Re: Baptism

Isn't it the case that despite not believing in the trinity the command to baptize in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit still is the case as per the command in Matthew 28:19? Or am I not understanding something. Yes. Being baptized WITH holy sprit can’t be by any human though. Also baptis...

Re: Baptism

Apologies on reply Amos, no, I do not believe we all must be martyred, though a Christian should be willing to. Was reading Acts 10, the holy spirit was poured out on the Gentiles before they were baptized. And yet in vs 47 they were afterwards baptized in water. With the Ethiopian eunuch, he was ba...

Re: Change on Adultery

Here you go ATTACHMENT (See Shepherd, chapter 12, paragraphs 10-12.) If a Christian divorces his wife without Scriptural grounds and then marries another person, how does the congregation view the previous marriage and the new marriage?

Re: Gog of the land of Maʹgog

Thanks Bobcat, I unfortunately am chairman tomorrow. Are you saying that The 2nd fulfillment of Ezekiel 38 would actually be at the end of the thousand years? This does seem to make sense.
