The word ONE means ONE and only one.The KJV of the bible leaves out the "only" from Eph 4:5.
There are many baptisms in the Bible, but only ONE applies to the body of Christ.Good thing too, as I know of at least 5 baptisms spoken of in the bible.
Heb 6 speaks of baptism in the plural too.
Irrelevant.Paul mentions two NT baptisms in Acts 19.
Irrelevant.Three if you count John's baptism unto repentance from sin
I don't have "my doctrines", I stick to what the Bible says. Paul says that there is ONE baptism for the body of Christ and it has nothing to do with water.If I really wanted to bypass remission of sins, and the washing by the blood of Christ, and the justification and sanctification of my vessel, the killing of the old man and being raised with Christ to walk in newness of life, and the circumcision made without hands, I might consider joining in your doctrines.
I am "immersed into" Christ without any water being involved. You think that you're a religious Jew/Christian.Strange that you don't consider every convert as a member of the body of Christ.
I would think it would be the folks who have forgone their "immersion" into Christ as the ones not in Christ.
They were most likely not part of the body of Christ, but part of what came before.So according to you, the twelve at Ephesus, who received the gift of the Holy Ghost at the hand of Paul, are not in the body of Christ?
I just can't agree.
