Baptist Versus Pentecostal
Trav, i have know idea what you are trying to say. Verbal gymnastics and philosophy is a waste of time when it come to the Bible. I take Christ seriously so i don't waste time.

Baptist Versus Pentecostal
Warick, I believe in God the Father, there is no God the Son. That terminology is not in the Bible. Jesus is the Son of God, and you don't find God the Holy Spirit in the Bible either. You also wont find the term God in 3 persons. The Bible declares 1 God, so do I. Jesus is his name. Yes on the throne in Revelation you will see 1 God, Jesus. Revelation 4 declares this. Colossian says IN CHRIST dwells all the fulness of the Godhead. The scriptures say in 2 Cor 5:19 that God was in Christ... Jesus says that the Father was in him doing the works and miracles. Isaiah 9:6 speaking of the prophesied Messiah that his name would be called Wonderful, Counsellor(Comforter), Mighty God, Everlasting FATHER, and Prince of Peace. Jesus is God period.

Disapproving Of Tongue Speaking
I agree with Batiste & Bruce. The Holy Ghost comes with tongues. Those that dont have it are not 2nd rate Christians, they just are not Born Again. Without Christ spirit Rom 8:9 you don't belong to him. You can go to church, build cathedrals, write books, and pastor churches, your just not biblically saved. Tough statement i know, but JESUS said you MUST be born of WATER & SPIRIT. The baptism of the Holy Ghost is 100% necessary. In Hebrews 6:1-2 it a principle thing(elementy & Foundational) of the doctrine of Christ. Here's a bible verse for those that respect persons, Mat 7:21-23. They did great works in his name but he didn't know them. We better stick with the Apostles and Acts 2:38 salvation it was given by God.

You Already Have Holy Spirit
I'm glad you have taken the 1st step towards salvation. The BIBLE SAYS, YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN OF WATER AND SPIRIT. (Jn 3:5) Baptism was for the remission(forgiveness) of sin if it was done in JESUS name.(Acts 2:38) You are doing the right thing praying for the Spirit. Here's why. Luke 11:10-13 says God will give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him. Keep praying you will receive it. Don't listen to these i believe and received it people, Jesus said ask. Acts 19:1-6 the people had believed but had not received, also in Acts 8:14-17 they believed but had not received, but the apostle prayed for them to get it. When you get it will come with tongues like Acts 2:1-4,10:44-48,19:1-6. Get it the bible way it still available. God Bless

How To Receive Christ
My answer would be, you must be born again of water and the Spirit (Jn 3:5) We must follow the instruction given by Jesus Christ to his apostles. Matthew 28:19 ...go make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name(singular) of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all i have commanded you... Jesus taught his disciples for 3 1/2 years, He gave Peter the keys(the message) to the kingdom in Mat 16:18-19. The message he preached at Penticost is the same message that should be preached today. Acts 2:38 BAPTIZED in JESUS name for the REMISSION of SINS and you shall receive the gift of the HOLY GHOST. Water and Spirit it is essential. Titus 3:5 tells us that how we are saved.

Warick, it is obvious that you did not read the scriptures that I put in my reply. The first scripture is talking about Jesus. I'm going to assume you didn't understand my reply. Jesus is the true God and eternal life.
