You are confused because the trinity is false doctrine. Repent and be baptized in the name, not names; for the remission of all sins, not your sins. If you can read 1 Timothy 3:16, I hope that will help you understand.
Steven's comment on 3/24/2013, 6:41pm...
Acts 2:38, being Baptized is not part of your Salvation; it shows that you are saved, read Romans 10:9-13, John 3:16. If you notice Jesus did not Baptized anyone, John Baptized him for an example for us, it shows the Death, Burial and Resurrection; the only way you can be saved is through Blood Of Jesus Christ.
Tracey's comment about verse 38 on 3/19/2013, 10:09am...
The correct wording is; we are to be baptized in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost? I am still a little confused...Father meaning God, Son meaning Jesus?

First I think, it reaffirms that speaking in tongues is definitely ONE OF the fruits of the spirit. Shame to those who teach that if you have been truly baptised by the Spirit YOU WILL speak in tongues. I have been baptised by the Spirit, yet I DO NOT speak in tongues. I am not a believer, I AM A KNOWER and I will pray for those who teach that.

The Scripture here is correct but why does the picture is NOT correct? Acts 2:2 says: ďAnd suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were SITTINGĒ. THE APOSTLES AND THE OTHER PEOPLE WITH THEM ON THAT DAY WERE [sitting] AND NOT [standing] AS WHAT THE PICTURE SHOWS IN THIS WEBSITE!
Patty's comment on 3/05/2013, 12:10am...
If baptism isn't important to be saved then why does Christ say it is so often in the scriptures? Because it is very important.

Did Jesus ask the thief a question or give him a promise. Today shalt thou be with me in paradise. Read carefully and give your opinion.

Ian's comment on 2/11/2013, 5:39pm...
I do believe Jesus Himself speaks of the lake of fire in Revelation several times. But no one is cast in there until his return and they are given another chance to accept Him as Lord and saviour. And follow the true Ten Commandments not the catholic version that replaced Sunday for Saturday. Those who believe Jesus nailed the commandments to the cross are deceived. The ceremonial and sacrificial laws were nailed to the cross but not the Moral law. That is why he said If you love me keep my commandments, I have kept my fatherís commandments and many will worship Me in vain teaching doctrines of men for commandments. I paraphrased a lot there but in Luke 6:46 he says why call me Lord and not do what I say. Nowhere in the bible is Sunday transferred as the Sabbath. Luke 4:4, He says we are to live by every word that comes out of the mouth of God. The bible is Godís word. Circumcision is well documented on its absolution. So why not Sunday taking over from Saturday? Because it hasn't, in John 10:35, Jesus says the scripture cannot be broken. Daniel 7:25 tells us the beast will change ties and laws and wear out the saints. The Dark Age period Christians keeping the 7th day as Jesus did, were killed for 1260 years. The Catholic Church passed the law to do it and they did. Research canon Law XX1X.
A's comment about verse 31 on 2/07/2013, 6:04pm...
This text agrees perfectly other texts and references even in the preface an old version of American Standard Bible: THAT SHEOL AND HADES MEAN SIMPLY GRAVE, PIT, HELL all being synonymous words. It does not mean a place of fire torment. Even Jesus the son of Jehovah was there, as all human when we die, but did not remain there. How sad to believe that hell which means grave means a fire eternal home of torment.
Rev's comment on 2/04/2013, 5:54pm...
Baptism plays a very real part in our salvation. Jesus spoke in John 3:3-8 of the new birth (being born again) said that we must be born again of Water and of the Spirit. Water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ and the infilling of the Holy Ghost (Acts 2:1-4). We must Repent (die to sin) we must be baptized in Jesus' name (burial, likened to Jesus, Romans 6:4) and then Receive the Holy Ghost (Acts 2:1-4; 10:44-47). There is the plan... Thank God I followed it!

I know that the Bible is right and somebody's wrong, God's word is always right let every man be a liar and God's word be Truth and the Truth will make you free. Yes I believe Acts 2:38 and I believe in Jesus Christ, yes I believe that JESUS is GOD.
Mas's comment on 1/22/2013, 3:24am...
It is not baptism that saves us, it is rather the faith of Jesus Christ, Romans 10:9, 10.
Baptism is just a symbol of repentance, but it is not conditioned to oneís salvation.
God bless you.
Fruitloop's comment about verse 38 on 1/21/2013, 1:12pm...
So if a man has accepted Christ and has not been baptized, can he still go to heaven? He has been told a couple of different things. He does not go to church, but has made a decision and was baptized as a young boy.
Brooklyn's comment on 1/15/2013, 1:05pm...
The thief on the cross was still living under the dispensation of law. That is why it was not necessary for him to be baptized or have the Holy Ghost. When the Lord died, it brought us into the dispensation of grace, abolished the law, and brought along with it the responsibility of seeking salvation through repentance, baptism, and the Holy Ghost.
Nene's comment on 12/18/2012, 1:33pm...
To answer Stephen question from 10-16-12, Yes Sir you are correct about the thief on the cross he was not baptized, But this was before the death of Jesus, the Holy Ghost was not yet giving to anyone Jesus stated that after he depart he will send the comforter which is the Holy Ghost in (John 14:26) . In the Old Testament, they had to bring goats and lambs for a sacrifice for an offering and be cleansed for a whole year (Numbers 7:15-17). In the New Testament when Jesus came as a lamb in flesh (John 1:29), to shed his blood for the whole world that we may have a chance to be saved. Jesus stated that we must be born again of the water and the spirit (John 3:3-7) or we cannot see the kingdom of God. In Acts 2:38, it is when the door was opened by Peter the man whom Jesus gave the keys to the kingdom (Matthew 16:18-19). We are to obey his orders to be saved. Lots more scriptures but here is one more for now, 1Peter 3:21-22. God Bless!

I have been baptized in Godís wonderful name Jesus in water and received the Holy Ghost speaking in tongues. Itís still alive today. Praise God!!!
Stephen belding's comment about verse 38 on 10/16/2012, 8:39pm...
Peter is talking about being baptized in the name of Jesus - not being baptized with water - especially when 3 thousand got saved on the day of Pentecost. There is no mention of water only being filled with the Holy Ghost. However if one were to listen to Jesus on the cross when he said to the thief that accepted Jesus as savior - this thief was not baptized but was told by Jesus that - you shalt be with me in paradise. The thief died on the cross - so he couldn't have been baptized - right...

Tony Allen's comment about verse 38 on 9/23/2012, 1:34pm...
John 3:1-8 Jesus tells Nicodemus that he must be born of water and the spirit otherwise he will not see the kingdom of God even from afar off! So we come to Acts 2 - Repent, be baptized and you SHALL receive the Holy Spirit! Unfortunately most churches, nominal and even most Pentecostal, do not accept that speaking in tongues is the only sign that you have received the Holy Spirit! Jesus wouldn't make that statement to Nicodemus about the need to be born again without there being some tangible evidence of that event - He wouldn't leave us floundering as to whether or not we are born again - hence the accompanying sign should be! In Acts 10: Cornelius prayed often and gave alms to the poor but was instructed by the angel to go to Joppa where Peter would tell him what he needed to do further - receive the Holy Spirit - and in Acts 11 Peter tells the rest of the apostles that they received the HOLY SPIRIT "as we did at the beginning!"

Ye men of Israel... Jesus of Nazareth, a MAN approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which GOD did by him
Shall I admit that Jesus was a MAN and whatever the miracles done by him was by GOD but not of his own
Please respond to me as I will be eagerly waiting for it
Jack's comment about verse 27 on 8/25/2012, 2:21pm...
Christ descended into "hades', the realm of dis-embodied spirits,
and no where in the scriptures is it stated that Christ went into Hell!
"Hell" is the place of the condemned and the KJV
in ignorance inserted the word "hell" where hades should have been placed
