I've been having a discussion on facebook with someone who said that he would rush a dying infant to be baptized. He also stated that Mark 16:16 indicates that you must believe and be baptized or be condemned to hell. I don't believe baptism saves your nor do I believe that not being baptized damns you. As I understand it baptism initiates a person into the visible church, but that does not mean they are members of the invisible church. Thoughts? ---------- Post added at 09:14 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:03 PM ---------- And of course let me clarify that I do believe that baptism is a command of God and a means of Grace. We must as Christians be baptized and have our children baptized or we are certainly in disobediance to God.
