Our children should be educated in order to make their own informed decisions about religion. Not have it chosen for them before they even comprehend
what it is. I don't understand a parent risking death in the name of religion, its truly idiotic, blinkered and indoctrinated thinking or lack of it.
Words spoken from someone in good intention but lacking understanding.
Baptism is what allows God into the soul. it's the stepping stone to communion and graces never before experienced in the soul. Santicfying grace
leading saints into ecstacies and so on.
But, the thing with the OP. it's not on the parents if this happened. Iv'e never heard of this before. It's on the preachers for baptising a baby
by dunking it under water.
That's NOT how you baptise a baby whop hasn't learned to hold it's breath. This has to be protestant.
Babies have always been sprinkled on the forhead in the catholic church.
" I thought unbaptized babies went to purgatory. Before they "invented" that I think they went to hell.
I think if a person proclaims they are a catholic then this is what they HAVE to believe. I hate religious hypocrites who pick and choose what to
believe even more than I hate religion. "
No they didn't invent anything. God clearly said.
whatever you loose is loosed on earth, and bind is bound in heaven. God set up a hierchy to interpret scripture so the whole congregation wouldn't be
divided on personal interpretation.
and as for you hating religion. I hate biggots who hate religion without understanding.
