“Jesus loves the little children of the world...Red or Yellow, Black or White...They are precious in his sight...”

So what that tells me he sees all, watches all, and wants them, at their time of choosing, and understanding, to accept him as their savior...

The ritual of baptism is simply accepting that fact, there is no set time for that to happen...

The age of reason is simply a point in one’s life that you are exposed to the word of God, have a good understanding of what he wishes for you in that life...It is a never ending learning experience, no one knows it all...Some kids get it earlier in life, some, it takes a while...It depends on the upbringing and level of exposure to the word of God...

I believe kids souls are protected to a certain point, and a decision has to be made, or not...No one can realistically (biblically) make that decision for them...Sometimes I get the feeling that infant baptisms are there to make the rest of us adults feel better in some cases...

That’s just the way I see it...

That’s fine, except what you quoted isn’t scripture.

“Jesus loves the little children of the world...Red or Yellow, Black or White...They are precious in his sight”.

What *is* scriptural is that Jesus says, “let the little children come to me and do not hinder them”.
