CC1 Said: "You are born of water in your natural birth and of the Spirit when you repent and accept Christ as your savior. The baptism of the Holy Spirit is subsequent to salvation and an empowerment to living for God. Now that should set off a firestorm! If it does please make it another thread since this one is strictly on water baptism at my church."

Re: Is This True?

Is it possible(I think it is) that the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, being filled with the Spirit, having the Spirit, receiving the Spirit, the Spirit coming upon someone, the Spirit coming, and many more actions of the Holy Spirit are not all the same thing? Surely there is a reason there are different descriptions for each occurrence. We have a command to "be filled with the Spirit" (literally be being filled with the Spirit, a continuous process). I just want to be filled today. That's more important than what happened 35 years ago.

So, one scripture trumps another?
How does Acts 19:1-2 show the Holy Ghost as being "subsequent" to salvation? Obviously, he didn't deem them to be saved without it.

Re: Is This True?

The Samaritans believed and were baptized in Acts 8:12

they had received the Word of God according to verse 14

and yet had not received the HG according to verse 15-16

Act 8:12 But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.
Act 8:13 Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done.
Act 8:14 Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John:
Act 8:15 Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost:
Act 8:16 (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.)
Act 8:17 Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost.

This.

My personal belief is that a person must repent of their sins, have their sins washed away in baptism and must be filled with the Holy Ghost in order to go to Heaven. Yep, I'm an Apostolic traditionalist on this issue.

Agreed, nothing in that passage implies that the "certain disciples" were saved with--or without--the re-baptism and infilling of the Holy Ghost. Obviously it needed to be done; Paul seemed to think it was important enough to introduce them to baptism in Jesus' name and being filled with the Holy Ghost. Now, why would Paul think that people who were already BELIEVERS and DISCIPLES needed to be re-baptized and filled with the Holy Ghost? Wasn't repentance enough?

The most important conclusion that can be drawn from Acts 19:1-2 regarding our doctrine is that repentance and believing are not synonymous with being filled with the Holy Ghost. 1. They hadn't even heard that there was a Holy Ghost--even though they had repented and were believers, and 2. In spite of the fact that they had repented and believed, Paul prayed for them and the Holy Ghost they hadn't yet heard of or experienced "came on them" and they spoke in tongues and prophesied. It was definitely a separate experience from repentance and believing.

I have always appreciated the respect that Paul showed those disciples, though. It's an important attitude that the overly-exclusive Apostolic church world should emulate.

How is that "obvious"? He called them disciples. Said they believed.

Exactly. I have rarely seen a promise that didn't have an "if" to go with it. There are conditional promises in the Bible. Nothing is free in life.

Good post, but don't make the mistake that Paul would have "included" anyone that didn't receive the truth of the Gospel. Luke 10:11 The people Paul prayed for readily received what he had to say.
