    Some Christian churches practice child baptism frequently. Do you believe this practice is right? Give reasons why/why not and let the debate begin!

    It should be the informed choice of an adult -- just my opinion; I don't say that child-baptism is necessarily wrong.

    No. Christians (even children) can only be validly baptised the once.

    And I thought "frequently" meant "a general practice", not a "repetative act on an individual". I sure misconstrued that one. My answer would be the same as LH's.

    No, I think LH got it wrong. I've never heard of a church performing repeated baptisms on a single child.

    Wordnet:

    frequently = many times at short intervals

    Baptism falls short of the drowning that some people require

    Children deserve drowning?

    Make up your mind. Drowning or hanging for the little children?

    To give them a way of getting into heaven.
