I was 16 when I had my daughter. She was baptized at about 6 months old from a family member pressuring me into it. I had her baptized non-denominational... same as I was and by the same lady and this way she can choose for herself what religion she would like to follow if any. I do not go to church, but I did go to a private Catholic school from 2nd through 5th grade and had to become catholic or what not. I only went to the private school because I was kicked out of public schools, but that is a different story.
I am now 21, engaged to my son's father. My son is now 4 months old and my aunt... the same family member keeps asking us when we are going to have him baptized. She is Lutheran goes to church pretty often, not faithfully (not every single Sunday). I'm sorry, but it is getting really old. I have even told her that I don't feel the need for him to become baptized yet and we are not rushing it because in my eyes he has not committed any "sins" yet, but she insists that birth was a sin.
I'm not big on religion, we do not go to church... I don't know what to do and what to tell her and still keep the peace in the family. There has already been a big up roar on who would be in the delivery room, we told her no, but still insisted on being in the delivery room, which I'm still very upset about. Anyways.
Just wondering when every had their children/babies baptized and why at that age.
Am I wrong for not having him baptized yet? Am I wrong on my beliefs? I know I will get a wide variety or opinions on this. Everyone one please be respectful of each other and myself.
Thank you all for responding.
