MAKE YOUR OWN GOD

Have you thought about making your own god?
A lot of people in this old world do.  It does not
matter if it is an ignorant savage down in the 
South American jungle whittling one out of a
tree, or a sophisticated person from a cultured
country making one out of gold.  Or even an 
highly educated intellectual deciding in there 
mind what kind of a god they could believe in -
they all have one thing in common.

THEY DO NOT WORK.

They are like the the sculpture below.
It is only material, it lacks power.
No engine, no power.


"

"God is Spirit, and those who worship
Him must worship in spirit and truth."
(John 4:24 NKJV)

But there is a God who has been hearing and answering
my prayers for over sixty years now.  Has your god got
that kind of record?

He is found in the Holy Bible.
He created this old world and gives us life.
He loves us enough that He even died for us
then rose again.

His name is:

JESUS CHRIST.

WHAT HINDERS ME FROM BEING BAPTIZED? BY STEVE FINNELL

When the Ethiopian eunuch said "what hinders me from being baptized," did he mean what hinders me from being immersed, poured, or sprinkled?

Acts 8:36 Now as they went down the road, they came to some water. And the eunuch said, "See, here is water. What hinders me from being baptized?" (NKJV)

Acts 8:36 As they were going down the road, they came to some water; and the eunuch said, "Look! Here's some water! Is there any reason why I shouldn't be immersed?" (CJB-Complete Jewish Bible)

Acts 8:36 And , as they went on their way, they came to certain water; and the eunuch said, Look, here is water; what is there to hinder me from being immersed? (TBVOTNT-The Better Version of The New Testament by Chester Estes)

There are no translations of the Bible that translates Acts 8:36 as..."What hinders me from being poured or sprinkled."

The only place water baptism is expressed as sprinkling and pouring is in books written by men. Do preachers, pastors, priests, and the early church fathers have the authority to change immersion to sprinkling or pouring?

If preachers, pastors, priests, and the early church fathers have been given the authority to change immersion to sprinkling or pouring, then why can they not change water to olive oil or milk. The example of a man-made verse of Scripture. (Acts 8:36 Now as they went down the road, they came to some olive oil or milk. And the eunuch said, "See here is olive oil or milk. What hinders me from being poured or sprinkled?")

God has not authorized any preacher, pastor, priest, nor the early church fathers to change immersion to poured or sprinkled.

God inspired one book, the Bible.
