How should baptism be done?
I believe in full immersion and no infant baptism, provide scripture to back up your answers or else I don’t care. In Matthew 3:6, where did John the Baptist baptize? in the river, did he sprinkler water on people? No. Mark 1:10 Jesus was baptized how? full immersion “And straightway coming up out of the water…..” Now get this the word baptize comes from the greek word baptizo which means to immerse, submerge; to make whelmed (i.e. fully wet); used only (in the New Testament) of ceremonial ablution, especially (technically) of the ordinance of Christian baptism:–Baptist, baptize, wash.
Pope Stephen II declared the practice of “pouring” for baptism was valid in the case of sick candidates in the year 754 A.D. The Roman Catholic Council of Ravenna, 1311 A.D., gave the first “official” sanction of sprinkling. Prior to these times, immersion was the usual mode. In some Roman Catholics circles, immersion was still practiced in the 18th century.
