    To Robt. (B0b) on Matt. 28:19, Acts 2:38, etc. - I'm just curious - what scriptures do you use to back up your opinion? No judging here, just sincere curiosity.
  • Irene123
    To Bruce - May I ask you an 'honest' question - with no hidden agenda? I just take it from your comments and lack of mentioning it - that you don't believe speaking in tongues as the evidence of receiving the Holy Spirit is for these days? You have the right to your beliefs with no one 'commenting' on them. Jesus is our judge.
  • Robert
    To Irene123
    Matt. 28:19 - using the words of Jesus (thru Peter) of Acts2:38; Matt. 16:19. Irene did you know that none of these verses that you used were written for you to follow. Look at Acts 9:15, Romans 16:25-26, Romans 11:13, and Gal 1:8-9. After Acts 7 even the Jews could no longer claim them. Their exalted nation status was set aside until the tribulation.
  • Bruce
