Twice Isn’t Nice

I was watching the Jim Bakker show and the guest Perry Stone was talking about how God instructed him to be baptized a second time in order to clear away things that were weighing upon him.

Bah humbug. B.S. Nonsense. People who are baptized multiple times don’t understand baptism. You can only be cleansed of your sins and baptized into the family of God once. Confess that Jesus is Christ, ask forgiveness of your sins, and be baptized by immersion in water by another in the name of Jesus or in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Acts 2:38, Acts 19:5, Matthew 28:19.

The only mechanism to be cleansed of your sin after baptism is 1 John 1:9! It doesn’t matter if your afraid to confess. Your sins can’t be washed away in a second or third baptism.

If you’re seeking a verse that says you can only be baptized once I can’t provide one. I can say there is no example of a second water baptism of anyone in the Holy Bible. If you truly believed the first time, subsequent baptisms are futile.
