MARk 16:16 is NOT referring to WATER BAPTISMAugust 15 2012 at 9:30 AM
Response to Eric's so naive, so gullible, so vulnerable !
This is why and how you dont get it!!
WATER baptisms are CEREMONIES or RITES HONORING what JESUS did
To be BAPTIZED is to be of the BODY of JESUS
When HE alone WASHED or CLEANSED or BAPTIZED the SOUls of HIS body with the SHEDDINg of HIS BLOOD
NOT EVERY time one sees the word "BAPTISM" in SCRIPTURE is it referring to a WATER baptism CEREMONY
BAPTISM is from the GREEK " To IMMERSE in a FLUID.. i. e. "TO WASH"
JESUS on the cross WASHED or BAPTIZED the SOuls of SIn of the ELECT
HE IMMERSED their SOuls in HIS BLOOD
WATER baptisms are CEREMONIAL RITES HONORINg that ONE TRUE BAPTISM by JESUS
WATER baptisms DONT WASH or ABSOLVE or CLEANSE ANYONE of SIN
WATER baptism are NOT REQUIREMENTS to be of the the body of JESUS
these 2 points are MAN-made DOCTRINES to convince people that one must be in their church
and that ONLY their CEREMONY in THEIR church is VALID!!
