How can today's Christians "Be ye perfect" (Matt 5:48) w/o being Holy Spirit baptized with "the way of God more perfectly" (Acts 18:25-26)?

Update:

OOPS!

YOU MISSED ANOTHER COMMANDMENT DIDN'T YOU (I JOHN 2:3-5)?

GOD ASKS SOME TOUGH QUESTIONS DOESN'T HE?

    Some used of the word "perfect" do not mean 100% good and obedient. Often it means "to perfect," of be in the process of being perfected (matured in the faith). There is perf-ect, and there is per-fect.

    "Be ye perfect" (Matt 5:48)"

    READ THE CONTEXT - IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH BAPTISM

    43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.

    44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

    45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

    46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?

    47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

    God is love. Jesus was saying that we must love like God loves.

    We both know most christians are Hindus pretending to be Christians 

    because they're Hindus from India 

    and when Christians go to India they're fake Hindus while there
