How is it that God's Word can DEBUNK God's Word e.g. TWO baptisms after the cross (Matt 28:19+; Acts 1:5) but Eph 4:5 says one baptism?

Update:

Could it be the roman catholic church has ADDED LIES into Scripture to make you prefer a powerless water faucet baptism so you could DENY THE POWER OF GOD (II Tim 3:5) to baptize you (Jn 1:33)?

Do you know the belief that water baptism takes precedent over Jesus' baptism (Jn 1:33) leaves you a "DEAD spirit" (Rm 5:12-14; I Cor 15:21-22) because the POWER OF GOD didn't come upon you (Acts 1:8) Who QUICKENS you back to life (Eph 2:1) from your "DEAD spirit" and you're not "born again" (Jn 3:5-7)?

Update 2:

@ANON

    God’s Word cannot debunk God’s Word. 

    What you have done is debunk your irrational understanding of God’s Word and baptism ... Norine.

    There is currently only one baptism still in effect!

    It is the one baptism described and commanded in Matthew 28:19, Acts 2:37-41, Acts 10:47-48, Romans 6:3-18, 1 Peter 3:21, etc.

    For the number of baptisms, one must consider the time that is being considered.

    The events of Acts 2 happened about 30 AD.  In that chspter, there is the Holy Spirit baptism in verses 1-4, and the baptism that was commanded "in the name of Jesus Christ" in verse 38. 

    Likewuse, Holy Spirit baptism happened again in Acts 10, and Peter also commanded baptism in water. This was the last time (of only two times) that Holy Spirit baptism is recorded to have happened.  It's purpose and duration was fulfilled by this time.  This was about 37 AD.

    The Book of Ephesians, however, was written about 62 AD.  By that time, there was (and still is) only "one baptism" .  This baptism was the baptism in water. (Ephesians 5:26, 1 Peter 3:21)

    When you ask how many baptisms there are, you have to consider what time period is being referenced.  In Acts 2 there was the Holy Spirit baptism and baptism in the name of Jesus Christ.  By the time Ephesians was written, and now, there is only one!  Since Holy Spirit baptism is not referenced after Acts 10 & 11, but baptism in the name of Jesus continued to be commanded and practiced, then the latter is the "one baptism" that continued, and continues today!

     To show how a difference in time can change an answer, consider this.  If you asked someone in 1958 "How many states are there in the United States?", they would answer truthfully "48" !  If you ask someone today, the correct answer would be "50" !  There were two states added in 1959.

    If you ask about the number of kinds of baptisms in Acts 2, the correct answer would be "2" .  But after Acts 11, before Ephesians was written, the correct answer would be "One!". 

    That one is "the washing of water" (Ephesians 5:26).

    If that "proves" a contradiction, then the source is not inspired, but man-made.  If it is inspired, then the explanation is arrived at by exegesis (original intent).  Fortunately the explanation is obvious.  The promised miracle leads to the command, just as the creation of man and woman were a miracle, which leads to biological reproduction.

    Word for the day

    con·text

    /ˈkäntekst/

    noun

    the circumstances that form the setting for an event, statement, or idea, and in terms of which it can be fully understood and assessed.

    Scripture for the day

    1 Timothy 2:11-15 KJV — Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.

    Ta-da!
