Baptism

    I was baptized on Easter Sunday. My Pastor asked me if I believed that Jesus died on the cross for my sins and do I accept him as my Lord and Saviour. I replied yes and then he said I baptize you in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

    I was told that I was not baptized right and that I have to be baptized again in the name of Jesus only.

    I am confused. Can someone please explain this concept?

      What a rotten person to tell you that it was not right- whatever  did or did not happen you made a comittment and I am sure that your pastor would have got it right- if you are worried talk to him - i am sure he will explain kindly. Secondly dont get hung up on your religion- I liken my religion to a  bottle of low alcohol beer- all the enjoyment but no drunkedness or hangover the next day as I am still in charge of my faculties

      Different denominations have different views, customs and procedures... don't worry about it

      Which one of the reported 38,000 Christian denominations were you baptized and which one of those reported 38,000 Christian denominations told you it was wrong? smile

        if it wasn't Greek Orthodox, then of course it was 'wrong'.. but God is very forgiving

      Matthew: 28:19; "Go ye therefore,and teach all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father,and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. If you were baptized in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost; you are properly baptized. The only thing that makes it more perfect is if you received a "Full Immersion Baptism" where you are dunked completely in a vat of water just as Jesus was dunked in the river Jordan.

    In Matthew 28:19 Jesus told the disciples to baptize in the name of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit but I see in Acts 2:38 Peter said to repent and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ.

    It doesn't matter much, providing he remembers the idea is to hold heads under until they agree to believe in this stuff, so any old way is right and should satisfy. smile

    Sry, can't help but also can't not say something. Who told you that the baptism was incorrectly done? I would assume your pastor knows what he's doing, right? Don't worry no matter what you do there will always be another christian sayin, nope you got that one wrong, your going to hell and don't pass go and don't collect $200.00. It appears that one of the biggest draws to the christian faith is that each and every christian gets to design his or her own faith, You get to design the ceremonies, pick the rules to follow and best of all, you get to pick the groups of people you're gonna harrass and torment till they die. You will also always have atheists waiting to welcome you if you choose to think for yourself, Best of luck on your journey. Sorry I couldn't answer your question.

    Baptism is a display of obidence to God, it is not a gaurantee to salvation, it is symbolic  behavior, of your will submission to Jesus as your Lord and Master. having been Baptised is enough, the rest you can read and study and come upon your own discoveries, but do not let folks fool you into believeing you have to be baptised a certin way only.

    Every Religious Belief has thier own Baptism Rite, and non are the exact rtight way, just a way they have come up with.

    What difference does it make?
    If you believe in Jesus as Lord and Saviour, you also know the Father, and have the Holy Spirit. They are ONE. You were baptised into Christ's Death, and raised to new life in Him. So, the point here for you is to continue to live for Him.
    It's a step pf obedience that you have taken.

    Guys, his name is Yeshua... heres the history Jesus... from latin Iesus from Greek IESUS from Hebrew Yeshua meaning Salvation ... Salvation is of the Jews remember the verse...? u worship what u dont know, we worship what we know... King of the jews has a jewish Name... HalleluYah is short for HalleluYHWH.... YHWH is Salvation = YWHW is Yeshua = Jesus is LORD if u wanna get really technical but u are under grace so although u have only 1 % in ur exam, u are regarded as a 100 % pass thats the Good News (Gospel).... a righteousness of faith In Yeshua Ha Moshiach ... not of ur own works that no one may boast... Shalom
