    Something for Baptists and evangelicals to think about: the Baptist doctrine of the “Age of Accountability” is nowhere to be found in the New Testament.
    Isn’t it strange that God provided a means for the babies and toddlers of his chosen people in the Old Testament to be part of his Covenant promises but is completely silent about the issue in the New Testament?
    Jesus seemed to really love the little children… but he never mentions even once, if the Baptist/evangelical view of salvation is correct, how a Christian parent can be assured that if something dreadful happens to their baby or toddler, that they will see that child again in heaven.
    In the Baptist/evangelical doctrine of adult-only salvation, God leaves our babies and toddlers in spiritual limbo! A Christian parent must pray to God and beg him that little Johnnie “accepts Christ” the very minute he reaches the Age of Accountability, because if something terrible were to happen to him, he would be lost and doomed to eternal hellfire.
    Do you really believe that our loving Lord and Savior would do that to Christian parents??
    Dear Christian parents: bring your little children to Jesus! He wants to save them just as much as he wants to save adults! Bring your babies and toddlers to the waters of Holy Baptism and let Jesus SAVE them!
    The unscriptural “Age of Accountability” is the desperate attempt to plug the “big hole” in the Baptist doctrine of adult-only Salvation/Justification:
    How does Jesus save our babies and toddlers?

    1. Here’s my take. I was raised Wisconsin Synod Lutheran, and saw how it worked firsthand.
      First, baptizing infants and toddlers violates that “BELIEVE and be baptized” Bible standard. An infant can’t believe….
      In confirmation class, we were taught that we were saved, because a pastor sprinkled water over our foreheads when we were 2 weeks old. So then we didn’t need to be born-again, because we already were — though we weren’t.
      The basis of Lutheranism is ritual, instead of an actual relationship in which Jesus is our Lord whom we actually follow daily. We basically just read about what we had already done — though we never really did anything.
      So I believe baptizing infants is a dangerous practice that not only doesn’t have Biblical support, it has deceived billions, thinking they’re going to heaven when they never were even born-again, which is the start of our relationship with Christ, which we must then walk out to stay right with Him.
      That’s the main reason I shy away from infant baptism, but it’s also not Biblical because they’re sprinkled instead of submerged, which symbolizes the being in the womb and coming out renewed. Sprinkling doesn’t make sense: Jesus walking into the Jordan River and then just standing there as John sprinkles water over his head. The same is true with Philip and the Ethiopian Eunoch.
      One more reason:
      I do believe we are to be baptized after we do accept Jesus’ blood covenant and commit our lives to follow Christ: “believe and be baptized.” But the Lutheran church doesn’t do this because they believe the infant baptism was valid even though the person baptized couldn’t believe.
      So I got baptized (submersion) after I committed my life to Christ, having read the Bible on my own…; even though, I was sprinkled as an infant, which I don’t believe meant anything. I believe that all who have been infant baptized should consider it invalid, and should get legitimately baptized after believing.
      So infant baptism not only gives people false hope that they’re already Christians, but then they don’t then get legitimately baptized, either.
      I do believe dedication is a good thing http://www.ag.org/top/Beliefs/gendoct_11_accountability.cfm , but the main thing is that we hear and obey, actually follow Christ our whole lives — not counting on a ritual to save us. Luther’s salvation doctrine was totally wrong, which I show here:

       Who-Goes-To-Heaven Scriptures — Narrow is the Way | Who are the Children of God?

      Luther didn’t teach what the Bible teaches, and it’s a bad idea to call oneself a Lutheran, a follower of Luther.
      I’ve asked Lutherans: “are you a Christian?”
      The typical response is: “I’m Lutheran.”
      They call themselves Lutherans instead of Christians. Very strange.
      And Luther almost certainly didn’t go to heaven himself:

      The Protestant Reformers Were Frauds: By their Fruits You Will Know Them — Martin Luther was a false teacher, a racist, a persecutor and a murderer! John Calvin was a false teacher, a deranged tyrant, a persecutor and a murderer!

      Martin Luther: Sin Boldly — “No sin can separate us from Him, even if we were to kill or commit adultery thousands of times each day”

      Luther: Let us BANISH the epistle of James, for it is ‘WORTHLESS’ — written by a non-Christian and can’t be reconciled with Paul

      What the Lord’s Prayer really says about FORGIVING. Jesus made it clear right after “Amen”: “IF YOU DON’T forgive…” vs. Luther’s Catechism: “God forgives WITHOUT CONDITION,” even “REVENGE!!!”

      Martin Luther Cursed from His Heart Catholic Leaders, ‘Every Day’

      Hating, unforgiving, James-3 cursing, Biblically disqualified MARTIN LUTHER: “When I die, I want to be a ghost…So I can continue to pester the bishops, priests and godless monks until that they have more trouble with a dead Luther than they could have had before with a thousand living ones.”

      Martin Luther’s Subordinate Bible Books: Hebrews, James, Jude & Revelation

      Who-Goes-To-Heaven Scriptures — Narrow is the Way | Who are the Children of God? (Where Paul is reconciled with James — and with Hebrews and 1 John — and with Jesus. It all works!)
