    Jesus said in Matthew 28:19 to baptize in the NAME (SINGULAR) of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

    What is the name he was talking about and why don't Trinitarians use that name. Why do they say over the Baptismal candidate, that they are baptized in the name but never use the name.

    They are baptize in the name of Jesus.

    Galatians 3;27-For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

    Baptized into Christ means brought into an intimate relation with Christ.As such they have put on Christ.

    God Bless.

    I responded in the other thread but here it is again:

    Your understanding of the expression "in the name of" is flawed.

    From dictionary.com:

    Idioms:
    in the name of
    2. By the authority of: Open up in the name of the law!
    2. For the reason of; using as a reason: grisly experiments performed in the name of science.

    The singularity of "name" in the context of the idiom is irrelevant; "name" in such a context will always be singular (i.e. you could say "in the name of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John"). What is relevant is that the verse goes on to say "the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit", rather than just saying "in the name of [any one of those three]" or "in the name of God".
