God's Message to ALL
Submitted by Jeffreyb (United States), Mar 6, 2006 at 01:06Mark 1:4 (Water Baptism is an act of REPENTANCE)
John the baptizer appeared in the wilderness, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.
Matthew 3:11 (Only God Baptizes with the Holy Spirit)
I baptize you with water for repentance, but he who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry; he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire.
Matthew 28:19-20 (Make Disciples and Baptize them)
Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you;
Christians are supposed to be BAPTIZING and making DISCIPLES of all nations and teaching them God's commands... NOT fighting everyone who doesn't call Jesus God...
Are you getting the message yet?
It's the same message in the Torah, in the Bible, and in the Qur'an...
REPENTANCE for the forgiveness of sins... ;)
