One thing I am having difficulty resolving in my various Christian beliefs is the whole subject of baptism. What is truly correct according to the Bible ? Should an infant be immediately baptized ? Or is one supposed to wait until they reach a so-called "age of accountability" (seven years or older) before they are baptized ? Or should one hold off until they are an adult and wish to give a public confession of faith in Jesus as savior, casting off their old life of sin and regenerated into a new birth ?
What is truly, Biblically correct ? If one should wait until they are older, can or should a so-called child dedication possibly be made to the church during the interim period of time ?
If this subject has been covered in a previous thread, please forgive me. There just seems to be so many different denominational positions on when a person should be baptized, according to God's wishes.
