  6. I guess you're agreeing with me then? Anyways, I have never understood the argument that a child or infant can't receive batism, considering that Jesus said: 1At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? 2And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, 3And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. 4Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. 6But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. - Matthew 18:1-6 and: 13Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them. 14But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven. - Matthew 19:13-14 If anything, I would say these passages support the idea of infants and children being able to share the covenant of Baptism. I was baptized as an infant, and was not fully submersed in water, and don't feel my baptism is any less signifcant than someone who received baptism at a later age and was fully submersed. I have always known God, and never came to an age where I just decided to give me life to God...my life has always been his, and I have always tried to follow his word... As for only believing in being baptized in the name of Jesus and not by the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit...I don't really understand, as they're all one. I think that many of the protestant churches became so concerned with separating themselves from the Catholic church that they began nitpicking certain things, and over-thought the very purpose for them. For the record, I don't consider myself alligned with any church...church is church to me, so long as it upholds the fundamentals of Christianity...even if there are minor things that I disagree with. 49And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not with us. 50And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us. - Luke 9:49-50 Where does it say anywhere in that text that an infant was baptized??? Do I believe children can be baptized, yes. We had a 4 year old girl recently recieve the Holy Ghost evident by the speaking of other tongues. And she was baptized. Before she recieved the Holy Ghost she was up there praying crying and pouring out her heart to God. She UNDERSTOOD what it meant to be baptized. She was baptized by way of immersion. And before anyone says anything there is no chance of drowning. You are dipped under water for like 2 seconds, told to hold your breath and the pastor helps hold your nose. And we baptize in the NAME of Jesus Christ!
  7. Just ordered the Solomon Grundy figure from dcbservice.com. Hope it looks as cool in person.
  8. So why when we die do we turn to dirt. When you leave an ice cube out does it not return to its previous form? I didn't say I didn't believe we werent made from it what I said was I don't see how cosmic dust colliding could make something as intricate as the human body. Ice may be made of water but something has to freeze it. If I take some water and slam it together do I get ice? If I take some dirt and slam it together do I get a person? No YOU don't, because your not God.
  9. In the pictures I saw the supergirl sculpt looks pretty good(I have only seen small pics though). So I guess I should spend my money elsewhere huh. I was gonna order the set. How about the justice league Alex Ross series 4 Soloman Grundy?
  10. Who said they will only believe because he does miracles. You have that wrong. It is because I believe that he does miracles! So why when we die do we turn to dirt. When you leave an ice cube out does it not return to its previous form?
  11. Tank Girl. Got to the following website and read about the miracle that was performed for this minister. http://www.leestoneking.com/My%20Miracle.htm If you would like to hear him preach or recieve some cd's of what I am talking about PM me. That goes for anyone here. If you want to know more about my religion google Azusa Street.

  13. I just don't understand how you could dunk a little 3 year old under water? Fully submerging someone under water isn't necessary for baptism. That's how everyone in the bible was baptized isn't it? Ezek. 36:25 - Ezekiel prophesies that God "will 'sprinkle' clean water on you and you shall be clean." The word for "sprinkle" is "rhaino" which means what it says, sprinkle (not immersion). (“Kai rhaino eph hymas hydor katharon.”) 2 Kings 5:14 - Namaan went down and dipped himself in the Jordan. The Greek word for "dipped" is "baptizo." Here, baptizo means immersion. But many Protestant churches argue that "baptizo" and related tenses of the Greek word always mean immersion, and therefore the Catholic baptisms of pouring or sprinkling water over the head are invalid. The Scriptures disprove their claim. Num. 19:18 – here, the verbs for dipping (“baptisantes”) and sprinkled (“bapsei”) refers to affusion (pouring) and sprinkling (aspersion), not immersion. Matt. 3:11; Mark 1:8; Luke 3:16 -John the Baptist prophesied that Jesus will baptize ("baptisei") with the Holy Spirit and fire. In this case, "baptisei" refers to a "pouring" out over the head. This is confirmed by Matt. 3:16 where the Holy Spirit descends upon Jesus' head like a dove and Acts 2:3-4 where the Holy Spirit descended upon Mary and the apostles' heads in the form of tongues of fire. In each case, in fulfilling John the Baptist's prophecy, the Lord baptized ("baptizo") in the form of pouring out His Spirit upon the head, not immersing the person. Matt. 20:22-23; Mark 10:38-39; Luke 12:50 - Jesus also talks about His baptism (from "baptizo") of blood, which was shed and sprinkled in His passion. But this baptism does not (and cannot) mean immersion. Mark 7:3 - the Pharisees do not eat unless they wash ("baptizo" ) their hands. This demonstrates that "baptizo" does not always mean immersion. It can mean pouring water over something (in this case, over their hands). Mark 7:4 - we see that the Jews washed ("bapto" from baptizo) cups, pitchers and vessels, but this does not mean that they actually immersed these items. Also, some manuscripts say the Jews also washed (bapto) couches, yet they did not immerse the couches, they only sprinkled them. Luke 11:38 - Jesus had not washed ("ebaptisthe") His hands before dinner. Here, the derivative of "baptizo" just means washing up, not immersing. Acts 2:41 - at Peter's first sermon, 3,000 were baptized. There is archeological proof that immersion would have been impossible in this area. Instead, these 3,000 people had to be sprinkled in water baptism. Acts 8:38 - because the verse says they "went down into the water," many Protestants say this is proof that baptism must be done by immersion. But the verb to describe Phillip and the eunuch going down into the water is the same verb ("katabaino") used in Acts 8:26 to describe the angel's instruction to Phillip to stop his chariot and go down to Gaza. The word has nothing to do with immersing oneself in water. Acts 8:39 - because the verse says "they came up out of the water," many Protestants also use this verse to prove that baptism must be done by immersion. However, the Greek word for "coming up out of the water" is "anebesan" which is plural. The verse is describing that both Phillip and the eunuch ascended out of the water, but does not prove that they were both immersed in the water. In fact, Phillip could not have baptized the eunuch if Phillip was also immersed. Finally, even if this was a baptism by immersion, the verse does not say that baptism by immersion is the only way to baptize. Acts 9:18; 22:16 - Paul is baptized while standing up in the house of Judas. There is no hot tub or swimming pool for immersion. This demonstrates that Paul was sprinkled. Acts 10:47-48 - Peter baptized in the house of Cornelius, even though hot tubs and swimming pools were not part of homes. Those in the house had to be sprinkled. Acts 16:33 - the baptism of the jailer and his household appears to be in the house, so immersion is not possible. Acts 2:17,18,33 - the pouring of water is like the "pouring" out of the Holy Spirit. Pouring is also called "infusion" (of grace). 1 Cor. 10:2 - Paul says that the Israelites were baptized ("baptizo") in the cloud and in the sea. But they could not have been immersed because Exodus 14:22 and 15:9 say that they went dry shod. Thus, "baptizo" does not mean immersed in these verses. Eph. 4:5 - there is only one baptism, just as there is only one Lord and one faith. Once a person is validly baptized by water and the Spirit in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit with the intention of the Church (whether by pouring or immersion), there is no longer a need to rebaptize the person. Titus 3:6 – the “washing of regeneration” (baptism) is “poured out” upon us. This “pouring out” generally refers to the pouring of baptismal waters over the head of the newly baptized. Heb. 6:2 – on the doctrine of baptisms (the word used is “baptismos”) which generally referred to pouring and not immersion. Heb. 10:22 – the author writes, “with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience.” This “sprinkling” of baptism refers to aspersion, not immersion. The text also parallels 1 Peter 3:21, which expressly mentions baptism and its ability to, like Heb. 10:22, purify the conscience (the interior disposition of a person). Isaiah 44:3 - the Lord "pours" water on the thirsty land and "pours" His Spirit upon our descendants. The Lord is “pouring,” not “immersing.” 2 Thess. 2:15 - hold fast to the tradition of the Church, whether oral or written. Since the time of Christ, baptisms have been done by pouring or sprinkling. Copied and pasted from another site, but you get the point. Well my church didn't have money for a baptismal tank so we used a horse trough. Did they have horses back then? dip, immerse, mid[dle voice] dip oneself, wash (in non-Christian lit[erature] also plunge, sink, drench, overwhelm). [The Didache is also mentioned,] where baptism by pouring is allowed in cases of necessity.[ii] http://www.dtl.org/alt/background/baptism.htm If Thats all they had God will accept it. I think churches nowadays can find a place to baptize by submersion. And if they can't they should pour enough water on the person to drench them. to employ water in a religious ceremony designed to symbolize purification and initiation on the basis of repentance—“to baptize." [A note is added that refers to the Didache], According to the Didache (early second century) different forms of baptism were practiced in the early church, but with evident preference given to immersion. dip, immerse, mid[dle voice] dip oneself, wash (in non-Christian lit[erature] also plunge, sink, drench, overwhelm). [The Didache is also mentioned,] where baptism by pouring is allowed in cases of necessity.[ii] to baptize, originally to dip under.[iii] Verb used in the NT, usually translated by its English derivative, “baptize.” ...

  14. While I'm at it i'll let you know I believe you must be buried in the name of Jesus. Not in the titles of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. When I say buried I mean baptized.
  15. I just don't understand how you could dunk a little 3 year old under water? Fully submerging someone under water isn't necessary for baptism. That's how everyone in the bible was baptized isn't it? Were you dunked in water and nearly drowned? I wasnt, I had the water tipped on my head. I was baptized(originally translated to dip under, or emerse) at the age of 12 when I decided to give my life to God. The Bible says to be baptized for the remission of sins. Those sins are being washed off. When I want to clean my body do I just drip water on my head or do I have to wet every part of my body. Also emmersion is symbolic of the death burial and ressurection of Jesus Christ. When you are put under the water the old you is dying and you are being buried. When you are brought out a new you is being resurrected. Also I have to be aware why and what I am doing when I am baptized or else it does me no good. And if it was good enough for Jesus Christ to be emmersed during baptism it's good enough for me. This is the way John the Baptist baptized.

  18. I know whats it's like to have a loved one die from cancer. My grandpa died of cancer when I was 8. My uncle just had to have his nose cut off because of cancer, and it runs through my family. My brother just had a heart attack at the age of 30. I have been having chest pains lately and am only 27. I pray every night that God will heal me. I just had a new daughter on 6-5-06, shes just over a week old. The first thing I did when I held her that first night was ask God to let me live to see her grow up and also to see my 5 yr old boy grow up also. I have faith God will allow that. If something does happen to me I don't want my children or my wife giving up on God.
  19. I read the whole topic!!! I don't care what you used to believe, if you don't believe now it doesn't matter. And can someone tell me what good it does to baptize a child if they don't know what's going on. I never saw a child that was to young to understand, that was baptized in the Bible. But you can see a miracle in your life. God may not give you $20,000 but he can heal your family. You just have to believe enough to make it happen. Everyone says weel I have faith but things never happen. Having faith with your lips isn't faith. Knowing with all your heart that it will happen is faith. You have to be 100% persuaded. If your not persuaded it's not gonna happen. I'm sorry I totally believe in miracles in anyones life. So why did my grandad die of cancer? I totally believed in my heart that nothing would happen to him and that he would get better, and i was 100% certain that he would, and i had persuaded myself that he would come home from the hospital and be totally clear of cancer.............and now hes six foot under. I have been asked this question many times. I don't know what to say except you have to continue to have faith. I agree with RC Rika. Sometimes things have to happen don't give up on God because of it. When I need a miracle sometimes I just pray. One time me and my wife were broke and it was christmas time. We still had most of the gifts on layaway, I hadn't yet got my wife anything, and we barely had money to pay our bills. I went to church on a thursday night and asked God to help me. I just told him I need enough money to give my family a happy christmas. On the following Tuesday I checked the mail and there was a check in there for $700. I had no idea we were even entitled to the money we got. God knows when the time is right. Sometimes it takes more than a prayer. Sometimes you have to dig in, pray, fast, and don't give up after a day or two. If you have to fast for 2 weeks. But don't just do these things when you need something they should be parts of your everyday life. Now don't get me wrong Tank Girl I'm not saying you didn't do these things or that you didn't do it right. I'm just saying what I believe it takes.
