Acts 2:38 and Acts 10:47, 48 are both talking about water, but not for the remission of sins, but for an afterward appearance of acknowledgement.
When you make a statement like that which is so flagrantly false, then I tend to dismiss anything else that you have to say. How can you deny that Acts 2:38 is not for the remission [forgiveness] of sins?
Act 2:38 Peter said to them, "Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Act 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent
, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Act 2:39 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.
Act 2:40 And with many other words
did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.
Act 2:41 Then they that gladly received his word
were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.
Act 2:42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and (nothing here denotes water, only word, as baptized here means to join yourself to Jesus through repenting and you will receive the Holy Spirit)
Act 10:42 And he commanded us to preach
unto the people, and to testify
that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick and dead.
Act 10:43 To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.
Act 10:44 While Peter yet spake
these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word.
Act 10:45 And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Act 10:46 For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter,
Act 10:47 Can any man forbid water, (word because they were Gentiles) that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we?
Act 10:48 And he commanded them to be baptized (joined together with Christ) in the name of the Lord
. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.
Jimmy and Gomer as I have underlined in these verses it is not about water, but all about the word of God and remission of sin. There is nothing wrong with water baptism, but no dirty river water has ever saved anyone. Water is only an outward appearance like I explained already. What about those who can not be immersed in water because of Physical ailments does this mean their sins will never be forgiven! One more note is that sometimes the word water in the Bible stands to represent Gods word such as in living water.
