Infant Baptism

Advantages

  • Enables the child to receive other sacraments
  • If the child dies they will be with God which brings comfort to the family
  • Removes original sin and purifies the child
  • Gifts of the Holy Spirt allows the child to grow up strong in God's love
  • Natural for Christian parents to want to bring their child into the faith

Disadvantages

  • People are not old enough to make their own decisions
  • Jesus was an adult when he was baptised - "and when Jesus had been baptised, just as he came up from the water, suddenly the heavens were opened"
  • "and a voice from heaven said this is my son for whom I'm well pleased''
  • They don't get the chance to explain why they want to be a Christian
  • The ceremony celebrates death and ressurection of a Christian

Evaluation

Believers Baptism is more important as it is a re-enactment of the sacrament Jesus took part in.             Therefore as Jesus is the most perfect exemplar of human life you are pleasing God
