The Holy Ghost Baptism does indeed change people and I was totally, 100% radically changed after I received the Baptism of the Spirit. How? I was able to love my enemies. I was able to easily forgive those who wrongfully accused me. I had power to pray in the Spirit according to Romans Chapter 8, with groanings too deep for human understanding. There's lots that the Baptism of the HS does. Water Baptism didn't change me, it was an outward sign of my repentence for my sins.

Scripturally speaking God told Jesus that He must be baptized to symbolizes the cleansing of his sins and acceptance of God as supreme in HIS reign. I was baptized due to obedience. If I hadn't gotten baptized I would have felt the process of what God wanted wasn't final. Trust and obey as well as belief in Jesus Christ. You can't get to the Father without understanding Christ too. Jesus was baptized because HIS FATHER wanted him to.....so therefore I got baptized as my leaders have done.

"I am talking about someone who specifcaly teaches that you cannot be saved if not baptized." ---Bruce, One who teaches that is not teaching doctrine that's in harmony with God's Word/Truth. I would never advise any one to go to a church that teaches that way, it's very dangerous, takes the emphases off of the necessity of the saving Blood of Jesus, once again only the Blood of Jesus can was away sin, and no one can get into God's Heaven without It. God Bless!

Mrs. Morgan,

"Some Christians are confused...but they feel like they are wrong if they never get baptized in water. "

Forgive me for belabouring the point but I am talking about someone who specifcaly teaches that you cannot be saved if not baptized. Not, should be baptized because it is right or must be baptized to be obedient and thus maintain your salvation (as opposed to loosing it through disobedience) but cannot be saved unless baptized.

BRUCE5656, What would I say about their salvation? It could range any where from highly questionable to non-existent. Only the Blood of Jesus can wash away sins. Water baptism is a outward expression of what has occurred on the [inside]. Some Christians are confused , they know that only the Blood of Jesus washes their sins away, but they feel like they are wrong if they never get baptized in water. People have misunderstood Jesus' Words many times. God Bless!

Mrs Morgan,
Thank you. What would you think about someone who believes that? What would that say about their salvation, if they beleived they could not be saved if they were not baptized in water?

"Do yo believe that a person cannot, be saved if they are not baptized in water. Not that they should be baptized or baptism is a matter of obedience, but that they must be, cannot be saved unless, baptized in water." --No, Bruce5656, I do not believe that if one has never been baptized in water, that they can't be saved/are not saved. God Bless!
---Mrs._Morgan on 1/13/07


Mrs Morgan,

Here is a question for you.

Do yo believe that a person cannot, be saved if they are not baptized in water. Not that they should be baptized or baptism is a matter of obedience, but that they must be, cannot be saved unless, baptized in water.

Change starts from the inside working it's way out. The outer part (flesh) doesn't change overnight. but the inner man changes instantly. At least I changed and I am glad I did.

Which baptism?
Baptism in the body at salvation? (Very young child) I Cor 12:13, Romans 6 Absolutly! At that point I became a son of God and joint heir with Jesus.

Baptism in water? Matt 28:19(16 years old) No change there, well I guess it washed some of the dust off. (It was in the country at a Christian camp.)
---Bruce5656 on 1/12/07




PART TWO:
Baptism in the Holy Spirit? Acts 1:5 (16 years old) Following my initial baptism in the Holy Spirit I became much more keenly aware of the importance of belief lining up with the Word. I went to see the minister of my chruch and questioned him about some things he taught that were contrary to scripture. He could not offer any satisfactory explainations and after a talking to my parents about it family moved to a church that was more in line with the bible.
---Bruce5656 on 1/12/07


PART THREE:
It marked a point in my life that began a period of witnessing more. I got involved with Youth With A Mission and Ambasadors In Mission.

Water baptism does indeed change people--but the change is invisible and interior.

Our duty is to live up to what is given us in baptism.
