Discussion for 2 Timothy 4

  • A disciple
    Yes! and let's go further. The Father, He who sits upon the throne with the little scroll in His hand; hands the scroll to the Lord Jesus, so He can open the seven seals and look inside and read. John is there in the Spirit. There are seven lamps burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God. Reproaching the Spirit cannot be forgiven, neither in this world, nor in that to come.
  • Ren
    As you can see, "in the name of the Lord Jesus" and "in the name of Jesus" speaks of "in the authority of Jesus." Therefore, when someone is properly baptized, they are baptized in the name of Jesus; that is, by the authority of Jesus. Therefore, when they are properly baptized in the name of Jesus, they should say, "I baptize you in the name of the Father, the Son,and the Holy Spirit.
  • A disciple
    There are no contradictions in the Bible, and it is always a case of our ignorance and/or inexperience that makes us have questions. The term "in the name of" implies power of attorney; so in that sense one does not annul the other; and if we are baptized "in the name of" the Father, it does not conflict with being baptized in the name of the Son and the Holy Spirit; but each part has its purpose.
  • Agbeyei nathaniel amakeme
    You will need to understand that verse of the scripture very will before you will be able to accept why his disciples have to baptize in the name of Jesus,and not in father,son,and holy ghost.
    Now let look at it.Jesus said baptize in the name of the father,son,and holy ghost.Please the emphasis is not father nor son either.The emphasis is in the name of the father and FATHER IS NOT A NAME?Is title
  • Ren
    The proper form of baptism is in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as Jesus designated in Matt. 28:19, "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit." The clear command of Jesus is to baptize this way. Then why do we see so many instances in the New Testament where people were baptized "in Jesus' name"?
  • A disciple
    "...and they shall turn away [their] ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables." Now most of us are quite familiar with the really gross errors and sects which are obviously off from the Scriptures. But what also might be meant by; (as the Lord Jesus warned to beware of); the MANY who say all the right things, but are in truth gone aside, and are out of the way? What is, Another Gospel?
