Social media commentator and activist, Michael Nwanator Jr. has written that water baptism is not for Christians, but rather a Jewish practice.
In a post he made on his Facebook page, Michael argued that Christianity has every trace of Judaism, which has been forced on the people just because of the many ‘benefits’ that come with it.
He however did not condemn water baptism, he only believes it is not a Christian practice.
Read his full post below:
Water baptism is a Jewish practice of baptizing Gentile converts to Judaism.
Yeah, Christ was baptised according to their practice then. If Christ was born in the South East of Nigeria, He would probably pertake in our practices.
I have said it before, Christianity has been mixed up with Judaism. True Christianity is gasping for breath to survive. The powerful people has reduced Christianity to almost nothing. All to control and enslave the people. They mix it up with Judaism because they want to control you. Lets look at Mathew 24:4-7
4 They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.
5 “Everything they do is done for people to see: They make their phylacteries[a] wide and the tassels on their garments long;6 they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues; 7 they love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and to be called ‘Rabbi’ by others.
The powerful fully understood that they can’t control you under PURE CHRISTIANITY, they had to mix it up with Judaism. Just like a mixture of fanta and coke and lots of people are drinking it.
Salvation has no link with water baptism.
Here is what Christ himself said in the book of Matthew 28:19
19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit
8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast.
1 John 1:9
9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
30 He then brought them out and asked, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”
31 They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household.”
Salvation doesn’t come through water baptism rather baptism of the Holy Spirit, that’s believing in Christ through faith. When you believe and confess your sins, the Holy spirit will come upon you, that’s the baptism the above scriptures is talking about not water baptism. During the pentecost, the Holy spirit came upon the apostles and disciples, that’s the baptism Christians need.
Religion is a very big box, inside the big box there are smaller boxes. You have to get out from all the boxes to be a true Christian. I am out from some boxes, I am working towards getting out entirely.
You can’t be a follower of Yehoshua/Christ and be a follower of man. In that building they called ‘Church’ even though a building isn’t a church rather the body of christ and Christ lives in humans not a building. A Message for another day. When they tell uou to practice something, let them show you were it was commanded by Christ, if none, don’t partake, let only the gullible and man pleasers do their thing.
Christians who wants to know the TRUTH should start reading the scriptures by themselves starting from the below books using New International Version (NIV) 2011 Bible.
And other new testament books.
There you will see the true Christianity as you read those holy books.
