    As long as you baptize in the name of the Father, in the name of the Son, in the name of the Holy Ghost, as Jesus, Himself, instructed us, by His very own words. Matthew 28-19.GBU

    Romans 12:1 in its entirety is such a powerful message. Verses 17-21 talks about not avenging ourselves, because it is considered animal behavior. Wow! When we humans quarrel and fight among each other we are no different from the animal kingdom. Yet, GOD gave us a beautiful mouth to reason, and to be peaceful toward our fellow man. So, do not let Satan, tempt you to act like an animal.

    The Lord Jesus has His Pastors in this age of Grace. And they preach the SAME message Peter preached in Acts 2:38 - and then you follow the way to Him in the epistles the bks. after Acts .
