Casey Anthony getting baptized, wants to see Caylee in heaven
Examiner ^ | 03/22/2012 | Bruce Baker

Posted on 03/22/2012 10:43:19 AM PDT by Responsibility2nd

In the latest news on Casey Anthony, the "Tot Mom" is getting baptized to ensure her salvation and to see her daughter Caylee in heaven one day. In a twist of irony, the 26-year-old reportedly alerted the media of her intentions. Recall she is serving time in an undisclosed location in Florida on check fraud after being exonerated of murdering her daughter?

Love or hate her, Anthony is back in the news. After her high-profile murder trial in the death of Caylee resulted in a not-guilty verdict, she was ordered to serve probation for one-year in the Sunshine State on unrelated charges. For protection, her defense team thought it was necessary that she kept a low-profile.

While a few Casey Anthony sightings surfaced on the Internet, she has largely been absent from the public's eye, except for a few "leaked videos online." The 26-year-old (in this photo), who was seen with a new hairdo, a new puppy, and nose bling, claims she did not authorize the release of her private "video diary."

Now, sources close to the infamous mom say she is turning a "new leaf" in her life by embracing religion.

"Casey has planned to get baptized sometime this month. Casey believes that Caylee is with God now and wants to ensure her own salvation so that she'll see her daughter again someday." ~ Inside source for RadarOnline

Heard this on AM radio this morning. The guy was LIVID that Anthony was doing this. As if she didn't deserve to find salvation.

getting baptized to ensure her salvation

Either that's poorly written, or she doesn't understand the path to salvation.

A few comments at this link.

http://blogs.orlandosentinel.com/entertainment_tv_tvblog/2012/03/casey-anthony-do-you-alert-the-media-for-a-baptism.html

so after she kills her baby, she is looking forward to see her again in Heaven??? Casey only deserves to fry in Hell!!

Does she think this will wash away the fact that she got away with murdering her daughter , this sick sick sorry excuse for a mother can get Baptised all she wants but she is still going to burn in hell .

i hope the bitch drowns now thats something we would all like to see

People who comment that God will forgive a baby killer if they repent doesn’t know that for a fact. No one knows what he will do. Myself, I hope he throws her straight to hell.

Its not for us to judge …if casey is sincere or not. Only God should judge her motives.

Maybe we will get lucky and she will drown

I suspect she might see Caylee there, just before St. Peter hands her a millstone lei and points her to the express elevator marked “Bottomless Pit”

God alone can read hearts with certainty, and it is never to late for repentance. Radio guy, like the child, like the mother, like all of us, needs some prayer.

More than likely, it's the reporter that doesn't understand the path to salvation. I once tried to explain the concept of Grace to a reporter, when I used to be a reporter. It was a task that made he realize that picking up a hammer and hitting myself repeatedly in the forehead, would have been easier. A lot easier task.

Wasn’t necessary. He lived and died under the Law.

Baptism (Spiritual death, burial and resurrection) became necessary after the physical death, burial and resurrection of our Lord. At Pentecost.

Baptism doesn’t determine whether or not you are saved. It’s an outward expression of your commitment, but it doesn’t save you.

***************************

That says it all...it isn’t what is in her heart, something between her and God— it is all her head and her desire to be accepted by the public. She hasn’t changed, she is still trying to connive and manipulate.

When I first heard of this, I was annoyed because I thought this might just be a stunt... But at the end of the day, God can’t be fooled. If this is a step for her to come to Jesus and ask for forgiveness, who am I to judge.... And if it isn’t, God will deal with it.

1 Peter 3:21 makes my point: and this water symbolizes baptism that now saves you also...

The water baptism is symbolic of the baptism by the Holy Spirit.

We'll have to agree to disagree on this one.

I think you will find more of us disagreeing with you than agreeing with you. If as you say, “ANY path to salvation MUST include baptism” Then my Dad who gave his heart to the Lord and said the sinners prayer days before passing away in Hospice, never made it. He burns. Soldiers and accident victims in their last moments of life with a priest or minister leaning over them asking if their heart is right with God, are wasting their last breaths responding if they were never baptized.

I would think differently if the media found out Casey had been baptized and reported on it.

No, Casey Anthony notified the media that she intends to be baptized.

Casey is doing what Casey does.

She reported it to the media which means she was looking for public opinion.

I thank you for your prayers.

Sadly, you’re likely correct that she is shopping for publicity. However, I do not know her heart. Perhaps her intent is pure.

I’m referring to the comments damning her & wishing her harm.

You are right. Prideful men want a little credit, but when we claim to add anything to salvation, even baptism, we diminish Christ’s atoning work on the cross. Scripture teaches that salvation from beginning to end is of the Lord. He is the author and finisher of our faith.

"No, Casey Anthony notified the media that she intends to be baptized."

Be careful. The Examiner is a very weak source. This may or may not be true but I'm not going to consider it a fact based on The Examiner. I will only say anyone can obtain savation by repenting and accepting in their heart Jesus as their personal Savior - even Ms. Anthony.

Only in the Catholic church, because baptism is one of their works based sacraments.

You are correct. Getting baptized will do one thing, get her wet. It is only supposed to be an outward sign of an inward conversion.

So? Nobody here is denying there is a sacrament of Baptism. They are denying it is a prerequisite for salvation and you can't provide any convincing proof texts for that.

"Myself, I hope he throws her straight to hell. Its not for us to judge …if casey is sincere or not. Only God should judge her motives.

Go read Jonah chapter's 3 and 4.

Jonah didn't want to go to Ninevah, because he didn't want Ninevah to repent. And Jonah was angry when Ninevah did. THIS is what it means to judge. It's not simply determining whether a person is sincere or not. We actually need to do that on a limited basis, since we are instructed to "rebuke our neighbor frankly", "discern the spirits" and disassociate from people who are living a wicked lifestyle.

The prohibition on judging is on judging them as not worthy of obtaining God's mercy, like Jonah did towards the very very evil city of Ninevah, whom God still loved despite their sin.

Your joking right?

Romans 10:9-11 (King James Version)

9That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

10For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

11For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

An example of one from the mouth of Billy Graham

Heavenly Father:

I come to you in prayer asking for the forgiveness of my Sins. I confess with my mouth and believe with my heart that Jesus is your Son, And that he died on the Cross at Calvary that I might be forgiven and have Eternal Life in the Kingdom of Heaven. Father, I believe that Jesus rose from the dead and I ask you right now to come in to my life and be my personal Lord and Savior. I repent of my Sins and will Worship you all the day’s of my Life!. Because your word is truth, I confess with my mouth that I am Born Again and Cleansed by the Blood of Jesus!

In Jesus Name, Amen.

Once she is baptized she will have to live a life that will embrace the Christian life style. I don’t think a leopard can change its spots but its worth the try.
