Yes, I do believe in God. I do believe that He had a Son. I do believe in the Message that Jesus was sent to remind us of. But all of God's Children bring that same message, if we would just listen to OurSelves rather the words in the books, or the authorities, whom have gotten the message (wrongly, generally) from the same place that we did.

However, I classify all of it as a "Working Knowledge": "so it is written, so does it work", rather than as a mere "belief".

have you been bapsist the way it was written ...

No. By this definition, I "have not been baptised". However, I have, indeed, been "baptised" by my "submersion under the waters" of existence.

What is the purpose of this ritual? Is it a ritual of rebirth that is symbolizd by our rising as in ".. Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the land appear:.." [Gen 1:9]? Is it a ritual symbolizing the "washing away of our sins"? Do we become, then, a new being with a reduced degree of "free will"?

and before that admidding you are a sinner ..(means you are a human that makes faults)
God knows my heart, and I know that; what's the sense in "sinning" if it isn't gonna be hidden from the only two Beings for which it matters: God and MySelf? For that matter, what's the sense in "sinning" period? "Humans can't help it."?? I have free will; I can too help it!!

Harping on the things that we do that are deemed "wrong" takes a lot of energy and time away from the things that we could be doing/are doing that are "right". As a human with "free will", there are definitely times when I'm going to make a decision that has faults. I can learn from them. Tossing a label on that, and giving it so much weight strikes me as a very effective tool to keep a people subjugating themselves. Appears to be working remarkably well, in fact!

and my second question is...

what is the reason why you have not done this yet......?
Don't need the pagentry. Me and God know what's up with me, and that's all that matters. Nor is it anybody else's business. I don't feel that I need to "prove" to someone else anything about my God Given Gift of Life.


just wondering....

Love you fam:heart:

It's more than setting aside "moments" in "prayer": breathing, talking, thinking, EXISTING is "prayer".

It's about more than "going to church on sunday and sometimes on wednesday": Existence is my "church", where ever I breathe, where ever I am.

peace,

I am baptised daily................everytime new knowledge (water) cultivates the mind (womb) I am born again and again and again!!!

No, I don't subscribe to the notion that the GOd of the Bible had a Son named Jesus.......I do subscribe to the fact that this story in the bible is symbolic of something else that took place and happen to us!!

peace

I never really understodd the whole water baptism thing.. Does going down into water really cleanse you, spiritually.. ??.. .

I was born and raised in a Pentecostal church.. I believe in the speaking of tongues and in the baptism of the fire... (Father, Son and the Holy Ghost)

What is Baptised??

Hotep

Baptisim means: Initiation into the Ancient Mysteries,but you first must be cleaned to inter the temple, and the temple must be clean, any other meaning is False. When the person in the story called "John the Baptist" was doing this he was in the process of Initiating students into the Ancient Mystries. Like every thing else, this has been curopted in to some "Spooky-Thing", with out the real meaning, to support a story that has been manipulated for selfish purposes by the same people who is said to chop off the head of this man. Why did they chop off his head, after he came in contact with his student "Jesus"?? (PBUH). Ware did Jesus come from after disapearing from age 12 until age 30?? Ware did Jesus spend that time away from the Roman controled cities?? Your Jesus was in Afrika, studying what you should be studying today and that is the knowlege of Self. By the time he returned he was a practicing Master of Healing ect. Like every thing else, this story is "Spooky" by people who did not want you to know how to find your way back to the Truth. Every time you take a bath, that is Baptisim and a form of initation into Clenliness ect.
