- Baptism of Children
- Confirmation of children
Are they really old enough to commit for life to our belief system that they probably, don’t understand?
How many different worldviews have they been exposed to this early in life?
Won’t they be shamed if they abandon this belief system later in life?
Aren’t we forcing them into something before they can realistically decide for themselves?
How many options do give them?
This seems mildly abusive and manipulative to me. They are publicly accepting something that they didn’t really have a choice in deciding. It was essentially their only option.
Would we publicly announce if they choose a different belief system?
Would we celebrate their choices if they contradicted our belief system?
It seems like a manipulative practice to me. It seems to model a manipulative God that only celebrates us when we agree with him, at least in the way we comprehend him.
So, do we only celebrate followers that agree with our interpretation of the divine.
Doesn’t sound like a good thing to me!
