Re: Holy Ghost baptism 2021

If speaking in tongues is fanstastical then claiming everyone that receives the Holy Spirit does this fanstastical thing is also fantastical.

Re: Holy Ghost baptism 2021

You don't think speaking in tongues is fantastical?

Re: Holy Ghost baptism 2021

I am. But seems you aren't following along, which is okay. We can remedy that.

A claim like everyone must speak in tongues to have the Holy Ghost is as fantastical as all the other fantastic...

Re: Holy Ghost baptism 2021

Thank you. That was the example I was looking for. Though it's not the strongest case because context does seem to indicate something miraculous and noticable occured for Simon the Sorcerer to...

Re: Holy Ghost baptism 2021

Probably doesn't matter because the bible doesn't say. But I'd speculate that it's possibly because they laid hands on them for that purpose and as apostles they knew when they laid hands on someone...

Re: Holy Ghost baptism 2021

Let's try this. The bible does not say there was no purple flying monkey singing 'oops i did it again' flying around Jesus when he was on the cross. So, it's possible there was one doing just that,...

Re: Holy Ghost baptism 2021

We know from Corinthians that Paul spoke in tongues. So IMO he's not the best case to use.

Re: Holy Ghost baptism 2021

Why does that distinction matter?



Glad you can see why it's to be rejected.... but it's the same kind of argument made about tongues and receiving the Holy Spirit. Why do you accept 1 and not...

Re: Hebrews 6:2

Neither of those practices when placed in that light sound very foundational to me - and this passage is a brief recounting of foundational christian doctrinal principles - right?

Surely in this...

Re: Holy Ghost baptism 2021

I've wrestled with that question and I don't know that it matters. Whether they have it now or will have it in the future because of God's promise, what difference does it make?

Re: Holy Ghost baptism 2021

While true, your argument here presumes that our experiences should conform to the examples we have of early church practices.

As an example consider Acts 4:32-35:
32 All the believers were one...

Hebrews 6:2

So I read this verse.



Seems to me this lays out a number of core doctrines and a couple of them I find really interesting.

1. Repentance from dead works
2. Faith toward God
3. Doctrine...

Re: Holy Ghost baptism 2021

Doesn't make sense to me.

God made a promise. The person we are talking about repented and was baptized. God already dealt with that person or they wouldn't have done either of those things. At...

Being taken out of their normal environment is likely the catalyst for many young people due to less fear of judgement from strangers.

I also think there is a large church problem. The larger...

Re: Are There Co Equal God Persons?

Person has always carried with it the connotation of a being that is self conscious. That's what separates a human being from the animals and you'll note that we don't refer to animals as persons.
