So cluny Is still getting his modern form info from the learned heresy sabellian book of cluny.

I thank God it's you & Not me.
---Lawrence on 8/27/10


Yes & no. Let me explain... if your original baptisim was for membership & not for Jesus, otherwise you did it just to "belong" to a church, then yes you should get re-baptized for knowing the reasons for being a true christian.
then there is NO. If your original baptisim was for Christ only & membership came later with a congregation, then there is no need for another baptisim.Tell them you already got accepted in Gods eyes according to scripture & there is no need for another one. If they do not accept that then maybe you should find a bible based congregation accepting you for you.

\\The One God Jesus name Church of The Living God & Oneness Is True, The same as The Early Church Is Alive & well today. \\

You're right.

The Early Church is alive and well.

Its name is the ORTHODOX Church.

You're just a modern form of the heresy of Sabellian modalism.

For what Jesus said & the Apostles said Are in line, or what the Apostles said wouldn't be in the Word of God. For what God gave Apostle Peter to preach, God didn't Apostle Steven something else to preach or even Apostle Paul, it was All the same, Acts 2 v 38. The early Church.

The trin teachings came from here 2nd.Cor.11 v's 14 - 15 started with the trin rcc & went down through her daughters churches. Again, there is No one found in the N - Testament scriptures baptized in the titles. That IS the trin - churches doings. To deny The Early Church, Acts 2 v 38.
---Lawrence on 8/27/10




Lawrence:

Evidently you think what you infer from the Apostles' words (not their words, but what you infer from them) to be more important than Jesus's specific words.

This is just like what the Pharisees did - they went by the teachings of their traditions (written by wise men who supplied their own interpretations of what Moses said) - rather than by what Moses ACTUALLY said.

I personally have no love of the Roman Catholic church - I believe that much of what it teaches is wrong and inconsistent - so I am not saying any of this to defend them. I am just going by what the Jesus ACTUALLY said, and I suggest that you do the same.

---Lawrence on 8/26/10


Lawrence:

You repeatedy say people who say THE VERY WORDS Jesus commanded, do so in vain. I showed you what you do (saying other traditions supercede Jesus) is exactly what you accuse the RCC of, and what Jesus accused the Pharisees of (Mark 7:7-13). Yet you never address this issue, but rather just keep repeating the Oneness party line.

You continuously use pre-packaged cliche phrases such as "The One God Jesus name Church of The Living God & Oneness" and "Man - made trin relig - org". This sounds very much like someone who blindly repeats propaganda, rather than thinking for himself. In effect, "My mind is made up. Don't confuse me with the facts."

I am assuming here that before you changed denominations you had faith in jesus and kept his commandments.
Now you have received a better understanding of scriptures your beliefs have changed, but not your faith. You still believe that jesus died for you and will save you.

This is where it gets complicated:
If you did not receive the holy spirit (not talking in tongues) you need to get rebaptized.
If you were living in sin before you changed denominations, you need to get rebaptized.
---francis on 8/26/10




the grass does not get any greener on any side of water baptism.

if you show spiritual fruit where there once was none, Jesus will recognize your baptism in Spirit. if you don't, then He won't.
---aka on 8/26/10


Lawrence:

I have repeatedly shown you what Jesus ACTUALLY COMMANDED word for word. Yet you continue to believe that the few examples by the Apostles rendered Jesus's command null and void (since you keep insisting that anyone who ACTUALLY OBEYS JESUS and uses his OWN EXACT WORDS is performing an empty and meaningless ritual).

By teaching that Jesus's own words have been rendered null and void and replaced by subsequent different teachings of others, you commit EXACTLY the same kind of revisionism that you accuse the Roman Catholic church of.

Still Wrong & False again.

The Early Church & Oneness Acts 2 v 38 used Jesus name baptism & made the devil mad. So he used the romans etc for the up - coming Man - made trin rcc Rev.17 v's 4 - 6 to stamp out Oneness & Jesus name baptism. The trin rcc they Are the ones started using the so called Father - Son & Holy spirit baptism. Again, you find me 1 in the N - T scriptures that was baptized that way. Then yr's later aft the dark - ages,

The Light of Jesus name & Oneness came to mankind again, the conclusion of The Early Church Is still alive & well today.

Do you have a unlearned book or books of st - ax?, throw it or them away.
---Lawrence on 8/26/10


Lawrence:

The New Testament gives a handful of examples of people being baptized by the Apostles, yet it also mentions that many thousands were baptized. From this, we must infer that there were many thousands of baptisms performed whose specific details were not recorded in the New Testament. Just because the few examples we have in the New Testament use a different formula than Jesus himself laid down in no way proves that Jesus's formula was never used, or that it is invalid.

I replied once & it didn't get posted.

I am being consistent, your just misinterpreting.
Jesus was Right in what He said, go ye therefor baptizing etc, & Apostle Peter went therefor & Fulfilled what Jesus said to do, Acts 2 v 38 Fulfills Matt.28 v 19.

Again you read from Matt.28 v 19 to the end of Jude & find me 1 that was baptized in the titles. The False trin - churches Rev.17 v's 4 - 6 doing such just in the titles, that's Right, they go down a dry sinner & come up a wet sinner, they just got wet.
---Lawrence on 8/25/10


You misquoted a word in your post. Do you mean "baptized"? If so--I would say sure. Why not? There is no limit on how many times one can be baptized. Have not seen this in the bible. I would suggest everyone be baptized every few years or so. Another dip could only help and not hurt.

According to Rabbi Robyn.

One god One spirit One baptism, How many times did Jesus demonstrate the followers get baptised?

Who got baptised twice?

No One in scripture!

lawrence:

You said: Apostle Peter fulfilled what Jesus said to do. Jesus & Apostle Peter Are both Right. You & others can deny all you want.

But earlier you said: If you was baptized in the titles, you went down a dry sinner & came up a wet sinner. Nothing happed, you just got wet.

You are being inconsistent.

On the one hand, you are admitting that Jesus was right when he said to baptize "in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost". But on the other hand, you said that if you do this, nothing happens. So which of these two is it? You can't have it both ways!

Lawrence:

So let me get this straight: Are you saying that the words of Peter in Acts 2:37-41 supercede an nullify the words of Jesus in Matthew 28:19-20? And that if we obey Jesus's words rather than Peter's we're doing it all wrong and nothing happens?

Also remember that Jesus's word are a COMMAND to all believers, while Peter's words were merely the formula he happened to use at that particular time, and NOT a specific teaching about HOW to baptize.

You can believe that Jesus was right and that Peter was wrong. You can believe that Jesus and Peter were both right. But if you're a Christian, you CANNOT believe that Peter's way of doing something is right and Jesus's is wrong.

NO! Once is enough. All that's for is to tell publicly anyone who cares, that you have been saved. Unless you are planing on getting saved every time you change denominations! I would recommend that you do not develop that mind set.

Acts 2 v's 37 - 41 Fulfills Matt.28 v's 19 - 20. Jesus Is The name of The Father, Jesus Is The name of The Son & Jesus Is The name of The Holy Ghost.

Being baptized in the titles you go down a dry sinner & come up a wet sinner. Nothing happened, you just got wet.

Being baptized In The name Jesus Christ, that name Is applied to your soul. If Acts 2 v 38 was wrong then it wouldn't be in The Word of God to do.



---Lawrence on 8/23/10


Lawrence:

If you look in Acts, the Apostles always baptised "in the name of Jesus". But if you look at what Jesus ACTUALLY commanded them to do:

Matthew 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"

If there is a discrepancy between Jesus and the Apostles, which one do you think is more likely to be right? Either Jesus was right and the Apostles were wrong, or they were both right, and making the distinction is choking on a gnat that neither of them had problems with - in either case, the trinitarian formula is fine.

Unless you were involved with a cult that did not require you to be baptised no.

If you got saved and followed the basic christian command to be baptisedimersed in water, you repent if you came away from the faith. You baptise in Christ once, any denomination that requires you to rebaptise is a cult knowing that you have already batised under the christian faith following the Holy Bible doctrine.

Lawrence, the Name that Jesus commanded us to be baptized in is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Jesus is neither the FAther nor is He the Holy Spirit.

This is the doctrine of Sabellian modalism, named for Sabellius, the first one to preach this heresy.

Sabellius, btw, was a presbyter of Rome! He was deposed and excommunicated for teaching a doctrine that NOBODY had heard of before.

Think about it--the doctrine you cling to was invented in ROME.

Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?

Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.

Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

God Bless You

Scriptural baptism is a one-time event. The ordinance was commanded by the Lord after His resurrection (Mk 16:16) as an essential part of the gospel of Jesus Christ...

"he that believes and is baptized ...shall be saved"

"These words are very important. The first clause [belief and baptism] opposes the notion that faith alone is sufficient for salvation, without those works which are the fruit of faith" ~ Pulpit Commentary
---Tim_Byars on 8/30/09


Salvation comes by grace, when one is justified by faith. Water baptism is commanded but not prerequired, anymore than you must take Communion before you can go to heaven. The Holy Ghost is sent by the Father to "anyone" who asks for Him! You must ask, and that's it! I recommend being baptized and taking Communuion in a bible-teaching church, but not for salvation.
CHARIS in Greek (grace) means "gift."
---jeff on 6/23/09


My pastor had me get rebaptized after I had been backslidden for a long time in order to rededicate my life to the Lord, but it wasn't really a neccessity. If you've never received full submersion baptism, then you should. When it's all said and done, it's really just an act of obedience and faith. Think of it as the starting line for the race. It represents your death and resurrection with Christ. Just like when a baby is born. The mother's water breaks and the baby takes his/her first breath. You're born again.
For those who think I may have contradicted myself from earlier bloqs, I didn't. God bless!

Baptism can be done over and over again. This is a personal decision. Can't do any harm. I was baptised as a child ,had no memory of it. Chose to be re baptized as an adult. I feel better and am glad I did. I know that I know, that I know. You have to be convinced in your heart and spirit. I would say go for it!
I do not believe in baptizing/sprinkling babies,either. Dedicating babies to the Lord is acceptable.
---Robyn on 12/6/08


There must first be a profession of faith on the part of an individual that he or she has trusted completely in the atoning death, burial and resurrection of the Messiah (Christ), There must also be a definite commitment to our LORD as the redeemer of our soul, i.e. you must receive Y'shua (Jesus) as LORD. In The Gospel according to John 1:12 we read the following, "But as many as received Him, to them gave He the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His Name:", did you notice that Baptism is nowhere in sight in this Scripture, and the reason is, that Baptism does not save anyone. We are saved by 'receiving' and 'believing' on His Name, that is, Y'shua (Jesus). Now you are ready for Baptism by immersion.

Are you not Baptized in the Holy Ghost yet?

Have you not been visited by Him and taught the things that are hidden from the minds of man?

Thank You Father for finding me worthy of such a Blessing as that, and at such a young age(12)too...

He has visited you too, Because, NO man can call upon the Lord unless the Holy Ghost put's it upon their Heart to do so!

Come, let us rejoice in the Name of the Lord Yahshua/Jesus and pray for the fulfilling of God's words(the out pouring of HIS Holy Ghost)and that we may soon be with him,
I ask this Father, in the name of your Son Yahshua, Fulfill thy WILL, Amen!

If a person dies before they can be baptised, that is one thing. But if one knows that Jesus wants them to be baptised into Him and choses not to because they do not feel like it - that is quite something else. Obedience to God's will is a sure sign of faith. Without that, you do not have faith, only lipservice and that does not get you into heaven.
---lorra8574 on 10/17/07


Three reasons why a person must be baptised. One, Christ set an example for all Christians and was baptised. Two, the Apostles taught baptism. And three, It's written there in the bible in black and white to believe and get baptised. As for infants being baptised, they have no concept of God, Jesus, believing, nor the environment around them. One must have knowledge first before they can believe something. There is first the knowledge of God, then belief, then acknowledging the truth and then baptism.

We should not forget Paul's own baptism - Acts 9:18-19, he arose and was baptised and then ate meat - apparently he was baptised indoors or close by the house while standing up. The jail guard of Acts 16:33 was near enough to water to wash their wounds and to be baptised, and after they went in to eat, but were they on the river bank? Also all of his family was also baptised as were many other households - indicating that any children were also baptised - otherwise this would have been mentioned.

Baptism does not clean your life up repentance and biblical education does. The act is being obedient and doing countless times is not biblical.. RE-write the bible why don't you! this is a false doctrine and proves nothing other than you messed up or made a major mistake. If you baptised into a false religion then became a Christian fair enough but as long at the Church preaches from the Holy Bible and in line with the word of God there really is no need.

Peaches, I had a similar experience with a UPC church where I was pressured to get rebaptized. My baptism in the Baptist church had no validity to them and they told me God would really touch me if I would be baptized in Jesus name. I left the church and have not talked to those people since then. I feel no guilt or remorse about it. In fact, the thought of being rebaptized and denying the Trinity makes me sick to my stomach. I was much more at peace when I left that church.
---MichelleS on 10/15/07


Peaches,

Some denominations (such as the Baptist) do not accept other denominations baptisms, for various scriptural reasons.

1. Were you baptized in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost? (Matt. 28:19).
2. Were you immersed or sprinkled? John the Baptist baptized in Aenon because there was much water. (John 3:23). After Christ was baptized he came up out of the water (Mrk 1:10).
3. The one performing the baptism must have the proper authority. (Luke 20:2-4)
---trey on 10/15/07


Peaches, 2

"Re-baptism" is scriptural - the Apostle Paul "re-baptized" some men at Ephesus (Acts 19:1-7). They had not been properly baptized.

Do you believe the church you are joining is the "true church" established by Christ, or is it just a church?

Are you are satisfied with your baptism? If you are then why are you looking to change denominations?

Hope that helps.
---trey on 10/15/07


It generally depends on the rules of the denomination, but the Bible says ONE Lord, ONE faith, ONE BAPTISM.

It should be repeated ONLY if there is serious doubt about its not having been validly administered the first time, generally if water or the three Persons of the Trinity were not mentioned.

No. You should get baptized again because you want to. Not because of a denomination. Baptism shows good conscience toward God. It doesn't save you by no means.
---Rebecca_D on 10/15/07


From a Catholic perspective, if you were baptised with the proper formula given by Christ, then you were baptised into Christ, not one particular denominaion. My church recognises all such baptisms as valid and do not require re-baptism for such converts. However, if a particular church does not recognise the Trinity or use that formula, or views baptism as strictly a "membership" thing, then yes you should be rebaptised properly in a Christian church.

No, it's got nothing to do with denomination. God looks at His Son Jesus Christ to see if you are in Him. Water baptism is symbolic of what has already occurred when one becomes born-again, i.e. crucified with Christ, buried with Christ and risen in Christ in newness of life.

As a mormon I was baptized and even though I had said I was being baptized into Christ not a church I was rebaptized into the Christian faith.

If I had felt comfortable after learning that LDS are a cult it wasn't necassary but why not?

God does not recognize denomination.
He recognizes your "Spirit and soul"
