Infant baptism is not a Scriptural doctrine. It is not found in the Bible. There is not one example in the Bible of one single baby being baptized. We will show that baby baptism is of pagan origin. It is my purpose in this article to set forth my reasons for saying, as I often have said, that... INFANT BAPTISM IS RESPONSIBLE FOR SENDING MORE PEOPLE TO HELL THAN ANY OTHER RELIGIOUS ERROR. From my point of view, it is a dreadful thing to baptize a baby and let him grow up believing that by that baptism he has been saved and is on his way to heaven. As we have said so many times, we believe all babies and children below the age of accountability are protected by YAHUAH respecting their eternal soul. I do not believe-that any child below the age of accountability has ever gone to hell. Of course, there is no differentiating between those who were baptized as infants and those who were not. Little children certainly can come to YAHUSHA HA’MASHIACH
when they are old enough to understand that YAHUSHA
died for them and shed his blood to pay for their sins. If that child is old enough to realize that he cannot take his sin to heaven, and that he is lost and a sinner, than that child is old enough to be saved. What age is that? I do not know. It varies from child to child. In fact, we adults must become like 'little children' and have child-like faith when we come to Him! YAHUSHA did say in
Matthew 19:14, "But YAHUSHA said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven." This verse is not teaching, however, that little infants, just born, are come to Christ by being baptized by a priest! As stated earlier, little children who die in infancy are covered by the Blood of YAHUSHA HA’MASHIACH and will go to heaven. They are thus 'covered' until they reach the age that they can understand the Gospel, and at that point they must trust YAHUSHA on their own, of their own volition.
HISTORY OF INFANT BAPTISM Infant baptism appeared in the Christian church history around the Second Century, coming from the pagan influences of Baal Worship, as we will show later, but It came about as a result of the doctrine of baptismal regeneration - the teaching that baptism is essential to salvation; or, if you want to turn it around, that water baptism saves the soul (or at least is a part of a person's salvation). Consequently, as the teaching of baptismal regeneration started being propagated, it was natural for those holding to this doctrine to believe that everyone, should be baptized as soon as
