My parents faith brought me to the Church for my baptism. I was made a new person in Christ through water and the Spirit. I've renewed my baptismal vows at least a hundred times since then. I've professed, with my lips, my faith in Christ countless times.
Did you receive or start your salvation at your baptism?

Wow!! we can become a new person in Christ without even knowing Him. I'm afraid to ask but where do you get that from? Please don't say baptism again, you don't know Christ at 3 months old.

From catechism on baptism:.27 Always, Baptism is seen as connected with faith:
If catechism says baptism is seen as connected with faith, where did your faith come from at 3 months old?
The Baptism of infants

1250 Born with a fallen human nature and tainted by original sin, children also have need of the new birth in Baptism to be freed from the power of darkness and brought into the realm of the freedom of the children of God, to which all men are called.50 The sheer gratuitousness of the grace of salvation is particularly manifest in infant Baptism. The Church and the parents would deny a child the priceless grace of becoming a child of God were they not to confer Baptism shortly after birth.51

1251 Christian parents will recognize that this practice also accords with their role as nurturers of the life that God has entrusted to them.52

1252 The practice of infant Baptism is an immemorial tradition of the Church. There is explicit testimony to this practice from the second century on, and it is quite possible that, from the beginning of the apostolic preaching, when whole "households" received baptism, infants may also have been baptized.53

Faith and Baptism

1253 Baptism is the sacrament of faith.54 But faith needs the community of believers. It is only within the faith of the Church that each of the faithful can believe. The faith required for Baptism is not a perfect and mature faith, but a beginning that is called to develop. The catechumen or the godparent is asked: "What do you ask of God's Church?" The response is: "Faith!"

1254 For all the baptized, children or adults, faith must grow after Baptism. For this reason the Church celebrates each year at the Easter Vigil the renewal of baptismal promises. Preparation for Baptism leads only to the threshold of new life. Baptism is the source of that new life in Christ from which the entire Christian life springs forth.

1255 For the grace of Baptism to unfold, the parents' help is important. So too is the role of the godfather and godmother, who must be firm believers, able and ready to help the newly baptized - child or adult on the road of Christian life.55 Their task is a truly ecclesial function (officium).56 The whole ecclesial community bears some responsibility for the development and safeguarding of the grace given at Baptism.

Well Chuck, I can produce the photographs (black and white, I'm over 50, lol, the certificate, the Church records, etc). In other words, I have more evidence that I was baptized than you have that you are saved and guaranteed heaven.
Ahh..forgot about photos. But you did not remember your baptism correct?

You don't properly understand scripture. You don't believe baptism does anything, that's why you don't understand it and why your beliefs are so different from the first Christians.

Faith AND baptism. Jesus said it.
Where does He say in what order they have to be?
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.”

So there is no reason why Jesus said make disciples first and then baptize?

Really Tony...really?

Yeah. I even have pictures.

Did you get saved for all eternity with no chance of ever loosing it when you professed Jesus? Can you post the pictures of heaven on your facebook page?

a photograph of my salvation? I'm not a smart guy but... huh?

Why would I need a photograph, a true born again Christian remembers the day of salvation. I'm sure you do too right...well no, how could you, you were 3 months old.

The Didache and Scriptures were written while the first generation of Christians were alive. It was a general belief that Christ's return was imminent. They believed the necessity of baptism, that it conveyed grace and was the act of being born again of water and the Spirit, putting on Christ and entrance to the Church. As Christians lived on and started having children, they baptized them as soon as possible.
Ok but the,first Generation had,babies,too..And I know,they thought HE,was,coming soon
A gist for us,in their realizing they should leave a,written word for the next generation

But also no talk in First Century??? of TransubstAntiation in this,work ..

Catholics use this verse to support infant baptism:
15 Now they were bringing even infants to him that he might touch them. And when the disciples saw it, they rebuked them. 16 But Jesus called them to him, saying,“Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. 17 Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.”

**Tony...why do you suppose Jesus didn't baptize these children if in fact baptism saves us?

**wait... I got the catholic answer, "it doesn't say He didn't baptize them".

That is what your parents and your Catholic theologians WANTED you to believe.

:)

The Jewish theologians taught their followers entirely different theology.
