It's actually such a small wedding, she's not having a wedding party. Just close family and friends gathering at the top of a mountain at sunset.
Thank you for the blessing!

So I'm here to ask about children and baptism. My 8yr wants to be baptised. I think that this is great. BUT I think that I want him to wait. I'm thinking till he is 13 or older.

 

What do you ladies think?

post #335 of 462
My DS got baptized at 8, and DD at 7. I think as long ad its their idea (no one pressuring them), AND they have an understanding of what salvation and baptism mean.
I would be weary about making them wait if they are truly desiring to make this profession of faith.
Its my understanding that the age of accountability is different for each child. Once they have reached that age though, now they are accountable to be obedient to the Lord, who commanded baptism. So to deny a child the right to act in obedience to the Lord is a very slippery slope IMO.
And of course once a child has reached the age of accountability and has chosen to follow Christ, they must be allowed to partake in the Lords supper, and be guided in the proper way to do it.

Baptism also means different things to different people - for example, as Roman Catholics, we baptized our daughter at 10 months old!  I don't think she has much of an idea of what salvation and baptism mean (she spent most of the baptism chewing on her plastic toy hammer).

 

The ceremony was more for us, the PARENTS, and the godparents, to think about what it means to raise a family in a Catholic home, according to Catholic values.  And to bless the baby with God's love.

 

In case anyone is wondering - Catholics do *not* believe that the souls of unbaptized babies go to H3ll, and never did.  (For a long time, there was an idea that they went to "Limbo", but now the Church recognizes that the souls of unbaptized babies can go to Heaven, also.)

 

At the ages you're talking about, Naz and 3LilChunklins, we have different ceremonies - First Holy Communion (around 7 or 8) and Confirmation (around 13).  Those, IMO, are closer to what I think your baptisms would be like; the CHILD (or teenager) is making a choice to be accountable and profess her/his faith.  Am I understanding?   :)

 

I think there are a couple of other Catholic posters to this thread - I'd be interested in hearing their thoughts also!

Yes, accountable and profess her/his faith.

 

Thanks for your answers.

I think it's great that your son wants to take that step! I think that's a great sign that you're raising a fine man of God!!

Thank you everyone for your prayers for my daughter! She's been sleeping a little better and I believe that's God's work. We have her first OT appointment today. Really hoping it goes well. My marriage is suffering intensely from my lack of sleep and ensuing depression. DH is hurting from neglect and I'm not enjoying being a mom. I've been praying hard for a drastic and positive change to save our family/sanity.

I hope everyone is having a good week! We're leaving this weekend to visit our families for Thanksgiving. DD and I have soy and dairy allergies that we didn't have last year, so it'll be an interesting holiday! No one else in our families has allergies so we're the minority. Oh well...

HAPPY FRIDAY :joy

 

In the presence of the talmidim Yeshua performed many other miracles which have not been recorded in this book. But these which have been recorded are here so that you may trust that Yeshua is Messiah, the Son of God, and that by this trust you may have life because of who he is. JOHN 20:30-31
