Churches who baptise infants or little children are usually ‘Nicolaitan’ in nature, aiming to harbour as large a congregation as they can get, not disappointing anyone but also filling their churches with all manner of unsound people to accomplish their aims. So they will grab a child as soon as they can, else they could lose it to another church. This surely is not the work of Christ and the Holy Gospel.
The other thing those churches dear to do is to not actually Baptise (submerge into the water then pull-up out of the water ) but, mainly in Catholic churches, they even go as far as to pour a cup of water over your skull which they then gather in a bowl as it flows down. How deceitful and arrogant: how brutal! And why this? Because, as you can imagine, or you may have seen, it is a huge problem to move large volumes of water in the church, and also to discard of the used water is a problem. Properly build churches have Baptism pools built-in, as it should be. Or, indeed, they should go and find a river or a loch to perform the act. But certainly, they should not make things easy for themselves by ‘corrupting the Baptism’ as the Roman Catholic and other Catholic Churches do.
Those who join a church under false pretence, for whatever reason other than to join the church in the name of Christ, are baptised into that church, not into the Church of Christ.
Note that, if your church organization is not a Church of Christ, but pretends to be, as you walk into the Baptism earnestly, you will be baptised; even if a rogue minister/priest baptises you, as you did surrender to Christ.
Forcing somebody into the Baptism is not the way: that person shall not be baptised. John the Baptist called the people to ‘The Church’, preaching the word, asking them to repent, then come to the Baptism. You must accept Christ, then take the Baptism; walking into the Constitution through Baptism, through your own will. Any child taken to the Baptism by parents, in fact, has to be baptised properly, later in life – just like my self. They must walk into the Baptism by their own will as that will be their real Baptism. Many children who were baptised this way and, no doubt, subsequently lived a life of fornication and transgression should be baptised properly, repenting before they Baptise. And remember, there is only one repentance and only one Baptism, there is no second chance. So, were it possible, your prayers for forgiveness for sins committed after your baptism, would not be heard. Paul only states the following in the same spirit: else it would make no sense at all. HEB 10:26
Christians must understand that from the moment they become Christian they are members of ‘The Church’ which is not tangible, like the building here or the place there but is the Assembly of True Christians who walk in the 12 commandments and the doctrine of Christ.
HEB 10: 26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
HEB 10: 27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.
Note: ‘knowledge of the truth’ does not denote you having read the Gospel and knowingly doing wrong, but it refers to you having baptised and now experiencing the new person and the Holy Ghost: The Truth.
There is only one sacrifice for sin in the New Testament: repentance and baptism – nothing else. Through baptising, you sacrifice your freedom: from then on you agree not to willfully do that which God forbids (were this possible) for if you receive the baptism, you are one of ‘The Elect’.
