This may shock
99% of all people who have
been baptized have not been baptized in the right way!
“For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition
of men.” Mark 7:8
MANY CHURCHES SPRINKLE
Immersion became uncomfortable after the baptism of babies was introduced
by those who had fallen away from Christianity. It developed into
something which has the appearance of being a church. The true Christians
were persecuted. The correct method of baptism was changed and replaced
by sprinkling with water. In addition, the name of Jesus, which was
called over the one being baptized up until then, was taken away and
replaced with the words: "Father, Son, and Holy Ghost".
As a result, it made the command of being baptized in water in Jesus'
name to be of no significance.
MANY CHURCHES BAPTIZE IN WATER
Although many churches baptize with, or rather, in water by immersion,
there is still something wrong if they cling on to the trinitarian
baptism formula i.e. with the titles –“in the name of the Father,
the Son, and the Holy Ghost.” They prefer to do it that way rather
than following that what is in the Book of Acts (the Bible being the
sole Christian authority), which is baptizing in the name of the Lord
Jesus Christ for the remission of sins. Acts 2:38; 8:16; 10:48; 19:5;
BIBLICAL FACTS WHICH ARE KEPT AS A SECRET FROM
Babies were never baptized and neither were they sprinkled! As according
to the Holy Scriptures, a young child is sanctified by the believing
parent or parents, i.e. small children were not baptized. Otherwise
the Bible would contradict itself, considering that faith and turning
away from sin are the requirements for the water baptism in JESUS'
name. I Corinthians 7:14; Mark 16:16.
God will not punish babies, nor will He condemn them; who is it that
teaches such a thing? The Bible in any case certainly does not! Therefore,
it is a waste of time to baptize babies! It is not the babies who
should be obedient to God but rather their parents! Children were
dedicated to the Lord and brought up in the Christian faith, until
they reached the age when they could decide for themselves. It is
only then that the water baptism by immersion and in the name of Jesus
Christ was then carried out.
WHAT IS THE RIGHT WAY FOR ME TO BE BAPTIZED?
According to the Holy Scriptures, water baptism is carried out by
Jesus is our prime example: “And Jesus, when he was baptized,
went up straightway out of the water” Matthew 3:16.
Also the apostles and disciples of Jesus: “…and they went down
both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.”
The water baptism in Jesus' name is a burial of our sins. “Therefore
we are buried with him (that is Jesus) by baptism into death.” Romans
Conversion, that is, repentance and faith in Jesus Christ are the
requirements for baptism.
