We're raised in the faith, beginning the day our parents and grandparents took us to the Church. This is a wonderful event that pleases Christ.
Either way you look at it, Catholics renew their Baptismal vows every Easter. Plus, when we are at an age of maturity, we renew it with the Holy Sacrament of Confirmation. So this would be the individual on their own accord getting 'baptized' again.
I really don't understand the fuss you all make on baptizing infants. This practice was done at the earliest stages of Christianity. I don't know why the 'born agains' assume authority to change it....
Baptism is a very intense Christ focused interaction between those particpating and God.Bible references and Theology abound throughout the ceremony.The Holy Spirit's presence is felt strongly throughout.I dont care about shallow, disjopinted Bible quotes or people refering to the Bible to pull me away from this sacred ceremony. Christ is Among Us! He is and always will be!

Quote: In the New Covenant established by Christ, baptism replaces circumcision.
Not surprising coming from someone who denies Jesus is God. Spend some more time with the other atheists on the board here, they'll tell you a lot of idiotic things we Christians say.

When Jesus says "He who believes and is baptized will be saved" then says "He who does not believe will be condemned", it shows that one can be baptized, not believe and still be condemned. This means that one does not have to be a believer to be baptized. There is nothing in the bible about "believers baptism".
Anthony MN, I believe your statement is called "circular" thinking.

1. He who believes and is baptized will be saved
2. He who does not believe will be condemned
3. He who is baptized but does not believe is condemned
4. He who does not believe is baptized

Unusual.

You mock the Church for declaring someone a saint or talking about a miracle, and then you declare yourslef a saint and your fundmamentalist friends here talk about all the miracles God does for them. Pathetic if you ask me.
Php 4:21 Salute every saint in Christ Jesus. The brethren which are with me greet you....

The NABRE, to my knowledge does not have the word "saint"..why??

Same verse as in the KJV:
Give my greetings to every holy one in Christ Jesus. The brothers who are with me send you their greetings;

Sola scriptura as everything to do with it. It's your doctrine, you either abide by it or you don't.
The fact is Jesus gave us the command to baptize. You guys reject the efficacy of baptism, refuse to believe in the savific nature of baptism, ignore the overwhelming evidence of Christian teaching on baptism, and then, even though you're forced to admit your doctrine of sola scriptura doesn't support your contention that unbaptized babies will go to heaven, you insist it doesn't matter because God wouldn't dare make you responsible for ignoring Christ's clear command.
Horse apples...

Baptism is the holy ordinance by which persons are admitted as members of the Christian community. It is administered in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost; and is a visible and public profession of faith in Christ and his salvation, of vital union with him, of the obligation to live a new life according to his precepts and in his service, and of the expectation of sharing in his glorious and heavenly immortality.

It is not by any means to be regarded as a regenerating ordinance, though significant of regeneration. It was established in the Christian church by Christ and his apostles, and is binding on his followers to the end of time. The use of water in this ordinance is grounded in part on its qualities as the great element of purification, and on the rites of the ancient dispensation, in which "water and blood: were the divinely appointed symbols of moral renovation and atonement.

What we do know is that the infant has the Holy Spirit. The infant has a soul. Please show me the evidence that shows the interactions between this child's soul and Christ. Apparently you know the interaction. Apparently you know how the Holy Spirit and Christ connectas with a child.Please show the evidence that the SOUL that an infant child is incapable of some form of faith. Apparently we know what the SOUL of an infant is capable of.I thought Christ can reach into the soul of a child. He is God. He is love.

Anthony MN, you are telling us God changed? Under the Old Covenant baptism was not required for salvation but under the New Covenant it is required for salvation. Is this your belief?
It would seem God has changed His mind in as much some were baptized and others were not. Why did God change His mind?
We thought the New Covenant was the Covenant of Grace and the Old Covenant was the Law. Your saying God requires more of us under Grace for salvation than He did under the Law for salvation? Are you sure?
Anthony MN wrote:
<quoted text>
In the Old Covenenant it was circumcision and lots more, so actually, if you knew anything about Mosaic Law, you would know that it was much stricter.
Anthony MN, if baptism was not required for salvation under the Old Covenant but salvation is required under the New Covenant, how can the Old Covenant be more strict? Isn't salvation plus baptism more strict than salvation with no baptism?

Circumcision? Was this for males or were females included? I was thinking, if baptism replaced circumcision and baptism is required for salvation, then all females must be destined for hell because they were not circumcized? Or were they?

Mark Twain once wrote, "It ain't those parts of the Bible that I can't understand that bother me, it is the parts that I do understand."
Gee. Did it ever occur to you that if not everything that is real is not in the Bible, that things may be real that are not specuified in writing that you just made the Case for Tradition.

Interesting. Please provide a Biblical reference. Thanks."
Col. 2:11–12
Col. 2:11 In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:

In whom also ye are circumcised:
All that was designed by circumcision, literally performed, is accomplished in them that believe through the Spirit and power of Christ. It is not a cutting off of a part of the flesh, but a putting off the body of the sins of the flesh, through the circumcision of Christ; he having undergone and performed this, and all other rites necessary to qualify him to be a mediator between God and man; for, being made under the law, he was subject to all its ordinances, and every act of his contributed to the salvation of men. But by the circumcision of Christ, the operation of his grace and Spirit may be intended; the law required the circumcision of the flesh, the Gospel of Christ required the circumcision of the heart.

–12 Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.

Buried with him in baptism; by openly renouncing sin, and publicly professing to hate and forsake it; thus showing their deadness to its reigning power. Risen with him; from their death in sin, by believing on him, and thus experiencing in their own persons the same divine power which raised Christ from the dead.

Hermi, sorry. We do not know the infant has the Holy Spirit? We all are born with a spirit but not necessarily holy. We are all body, soul and spirit, right?

Hermi, the Holy Spirit is God in us. Jesus Christ was God with us.

Did Jesus tell us He would leave us an Advocate? The Holy Spirit.

Soul? Isn't our soul our personality and emotions. Does Christ connect with our soul or our spirit? I believe you you meant spirit, right?

When do we receive the Holy Spirit? At salvation.

The apostle Paul clearly taught that we receive the Holy Spirit the moment we receive Jesus Christ as our Savior. First Corinthians 12:13 declares,“For we were all baptized by one Spirit into one body—whether Jews or Greeks, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink.” Romans 8:9 tells us that if a person does not possess the Holy Spirit, he or she does not belong to Christ:“You, however, are controlled not by the sinful nature but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Christ.” Ephesians 1:13-14 teaches us that the Holy Spirit is the seal of salvation for all those who believe:“Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God's possession—to the praise of his glory.”

These three passages make it clear that the Holy Spirit is received at the moment of salvation.
