Don't bring your negative Christian views and opinions into this thread...this is not for that. So my daughter's two younger half brothers were baptized yesterday at their church. One is 7 and the other is 6. When her dad told me that this was going to take place, I just held my tongue... I just spoke with my mother and asked if she knew if my daughter (who is 9) said to her about anything of her getting baptized. And my mom said that, for her Christian Camp Registration form her dad had filled it out and it said she was. But my daughter claims she wasn't. Now here is where I have the problem...if my daughter was indeed baptized, and she said she wasn't, then the whole baptism was in vain....Why? Because in order for one to be baptized they need to understand why they are being baptized. Children are told why, but I hardly doubt the little ones can really grasp the full understanding...mainly they are doing it because they were influenced by their parents or church to do it. I remember I was baptized at the age of 10, and I was doing it because all my friends were doing it and the youth pastors said it was what we needed to do. (understandable so). But I felt I wasn't doing it with intentions of what God wanted me to do, and was doing more along the lines of I'm being told too. What is your take on this?
