Question: Did Philip speak to the Eunuch about Baptism?
Acts 8:35-36 Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning at this Scripture, told him the good news about Jesus. 36 And as they went on the way, they came upon some water; and the eunuch said [to Philip], Look! here is water. What is preventing me to be baptized?
The facts are, things unwritten in Scripture, can have MORE basis in truth and reality than things that ARE written in scripture (OT especially). This is why the Church says NOT to read the OT as a historical book. Christ says ‘It is written’. These written things he cites does not hold a lot of weight as far as Christ is concerned.
But by extension though, you would have to take on the Anabaptist/Jewish/Masonic view that Christ was ‘the best interpreter’ of the OT. The Anabaptists decieved me into the same lies long ago. They want you to place the OT as you idol, and then everything else, including Christ, stems from the study of the OT Scripture. So to be like Christ, study OT Scripture really well and see the light of the OT like Jesus must have. (because they dont understand that he was God and light and dark dont mix).
I would say to you, Christ had no need whatsoever to follow the law, be crucified on a cross, get punished, etc. I would say that Christ came as a stranger introducing a new God that was foreign to those people. I would say God was setting up the Roman empire to recieve Christ and be his true people. I would say that Christ could have been born through Mary wherever Satan ruled the earth and whatever religious system was setup so he could take the monopoly he held over God and set us free. I could say the OT had no requirment whatsoever on humanities salvation. This is the problem with Anabaptists/Masons/Muslims/Jews. They think God begins in a written philosophy.
Actually, other beliefs, more grounded in metaphysical science like Platonism are/were MUCH MORE closer to the truth of God. Just ask any St. Augustine and the other Church Fathers their background. This is why they ONLY interpreted the OT as typeshadows. God chose these scholars for a reason. I would MUCH rather be a Manichean than follow whatever is in Mosaic Law. The ONLY TIME the Chatecism says you are garunteed NOT to have salvation is if you attempt follow the law. That’s why Jesus says ‘YOU’RE LAW’ not ‘OURS’. And in that verse, he is referring to the WHOLE OT.
The Old Testament essentially teaches carnal desires and temptations that has led to countless wars, violence, schisms. It teaches a personal relationship with a host of demi-gods to fulfill a particular desire. It teaches to make offerings to idols to appease a legion of demi-gods. Making offerings to man made idols. Making humans as idols (last chapter of Job). Promoting Human Sacrifice, Child Sacrifice, animal sacrifice, false promises of salvation, incest, child abuse, rape, etc.
Romans 1:7 CALLS those ONLY who are in ROME - NOT readers of a Bible.
