When I was a child my mom and dad had me baptized to a Catholic Church. I grew up with our faith as Catholics but I don't practice it. I am not happy being as religious as the Philippines. Baptism is one of the Christian menu to be able to earn money. I have spent thousands as witness or sponsor for baptisms. I had to pay for my presence as spiritual baptism witness. Is their anything more realistic than being registered in the Civil Registrar? What's the point of baptising a child with water, fire and holy spirit? Does the child needs it? Or is it the child who needed exorcism rather than the adults? I agree that children are innocent and they have their names already after birth. What do you think baptism for?

baptism for me is for adults only who now knows what is right and wrong...it is done when you have turned away from sin and accepted Christ as your Lord and savior...it an a symbol of you submitting yourself to Christ as a new person who confessed his/her sin and will live a new in Christ... when it is for a new born or child that should be dedication instead...it is symbol of thnksgiving and dedicating thier kids for the glory of God... hope this enlightened you a bit...hehehe

Hi Kofficup, Infant baptism is the way of admittance into the Catholic, as well as many other Christian churches. It is a symbol of the washing away of sin and comes from the belief in original sin, the idea that because of Adam's disobedience, all are born in sin. As I believe that children are innocent, I see no need for baptism. Blessings.
