Gregory Dairy

This has in no way any relevance to your Blog site, so I would like to apologize up front for any inconvenience I may have on you. I happen to do a Google search for milk bottles from my grandfather’s dairy farm, Gregory’s Dairy. I typed in "Gregory Dairy" milk bottle in Google and came upon one Google entry: 


But we do have an old, old milk bottle that has "Gregory Dairy" in orange lettering on one side and a picture of a baby on the other side.

I was wondering how I could contact this person to see if this milk bottle is actually from my grandfather’s dairy. I only know of two existing bottles from the dairy that I have found myself, and I gave one to my grandmother some years ago for Mother’s Day and I gave the other one to my aunt years later. I would like to have one for myself, just as a keepsake.
Please let me know if this is possible. Thank you for your time.

Salvation as an Essential Doctrine-Part 5

Salvation and Baptism

Acts 2:36-42 (NASB95) 
36 "Therefore let all the house of Israel know for certain that God has made Him both Lord and Christ—this Jesus whom you crucified."
37 Now when they heard this, they were pierced to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, "Brethren, what shall we do?"
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.
39 "For the promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off, as many as the Lord our God will call to Himself."
40 And with many other words he solemnly testified and kept on exhorting them, saying, "Be saved from this perverse generation!"
41 So then, those who had received his word were baptized; and that day there were added about three thousand souls.
42 They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.

There are those who read this passage of scripture and immediately jump to the conclusion that this is a formula for salvation. So they believe a person must be water baptized in Jesus name (not the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) before they are born again. (Some even believe speak in tongues since this passage is about the promise.) If this is the only passage a person reads and does not look at the context and other Bible verses, it would be easy to believe it is a formula for salvation.
