Do I Need a Water Baptism?

Hi

I came to faith 6 months ago. I’ve listened to a lot of teachings, but mostly after some time, I stop listening to them as something in me feels like I’m being deceived ( including quite a few of the people on your list ) .

I wanted to ask ( apart from yourselves ) , are there any true teachers out there ? Any views on Peter Michael Martinez ?

Its only since coming to faith that I realize how much deception is out there.

My other major concern is water baptism. Do I need a water baptism ? How can I when the churches that I’ve attended ( and left ) are preaching false words. I do not want to be baptized by someone who is not true.

Any advice would be greatly welcomed.

Blessings,  Angie

Hi Angela, 

You ask about water baptism. Check over our site carefully for content, because you missed this section: Water Baptism. (The Site Map gives you an overview of everything listed at The Path of Truth.)

We don’t know anything about Peter Michael Martinez, but just looking at http://unitedforawakening.com/ and the introduction he gives about himself, we can tell you he’s false.

Peter Michael Martinez is a nationally recognized apostolic voice for Awakening. Well regarded since 1995 as an author, conference speaker, radio host, and bold voice of Awakening to the body of Messiah, Rev. Martinez brings a seasoned and balanced apostolic anointing to the United For Awakening team.

Can you really see the Lord Jesus Christ or one of His apostles talking that way about themselves? Read Counterfeit Christianity and Here Is the Way It Is.

As a Christian I am saddened by all of you. Your nasty banter is exactly what turns non believers away from Christianity. You lost more than you gained in this exchange.  My faith remains in Jesus.

People seeking the Truth are turned towards Christ when they see our exposure of false messiahs like Clayton’s artificial Jesus. They are so thankful that light has come to cut through the darkness of religious pretense and confusion. It’s idolaters like you who are offended and turn away from the Truth, “Christian” heathen whose empty Opinion is condemned by the Word of God made flesh.  2 Corinthians 11:13-15 MKJV (13)  For such ones are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. (14)  Did not even Satan marvelously transform himself into an angel of light? (15)  Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves as ministers of righteousness, whose end shall be according to their works. What makes you think false teachers, as Paul mentions, don’t preach what seems to be the True Gospel?  What makes you think the elect Jesus refers...
Laying Down One's Life Versus the Amish Faith
Subject: Amish faith From: Sam Zook To: Victor Hafichuk Date: 12/12/2015 12:39 PM Hello.  I have a few questions on Matthew 18:18..   I grew up Amish and when I was 17 my whole family left the old order amish because we felt they were teaching a works based salvation.. We were Mennonite (drove cars and had electricity etc)  for 2 years.. Then my parents wanted to go back to some kind of amish, so we could communicate with our relatives a little more.. So they found a new-order type amish church that thought salvation through faith.. And being born again etc.  They don't have man made rules tied to the church.. They live solely on the bible.    Anyway, I met a girl from a strict old order church and we fell in love and are planning on getting married in May....  But in order to marry her I have to move to her church and become a member there.. At first I didn't like that idea cause they believe in a lotta stuff that I don't believe is 100% truth.. (they have very low morals, their young people party, get drunk and are very wild...not unlike the young of this world, almost everyone smokes.. They don't talk about God much except in church.. And even then its only the preachers talking about God... They believe we cannot know if we are saved, that we just go through life in good hopes that we did good enough and attended church enough to reach salvation when they meet Jesus..  There's lot more stuff but I will touch on that later) But I decided I will do that so we...
Working for a Woman 'Pastor'?
From: Juli To: The Path of Truth Sent: Thursday, February 11, 2016 7:13 AM Subject: Thank you. Thank you so much for your site. I worked for a pastor for years here in Missouri and she taught me many of these things regarding the Truth. When she was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 82, we had so many pastors visit and tell her: well read these books and proclaim this or that. At that time, I remembered Job. The first sentence in the book of Job tells us he was a good man- not that he lacked faith. There is so much out there right now that is false, and many are being deceived.  Hosea 4:6 tells us, "My people perish for lack of knowledge." How are we to "love His appearing.." As in 2 Timothy 4:8, when we don't know Him? It seems we are in a time where many do not even attempt to find out if things line up with the Word. I really thought your words about Andrew Wommack were spot on. I couldn't stop reading as these are all things, as a church, we had discussed- and had people tell us we were "overly critical." Well, I just wanted to say thank you for continuing in Truth. We need it in these times.

This is the Lord’s site – all His doing. Perhaps you spoke too soon thanking us for the site and for continuing in the Truth. What do you make of this Diabolical Doctrine?  ...
