If I decide to have a child one day, is baptism mandatory?
I want to give my child (if I have one) freedom to believe in whatever religion they choose rather than assigning one to them so early on. As of now, I don't want kids but I still think ahead sometimes. I often get confused.
Of course not. Neither my husband or I are religious and there would be no reason to have gotten our daughter baptized. If it's something she wants to do later in life then she can choose to do it for herself.
Very few things are mandatory especially when it comes to religion.
The vast majority of us however weren't allowed the freedom to choose whether or not we wanted to attend church as children.
It would be interesting to see how many people would choose religion if it had not been thrust upon them by their family, friends, or co-workers. Self-discovery is a wonderful thing.
I don't believe any child should be baptise at birth, don't force it upon him/her, after he/she turn 18, he/she can get baptise, if he/she want
