Those who are perfectly righteous like the Apostles were Christlike and therefore holy spirit baptized instantly but we must be water...?
baptized to receive the holy spirit?
Paul recieved the holy spirit on his way to Damascus when he was baptized with the holy spirit! Then he was told to get water baptized!
Either we are chosen and get baptized before we die or we baptize ourselves and receive the gift of the holy spirit.
Some of us will recieve the gift of the holy spirit once we follow Christ's example or Christ has a plan for us and chooses us. Not all of us will be chosen to be saved like Paul. So why keep sinning until you die? Don't wait for Jesus to wake you up because you might not get that chance!
Paul was special. He was chosen to be an Apostle of God. He had a zeal for Jehovah but it was misplaced and he persecuted the Church.
Did Jesus save the Pharisees who blasphemed the Holy Spirit? No. But he did save Paul.
So why wait? Get up and be washed in water! Acts 2:16, Acts 22:16!
True Christians are water baptized then the Holy Spirit will come upon us today or...not many days until now!6 AnswersReligion & Spirituality1 month ago
Trinitarians as a JW let me ask you this: If no mind can understand the mystery of the Trinity then why aren't Unitarians Christain?
Where does it say in the Bible that if you do not understand the trinity doctrine you are not saved?
No where in the bible is the Trinity mentioned. Not once!10 AnswersReligion & Spirituality4 months ago
The Saturnalia, originally a one-day festival in his honor, was later expanded into a seven-day celebration in the latter half of December. The event was marked by great revelry. Gifts, such as waxen fruits and candles, were exchanged, and clay dolls were especially given to the children. During the festival, no punishment was meted out. Schools and courts had a holiday; even war operations were brought to a halt. Slaves exchanged places with their masters and were permitted, without needing to fear punishment, to give free rein to the tongue.
The early Christians refused to participate in Roman worship, particularly worship of the emperor, which made them objects of intense persecution. They were uncompromising in their stand to “obey God as ruler rather than men,” refusing to give to Roman rulers the worship that rightfully belonged to God.—Ac 5:29; Mr 12:17; see ROME (Religion).
