    Dear Earl Bowman am not often disagree with you but this time i am. In Jesus Name.

    Remember when the gards stuck The Lord with the spear it comes out of the Lord exactly blood and wather. John 19:34 But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water. And also

    The Lord said: Luke 23:43

    And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.

    King of King have Absolut All rights too have this authority to said soo, and do what ever He want.

    That was a terrible day and the days after, it was dark and many ppl stand up from the grave, and evan walked in Jerusalem!

    May God bless us all with fully understanding in the right time, in Jesus Holy Name.

    Precious friend, Landon. Water baptism to be saved? Yes, for Israel, to be "inducted into the priesthood," and for "remission of sin," However:

    Rightly Divided 2 Timothy 2:15 From "Things That DIFFER!":

    No, for the Body Of CHRIST! = No "works" to be saved, as it is by "GRACE Through faith" Ephesians 2:8-9 There is ONLY 'ONE' Baptism, Today, Under God's PURE GRACE!:

    ONE 'Spiritual' Baptism to be saved? Yes!:

    Dear Landon,

    Thanks for sharing the scripture confirming water baptism. Yes, I also believe we must be Born of Water and Spirit to enter the kingdom of God. So baptism with water and receiving the Holy Spirit will be the requirement - per Jesus Christ! This scripture is so powerful, Jesus stating "EXCEPT A MAN BE BORN OF WATER AND SPIRIT"

    John 3:5

    "Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God."

    To argue differently, is to argue directly with Jesus.

    God Bless.

    Brother Dan, may CHRIST IN US grace HIS wisdom and HIS and HIS understanding.

    Christ promised the thief on the cross LIFE when the kingdom of God was made available by the death of Christ.

    If you have to be water baptisted, then the thief will never be able receive Christ's promise.

    Christ word's can not be broken; therefore it's water baptism that does't stand.

    John baptised with water, God baptises with SPIRIT.

    Hi Brother Earl,

    I believe that your message is incorrect, and it conflicts with God's true message.

    God can have mercy on whomever he pleases.

    Romans 9:18

    "Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth."

    The example that you stated of Jesus forgiving the thief on the cross was "a special act of mercy" for the thief, NOT a message to "all mankind" to go ahead and keep sinning and just say that you believe in Christ and you will be saved. That message of just believing is a FALSE MESSAGE! Even the devil and his demons believe, are they going to heaven too?

    We must not only believe, we must be baptized in water, receive the Holy Spirit, also REPENT, and lead a good christian life following the gospel of Jesus Christ.

    Jesus/God's message is plain for all to see. We can't just ignore what Jesus instructs us to do. There is so much scripture of Jesus telling us what we need to do, to enter into the kingdom.

    John 14:15

    "If ye love me, keep my commandments."

    Revelation 22:12-14

    12And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. 13I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. 14Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

    Do you believe the above scripture? If you believe the above scripture, and if you love Jesus you will follow HIS advice! If you turn your back on the above scripture, Jesus has already said that he will be our JUDGE, and he will judge us according to HIS WORD!

    God Bless.
