In my religion, we believe that is not necessary to baptize newborn or young children who do not understand. Because they are without sin and baptizing is supposed to be the washing away of sins when you reach the age of understanding (which varies). If you do beleive in baptizing babies, why wash away sins that aren't there?Please shed some light because I never understood on why this has been done for years

Some religions believe that babies are born with original sin.....this is from the Catholic encyclopedia
Original sin - a consequence of this first sin, the hereditary stain with which we are born on account of our origin or descent from Adam.
and so children are baptized at birth to take care of this. Then later on they are give the choice, (educated mind you, they must take classes) on whether they wish to stay with that religion. I am Catholic and baptized all 3 of my children within the first 3 month. I sincerely hope that this was an honest question and not an opening for people to bash what they dont understand fully. I think that there are many many beliefs and NO ONE RELIGIONG IS CORRECT.
