Christenings?

My grandchild is being christened this weekend and I am happy that my son and his wife decided to do this as neither are big church going people. However, others in the family don't see the point of it. What do you think? Should babies be christened if their parents believe in God and Heaven but don't attend services for their own reasons?

Baptism is a gift from God. It cleanses the baby from the mortal sin committed by Adam and Eve, and makes him a son/daughter of God. This is a blessing a baby must not be deprived of. I am glad that even if your son and his wife are not constant Church goers, they still believe in the sacrament of Baptism. Thanks to them that they still think of their child's salvation.

yes I do because christening is to make sure the baby would be part of the family of god, god didn't say that had to be part of a church. Jesus was (baptized for that purpose)
