He taught that no one who had been baptized as an infant was really baptized at all. His adherents, therefore, had to be baptized again.


I believe Jesus himself was close to thirty years old before he was baptized, what does that tell you?

you believe in mysticism? then maybe it is alright if i also use it.

It tells me that a man is not mature enough to preach Gods word until he reaches at least thirty, the apostle John was probably an exception because Jesus could see his faith.

But of course if those other Churches baptize at thirty and we baptize at twenty then maybe our Church will grow faster than theirs, but why not go all the way and baptize infants.

But he was circumcised at 8 days.
