She is isn’t she? There will be more to see in a week so.
Thanks for checking in!!
Indeed a beautiful child. One important point — if she was really being “baptized,” that would be child abuse. I presume she was being sprinkled or splashed in a non-biblical ceremony. (Baptizing means submerging!)
Indeed she was sprinkled with water, not submerged. But to baptize could mean either of those as I understand it.
Yes, “sprinkle” is one of the common understandings today, And I understand why and how “baptize” is used in that sense. However, the New Testament knows nothing of this definition. Baptism is for believers; the ceremony you and your daughter went through is extra-biblical and was much more significant in your heart that it was spiritually for her, I would suggest.
Not my daughter, and not my baptism. I was just the photographer, but most likely you’re right.
