Don’t Botch Your Baptism

Don’t baptize babies

Only adults say Baptists!

Not programmed enough

“To deny in a child after baptism sin remains is to treat with contempt Paul and Christ.”

Pope Leo X

Baptism is either one of two of the sacraments or one of seven of the sacraments depending on what Christian denomination you subscribe to. Were you baptized as a baby or a young child or an adult? How and when you’re baptized depends again on what Chrisitan denomination you subscribe to. I can’t tell you which way is correct because the Bible covers it all. There’s a lot of debate on how you’re baptized: sprinkling, immersion, or pouring. Paul even re-baptized (Acts 19:1-6) others when he discovered that they weren’t baptized according to his methods. Should we baptize babies? There were entire households that were baptized and I would guess that there were probably babies and young children present.

I love traveling with my wife all over the world. I enjoy the study of nutrition and cooking plant-based meals. I consider myself a Christian agnostic when it comes to god and religion. Namaste, Vic

  1. It’s an interesting bunny trail to go down. Personally, I am in the camp that a person should be baptized after they have personally made a choice to follow Jesus and are making that statement to the world, friends and family. My oldest was baptized this Sunday!

    1. Hi Jason! My son was baptized as a baby in a very conservative Lutheran church. I was so ignorant at the time that I believed all churches baptized their young. Thanks for your comment and wish you well. Vic

  2. You’re welcome.. for what it’s worth I don’t think it is a requirement for salvation (see the robber who died on the cross next to Jesus), but it is an important step in a believer’s life, especially in places where Christians are persecuted.
