I had by baptized by sprinkling in the Anglican church but I felt like I needed baptism by immersion so I had it done in Parklands Baptist almost 20 years ago. What's your thoughts on baptism? Is sprinkling enough? Is immersion Compulsory? There are pillars in Christianity just like in Islam such as pilgrimage to Mecca and praying 5 times a day. To me they include baptism by immersion and sharing holy communion as well as alms to the orphans and widows, fasting and prayer and going to a prayer mountain atleast once a year preferably to start the year. Among others. My question to believers is, is baptism by immersion Compulsory?

Baptism by the spirit is the only thing I know, all these symbolized baptisms of Christianity, Hindu, Islam is all bullshit. The target is to make you think within a given range. Baptism is just something created by human beings. Sometimes I do imagine my great grand ancestors from 1000 or 0092 years back that were never baptized. Anyway, we must know that we chose to be born but forced to live our lives. Many people are confused in this world. Religion is there to limit our imagination and prevent us from waking up. Wake up experience nature and get inline with nature.

So you believe in baptism by fire of the Holy Spirit but you also think religion limits our imagination? The symbolism is one of being born again or resurrected. When the pastor baptizes you he says, you have been resurrected with Christ, walk now, from this day forth, in the newness of life.

Who is Christ? Everything about Christ does not add up, nimesoma bible for ages but these stories don't add up. Somewhere somebody is working on how to project Jesus images on the sky lite beam something technology. We have been made to fear the unknown. The Bible is just a Brotherhood document that illustrates the brotherhood agenda bit by bit. Baptism is only through awakening of the brain and consciousness. The satanic baptism is all to make us think in one direction which is the target of the brotherhood (the few who control the world). Watch this movie: Invasion Planet Earth

Baptism is a symbol of being buried and rising to live with Christ.
KJV Romans 6:3-4
3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
John baptized by immersion, disciples did so as well. The Bible if the standard of doctrine, there can not be other way. Baptism is by immersion, baptism by other methods is just but men traditions.

Very interesting geological question.

Right off the bat, yes, you MUST be baptized.

That's not to say if you die unbaptized you're locked out of heaven. We see this with the thief on the cross.

It is, however, vital if you are to live a righteous life. Baptism is an important step in the destruction of the old nature.

Why is it unnecessary when everyone was expected to do it?

In the words of the Lord:

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit

Acts 8:34-37
34 And the eunuch said to Philip, “About whom, I ask you, does the prophet say this, about himself or about someone else?” 35 Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning with this Scripture he told him the good news about Jesus. 36 And as they were going along the road they came to some water, and the eunuch said, “See, here is water! What prevents me from being baptized?
