Be 'Born Again'
Is a metaphor
Jesus used as reference to the ritual of Baptism.
3: 3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily,
verily, I say
unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
3: 5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto
a man be born of water and of the Spirit,
he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. Cliff:
water and the spirit means baptism and then you pray for the Holy
repenting is the contract you must read and accept and baptism is the
signature you must draw to bind this agreement between you and God.
11: 13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give
good gifts unto
your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy
to them that ask him?

you have read the Gospel
and have fully accepted it as the truth, you can then enter the phase
repentance and feel true remorse for your past sins - this
you can not do it. You may be dragged to tears or just feel deep
regret; either way this will be a very sincere and painful
in your heart. Without this you are not ready for the Baptism. Continue
in prayer, reading, studying and questioning. Once you are ready
to baptize you will consciously decide to discard all that God approves
of and embrace all that God approves of and commands you to do. Now you
are ready to be Baptized and receive forgiveness for sins you have
committed to this moment.

Also, those that are really

Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same

'humble your self like a child' as a mataphor for baptism. Like a
baby is submerged in to the water you allow another to do unto you

very little child you could not even repent for your sins, for you did
not understand the matter and so you were not baptized.
If you did not understand the Gospel or did not even read it before you

If you were baptized by any person who did not put you under the water
( baptize) and then lifted you out of the water again, you are not
either; for you are called to 'Repent' and 'Baptize' in the
of Jesus Christ.
In any of the above cases
you can yet properly baptize and, this time, as you really understand what you
are doing, you will be baptized.
Who Can Baptize:
Believer who has repented
and has been baptized to become a Christian can baptize a believer; for
now they also are holy (unlike the ministers of men) and are sound in
eyes of God. Were you ever baptized by a filth (pedo minister etc.) who was not at
baptized, but did you have no knowledge thereof, well, you are then
baptized, for you walked in to the baptism by your own choice and,
God through his dealings in the bible, God will not blame you for it,
you did not have the knowledge that the one baptizing you was a

How To Baptize:

Children should not be baptized as when a child was brought to Jesus he did not
baptize them, as it would surely contradict his doctrine, but
blessed them: see Matt.18:3-4.
Children are as we should become, after the Baptism - so why
them? The Holy among us should Bless Them, as Jesus
Many Christians pointed at
this, so then the churches invented the name 'Christening' to
those who are not at all called by God but by man, to bind as
fools as soon as possible to their church. Paedobaptism is
Christ, but a fraud.

when this man (Jesus)
had offered for all time one sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the
hand of God.
That sacrifice is 'Baptism') for, because he brought us the Gospel, of
which the very heart is the Baptism of Repentance, he was crucified:
for he came because we have sinned, starting with Eve!
we deliberately keep
on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth (Baptism

Remember the mourning of the people of Nineveh,
in the story of Jonah? God tells Jonah to tell them that within 40 days
the city would be destroyed, for they sinned against God (but mind,
there was no baptism of repentance then). They mourned and they
were spared God's wrath, for their grieve was very real; and only God
could see it.
