Since "It is God working in us" (Phil 2:13) as Christians (I Cor 12:11-13) why are today's Christians still water baptizing themselves?
"AND IF BY [HIS] GRACE THEN IS IT NO MORE OF [OUR] WORKS: OTHERWISE [HIS] GRACE IS NO MORE [HIS] GRACE. BUT IF IT BE OF [OUR] WORKS, THEN IS IT NO MORE [HIS] GRACE: OTHERWISE [OUR] WORKS IS NO MORE [HIS] WORKS"
SO WHY ARE WE WATER BAPTIZING EACH OTHER WHEN IT IS BY HIS GRACE THAT HE GAVE US (((THE PROMISE))) IN ACTS 1:4 THAT WAS SPOKEN OF IN JOHN CHAPTERS 14, 15, AND 16 WHO CAME ON THE DAY OF PENTECOST (ACTS 2:2-4)?
"GOD LAUGHS" (PSALMM 37:13).
YOUR PREACHER IS (((POWERFULLY))) WORKING BAPTIZING YOUR (((IGNORANCE)))
SINCE YOU BELIEVE YOUR PREACHER IS (((MORE POWERFUL))) THAT "THE SAME IS (((HE))) WHICH BAPTIZETH YOU WITH THE HOLY GHOST" (JOHN 1:33), YOU SERVE THE DEVIL (I COR 10:21)
>>>>>>>>>DENYING THE POWER OF GOD<<<<<<<< TO BAPTIZE YOU
>>>>>>>>"FROM SUCH GOD HAS TURNED AWAY"<<<<<<<<< (II TIM 3:5)!
"DEAD SPIRITS" (RM 5:12) "KNOW NOTHING AT ALL" (ECC 9:5) THEREFORE "HAVE NOTHING AT ALL" (((INCLUDING))) FAITH!

Because, quite obviously, that baptism is a "powerful WORKING of God." Col. 2:12 [ESV] " buried with Him in baptism in which you were also raised with Him THROUGH FAITH in the powerful working of God, who raised Him from the dead."
