    Peter declaration's consequence came the contrition to the hearts of those men and they asked: men, brothers what we should made? Peter commands that first they have to make repentance and after repentance they must take baptism in the name of Jesus Christ. And so they that received his word were baptized in the name of Jesus Christ.

    In this there is very clearly order, first sermon of the word of God then contrition and penance and then those who receive word of God into theirs hearts, only those were baptized. That word repent in the verse 38 is in the original language in greek metanoeoo, which means penitence, change of mind and beginning think about the other way . When contrition came to their hearts, so Pietari urged they to regret, what means that they confess their sins. When the penitence happened in man’s heart, after that the mind of the man will start step by step changes in according to word of God.

    The word of God says:

    - Proverbs 28:13: He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.

    - 1 John 1:8-9: If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    After making of repentance comes baptism and after making of repentance when man has confess his sins comes forgiveness of sins. After that man can receive the gift of the righteousness, which is Jesus Christ.

    Peter declared that the same promise had been given also to the child and all, who will hear the gospel. What was that promise?

    Promise belongs": Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call

    To the promises belong first the repentance and after that comes baptism. From the making of the repentance follows baptism. And from the making of the repentance follows receiving Holy Spirit and after repentance comes forgiveness of the sins.

    Promise didn’t mean to baptized the babies, but promises was that after repentance man shall receive forgiveness of the sins and Holy Spirit. Also Jesus said in the gospel: “Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.”

    Also the children can follow order of the gospel, what is making of the repentance and from the making of the repentance follows receiving Holy Spirit and after repentance comes forgiveness of the sins. Also after the repentance follows baptism in the name of the Jesus Christ.

    Lutheran church, catholic church and orthodox church teach against the word of God, because they teach that in baptism can have forgiveness of the sins and Holy Spirit and in the baptism man comes child of God. Bible teach that man comes child of a God through faith in Jesus and Holy Spirit shall given to man through faith in Jesus and forgiveness of the sins comes to man through faith in Jesus.

    You are posting in a Baptist only section of the BaptistBoard. I think we are well convinced on the teaching of believer's baptism.

    Further, your profile does not indicate you are a Baptist, and therefore, your posting is restricted to areas made available for others.

    Thank you, and welcome,
