IMO i do not think that children should be baptized. In the Bible when John the Baptist and Jesus were baptizing in the Jordan, the were baptizing adults. I feel that baptism is to ask the Holy Spirit to descend unto you and wash away your sins and prepare you and give you the strength to walk in the way of the Lord. To me children are pure and innocent and have no sin. So how can they wash their sin away? DH is catholic and have given me a lot of grief about not baptizing DS. I have explained our decision to them but they still dont agree. I have no problem with placing a hand on them and blessing them but i feel that baptism should be DS's own decision when he is ready. Lets debate CM

I agree with having them decide when they are adults. Our church doesn't baptize babies they only do a dedication and pray for them.
