We are commanded to make disciples the same way Jesus did by demonstration. Did I need man to baptism me? Absouetly not, for I knew God way before mans rituals for baptisms, sprinkled, splashed, or dunked. What God sees of man is his character, he could care less if you were dunked in water, all He cares about is you be like Him by the sameme mind be in you that is Gods same mind and walk in His light as He is in the light.No one said they were the same. STRAWMAN
Point is we are commanded to make disciples, BAPTIZING them in the name of the Father, Son, Holy Ghost.
Most try and make disciples according to their laws to govern a belief instead of making disciples by living example as Jesus lived it. Jesus was clear if you cant believe that what I say then believe that what I do. You to are supposed to live the very same life as Jesus did in thew Father.
My Gods salvation isn't about what God does for me but what He puts in me His same disposition that of Love. Holy Love, or Holy Spirit that Love is referred to for God is a Spirit and that Spirit is Love, for God is a Spirit and man is the place He resides to be perfect as Love that God is, is perfect.
Jesus commanded that we be ye therefore perfect even as your Father in heaven is perfect. Not very many actually follow Jesus to be like him do they? Do you, are you perfect as God in heaven is perfect? There is only one place one can be right and that is to have Gods same mind and think as He thinks, and walk in it as He walks in it!
