It is commonplace to speculate about the spiritual status of Children in the Church either from traditional or rational point of view. These widespread child-despising views are not necessarily biblical or authentic because even though we are answerable to God about our Children, these CHILDREN ARE NOT ANSWERABLE TO US BUT TO GOD.
Most Churches agree on the spiritual journey for adults and “ordinance” baptism of adult converts, but differ in the approach to children.
• - Some baptize (initiate-dedicate) their children WITH WATER in infancy and ‘confirm’ them without water in adolescence.
• - Others ‘dedicate’ their children WITHOUT WATER in infancy and baptize (initiate) them with water in adolescence.
• - Still some do nothing but leave their children to find their own way, while
• - Others baptise even non-covenant (pagan) children indiscriminately.
