The very best arguments for and against infant Baptism

Finally, we’ve put together in one place, for the very first time, the very best arguments for and against infant baptism.  We know it can be a divisive issue, even in the church, so we encourage all parties to lay down their theological bias’ and simply let the arguments speak for themselves.

We’re sure that after this evidence has been considered, all will arrive at the same conclusion that we have and there should be no need for further consideration.

  1. Where is the picture of the guy getting electrocuted because he was holding a wired microphone in the baptistery?

  7. My observation is that less is definitely more in either or both cases. Not terribly theological but my stomach hurt so bad I guess it warped my theological mind.

  10. There are two baptisms in the Bible, one is the Baptism of water and the other is the Baptism of Fire (Baptism of the Holy Spirit). When an infant is baptized, the original sin from our first parents, Adam and Eve are forgiven. The child, is now in Grace, this is very GOOD. As the child grows up and is exposed to worldly/earthly deceptions/vanity, he again acquires sin, when He accepts our Lord Jesus Christ in Faith, He will receive the Holy Spirit and he will become the Temple of our Lord’s Spirit, He will be Holy Ground, he should not therefore make His temple dirty/unclean. He must read the Bible, acknowledge that we are our brothers keeper, we are given the grace to know our brothers and sisters, share our life with them, our help (physical, financial for all those who needs it), we become stewards of God’s Grace and most importantly share our Faith and help our brothers and sisters who have not yet accepted the Salvation of our Lord! The ONLY Mesiah of man for the forgiveness of Sins!

    May the Grace of our Lord be with you through the Holy Spirit in the hearts of all who believes in our Lord Jesus Christ !

    Your brother in Faith with the Eternal God, the God Almighty in Heaven, our Lord Jesus Christ and His Holy Spirit,

    • What kind of God would hold an infant responsible for the sins of Adam and Eve? Infants do not need forgiveness for or to be washed clean of sins they did not commit. The actul act of baptism is merely symbolic. A public profession of faith. It is the state of one’s heart that matters to God. Baptism has to be a personal choice from the heart to mean anything. It is otherwise pointless. Infants cannot yet make that choice, so there is no meaning to the act of infant baptism. It’s as simple as that.

  11. where is the scripture for infant baptism among Jew or gentile Abraham covenant is there among Jew by circumcise,but there is no infant baptism,even Jesus got baptism after 30 years,infant how they can repent from sin they don’t know what is which and which is what, baptism symbolic of death and resurrection.of Jesus Christ that’s what bible says repent get baptism you will saved. Through Adam and eve not sin through their sin curse is coming behind us because of their disobedient to the word of GOD. we were boned in to the cursed of earth,GOD didn’t curse ADAM AND EVE. INFANT BAPTISM IS NOT SCRIPTURAL .

  12. Hi Jeykumar,

    May the Peace and Grace of our Lord be with you and all who are entrusted to you. Why was there a need for John the Baptist to baptize in water, if he knows that our Lord Jesus will baptize with the Holy Spirit? Is man saved by his repentance or is he saved by the Grace of God (our Lord Jesus Christ’s death on the cross for our sins)? When an infant/child is baptized in water,does he need to be repentant of his/her sin? Is the infant sinless? If the infant is sinless then he/she is full of grace like our Lord, but because he was brought into the world by man, he/she shares with the original sin brought about by the fall from the grace of God by our first parents Adam and Eve. This is why, infant baptism is a good thing because, though the infant has no sin to repent from, he is already forgiven from the original sin, because he was baptized in the name of the Father, of the Son and the Holy Spirit.

    Your brother in Faith with the Grace of God, our Lord Jesus Christ,

    Marlon
