Baptism A Public Testimony
  
\\The way to salvation is to hear the word of God, believe it in your heart, repent, confess your sins, and be baptized\\

To say we must somehow "understand" to be saved, as you are saying here, is gnosticism.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Baptism A Public Testimony
  
It is clear that Christian baptism was done in at least semi-privacy from Acts 2 on. The Mikvaut of the Temple were obviously the place where the first 3000 Christian baptism were done, and these ritual baths for Temple worshippers were private, as you can find out for yourself.

Read such sources as the Didache and the Catechetical lectures of St. Cyril of Jerusalem.

BTW, the Didache mentions infant baptism.

While we're on the subject, NO sacraments were ever celebrated in the presence of non-Christians, as historical accounts show.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Samuel, two questions.

1. On which day of the week are we FORBIDDEN to worship God?

2. Should worship be only one day a week, and if so, why?

Glory to Jesus Christ!


Where Did Jesus Come From
  
Bravo, Samuel!

This is precisely what the Orthodox Church teaches.

kathr, it's very easy to lose track of who said what, or what is the subject of a given blog.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

mike, if people who worship in Sunday are worshipping the sun, then if you worship on Saturday, you are worshipping the planet Saturn.

Be consistent.

I might point out that in Orthodoxy, ideally there are daily services.

Can you give BCV that St. Paul NEVER worshipped on another day of the week?

I shall await with interest.

Glory to Jesus Christ!


Explain Acts 8:37
  
\\ Isaiah 53 is omited from some OT scriptures because some Jewish folks didn't want it in their scriptures. \\

Can you elaborate on this, such as telling us which MSS or printed versions of the
Tenakh omit it?

My understanding is that the standard rabinnic interpretation sees this passage as referring to the Jewish people as a whole, and no one in particular.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

\\believers who worship on 1st day are worshipping the sun.\\

WRONG AGAIN, as in much of what y ou say.

I know nobody who worships the sun. I know that I don't.

Synagogues, especially conservative and traditional ones have twice daily services all week long.

So give your evidence that St. Paul never worshipped on Sunday.

While you're at it, go to Ralph Woodrow's article that asks if Sunday worship came from paganism.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

I see that again you deflected, mike, and did not tell me if you personally knew any sun worshippers.

Are you so ignorant or brainwashed that you actually think that worshipping on Sunday means worshipping the sun?

Glory to Jesus Christ!


Explain Luke 1:26-28
  
It's a long standing tradition, StrongAxe.

Even Jean Chauvin (known more commonly as John Calvin) believed in Mary's perpetual virginity.

It's a good way of making sure the virginal conception and birth are true.

Glory to Jesus Christ!


God The Creator
  
I don't know anyone who worships the sun.

Do you, mike?

Glory to Jesus Christ!


Where Did Jesus Come From
  
\\
David, I'm not Protestant. \\

So are you a Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox, or Assyrian?

All that's left are the ancient Christological heresies.

Be specific, kathr.

Glory to Jesus Christ!


Do Beliefs Equal Salvation
  
Here's what I believe.

God is not finished with any of us yet. Not with you. Not with me.

Glory to Jesus Christ!


Fallen Humans Incarnation
  
I'm not trying to set off a flame war here, but merely to spark discussion.

Glory to Jesus Christ!


Happy Thanksgiving To All
  
The KKK was founded as the paramilitary/vigilante wing of the Democrats.

Explain Luke 1:26-28
  
I have never hidden that I have a special love for the Holy Mother of the Savior.

But I won't defend or discuss any Marian doctrine other than insisting that the Virgin's Son is God Incarnate.

This in itself is a new idea to some people on these blogs.

Mariology can be understood only in the context of Christology.

Glory to Jesus Christ!


God The Creator
  
Then, jerry, just why do ancient churches that had NOTHING to do with Rome or the Popes have Sunday as their main worship day?

Please answer.

Glory to Jesus Christ!


God The Creator
  
Notice how neither jerry nor Samuel answer my question about how worshipping on Sunday is not a papal invention, as the SDA claims.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Nicole, my point was trying to tell Stepheng that the genitals alone say what gender the person is.

How about the man with uterus and ovaries?

Glory to Jesus Christ!


Explain Acts 8:37
  
You've asked a good question, joseph.

Our English Epistle and Gospel books are based on the RSV, corrected according to the Greek liturgical books, which is yet a third text.

The OT of the Orthodox Church is the Septuagint.

The only modern English translation of it, to my knowledge, is sthe OT of the Orthodox Study Bible.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
