    "In the name of Jesus" is the only way to approach God the Father. Jesus is the only mediator between God and man.

    Thanks Chuck! Well said :) ! Talk to you soon.

    Hi Chuck; YES! Amen! "For there is no other name given among men whereby we must be saved." And as far as if Peter (being full of the Holy Ghost) was "mistaken;" that's simply nonsense! The part that I was trying to emphasize, is how the Lord Himself commanded to baptize in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost; and that one DOES NOT negate the other! But BOTH ARE TRUE!

    To disciple: another way to answer you is this: when I pray for a sick person, I pray in the name of Jesus as does everyone. When I give thanks over a meal, I say in the name of Jesus, as does everyone. And since Col3:17 says everything we do in word or deed , do all in the name of Jesus. That's what I mean when I say someone must be baptized in the name of Jesus. I hope this clarifies the issue.
  • Chuck
    To disciple; because Peter had been with Jesus, he knew the singular name to use in baptism. Peter wasn't mistaken when he commanded the Jews and Gentiles to be baptized in the name of Jesus. He did exactly what Jesus commanded him to do. He found the singular name that is above all names. The name Jesus instead of titles.
  • A disciple
    Hello Chuck; so what do you think that means, "In the Name of the Lord JESUS?" And without straining to falsely spiritualize, do you think it overrides what the Lord Himself said; "...In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost?"
