What? Jesus is not ruling out Baptizing infants. You are!!
He is saying that "He who believes and is baptized will be saved"
He is not saying, "ONLY He who believes and is baptized will be saved"
You're saying this Ox, not Jesus.
Oh forget these religious garbage! Only science is true reality!

Salvation by infant Baptism? There is no guarantee of salvation for any of us. Infant or adult. I'm sorry if you think that we think our babies are automatically going to Heaven because we baptized them with water.
Sorry, there is no heaven, no hell, no devil and of course no god!

His One True Apostolic Catholic Church was biblically initiated and formed by Jesus ALONE---------- HIS OWN SPOKEN WORDS (especially) in the Gospels are going to take preferential TRUTH over "any cafeteria list of bible verses, that you "dig up" from the Old Testament!!!
Well, Jesus is dead for 2000 years ago perhaps dead as man. Not any gods of these thousands existed ever!

If you truly believe that, its odd you'd come on a forum to announce it. Most people are content with being an atheist and that's that.
The ones that preach it like its a religion are the ones that puzzle me...
Its almost as if they are insecure about their atheism.

A baptized baby who dies will go to heaven.
1257 The Lord himself affirms that Baptism is necessary for salvation.60 He also commands his disciples to proclaim the Gospel to all nations and to baptize them.61 Baptism is necessary for salvation for those to whom the Gospel has been proclaimed and who have had the possibility of asking for this sacrament.62 The Church does not know of any means other than Baptism that assures entry into eternal beatitude; this is why she takes care not to neglect the mission she has received from the Lord to see that all who can be baptized are "reborn of water and the Spirit." God has bound salvation to the sacrament of Baptism, but he himself is not bound by his sacraments.
1263 By Baptism all sins are forgiven, original sin and all personal sins, as well as all punishment for sin.66 In those who have been reborn nothing remains that would impede their entry into the Kingdom of God, neither Adam's sin, nor personal sin, nor the consequences of sin, the gravest of which is separation from God.

Stop giving these clowns an audience.
you missed my point.
I hope you don't feel you corrected me. Baptism is necessary for salvation. Yes. For those that
heard the gospel its necessary to get baptized.
God is not bound by that.
Nobody is guaranteed salvation just for getting
baptized. Adolph Hitler was baptized.

I wasn't talking about an infant who dies.

You say God did not guarantee Salvation??? Are you calling Him a liar!!!!
Let your 'word play' with Holy Scriptures stand before God one day. Don't get me to participate in this sin.

If you believe in your heart that you're saved because you read it, than I guess someone shouldn't have told you to privately interpret the scriptures.

we still have free will Ox, we can reject God anytime we want, before or after you read Bible passages.

You wrote

"There is no guarantee of salvation for any of us"

So you do not believe that the Bible is true...That the promises of God are fallible...If you do not believe God's word... then you have a real problem.

for it says...

2Co 1:20 For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.

___

Heb_11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

___

A Born again believer should have no fellowship with you...

2Co 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

2Co 6:15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

2Co 6:16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

2Co 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
2Co 6:18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

___

So you You think JESUS lied when He said...

Joh_6:37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.

DO You believe That John 3:16 is a myth???

oh 3:16 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.

Joh 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Joh 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in begotten Son of God.

THE UNBELIEVER IS INCLUDED ....RIGHT IN WITH THE MURDERERS

READ WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS...

Rev_21:8 But the fearful, and ===> UNBELIEVING,<=== and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

Confrint, can you, via free will, reject God or not?

If so, do you still receive salvation?

Doesn't have to be in the bible!! It's recorded all through Church History, for over 2000 years, beginning in 070AD. You've already given the TRUTH up, for your own "editorializing of Church History---I/We as Catholics will just continue to stick with the TRUTH! The Proven Historical and Biblical TRUTH of Jesus Christ and His One (and only TRUE) Apostolic Catholic Church.--You, jethro8 can "do what you want"--since you always have and probably always will!!
Prove it.

So far...... based on real-world, real-life evidence, the one true claim is proving to be absurd.

You know it, which is why you are here repeating the same mantra over and over again.

Otherwise, wouldn't your "uniquely guided by God," spiritual superiority be obvious to humanity after 2000 years?

Instead...

-- the Catholic church is a comedy club topic worldwide,

-- the sisterhood is all but gone,

--- the most devoted Catholic country on earth broke diplomatic relations with the Vatican, to force them to act morally,

-- and Jesus is made out to be a buffoon - tortured and died so that after 2000 years, he could save about 5% of humanity?

At some point, shouldn't the RCC bun contain some beef?

Sorry, this is a terrible track record for any institution supposedly appointed and guided by God.

Reality is a b*tch.

PS -- thank you for choosing to live in a society dominated by "untrue churches" and other heretics. I wonder why? HAHAHAHAHA

"Poll: U.S. Catholics back same-sex marriage"

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-250_162-57573233/...

A majority of Catholics also voted for Obama, in spite of all the RCC voting guides and classes.

So much for that "one billion Catholics" claim -- yet more BS from the one true church of denial.

But I am here to help.

The Church is not dictated by US polls.
Do you think Christ would like everyone to raise their hands to vote on what His Ministry is?
Catholics who are for abortion and same sex marriage are catholic only by name. They put themselves outside of the Church by rejecting her teachings.
Believe me, my own family is filled with those kinda Catholics.
They are free to leave the Church anytime.

The Priest sprinkling it on the congregation was authorized. Not Holy water itself. That goes back much earlier than that. Probably Apostolic times.
We do it as a reminder of our Baptism.
