok Father, Son and Holy Ghost in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. This is how I was Baptised by a Southern Baptist Minister believe it or not.

Every Christian expression of faith on this planet includes the mandate that we must walk in sobriety,not living as those who are without hope,but to walk circumspectly.
It is common sense to realize that this walk of faith as believers includes resisting the DEVIL,and disciplining our own hearts,souls,minds in Christ. His salvation is sure and Holy,and altogether lovely.It was for us that we are brought into a saving knowledge of Christ,but to just stand around and expect the Lord Jesus to perfect us without our efforts as well,seems again to return one to a robotic stage of mindset.
We are not robots and our free will is in active mode till we take our last breath,so how is it that our concerted effort to live a holy life is not expected of us?
Being saved means that we have entered a NEW LIFE with Christ,it does not mean that we have become perfect beings.It is a long life of surrender,not to salvation,but to the WILL of HIM who was sent by GOD.We embrace His salvation His remedy for sin,and His ability to be our only salvation,than we join with Him in the arduous task of walking in that Light till we die.
Who said it was easy? Who said that we just prance along as dopey little followers,living in fantasy worlds?If there are those who do so,they are not reading the Word,and they do not have a clue about FREE WILL!
What is so marvelous about our salvation,is that God works together with us to walk in NEWNESS of Life,as we surrender our free will to Him daily,we learn about Him,and from glory to glory He changes us.
That is why also Anthony we need the rest of the Body of Christ.As we struggle with our flesh and sin,also our free will,we see as examples our brothers and sisters in Christ who walk by faith.There is nothing like being mentored in Christ.How wonderful are the feet of those who publish good news,and how wonderful to be in a Family of believers who not perfect learn together to walk with HIM who is able to save from the uttermost to the uttermost!

What, no stories about bad priests and the corrupt Catholic hierarchy?
This must be the "nice Dan" day....
#405955 Nov 30, 2012
You might have bit off more than you can chew on this topic you choose here Free Mind.
Catholics do not want to believe that Mary was an ordinary woman,the doctrine of the Immaculate Conception already launches Mary into that semi divine state no other human being can enter.
I have always believed that Mary being a Jewish woman,born in sin as the rest of us,is even with a greater testimony of faith in regards to her Son.Because it was in her virginity that He was kept in a holy state,and since sin is passed through the male seed,the woman' virgin state is the sacred temple of His conception.
Mary's compliance with allowing her body to receive that Holy Seed from God the Holy Spirit,knew her state as the Handmaiden of the LORD.She knew that God is her Savior,and that His using her in the Holiest Plan of Salvation,includes hher salvation as well,and what greater testimony could Mary have than to not only know the Savior but to be saved from sin herself.
Mary represents humanity in a way that no other woman could possibly know,she bears in her womb the Holy Child Jesus,and she is saved from sin,knowing the new life within,but actually experiencing the full pregnancy of God the Son in her body.What could be more blessed,no other woman can testify to the magnitude of what Mary experiences in the full development of the Life of Christ in her womb in the state of pregnancy.
It is more glorious that Mary like all women born of human flesh was saved from sin,and was chosen to bear in her body the Holy One of Israel. Sin is of no obstacle to God her Father,as she yielded complete contro of her body and soul to HIM who saves,as He is the only Savior.Jesus would be the ONE who had to purchase our salvation with His own body,flesh and blood.But Mary had the priviledge to experience salvation from sin through the Father,the prophet Isaiah calls the ONLY Savior.
Mary is blessed,beyond words with the magnitude of her salvation from sin,and being the Mother of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,who laid down His life for our salvation.It is doubly wondrous for Mary in that she experienced from the Father salvation,and she later watches her beloved Son go through the horrible torture of His entire being for the salvation of all humanity!

Being correctly educated is a problem....
When a person judges from experience and an incorrect education, the result is the quandry you find yourself in....Thus you can't research out the truth, and everything just "seems", or is an "opinion".
I am not worried about your writings. I am not worried about the Bible. But your answer, as you write..., "seem" to think I am.
I am in your debt however, as I am appreciating how much more progressive God is in dealing with "slavery" contrasted with other cultures at the time this verse(you like so much,lol)/law was given....Just a note, slavery as we perceive the word today is not the same as when this law was written.(I would explain further, but...,
since what I write means nothing to you. I will keep silent.)

Since you want this as a starting point for others, I will not comment.
#405958 Nov 30, 2012
that single paragraph should "fit" with the rest of the Bible, which is why the word "harmony" is used.
#405959 Nov 30, 2012
I kind of gathered in my imagination that Anthony, you would have a sense of humor.God bless you bro for that. No It is not the "nice Dan day". I still will contend that the RCC is just one of the siblings of Christian siblings.I do not believe that anyone is perfect,but Christ.However given the Word,we have no excuse to walk in total darkness as some have who claimed they know Christ.No matter who is the perpetrator,or by what name or affiliation he or she goes by,sin is sin,and it takes away from the Body of Christ. That is fact!
However you are right about one thing Anthony,the gift of God in preaching or presenting truth is irrevocable,and unfortunately men and women who were called to serve God,sinned greatly bringing shame,but the truth neverthless was presented by them.There are so many cases of that in all expressions of Christian endeavor,in all centuries since the beginning of our faith in HIM,who purchased us all with a great price.
I do believe that the C h u r c h is the whole body of Christ,fitly joined together as ONE building of God,not of hands but of His testimony in the faithful who believe Him for His Word,that includes all affiliations.You are bound to one institution of "Church",and that is your choice,and joy if you will.But I will not forsake in my heart and mind the whole body,just to cling to one segment of it.Truth is given in all facets of Christian life,and we have the WORD which is the blueprint of His WILL to the whole of humanity.I love the whole church,not just one segment of it,no matter Anthony who big that segment is.Even if it dwarfs the rest,it still is just part.Because if the truth be known Anthony it is those who walk in truth and are changed by it who are HIS Body.
It is so important to know Him,and our right to Him is because He first loved us,and our response to His love changes us,EXCHANGED Lives!
Remember the words of Jesus Himself as he told the Samaritan woman that "Those who worship the Father must worship Him in Spirit and in Truth."
Well we know that in reading the entirety of the New Testament that the Spirit is the Holy Spirit,and the Truth is Christ.So we must worship our heavenly RATHER in the Holy Spirit and in His Dear Son,Jesus Christ.HE knows His own Anthony,and that is not restricted to a particular group,denomination or affiliation,but it is in the BLOOD of His Son which is seen on the door posts of human hearts who yield their lives to Christ,and receive His salvation!
#405960 Nov 30, 2012
I used several verses in the NT to show that those in Samaria did not receive the Holy Ghost when they first believed and this is in harmony with those men in Ephesus who heard the gospel and believed and were Baptised yet had NOT received the Holy Ghost.
this also is in alignment with my own personal doctrine and beliefs, for two reasons.
it is how I received the Holy Ghost as a second definite Work of grace, and it is what the Bible Teaches.
therefore if adults who believed and didnt receive the Holy Ghost,while being Baptised.
how can a baby or an infant receive Him?
the answer is obvious, they cant and they dont.
#405961 Nov 30, 2012
FATHER not Rather. I think that I am becoming dislexic while typing these days.It is so easy to type errors.I use to type more than 50 words a minute,USE to that is the key here.
#405962 Nov 30, 2012
Well Anthony, your response did not tell the gospel story. But even with your partial statement, I whould say that it would be enough to generate more questions from one who was honestly seeking truth and salvation. Perhaps it would benifit you to read the bible stories of the preaching in the N.T. and see what the GOSPEL (in a concise paragraph; bandied about in some slogan) WAS that brought salvation to thousands and thousands.
#405963 Nov 30, 2012
Do you think that salvation is ALL there is to Christianity? Your question shows a definate lack of thinking and understanding as to what all the bible and Christianity consist of. As I am sure I have stated before you do not understand the difference between salvation and discipleship.
#405964 Nov 30, 2012
That is not the case with me brother! I have seen the transformation in your posts as to what God can do in a man like you. Praise God for His dealings with you,and what He has accomplished in and through you. If Paul the Apostle called himself a s l a v e of Christ,it is because he knew that our attitude toward Jesus should be as a slave who does everything to serve his master. However in the case of our Lord and Brother Jesus we are more than slaves,but brothers with Him,that is so wondrous isn't it?
The whole issue of slavery is really quite hard for us who never knew it to understand.We were slaves to sin though,and that can be how we identify with slavery as free men and women.
Did you see Lincoln yet? The movie of course. It is worth seeing if you haven't.
#405965 Nov 30, 2012
hey people, if you disagree. fine.
BUT BE AN ADULT AND ADDRESS ME INSTEAD OF HIDING BEHIND AN ICON.
IF you disagree, then tell me why and show me how that I am wrong.
that is why this is a forum so people can share ideas.
so if you need to use those icons in the future it will be because you are unable to match wits and Bible knowledge with me.

Whitehouse and Congress are willing to go anyplace to avoid “fiscal cliff” except; Complying with USA Labor Law, The Constitution, and demands of Natural Law: what Mother Nature, God, or Whatever Power decreed to be the reality of the real world, democracy, capitalism, the US Constitution, and free, fair, and affordable commerce and common sense demands.
Demands every Stockholder, corporation, farmer, business, outsourcer sweatshop, and nonprofit, tax-exempt, organization and Church; markets the cost in the wholesale and retail price of his or her product and service; of every worker, consumer, and taxpayer's wages (union contract), healthcare, pension, investment and independent business profit.
This enables every worker, consumer, and taxpayer to pay healthcare insurance premium or pay healthcare provider. Pay ALL taxes and pay for every product and service they use for life. With money derived from wages, investment profit, and independent business profit.
And enables every parent to educate, love, nurse, nurture, discipline, protect, and provide; for every child (job) they conceive. And fund schools, infrastructure, local and national security, government services, and etc.; with money derived from wages, investment profit, and independent business profit.

Stop the diversion. Of course something happened when so many people starred at the sun. Everyone saw something different. Some saw nothing at all.
"Not surprisingly, perhaps, Sun Miracles have been reported at other Marian sites—at Lubbock, Texas, in 1989; Mother Cabrini Shrine near Denver, Colorado, in 1992; Conyers, Georgia, in the early to mid-1990s". Nickell also suggests that the dancing effects witnessed at Fatima may have been due to optical effects resulting from temporary retinal distortion caused by staring at such an intense light"
Beyond the immediate area, nowhere else in the world was anything seen.
But that wasn't the point. The point is how the Vatican used three hysterical country girls for their own purposes.
In the process of making up lies for political purposes, they made Mary out to be demanding, threatening, and shameless.
#405968 Nov 30, 2012
A dancing sun is one thing.
Flat out lies are another.
Secret #1... Mary terrifies 3 little girls.
Secret #2... Vatican makes up absurd demands by Mary, which just happen to lend spiritual support for Hitler's recent invasion of commie Russia.
Mary is NOT a demanding, threatening, narcissist. The Vatican lies.
Secret #3... A big yawner, because the Vatican learned its lesson with their previous lies
