Baptism

I read an article recently where the person was talking about traditions surrounding baptism. They were speaking about the unscriptural practice of infant baptism. It is impossible for an infant to be truly baptized as the ordinance is a person’s public proclamation that they have been born again. This is impossible, for an infant does not have the capability to respond to faith in Christ and follow that profession with baptism. Jesus told Nicodemus that unless a person is born again they will not see the kingdom of God. There have been millions upon millions who thought they were Christian because they had been involuntarily baptized as an infant.

    Infant baptism is a doctrine that originated in Augustine (the father of the Catholic church) and was embraced by most of those involved in the Reformation. Most Protestant churches teach this false doctrine that they say confers God’s grace to the baptized baby. God bless you:)

    • Thank you Eliza for the information. I am currently doing quite a bit of reading about the Roman catholic church, because my wife and all her extended family are catholic. I grew up in rural Tennessee and the closest catholic church was around 30 or 40 miles from where I grew up. All I was ever told about the catholic religion was that they would pray to Mary and that was wrong. Now I know many things they do are wrong.
