  • Re: Is infant baptism from the Bible?

    I believe everybody understands you are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. But not very many people knows how this process takes place. I would like to share with you how I understood it from the Bible.

    It all starts with the sinners dying with Christ on the cross (2 Timothy 2:11). Jesus does say "if you don't take up your cross you are not worthy of me". This death is done by the spirit of Christ (Roman 2). It is called the circumcision of the hearts. A person must first understand and publicly confess who Jesus Christ is, what he has done for sinners in the past, and what he is doing now to save sinners (Roman 10/Acts 8). Then the person can confess Jesus publicly when he/she believe in their heart that these things are true (John 1:12). Jesus required this public confession of himself to help people know that the confessor belongs to God and Christ now (1 corinth 14:33/1 John 4/Luke 12/Matthew 10). God will then send the spirit of Christ into that person's heart and prompt him/her to call out "father father" in Jesus's natural human language (Galatians 4:6/Roman 8:15). The believer also know that it's the spirit of Christ that he/she had received from God (Roman 8:16). The apostle Paul said the believer is now united with Jesus Christ in spirit (1 corinth 6:17). The believer has officially been born again and they are now ready to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ (John 3/Matthew 28/Roman 6/1 Timothy 2:5). Then the believer can follow the Spirit of Christ to love others and do good works (Roman 8/Hebrew 10:24). So salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ (Ephesians 2).

    Can anyone say in good conscience that a infant can do all that? If you do then you share the same mental ability as a infant. If you say that people are somehow saved without grace then you are under God's curse for trampling on the son of God, hating his blood sacrifice, and enraging his spirit by perverting the gospel of the glory of Jesus Christ (Hebrew 6-10/Galatians 1). No one is saved by faith alone whether that is your faith or your parent's faith in this age of grace. Jesus Christ is not even in the levitical priesthood according to king David and the writer of the book of Hebrews (Hebrew 7). So how can anyone be chosen to serve God before they are born? Are you trying to be the Son of God himself? God has made the covenant with Abraham and his offspring. It is one offspring not many offspring according to the apostle Paul (Galatians 3:16). Even Abraham is saved by God's grace through faith (Hebrews 11:17-19). It was God who provided the sacrifice on that mountain to replace Abraham's son Isaac. That was a foreshadowing of God's grace in Jesus Christ on the cross.

    In conclusion infant baptism is only for those who wants God to curse them and their children for hating God's grace in Christ. It is only the Jews wannabe that wants to "mutilate their flesh" without keeping the rest of the law. They should've just stuck with the penance and indulgences. Why hurt another human being just for the amusement? You snakes!
