Blog – Day 10 – Which type of baptism is correct?

 

There are Christian religions and people that believe God sends people to hell that aren’t baptized by immersion.  I’m not sure, but I think that Protestants and Catholics started baptizing infants because they were afraid God might send a child to hell if they weren’t baptized, and it is dangerous to baptize an infant by immersion.  I know that God wants us to be baptized to show our faith, but I believe that the baptism required to be saved is by the Holy Spirit and that Jesus does that when we declare our belief in Jesus and show repentance.  What I am sure of is that God is saddened when his family is torn apart by their differences in beliefs as Christians because he wants us to form one body.  1 Corinthians 12:13 states:  For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body – whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free – and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. Do you think that all Christians should agree that we can disagree about everything except that Jesus Christ is our Savior and that he rose from the dead to be with God in heaven?  Do you believe that all churches should work together to spread God’s love in a community and try to focus on what we agree on instead of disagree on?

  1. Is it a personal decision? I feel completely comfortable with my baptism as an infant. I don’t feel I need to have a baptism by immersion.

    1. I definitely feel that it is a personal decision. It is a ritual to show our love and obedience or, in the case of infant baptism, our parents’ love and obedience to Christ. Membership in some churches, such as Baptist, Church of Christ, and some Independent Christian churches require baptism by immersion because it is the way that Jesus was baptized and symbolizes the burial of our sins and rising to everlasting life in Christ. The Catholic Church requires that you be baptized in the Catholic Church (by sprinkling). But as I said it is a ritual and the baptism needed for salvation is baptism by the Holy Spirit which God has given you “If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9)
