There are other baptisms, OldJG.....everyone needs to study them and know what their purposes are for...
Apparently you believe Paul was not telling us the truth in Ephesians 4:5, correct?

<quoted text> Wrong,do you think it's wrong to protect your family from terrorist, no and neither does God, and that's all he did, protect his people. Take your time and study and you'll see the true reason why God had to do what he did. What about when God ordered Joshua and his people to kill every man, woman and child in Canaan?14 What crime could be so great that entire populations of cities were designated for destruction? God told Moses that the nations that the Hebrew were replacing were wicked.15 How "wicked" were these people? The text tells us that they were burning their own sons and daughters in sacrifices to their gods.16 So we see that these people were not really innocent. For these reasons (and others17), God ordered the destruction of the peoples whom the Israelites dispossessed. Let God do what he knows to do better than we do and that's destroying evil people.
Pretty sure,everyone here has,been baptized,with water .or is,never going to get baptized .whatever you believe it does,..no one,here is going to go to your Church to get baptized,...really ..

Nothing against you or your Church ..happy you are,content and blessed .
Each of us,WHO BELIEVE in Christ ...has received the Baptism they believe in ...whatever role you feel it plays,..

I suggest that the preachers that were certain they spoke for Christ, believed that those who didn't speak "truth" for Christ ... were the anti-Christ.

When Luther was first a devout Catholic monk, he was convinced that the popes spoke truth straight from the MASTER of truth.

What did Luther suddenly see in the same words in the same bible that encouraged him to preach that the pope was suddenly the anti-Christ?

I suggest that Luther wanted to get married and also to be the LEADER of a new religion, foreign to Catholicism.

ALl Preachers that started a new religion,found it necessary to vilify the popular religion that came before.

The Jews with their one-god dogma vilified the Jews that believed in multiple gods.

Then the Catholics vilified the Jews that created the one-god dogma.

Then the Muslims vilified the Jews and the Catholics.

Then Martin Luther vilified the Jews, Muslim and Catholics et cetera.

And as those in religion vilified each other's religions, they ALL vilified Atheists for not believing in any of their religions.

And on and on it goes.

If baptism washes away sin do you believe it is a one time event? If baptism is to wash away sin, and is supposed to be a one time event, what happens when we sin after our baptism? According to your theology we should be baptized again to wash away the new sin. We all sin everyday therefore, according to Roman theology we should be baptized every day or perhaps several times a day. Maybe ALL DAY!
You know NOTHING of baptism. NOTHING!
Water baptism is how you come to be a Christian, after you become a Christian you have an advocate to the Father which is Jesus. We are to try and not sin but it isn't possible to not go through life without sinning. Now that you're a Christian and if you happen to sin you now can be forgiven but with the understanding that you're to try and do your best not to sin.

Congratulations Pope Francis. Keep up the good work.
When he steps down from his throne as a mortal men rather than a religious fortune-teller, that is when he will earn my respect.

As he contradicts more and more messages of the early popes, he simply indicates that he believes that those popes didn't speak for any master of truth whatsoever ... but actually were liars.

You are a liar, PREACHER.

Had Jesus lived, he would NOT have been true OR aligned to the will of Jehovah.

He would have been a traitor to Judaism ... as are YOU!

As long as you have free will to offend God again.. and again and again, no one time act will automatically save you. You need to endure to the end to be saved per scripture. That's why OSAS is ridiculous and many born again evangelicals don't even believe it. Catholics were born again when we were baptized. If we offend God we have the Sacraments of Confession and the Eucharist to amend our relationship. We can prove this is how the first and second century Christians understood the Gospel. Some heard it orally from the Apostles. You can't prove your theology ever existed until a couple hundred yrs ago. It doesn't seem to bother you one bit. You need to go to a pharmacist to get some cream for you itching ears.

Isn't THIS ironic and familiar?

The early church-fathers committed the same atrocity against the literature of the faithful Jews.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>

Eventually, other than the KJV, which they steadily attack and remove from book shelves, there will not be a Bible found anywhere on earth that has not been edited and changed to suit and fit the tastes of the Jews and homosexuals. Entire chapters and passages are being ripped out, modified, corrected, as newer versions are produced.

If you squabbling Catholics and Protestants ever decide for CERTAIN what Jesus the Jew believes ... THAT would indeed convince me that miracles DO exist.
May you all end up in the hereafter together in one container ... and take your damned-able ever-conflicting philosophies with you, and that way, you indeed will get your just rewards.
My friend miracles ceased when the last Apostle died. Miracles were used to spread the word of the ministry of Jesus because this is the best tool to get people's attention and that's why it was used. People lived long distances and miracles helped spread the word by getting people to run to other villages and spread the word that miracles were being performed and this was sure to get their attention then saying Jesus is having a garage sale. First Corinthians chapter thirteen, verses eight through ten, proves that miracles were not to be a permanent feature of Christianity. The apostle Paul wrote,“... But whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.” God does not fail. His knowledge will not vanish away. He is “the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; Who only hath immortality, dwelling in light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen”(I Tim. 6:15-16). But, the nine miraculous gifts of I Corinthians 12:8-10, referred to by a figure of speech known as synecdoche where a part stands for the whole in chapter thirteen, would cease to be utilized in the working of God in the church. Paul is the one who said miracles would “fail, cease, and vanish away.” Miracles ended with the death of the apostles, who alone could convey miraculous power by the laying on of their hands.

How absolutely funny.

Christians are disgruntled that the Jews would shape-shift words in Christian bibles. Yet they are happy and more than content that the Christians shape-shifted the religious literature of the early Jews.

Tit for tat isn't so funny when it occurs to what amuses and titillates the emotions of SELF.

I suggest that the only REASON that the popes are now trying to be nice to the Jews, is because they know their earlier teachings of hatred against the Jews is no longer acceptable to modern society.

Religion has the same qualities as chameleons. The preachers can and will change their colors (sermons) to suit the occasions.

According to your self-perceived HIGHNESS, were the supposed mindsets of the apostles Jewish in their religious natures, or of the newly converted to Christianity nature?

You are preaching nonsense.

Jews stay faithful to Judaism. They were and are NOT easily lead into "TEMPTATION" by Christians.
