Since you don't believe what Jesus said, try this source:

Martin Luther

"Baptism is no human plaything but is instituted by God himself. Moreover, it is solemnly and strictly commanded that we must be baptized or we shall not be saved. We are not to regard it as an indifferent matter, then, like putting on a new red coat. It is of the greatest importance that we regard baptism as excellent, glorious, and exalted" (Large Catechism 4:6).

"Christians have always interpreted the Bible literally when it declares, "Baptism ... now saves you, not as a removal of dirt from the body, but as an appeal to God for a clear conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ" (1 Pet. 3:21; cf. Acts 2:38, 22:16, Rom. 6:3–4, Col. 2:11–12)."

You quote Luther as tho he was a Protestant and then add the source as the Roman Catholic Large Catechism 4:6. Who gives a rip what Luther said? He was just a Roman Catholic priest anyway.

More Roman Catholic theological nonsense.

Every time in the Bible.....EVERY TIME.....then is a profession of faith prior to baptism. It is not baptism first and then a profession of faith. If you don't believe me ..... read the BIBLE!

Have You Come to “When” Yet?

2013


The Lord restored Job’s losses when he prayed for his friends —Job 42:10

A pitiful, sickly, and self-centered kind of prayer and a determined effort and selfish desire to be right with God are never found in the New Testament. The fact that I am trying to be right with God is actually a sign that I am rebelling against the atonement by the Cross of Christ. I pray,“Lord, I will purify my heart if You will answer my prayer— I will walk rightly before You if You will help me.” But I cannot make myself right with God; I cannot make my life perfect. I can only be right with God if I accept the atonement of the Lord Jesus Christ as an absolute gift. Am I humble enough to accept it? I have to surrender all my rights and demands, and cease from every self-effort. I must leave myself completely alone in His hands, and then I can begin to pour my life out in the priestly work of intercession. There is a great deal of prayer that comes from actual disbelief in the atonement. Jesus is not just beginning to save us— He has already saved us completely. It is an accomplished fact, and it is an insult to Him for us to ask Him to do what He has already done.

If you are not now receiving the “hundredfold” which Jesus promised (see Matthew 19:29), and not getting insight into God’s Word, then start praying for your friends— enter into the ministry of the inner life.“The Lord restored Job’s losses when he prayed for his friends.” As a saved soul, the real business of your life is intercessory prayer. Whatever circumstances God may place you in, always pray immediately that His atonement may be recognized and as fully understood in the lives of others as it has been in yours. Pray for your friends now, and pray for those with whom you come in

like Marge just told you. that verse has NOTHING to do with Water Baptism.

born of water. your birth into this world.

born of spirit. your birth into His heavenly Kingdom.

every Christian will tell you the same thing on here, and you think we all disagree about everything.lol

I sincerely believe what Jesus said, but luther is just a man with his own agenda and opinion. and as such I dont believe he is correct.

it took a lawyer to stop and relaize what Jesus wa talking about and even then he questioned his thoughts wondering how he COULD BE BORN PHYSICALLY AGAIN.

so stop and think about what his words were implying and you will see the ignorance of martin luther.lol..

and as a clincher, I wouldnt trust any man who goes around constantly scratching his rectum, not to mention a man with Minears Disease from his many escapades with young women

No, Jesus didn't say that unless a man be born on Earth and then be born of spirit, he can't enter Heaven.

What utter nonsense.

No Christian believed that until the Reformation, and no real Christian believes it now.

Luther here agrees with Jesus, the Apostles and all of Christendom until the Reformation.

What's your take on all those folks and their "agendas", starting please with Jesus?
