Why Infant baptism is invalid deception
Infant baptism is an invalid, deceptive practice that does not lead to salvation.
This is what Jesus Christ commanded in Matthew 28:19,20 Jesus commanded: "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. "
Jesus Christ commanded his disciples to first MAKE DISCIPLES, before they BAPTIZE them. A baby cannot be a disciple.
Jesus also commanded in Mark 16:15,16 "And He said to them “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. 16“He who has believed and has been baptized will be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned. "
A baby cannot BELIEVE and even if a person is baptized and he does not BELIEVE the gospel of Jesus Christ, His WORDS, as recorded in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, then that baptism is useless, it cannot save him. You must first believe in Jesus Christ and become a disciple, you must obey Him. First repent and then be baptized to be saved.
To baptize infants is a COMMANDMENT OF MEN and not a commandment of Jesus Christ, the Lord and Savior.
This is what Jesus said about the COMMANDMENTS OF MEN.
Matthew 15:7-9 “You hypocrites, rightly did Isaiah prophesy of you:
8‘THIS PEOPLE HONORS ME WITH THEIR LIPS,
BUT THEIR HEART IS FAR AWAY FROM ME.
9‘BUT IN VAIN DO THEY WORSHIP ME,
TEACHING AS DOCTRINES THE PRECEPTS OF MEN.’”
It is in vain and invalid to follow the commandments of men. we have to obey the gospel of Jesus Christ, obey His words, His commandments in order to have salvation.
Salvation is Jesus Christ. If we believe in Him and we obey Him He will give us eternal life, but if we disobey Him we will perish.
An infant cannot believe, neither can he become a disciple. An infant does not have sin.
Infant baptism is a COMMANDMENT OF MEN, it is a deception, it is a LIE.
May Jesus bless you.
