that day....they were baptized....
Correct, and I like how you made sure they were aware that they didn't tarry, they done it immediately. As you are probably aware that all the baptism were done immediately, which is a good point to show to people, because some denominations, such as the Baptist will have you wait a week or two before they baptize you, which isn't sound doctrine at all.

John the Baptist baptism was for repentance.....
Could his baptism (John's) save us from our SINS? NO!!!!!!!!!!
It is being baptized INTO the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This is the Gospel of Christ Jesus...the good news, Preston.....
after they were filled with the Holy Ghost(Born Again), then were they Baptized. NOT BEFORE HANK AND YOU KNOW IT, QUIT TRYING TO DECEIVE.

Baptized after they were Believers, who heard and accepted the Word. if water had Saved them, God could have just sent rain on them. which reminds me, He stopped the rain when I was going to be Baptized(9 months and 3 days after I was Saved), and after the baptism(9 months and 1 day after I was filled with the Holy Ghost), the rain came back down.lol.

I had my Spiritual Experiences in accordance with those in the Bible.

Believed, filled with the Holy Ghost, and then Water Baptism. that is the perfect Experience with the Walk with God.

No water saving and no piece of grain. no prayers to any dead person.

Why do you ignore my question???
Within the theology ... was Jesus baptized by John as a Jew or a Catholic or a Protestant???
Come ON ... bible "EXPERT???"
~~~

NEITHER ONE...

HE WAS BAPTIZED TO "fulfil all righteousness."

Mat 3:14 But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?
Mat 3:15 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.

WE SHOULD FOLLOW JESUS' EXAMPLE...

HE SAID IN

Mat 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

Mat 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Heb_5:9 And being made perfect, he/JESUS became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;

Heb_12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Joh 3:22 After these things came Jesus and his disciples into the land of Judaea; and there he tarried with them, and baptized.

Joh 4:1 When therefore the Lord knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John,
Joh 4:2

NOTE (Though Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples,)

JESUS SAID

Mar_16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

BAPTISM WITH OUT REPENTANCE FIRST...IS NOTHING MORE THAN TAKING A BATH..

BAPTISM WITH REPENTANCE IS CEREMONIAL CLEANSING..

but they didn't belong to any church nor did Peter try and shoved the Campbellite church at them.lol

it makes no difference when a Born Again Believers gets Baptized, in fact the Scripture shows that the Spirit will flow from breast to breast but it does not say that any water will flow from breast to breast.

that indicates to me, that the Spirit is important to God, the water baptism is important to show People that you now belong to the Lord. while the Spirit shows that God belongs to YOU.

Jehovah does not divide his emotions among Jews Catholics and Protestants. Not to even mention the Muslims that are waiting for the 12th Imam.

If you don't believe me, just ask Jehovah and he'll tell you ... straight OUT. Or at least that's what I heard just now via the telegraph from the sky!

You are such a fibber.

The Catholics wrote the new testament. Protestants had NO part in it whatsoever, and we all KNOW the story that unless people are baptized into the Catholic faith, they can't go to Christian heaven. Of the Abrahamic religion ... THAT excludes Protestants AND Jews AND Muslims.

I suggest you get your stories straight!

Protestants keep trying to horn in on Catholic doctrine as though THEY were the first there and so they should be the first ones SERVED.

Religion doesn't work that way.

The Catholics manipulated the doctrines of the Jews ... then the Muslims manipulated the doctrines of Jews AND Catholics ... and then the Protestants manipulated that doctrines of the Jews, the Catholics and the Muslims.

Concerning the manipulation-factor ... it's all a matter of getting in line.

Then ... if we go back further in doctrine-manipulation ... we will find where the Jews manipulated the doctrines of the Hebrews, who were at one time polytheists, believing in many gods and many wives.

The Hebrew Goddess

Asherah, known as the "Lady of the Sea"

Asherah, the Shekinah, consort and beloved of Yahweh. God-the-Mother. Her sacred pillars or poles once stood right beside Yahweh's altar, embracing it. Moses and Aaron both carried one of these Asherah "poles" as a sacred staff of power. The Children of Israel were once dramatically healed simply by gazing at the staff with serpents suspended from it. This symbol, the snakes and the staff, has become the modern universal symbol for doctors and healers.* Asherah was also widely known in the Middle Eastern ancient world as a Goddess of Healing. Then She was removed forcibly from the Old Testament Hebrew Scriptures around 400 or 500 B.C.

The Shekinah is held by many to represent the feminine attributes of the presence of God (shekhinah being a feminine word in Hebrew), based especially on readings of the Talmud and the Kabbalah. The word 'Matronit' is also employed to represent this usage. Comparative Religionists suggest a comparison to shakti, the female energy of Hindu gods, and to the Christian concept of the Holy Spirit.

I keep suggesting that people should study religion from the outside in, rather than from inside the individual cults ONLY ... but my suggestions fall on deaf ears.

All people raised to have faith in only their own doctrines, will place value ON ONLY their own doctrines.

But there is a big world of differences within the beliefs of those in religions ... and only by study of the many religions from an objective point of view can we learn about those differences, and the REASONS for the differences.

The following list give a summation of what we have been trying to emphasize. If the Bible is a Catholic book,
1. Why does it condemn clerical dress?(Matt. 23:5-6).
2. Why does it teach against the adoration of Mary?(Luke 11:27-28).
3. Why does it show that all Christians are priests?(1 Pet. 2:5,9).
4. Why does it condemn the observance of special days?(Gal. 4:9-11).
5. Why does it teach that all Christians are saints?(1 Cor. 1:2).
6. Why does it condemn the making and adoration of images?(Ex. 20:4-5).
7. Why does it teach that baptism is immersion instead of pouring?(Col. 2:12).
8. Why does it forbid us to address religious leaders as "father"?(Matt. 23:9).
9. Why does it teach that Christ is the only foundation and not the apostle Peter?(1 Cor. 3:11).
10. Why does it teach that there is one mediator instead of many?(1 Tim. 2:5).
11. Why does it teach that a bishop must be a married man?(1 Tim. 3:2, 4-5).
12. Why is it opposed to the primacy of Peter?(Luke 22:24-27).
13. Why does it oppose the idea of purgatory?(Luke 16:26).
14. Why is it completely silent about infant baptism, instrumental music in worship, indulgences, confession to priests, the rosary, the mass, and many other things in the Catholic Church?

Did a Jew command Catholics, and Protestants to be circumcised???

If so, I've never known a Rabbi who sticks his nose into Catholic and Protestant churches to command them to be circumcised.

It seems that you are stretching your imaginary story along with imaginary foreskins.

Infants were circumcised on the eighth day, the reason for waiting eight days is because God knew that the clotting process didn't become functional until that time.

I suggest the Protestants had no right to horn in on a Catholic book.

Horny old Martin Luther should have written his own bible, while he was marrying his nun and starting a new religion with new messages he supposedly received from Jehovah ... the one Abrahamic God.

Dogma theft was a common occurrence that ought to have been against the law.

But then, had that occurred ... religion would have had to start each time again from "scratch."
