And that's,what you believe is,right .<quoted text>
Did the Jew wait until he was 16 to get circumcised? I would hope not. Ouch!
His parents brought him before God as an infant. Christians do the same like Christ commanded, without the snip snip.
Confirmation is,closer to what we believe. HOWEVER ..we BELUEVE in acceptance of Jesus,Christ as Lord And Saviour ..being BORN AGAIN
into Salvation ..then getting Baptized ..HOWEVER .
THE difference is ..your CHURCH does it by age ..learn the words and ritual and get Confirmed ..But in this,day and,age a,12 year old MAY OR MAY NOT have true FAITH in Christ ...
It's,a heart and soul decision..And AGE has,nothing to do with TRUE BELIEF ..
You yourself talked about being hardly Catholic as a teen..YOUR words ..MINE TOO ...no offense meant
You may not have truly accepted JESUS in your heart till later..Clay ..
Only you know the answer to when you developed a true relationship
With CHRIST .
BE CLEAR ..I'M.GOING BY YOUR testimony which is,VERY SIMILAR TO MANY TEENS ...AND ADULTS ..And was,NOT meant badly ..really
It took.me decades,longer to come to CHRIST .......You seem to know,Christ ..
So do I ..the HOLY SPIRIT TURNS OUR HEARTS,TO CHRIST WHERE AND WHEN HE DOES ..by whatever means,He chooses...
I don't have a thing o say one way or another about baby baptism....But that is,not salvation ...for a grown person ..And dead babies are with Christ ..baptized or not ...
Thankfully there is no more LIMBO ..That I learned as a child ...
Just don't dismiss tHE Faith of the folks who are not CATHOLIC...
