Have you read John 21:15-17? The whol chapter really. There Jesus instructs Peter to take charge of the church ministry in his place and undertake the role of good shepherd in his place. He gives him the authority to rule his church. Not sure, how else could this passage of scripture be understood?
First how about you read it for the first time.

NO where in the text does it say Jesus instructs Peter to take charge of the Church Ministry you are taking huge liberties and read what you want into the text.

This clearly Jesus forgiving Peter for denying hime three times as he asks Peter three times do you love me.

It is Jesus's bestowing Mercy and restoration on Peter.

Jesus Reinstates Peter

Jn 21:15 When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter,“Simon son of John, do you truly love me more than these?”
“Yes, Lord,” he said,“you know that I love you.”
Jesus said,“Feed my lambs.”
Jn 21:16 Again Jesus said,“Simon son of John, do you truly love me?”
He answered,“Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.”
Jesus said,“Take care of my sheep.”
Jn 21:17 The third time he said to him,“Simon son of John, do you love me?”
Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time,“Do you love me?” He said,“Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.”
Jesus said,“Feed my sheep.
Jn 21:18 I tell you the truth, when you were younger you dressed yourself and went where you wanted; but when you are old you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will dress you and lead you where you do not want to go.”
Jn 21:19 Jesus said this to indicate the kind of death by which Peter would glorify God. Then he said to him,“Follow me!”
Jn 21:20 Peter turned and saw that the disciple whom Jesus loved was following them.(This was the one who had leaned back against Jesus at the supper and had said,“Lord, who is going to betray you?”)
Jn 21:21 When Peter saw him, he asked,“Lord, what about him?”
Jn 21:22 Jesus answered,“If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you? You must follow me.”
Jn 21:23 Because of this, the rumor spread among the brothers that this disciple would not die. But Jesus did not say that he would not die; he only said,“If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you?”
Jn 21:24 This is the disciple who testifies to these things and who wrote them down. We know that his testimony is true.
Jn 21:25 Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written

By the way, Peter never said you could get baptized and receive the Holy Ghost without repenting. And I never would've said he said that. I've posted the Acts 2:38 over and over and over...
If you would only read the verse for yourself Peter doesn't skip over *repent*. It's all in there.

Hey Saban fan, the problem is one does not receive the Holy Ghost from water baptism.
John tells us Jesus will baptize us with His Spirit and He is in Heaven, therefore that Baptism(the One that counts) does not come from water but from God only.
Your doctrine is no different than the catholics calling down Jesus to the wafer.
How do you know the Holy Ghost Peter says we receive at baptism is not The Spirit John spoke about?

Could they be one in the same - making both writers correct or are they separate making one of the writers wrong. If they're separate, Paul would also be wrong when he told the Ephesians there is ONE baptism.

The Bible will point us to the truth if we will only use it correctly. "Study to show thyself approved"

Jesus had to be glorified first.....

It was only after Jesus was glorified that He could send the Holy Spirit, and on Pentecost it was declared:

Acts 2:33

33 Exalted to the right hand of God, he has received from the Father the promised Holy Spirit and ~~~~~has poured out what you now see and hear.~~~~~

NOW SEE AND HEAR....

Go back to the beginning of Acts Chapter 2....

Apostles were BAPTIZED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT"....see and hear.....NO WATER at this type of baptism....

Marge,
You are so confused about the Holy Spirit and getting saved......
Sorry, but I just had to say that....
sorry hank, but it is YOU that know nothing about salvation. and that Salvation doesnt come by getting wet. several years ago, i asked you to find me ONE person that received the holy ghost as your church teaches and you could not.

and then you and I BOTH know how you acted after that, dont we?

you are a nice guy and very sincere, but you are wrong on this doctrine.

Why do so many in the denominational world expect to receive the baptism the Apostles received rather than submitting to the baptism the Apostles taught.

John's baptism pointed the way to it.

This makes three different baptisms being discussed in my post. Which "one" was Paul talking about later in Eph. 4? Is it the one the Apostles received, or would it logically be the one they taught? There are lots of examples of the one baptism the Apostles were teaching in Acts. That baptism is the "one" I submitted to.

the Holy Ghost is a Promise, but He only comes thru obediance and a willingness to sell out completely. he isnt given out like a person can go to wal mart and get Him. it take much more. read John again. John tells us, using the Words of jesus that only a person who is thirsting for His Righteousness will receive the Holy Ghost, and even people who get Saved dont receive the Baptism of the Holy Ghost, they receive the Spirit of Christ, which is promised to all beleivers.I realize this is well over your head but you need to learn
