17 And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said, Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mightest receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Ghost.
18 And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized.
don't you think that if Baptism was that important to the Salvation of Paul, that Jesus would have spoken it?

YOU can interpret this verse any way that you wish.

what is important is what the verse says, not what it doesn't say. which is why you are a catholic and I am a Christian.

<quoted text>There was a news worthy article that surfaced in Britain about thousands of English,Irish,Welsh and Scottish citizens who renounced their birth baptism into the Church of England,Scotland and Wales(also Ireland). Although those people were agnostic or atheist,they did have the right to challenge such things,as they were not given the choice as infants to accept or reject the Anglican or Presbyterian churches.
God wants us to know what kind of a decision we are making,when considering conversion to His Holy Name!
Church of England:
2. What is baptism?
"Baptism marks the beginning of a journey with God which continues for the rest of our lives, the first step in response to God's love." It is also a celebration, a time to come together with family and friends; remembering that your child is loved by God, is part of a wider community and has a place with God's people..

Don't see where that makes them a member of the Church of England...However and but....any Catholic has the God given right to deny his forced membership.....if and when their eyes/ears are opened....

Could you define the words "freaked out" from the dictionary....

evidently your language is no better than the others...

Pro 25:8 Go not forth hastily to strive, lest thou know not what to do in the end thereof, when thy neighbour hath put thee to shame.

Pro 25:9 Debate thy cause with thy neighbour himself; and discover not a secret to another:

Pro 25:10 Lest he that heareth it put thee to shame, and thine infamy turn not away.

Pro 25:11 A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.

Pro 25:12 As an earring of gold, and an ornament of fine gold, so is a wise reprover upon an obedient ear.

He,was alive ..I'm confused so I read it ..

Paul said his,soul was in Him. So it had not departed

Then it says they took him home alive ..

Now,only assuming Paul prayed to GOD to make Him well..But that makes,sense ..

See, you contradicted yourself. These verses are very clear, but you reject them.
2Tim 1:16-18 isn't quite as detailed. But we can use our God-given logic and draw the conclusion that Paul was speaking about a man who was no longer alive.

Clay, are you talking about Onesiphorus in 2 Timothy? St. Paul praying for the dead? If so, I just came across this which might help:

Onesiphorus and Paul’s Prayer for the Dead
http://www.catholic-convert.com/wp-content/up...

The article includes some quotes from protestants who interpret the passage the same way.

I've an Ignatius Catholic Study Bible here and Scott Hahn and Curtis Mitch also come to the same conclusion, that it's an early example of the Christian practice of praying for the dead.

No Pope has ever said, "Roman Catholic Church only true Church".
Anyway, scripture doesn't infallibly interpret itself. It takes an infallible body to interpret it.
Also, Jesus never left us with a list of Books to include in the future Christian Bible. Therefore, it took an infallible group to sit down and compile the list. Unfortunately for you, it was a Pope and other Bishops from the Catholic Church.

GOD'S WORD HAS GIVEN REFERENCE TO ONLY TWO DIVISIONS

THEY ARE JEWS AND GENTILES...

HE HAS CREATED NO OTHER..

AND BY THE BLOOD OF JESUS HE BROUGHT THEM TOGETHER AND CREATED ONE NEW MAN

Eph 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

Eph 2:11 Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;

Eph 2:12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:

Eph 2:13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.

Eph 2:14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;

Eph 2:15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;

Eph 2:16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:

Eph 2:17 And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.

THE only OTHER DIVISIONS

IN THE BIBLE IS

THE BORN AGAIN OF THE SPIRIT (received salvation) AND THOSE THAT ARE NOT

and only two destinies ...heaven to gain and hell to shun..

2Tim 1:16-18 isn't quite as detailed. But we can use our God-given logic and draw the conclusion that Paul was speaking about a man who was no longer alive.

----------
2Ti 1:16 The Lord give mercy unto the house of Onesiphorus; for he oft refreshed me, and was not ashamed of my chain:
2Ti 1:17 But, when he was in Rome, he sought me out very diligently, and found me.
2Ti 1:18 The Lord grant unto him that he may find mercy of the Lord in that day: and in how many things he ministered unto me at Ephesus, thou knowest very well.

Phm 1:10 I beseech thee for my son Onesimus, whom I have begotten in my bonds:
Phm 1:11 Which in time past was to thee unprofitable, but now profitable to thee and to me:
Phm 1:12 Whom I have sent again: thou therefore receive him, that is, mine own bowels:
Phm 1:13 Whom I would have retained with me, that in thy stead he might have ministered unto me in the bonds of the gospel:
Phm 1:14 But without thy mind would I do nothing; that thy benefit should not be as it were of necessity, but willingly.
Phm 1:15 For perhaps he therefore departed for a season, that thou shouldest receive him for ever;
Phm 1:16 Not now as a servant, but above a servant, a brother beloved, specially to me, but how much more unto thee, both in the flesh, and in the Lord?
Phm 1:17 If thou count me therefore a partner, receive him as myself.
Phm 1:18 If he hath wronged thee, or oweth thee ought, put that on mine account;

What makes you think that Onesimus was dead?

God has not named any certain group denomination of sect dominion over another.

He has not designated or given any religious group authority to rule over his Church on the earth...

Fact is

Jesus told his apostles.. the exact opposite

Luk 22:24 And there was also a strife among them, which of them should be accounted the greatest.

Luk 22:25 And he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are called benefactors.

Luk 22:26 But ye shall not be so:

but he that is greatest among you,

let him be as the younger; and

he that is chief, as he that doth serve.

Luk 22:27 For whether is greater,

he that sitteth at meat,

or he that serveth?

is not he that sitteth at meat?

but I am among you as he that serveth.

Luk 22:28 Ye are they which have continued with me in my temptations.

Luk 22:29 And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me;

Luk 22:30 That ye may eat and drink at my table

in my kingdom, and

sit on thrones judging

the twelve tribes of Israel.
