Should we baptise children. Or more significantly, should we be bringing in children into Christianity at such an age when they cant make such a decision. Is it brainwashing, is it simply bringing them to the path of God? Debate and share your views
Actually , i'am against the fact that children should be brought into christian faith at such a young age. i think that first of all, religion is a hole philosophy and making a step into it means a lot of things. religions are not only just religions , they stand on historical statements that presents us today something very huge , very unique , with a special culture. i think that we should give sometime for them to choose and design their own path for the sake of the religions's reputation and all that .
I agree with you on that front, so why exactly do children get baptized at a young age? tradition or not. you are deciding that childs religious perspective at a young age. Baptism is a physical manifestation of ones faith and devotion. yet people treat it as a formality, not a sacred rite of passage, but like a tick in the terms and agreements box of being christian. i was baptized when i was a child. And through that, i felt cheated, if not stripped, of my right to choose my own religious beliefs. and while this might not be important for some. Remember this, you are stripping the basic human right of choice from a child. Let them decide when they reach their own conclusion
Religion is on the eve of its end . its simply a standard format and standard concepts that were applied to explain things that science explain now. certainly , some things remain unknown, yet we might not have en ought of knowledge to discover whats behind every secret surrounding us but religion was just used for good and bad purposes . i think that we should reasonably look from a very dark side and realize that religion and god are just too old to remain in our century. so i think that its not necessary to keep thinking about this because people are more and more forgetting religious basis and its soon going to end . and when religion will end , baptism will for sure end. so let's give it some time and look at the development of the technology that is erasing every trace of any religious statements.
Your points are off topic and illogical, you have presented no basis on for which the notion that religion is soon ending. i find that quite ignorant. Saying that religion, that societies following a specific faith, of a higher power, that it will end is quite misleading and ill informed. the Vatican is still a powerful driving force with vast amounts of money and influence. 2.2 billion or 32% of the worlds population is Christian. please, if youre gonna debate, at the very least be more critical with stronger arguments than "religion is dying". While science has uncovered that what most of the bible teaches, especially during genesis, is false. you are forgetting the fact that they did not have the technology that we have today to understand this. they had decided to interpret the world with logical reasoning, putting it as a story. Just because the world is a sphere, that we revolve around the sun and evolution debunks Adam and Eve changes nothing. the fundamental point in which religion, or Christianity in this case, revolves under is that is there a God?
