Some people might say that baptising babies is pointless because the baby obviously does not know what is going on and so does not have any beliefs to be baptised They think that instead of baptising babies they should wait until the person is old enough to decide for himself when they have true beliefs They might think that it is unfair that the child doesnt have a choice in the matter as they might disagree with their parents views later on in life and resent being baptised They might also believe that if someone is baptised when they are a baby they feel pressurised to be confirmed when they are a older and go ahead with it even if they do not really want to I disagree with these views because I think it is right to baptise babies because then they are being properly welcomed into Gods family and become a child of God which means more than the welcoming ceremony that the Baptists have If they were not baptised when they are older they would not feel as welcome to join Gods family and may be intimidated from experience I feel it is better to grow up in Gods family Children are already partaking in the keeping of Gods commandments such as keeping the Sabbath and they are raised to love and believe in God so why shouldnt they also be able to be sealed with his name in baptism There is nothing in the scriptures which says that we shouldnt baptise babies and surely it is better to be wrong in baptizing them instead of being wrong in not baptizing them considering that their eternal life is at stake It cannot be pointless to baptise babies as they are cleansed of sin as well as adults in baptism as they are cleansed of Original Sin which is the temptation to sin so they start their life ready to go to heaven
