The Acts 22:16 And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord.
If Baptism is washing away of sins, why baptize a babe? He or She can't even arise when you command him/her to do so.
I am a born Catholic but explanations regarding this practice, I can not comprehend. "It is the washing of the original sin of Adam & Eve" Huh, is that so!
Deuteronomy 24:16 The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death for his own sin.
Hebrews 5:13 For every one that useth milk is unskillfull in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.
Matthew 19:14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
If the kingdom of heaven is definitely for the children, why baptize them? We are all paying for baptism, death, marriages, house blessings etc. But what is really the commandment to the Apostles?
Matthew 10:8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
Now, you paid for your marriage? then your marriage is fake. You paid for your babe baptism then it is fake aside from being unauthorized and unnecessary.
