You think the thief might have been Baptized by John before being crucified?

He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit.

Who from the NT received salvation without baptism?
EVERYBODY.

Salvation comes from beleiving in Jesus Christa and Accepting His Sacrifice on the Cross of Calvary, when He shed His Blood for the sins of the Whole World.

the blood my fan, the Blood.

if is was only water, then His death was in vain. but the time came when the WORD of John Baptising for the remission of sin,

ENDED!!!!!!!!

how some time ago, old campbell and stone decided that they needed to go back in time and introduce Water Baptism again as the only way to gain admission into heaven.

and I must admit, that satan has reigned supreme in your church.SINCE THEN.

I am really amazed that catholics can think that that little flat piece(looks like paper) is comparable to what Jesus and his Friends ate that day.
Jesus took a loaf of bread and broke it, and then shared it with them, unlike the ritual the catholic use.
Its unimportant if you do not believe in the Bread and Wine like we do. Your opinion about it can be thrown into the pile of opinions of thousands of men like yourself. You guys live and die......and the Catholics still receive the Body and Blood of Our Lord at the Holy Mass, just like Christians did 2,000 yrs ago. Nothing will ever change until Christ returns.

show us where Peter spoke in tongues when Jesus breathed on him and he received the Holy Ghost.

that gift is for the unbelievers to show them that it is Real. it doesnt mean that all people speak in tongues.

MY EXPERIENCE IS WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE AND NOTHING WAS SAID IN JOHN 7 37-39 THAT I WOULD SPEAK IN TONGUES AND I NEVER HAVE

How are your sins forgiven, Preston???

Do you wish them away???

Do you write them down and put them in a bottle and send them by the seas???

Do you pray them away???

Do you hope that your sins will just go away and leave you alone???

How do you die to all of these sins???

Actually StarC my father never ever told me , Jesus loved me.
I am not pentecostal either.
I have told you many time I am not a believer in religious denominations.
Like HoJO keeps reminding us all there are 42,000. which ine is the right one None is my opinion.
I believe in Christ Jesus and the Grace of God. The more I read on here of the different denominations I can understand why people are so confused.
I am totally sold out to Jesus, And in awe of an awesome God.
and His Amazing Grace.
I pray I will never lose it, I wake at night thanking Him for what it has done in my life, and thank Him for all He has done and the prayers He has answered concerning my family.
I don't know who lil' Amiee is, I don't have a church, I have a
Savior who is the head of the Body of Christ.
Becareful StarC, your horns are starting to spout.
Remember God saves, all different kinds of people regardless of their sin, their religion, so there is still hope for you.
LOL, I’ve seen your horns, years ago.

Don’t warn me, warn yourself. You are still been a one women church.
Jesus started a Church, ONE Church, he didn’t want you to sit home alone and make up your own interpretation of Scripture.

Jesus told Peter “Build MY CHURCH”

BTW... Its 43,668 now - Sad.

Can't you see the confusion here??!!!

Old Covenant was no long in effect when Jesus DIED, and HE DIED BEFORE THE MALEFACTOR DID.

What is a Will?
A Will is a written legal document prepared for one person, called the testator, which sets forth what is to happen after death to his or her property, called the estate, and who is to be named as guardian to care for any minor children. The Will appoints a person called the personal representative (sometimes called the "executor"), who carries out the instructions in the will. A person receiving a gift from your estate is called a "beneficiary."

notice this legal description of a will and what happens after death. and notice also, it also provides for a{guardian} for minor children, WHICH JESUS SPOKE TO JOHN ASKING HIM TO TAKE CARE OF MARY AND HER MINOR(?) CHILDREN(works for me).

the malefactor died [after] the death of Jesus and therefore he was not under the old Covenant and why people say this is beyond me. ignorance. I guess.

According to St. John Chrysostom, the thief dwelt in the desert and robbed or murdered anyone unlucky enough to cross his path. According to Pope Saint Gregory the Great he "was guilty of blood, even his brother's blood; (fratricide)".[3][4][5]

The thief's conversion is sometimes given as an example of the necessary steps one must take to arrive at salvation through Christ: awareness of personal sin, repentance of sin, acceptance of Christ and salvation's promise of eternal life. Further, the argument is presented that baptism is not necessary for salvation since the thief had no opportunity for it.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Dismas .

and everybody ; DONT BELIEVE THE WORDS OF CLAY. THERE IS NO EVIDENCE THAT THIS NAME IS THE NAME OF THE MALEFACTOR. THIS NAME WAS GIVEN OVER 300 YEARS AFTER THE FACT AND IT ONE OF THEIR (TRADITIONS), NOT BASED ON BIBLICAL FACTS OR TRUTHS.

As someone who is catholic and was raised in the faith, I find this truly offensive that the Pope would make a statement like this. It is making me seriously consider leaving the church. As long as popele believe in God and the holy trinity, why does it matter whether they believe as catholics, methodists, lutherans, etc? I think Benedict has gone too far with this statement and I do believe it is going to hurt the catholic church in the long run.
I am a Catholic. I find it rather laudable. Why? The Pope, with his intelligence, cannot anymore refuse to accept the true Church founded by Jesus Christ 2000 yrs ago. No matter how much he thinks "it is not the case", he cannot change the truth by simply thinking "it is not the case". Cartesian thinking is a deception. Descartes says, "I think, therefore I am," meaning that thinking is the basis of whether he exists or not. In the same token, we cannot fashion a Church according to the way we "think" it to be. The pope has not gone too far; he has only voiced out -- what had been voiced out for centuries ago -- what the Church is as it is objectively in itself, not according to how many people "think" it should be. Before leaving the Church, it would be good to make first an exhaustive investigation of the history of the Catholic Church, with the history of philosophy (this is a great help). But, in the long run, it is the question of our souls that matters most. Let us not allow to lose it by allowing it to be disturbed and lost amid the havoc of this apocalyptic age. God bless!
