Baptism is another ridiculous ritual.who="Chuck"
I was not asking about the practice of infant baptism. Your twin Spin Brother Anthony does the samething. Does a 3 month old become a member of Christ without acknowledge of Christ as Savior...without acknowledge Christ as the Son of God...without acknowledge Christ by faith?
That's all I asked.
Performing a physical health measure to an infant (circumcision) is in NO way the same thing as baptism.
Baptism is a mater of the Spirit, and involves a relationship of the person and God.
Doctors might perform that first surgery...but NO PERSON can perform that 'surgery of the heart'. God said, "I" will put a new heart in you."
The idea that if men did not baptize a baby it would go to purgatory or hell was a teaching of those stupid men who caused needless worry and stress on already stressed-out parents.
