I was Baptized in water in 1978. I am now going to a new church and want to become a member, but they are telling I can’t become a member unless I get baptized by water to make sure that I was baptized correctly. Is it wrong for me to get baptized again?

I agree Vickie that you should not have to get baptized again but I would do it anyway. There is no sin in this and even Jesus was baptized when He didn’t need to be and did so to fulfill all righteousness. Sadly, many churches require this, even if you have been baptized once, which is wrong but I would do it just to not make a big issue of it. Paul wrote in Eph 4:4 that “There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.” That is proof that you need only one baptism and the word for baptism in the Greek indicates submersion and not sprinkling. Maybe they are concerned it was sprinkling. You might ask the about Eph 4:4. Let me know how it works out Vickie.

Well, if one is going to ACTUALLY believe the Holy Bible, completely believe all that G_d had inspired in the book, there are ACTUALLY eight (8) baptisms – Jonah was TOTALLY baptized.

If I believe and practice what was taught by Jesus and repent and had belief in the Father but did not baptize with water will I see Father?
My interpretation is that to baptize with Fire is to accept the words of the Father written with fire which were the Commandments. Also, my interpretation to be baptize by in the name of the son is to gain the character of the son in accepting the words in your heart thus having the heart purified to be like Jesus. Also, I interpret holy spirit to be Special words of the son and the Father as I think Spirit relates to special breath of speech which are the special words.

Can someone be baptized with fire in the name of the Son and the Holy Spirit(Special words) without being baptized with water even though the water is a symbol of the metaphor to baptize with water?

What is referred to here as “Believer’s Baptism” is the “one baptism” in effect in today (Eph 4). According to Scripture (but not according to denominations) it is essential to salvation, as Peter said in Acts 2 when he explained that baptism is where our sins (the ONLY thing on earth that God said will cause our damnation) are washed away. Paul was told the same thing in Acts 22 when Annias told him to “Arise and be baptized and wash away thy sins calling on the name of the Lord”; and as Christ said in Mark 16 when he said to the Apostles “He that believes and is baptized shall be saved”.

Christianity would be so much stronger in America if Christian denominations would get their doctrines aligned with Scripture and teach that baptism is simply obedience to the Word of God, and to the command of Christ. Obedience to the Word of God is essential to salvation, and thus, so is baptism as it is taught in the Word of God.

1 Peter 3 ” . . . once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.
The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us, by the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
(Not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God.)

We all want to get to Heaven!

Then Jesus death was not enough. We must add to it like with baptism/ What of the man who had a “death bed” conversion and was in no condition to be baptized in such a state of physical deterioration that he could not even be lifted up out of his bed due to the risk of fracture of his vertebrae? That dying man’s conversion was not enough then to believe in Jesus Christ to be saved? (Acts 4:14, Rom 10:9, Acts 16:30-31). We could not baptize him yet he came to saving faith just before he died so he is headed to hell? How can another woman in a nursing home who accepted Christ also on her death bed not be saved after professing saving faith in Christ? She too is headed to hell? There are also scores of people who in car wrecks who professed faith in Christ. Once with a pastor who included it in his lifetime experiences and came to the scene after the accident. Remember that these three people who were dying and not able to be baptized professed with their tongue faith in Christ. The two elderly people understood the plan of salvation as I explained it clearly to them. And this was clearly in the New Covenant…this was just last summer! This was one of the most awesome experiences of my entire life and yet you say because they were not baptized they are not saved and headed to hell for eternity. I disagree.

The New Covenant was clearly established by Christ but it was actually BEFORE the cross if you believe Jesus: “And he said, Go into the city to such a man, and say unto him, The Master saith, My time is at hand; I will keep the passover at thy house with my disciples…. And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body. And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; For this is my blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. (Matthew 26:18-28 ). He repeats this phrase THREE TIMES “this is the new covenant” during the Passover.

27 Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. 28 This is my blood of the new covenant, which IS (is meaning it already is in effect) poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. He did not say, this “will be” the new covenant but “is”.

What would you say to those two death bed conversions of those two who had clearly believed in Jesus Christ before they died? Are the headed for hell then? What do you say about them?

I always refer back to the thief on the cross. Jesus said “today you will be with me in paradise “
