Facebook Page

Hello - is there anyone out there?

I have been woefully neglectful of this blog and this will probably be the last post (not the bugle call you understand).  Eclectic Keepsakes now has a facebook group and we post on there as it is quicker and anyone in the group can post or chat.  So if there is anyone who reads the blog and would like to join us please do - we can be found here.  Even if you are unable to come along to our crops you will still be made welcome.

Hope to see you over on Facebook

  1. THE ETHIOPIAN EUNUCH BY STEVE FINNELL
    Why was the Ethiopian eunuch so concerned about being baptized in water?
    1. Did the eunuch want to be baptized so he could join the the 1st Church of Philip?
    2. Did the eunuch want to be baptized as a testimony of his faith?
    3. Did he want be baptized because Jesus commanded it and he wanted to be obedient?
    4. Was he in a hurry to be baptized because he realized that water baptism had nothing to do with the forgiveness of his sins?
    5. Did the eunuch want to be baptized because his sins were already forgiven?
    6. Did he want be baptized to demonstrate that he was saved before he was baptized?

    The answer is NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, and NO.

    The Ethiopian was in a hurry to be baptized because:
    1. He wanted his sins forgiven. (Acts 2:38)
    2. He wanted his transgressions forgiven. (Colossians 2:13)
    3. He wanted to be saved. (1 Peter 3:21)
    4. He wanted to be baptized into Christ. (Romans 6:3)
    5. He wanted to walk in newness of life. (Romans 6:4)
    6. He wanted his body of sin done away with. (Romans 6.6)
    7. He wanted wanted to live with Christ. ( Romans 6:8)
    8. He wanted to be saved. (Mark 16:16)
    9. He wanted wanted to be clothed with Christ. (Galatians 3:27)
    10. He wanted to have his sins washed away. (Acts 22:16)
    11. He wanted to be saved. (Titus 3:5)
    12. He wanted to enter the kingdom of God. (John 3:5)
    13. He wanted the Lord to add him to His church. (Acts 2 :41,47)
    14. He wanted to be sanctified. (Ephesians 5:26)
    15. He wanted to be blameless and holy. (Ephesians 5:27)
    16. He wanted to be free of spots and wrinkles.(Ephesians 5:27)
    17. He wanted to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. (Acts 2:38)

    THE CONVERSION OF THE ETHIOPIAN EUNUCH (Acts 8:26-38)

    Philip preached Jesus to the eunuch.

    The first question the eunuch ask was "What prevents me from being baptized?"

    Philip said Acts 8:37 [... "If you believe with all your heart you may." And he answered and said , I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God."]

    When Philip preached Jesus to the eunuch he must have told him what Jesus said in Mark 16:16 He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned.

    THE ETHIOPIAN EUNUCH WAS SAVED ON THE ROAD FROM JERUSALEM TO GAZA; BUT ONLY AFTER HE BELIEVED AND WAS BAPTIZED!

    NOTE: In the New Testament Scriptures there is not one single account of anyone denying water baptism as being essential for the forgiveness of sins. Not one mention of anyone saying I was saved before I was baptized. Not one person stated they were saved before baptism, but were baptized so they could join the local church. Not one individual said I was baptized as a testimony of my faith, but it had nothing to do with my salvation. WHY DO YOU NOT READ ABOUT THESE THINGS HAPPENING IN THE 1ST CENTURY CHURCH? WHY? BECAUSE THESE ARE ALL MAN-MADE TRADITIONS THAT ORIGINATED MUCH LATER. (SEE MY APRIL 17 POST---"THE PRICE OF TRADITION')
