You are a Catholic because you are vain. Catholics believe that Jesus loves ONLY Catholics.

If you believed that Jesus loved Atheists, you would have nothing to lose by being an Atheist.

If you believed that Jesus loved Protestants ... you would have stayed in Protestantism.

You are a Catholic FRAUD, double-talking that you now believe that Jesus loves everybody without conditions put on the love.

Not as an infant, Anthony....
Baptism is also a lifetime covenant with God/Jesus...
The "new covenant" accomplished what the old covenant could not... the removal of sin and cleansing of the conscience.
What sin has the infant committed???
What cleansing of the conscience does an infant need???
Now why doesn't St. Paul add the infant caveat?

Why was the purpose of circumcising 8 day old infants?

<quoted text>you always tell us that we don't follow the teaching of the Apostles so which apostle ever taught that water baptism saved anyone. we know that Peter didn't since the gentiles received the Holy Ghost and then were Baptized in Water.
perhaps you don't understand what peter was saying when he said baptism doth also saves us, Perhaps?
the experience that he had with the gentiles DOES NOT agree with those few words that he spoke later, do they?
we also know, don't we, that Paul called Jesus Lord before he was baptized, don't we?
thru the NT, the correct and only mode of Salvation came thru belief and then followed by water Baptism. maybe Jerome changed the sequence due to more pressure put on him by false teachers?

Not always true....but I am always on another page than you.(smiles)

Romans 8:24 "For we are saved by hope...."

The modern view of faith and belief, mainly by mainstream non-Catholics supersedes hope. Please note, that faith always has the flip side of hope. Though Paul does not emphasize hope as often as he does faith.

But of course we have the three mentioned; faith, hope, and love, the three theological virtues.

I find it rather sad, that hope is sort of left behind by most Christians, in the sense that they don't really have a working knowledge of its spiritual value....

Marge,
The Word of God affirms that baptism is a work of God.
It is commanded by Him.
Baptism is expected of those who desire His forgiveness.
32 And John bore witness,“I saw the Spirit descend as a dove from heaven, and it remained on him. 33 I myself did not know him; but he who sent me to baptize with water said to me,‘He on whom you see the Spirit descend and remain, this is he who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.’ 34 And I have seen and have borne witness that this is the Son of God.”

June on the Mark(again)

Yes I am vain.

And you are circling my thinking on the subject, and I know it is hard to pinpoint.

The point is that Jesus loves everyone, especially sinners like me.
Remember, God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son....(John 3:16)

Glad you see....In trying to define me, I can always slip through a definition, yours or anyone else....There is no wall I cannot pass through, nor darkness to great, that I do not have remaining faith, hope, and especially love.

So, Marge, you don't believe God is working in your water-baptism?
If water-baptism never saved anyone, why is God working in your water-baptism???
Who has the saving power???
Apart from the work <<<of God>>> we CANNOT be saved.
Colossians 2:12
12 having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through your faith in the ~~~working of God,~~~ who raised him from the dead.
God never [worked] in the Salvation of Cornelius, since he had already received the Holy Ghost before he was Baptized unless Campbell took that our of your doctrine.lol

people like you try and get people confused over what Salvation really is and WHEN it occurs.

but hey don't worry, you will have all eternity to ponder over your evil works along with your false teachers.

Psalm 51:5
Rom. 5:12
Psalm 51:5

5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.

This is from a Psalm of David after his sin with Bathsheba.

It deals with the sin of an ADULT, and shows the repentance of an adult.

Look at David's repentance:

Psalm 51:10-13

10 Create in me a pure heart, O God,
and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

11 Do not cast me from your presence
or take your Holy Spirit from me.

12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation
and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.

13 Then I will teach transgressors your ways,
so that sinners will turn back to you.

"The person who sins will die. The son will not bear the punishment for the father's iniquity, nor will the father bear the punishment for the son's iniquity; the righteousness of the righteous will be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked will be upon himself."

Sin is not something we are born with...on the other hand, it is something we do.

Sin is an ACT committed by the individual.

Romans 5:12

12 Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned—

This is death through Adam, Life through Christ Jesus....

Because Adam sinned but because every human being after Adam sinned.

"All sinned" is each and every person born into the world has sinned.

The Bible does not say that we sinned in Adam.

Be that as it may, "The parallel of baptism / circumcision is obviously to babies, since in both cases the baby has no idea of the Covenant (or regenerational) significance of what is happening."

I couldn't care LESS what the romanist encyclopedia claims. There was no contradiction. Jesus is God Incarnate, the Son of God the REAL HOLY FATHER.
From what you are saying, if I said the sun rises in the East and you said it rises in the West, you would see no contradiction!!! You would argue both statements are true and correct!!!!

SON OF GOD: a peculiar appellation of Christ, expressing his eternal relationship to the Father:

Ps 2:7;I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

Da 3:25 He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.

Lu 1:35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

Joh 1:34 And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.

Mt 8:29 And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time?

Mt 27:54 Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.

Joh 3:16-18 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

You said you are a preacher?????

All have sinned. We are born with it. All have need of the washing away of sin through baptism.

Really???

That means that while in the womb we formed thoughts, words, had desires, did actions, or omissions of actions, contrary to the law of God, or defective when compared with it!!!!

Sin: Any thought, word, desire, action, or omission of action, contrary to the law of God, or defective when compared with it.

I am well aware what some Protestants do and many Do not. Nor do they help in a Christian walk. Making a claim and doing so are very different and what Protestants do in here daily is beyond vile. I am also aware it doesnt take and I am also aware that other Protestants will say they werent really saved and at the same time say that they can know for sure. I am aware that some Protestants say its a repentant lifestyle while others do not.
You live in a tiny bubble if you think all your brand of Protestant is walking a Christian life if at all while others are proclaiming it doesnt matter. This thread alone has brought out all kinds of conflicting protestant views. Again I ask you who said, "It would have been better for them had they not known the truth to the backsliders?
You Protestants are all over the place. The only thing you all have in common is your right to infallibly interpret the bible with your opinions with no basis of authority other than your personal opinion making you a teacher and therefore more responsible in teaching error. You create chaous and confusion and endless doctrines to tickle your itching ears.
What Christian d,have in COMMON IS BELIEF in Christ the Saviour..
I assumed we,all did .

NOW do all Christians NEVER SIN.

God said, "This my covenant which you shall keep between you and me and your descendants after you. Every male child among you shall be circumcised, and you shall be circumcised in the flesh of our foreskins, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and you. He who is eight days old among you shall be circumcised, every male child in your generations, he who is born in your house or bought with money from any foreigne who is not your descendant"

All uncircumcised people were cut off from being in Abraham's family.

Circumcision was imposed on the nation of Israel by the Law of Moses.

**********

The Circumcision In Christ Jesus:

Colossians 2:11-14

11 In him you were also circumcised with a circumcision NOT performed by human hands. Your whole self ruled by the flesh (SIN) was put off when you were circumcised by Christ,(BAPTIZED)

12 having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through your faith in the working of God, who raised him from the dead.

13 When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive with Christ. <<<<<He forgave us all our sins,>>>>>

14 having canceled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross.

"He has made us alive together with Christ spiritually, having forgiven us all trespasses.

Again, what SIN has an infant/small child committed against God???

The circumcision of Christ forgiveness of all trespasses (SIN) in our lives against God...adding us to God's spiritual family, the church.
