    Hi GB,
    Do you really believe the apostles acted in immaturity and ignorance when they obeyed Christ baptising in water?

    Hi GB,
    So those who sat at the feet of Jesus showed us the way of Christ in the book of Acts.
    Has this book become deceitful and superfluous to modern men?

    Hi Gb,
    You said
    “Nick……The Apostles all baptized with water at first, they were new in the faith and were growing in understanding all the time from a Carnal way of looking at things to a Spiritual way of seeing things.”

    You have yet to show how things are more spiritual in the way of Christ now?
    More likely men have parted from the way and followed their own ideas.

    Hi GB,
    You said,
    Nick……….As i said before the apostles were still babes when the church began , but Peter plainly grow in spiritual understanding and got to a point where He said that the baptism of washing of the filth of the flesh did not remove sin, but the baptism of the Spirit does remove sin and cleans us inside. You can view things two ways, Spiritual or Physical, you choice.

    Where did Peter say this?
    Not in 1 Peter 3.

    Washing of the flesh never did change the inner state of sin.
    But it is an obedient plea for God's forgiveness and inner washing
    so that we who are born unholy can be fiiled with His Holy Spirit

    Hi,
    The book of Acts is the textbook for those in Christ.
    Nothing has changed since those days except for the faith of men.

    Hi,
    Acts is rarely quoted.
    Yet it is the handbook for the saints.

    Hi Keras,
    You speak of believers as those who have ACCEPTED CHRIST AS LORD.
    Can you show how this aligns with what is shown in Acts?

    Hi,
    believers in Acts were baptised in water in the name of Jesus Christ and hands were laid on them to receive the Spirit.
    Nothing has changed.

    Human religion teaches other useless things

    Yeah; and Catholics and Mormons are baptised in water also.

    So what is the difference?

    Nick.

    Just like a murderer before the judge.
    I am sorry judge he said.
    He got a reduced sentence; then do it again.
    and so it goes on and on,untill he is hanged.

    wakeup.

    hi WU,
    No God refuses few like Simon.
    The Spirit given helps the rest walk on straight paths

    Hi,
    heb 12
    12 Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees;

    13 And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed.

    Hi,

    The book of Acts is the textbook for followers of Jesus Christ.

    These men walked in the Spirit.
