  • I am pentecostal and we don't do infant baptisms. We believe in waiting until the child is old enough to make the decision on their own.

  • I'm Eastern Orthodox, and we baptize infants. We don't believe in "age of accountability". Every child of God is different, but all are loved by God, regardless of their age. But we believe baptism marks our entry into the Church, and thus into the Kingdom of Heaven. Children, even infants, are just as welcome into the Church as older children and adults.

  • If that murderer repents with his whole heart, believes in Christ and asks for forgiveness - yes.

    We don't believe God's mercy is "ranked". God forgives us all.
