How To Baptise

Is it wrong to baptise in the name of the father, sun, and holy ghost.

Moderator - Yes, we should not worship the "sun" god, but instead the "Son". Should be the Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

To be baptized in the Holy Spirit and to be filled with Him are two different things. Baptism is an external event the person or the organization are completely immursed in something, water or the Holy Spirit. To be filled is internal, it happens on the inside. I like to eat but what I get on the outside of me does nothing toward filling my insides. 125 words are not enough to explain it, I am sorry.
The church, congregation, was immursed in the Holy Spirit on Pentecost, Individuals are filled with the Holy Spirit at salvation. Note if something is full it can hold no more.

Baptisms should be for the believers and followers of Jesus Christ. But you shall be baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost for the remission of sins. Baptism is for those worthy and mature enough to know the difference between right and wrong. That is the age of 8years old. So the baptisms of babies is not only wrong, its a waste of time.

Baptism is a response of the believer to the understanding of the Gospel of Jesus Christ- not the removal of the filth of the flesh- but of the conscience of the believer in response to the grace of God. My vote is to follow the book of Acts, we have a clear pattern of preaching and response there. We pray in Jesus name
whatever we do in word or deed in Jesus name.
Baptism is both in word and deed.

I agree with Moderator. It says in the bible how to be baptised and that is the only way. The Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.

It is proper to be baptized in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost. Instructions for this are in the Scriptures in Matthew. It is also proper to be baptized in the name of Jesus. Nine times in the book of ACTS people were baptized in the name of Jesus. So you can take your pick I assume since both are scripturally correct.

I believe we should be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Jesus told the disciples in Mark 28, verse 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.(This verse is in red, Jesus himself as he spoke to his disciples). I believe Jesus to us as Christians is our Father, Jesus was the Son, and the Holy Ghost is his spirit he sent as our comforter after he ascended to Heaven-Jesus is the name. It does say baptize in the name of.

The baptism in Matthew 28:19 and Acts 2 are sometimes misunderstood. The baptism in Acts 2 was for the remission of sins for the Jews. In Matthew 28:19 it was for believers. If you read in Acts 2 you'll see that it was for the remission of sins. When we get saved we are not getting baptized for the remission of sins, but as an outward showing of what happened on the inside. Romans 10:9-10 and John 3:3-7 talk about the new birth or being born again.

Ex.3:14'God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am.'
Ex 3:15'. . .This is my name forever, the name which I am to be remembered from generation to generation.'
Ex. 6:3'. . .but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them.'
Get baptized in a church and you will hear 'In the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost I baptize you for the remission of sins.'
Well, what is the name?

In the Gospels Jesus directs his disciples to baptize in the NAME of the Father, & of the Son, & of the Holy Ghost. I am a father, a son, & have a spirit (ghost), yet my name is Michael. That said, I suggest that you go forward to see what these disciples did with Jesus's instruction. Read the book of Acts(of the Apostles) such as Acts 2:38, et al. The intrepretation of this is as split as is the one God vs triune God. Which ever you are lead to by YOUR revelation of God's word is what you should use.

Being filled with the Holy Spirit should be an everyday thing for every christian. It comes by spending time in prayer(Jude 20) The purpose for the baptism in the Him, the Holy Spirit, is for prayer(Jude 20), witnessing(Acts 1:8), praise & worship
---RIckey on 3/2/06




Being filled w/ & being baptized in the Him, the Holy Spirit are two separate things, but are usually used meaning the samething. Being baptized in the Holy Spirit comes with the evidence of speaking in other tongues & Jesus does the baptizing.(Mark 1:8; Luke 3:16;John 1:33)

No it isn't wrong to baptize in the name of the Father, Son. & Holy Ghost. It's scriptural to do so.(Matthew 28:19)
