Protestants are always saying the bible doesn't mention 'Infant Baptism' and its their main reason not to do it.

I tell them that Infant baptism makes you a member of God's kingdom. The sooner you do it the better.


Mark 10
“Let the children come to me! Don't try to stop them. People who are like these little children belong to the kingdom of God.+ 15 I promise you that you cannot get into God's kingdom, unless you accept it the way a child does.” 16Then Jesus took the children in his arms and blessed them by placing his hands on them.

Also, scripture mentions that "entire households were baptized." Surely some of those were infants.

Yeah I have known about that one, but this one implies you will not make it to heaven unless you believe in this Mark 10:15. I do wonder if he's secretly talking about Baptism.

Children have innocence and trust....I think it means that we need to have that also.

But who would hinder them? So you see he could be talking about hindering them to infant Baptism like the Protestants do.

I would remind you that not all Protestants say this. Some denominations do baptize infants.

Yes, many Protestants have infant Baptism. I have two relatives of different denominations and they have infants baptized.

Its not whether they do or not. Its the belief they shouldn't b/c that's an ominous warning?
