I’ve been sprinkled…or, I was baptized as an infant. Does that count?
Christ gave a clear example of what Biblical baptism looked like. He went down into the water and was immersed under the water. We must also understand that we are identifying as believers of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ was placed on cross, was buried in the tomb, which was in the earth, and then rose again. Water Immersion Baptism is an exact picture of this- We stand up in the water (Christ on the cross), then we are placed under the water (Christ in the tomb), then we are brought up from under the water (Christ rose from the dead).
Regarding infant baptism. Baptism is an outward physical symbol for a conscious inward decision of the heart. We are showing the world that we identify with Christ and that we have made the heart decision to believe on Him as our only way of salvation. My question is this, “How can an infant make that decision?”
Biblically, this outward identification of getting baptized was always AFTER someone decided to believe ON Jesus Christ as their only way of forgiveness for their sin.
