    In our church we baptistis kids, Who know the diffrence from right from wrong. And some ppl oppose to this. I dont because when a child readches a certain age then they know what riht from wrong is. When a kid or adult gets saved they are angels rejoicing in heaven. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    4-christ,

    I'm not certain what you're asking, but here goes...

    Only those that confess Christ as Lord and Saviour should be baptized. I'm not sure why anyone would be opposed to this, unless some folks in your church are concerned that some of the kids may be too young to understand what they are doing. That does happen sometimes.

    When you a start a topic, watch your spelling and review what you have written to make sure it makes sense to the reader. If you do this, you will get more responses from BB members.

    Blessing in Christ,
    Jeff

    We have been through this topic quite a bit in the last year.

    For the record, I was seven when I got saved, and I knew EXACTLY what I was doing. I was baptised the following Easter, even though I couldn't swim and hated having my face under water. But the spiritual part meant more to me then, so I did it anyway. Would all kids be so resolute? Maybe not. Depends on the kid.

    Our youngest son's experience is very much like yours. He experienced conviction and someone said he was too young. He continued for about a year, then experienced another conviction, his profession is that his first conviction and repentance was sufficient, but that the statement that he was too young made him think no one would believe him, so he did not say anything.

    I was saved last year and was baptized in June. There were two adults and two children. I think the younger child was seven or eight. I believe they understood completely.

    Debby, I can't swim and was afraid of being dunked. My pastor burst out laughing when asked (half-jokingly) if he could just pour water on me. [​IMG]

    My daughter was 5...she's now almost 9 and shows no signs of not understanding what she did. She bears MUCH fruit (she puts me to shame :eek: ). She truly has a heart for God because she cares for people. It means so much for her to help others out...she's a true gem and the type of Christian that anyone could look up to.

    Now my 4 year is a whole nother (is that even word? hehe) story!!! haha

    Yep, it is in Kentucky, I'll prove it drectly from the Official Kentucky Hillbilly Lexicon of the English Language, p. 389 (5th Ed.)

    nother--(n)---something different, but could be same, like in "get me nother one of them wrenches" in composition always means something different but the same or speaking of the same difference. [old middle english; predominantly spoken in the lowlands of east central kentucky, as you come out of eastern Kentucky and are moving into the central pennyrile region, but not of either region dialectically, although it is nother region of its own, it is the same difference].

    Bro. Dallas

    BTW, my parents were raised in nother part of kentucky than what I was, they say 'drectly' 'nother' 'same difference' some of it has rubbed off on me and is evidently permeated throughout the state, but is often less noticeable in writing, in writing we do not use such dialectic forms and are satisfied to completely butcher the Queen's English by print, if you know what I mean [​IMG] [​IMG] here we don't say ruf, but roooof, we don't say light, but liiiiiight, and so on and so forth, keep practicing and drectly you'ens'll be talking jus like me and it will all be the same difference [​IMG]

    </font>[/QUOTE]If you think Kentucky is bad, you need to see our "Okie dictionary".

    It says your not a "born n bred" okie unless you have an old, beat-up washing machine on your front porch and at least one car on blocks (doesn't need an engine).

    Seriously, this is no joke. I was director of engineering for a military contractor. We built a system for Lear Jets to be used by the DEA for drug interdiction. We did it as a subcontract for a company in New Jersey. When the two executives arrived at our facility, they were quite shocked. They had to drive from the air-port in Tulsa about 90 miles to a small town where we had a 200,000 square-foot, high-tech, military electronics manufacturing facility. Overhead was extremely low there, so other companies would always subcontract to us.

    The funny part of the story is that these guys actually (this is NO joke) contacted Washington to see if they needed some kind of pass-ports or travel papers to get into indian territory. When they got here, they couldn't believe that we were just like they were, but the country is a lot prettier here in South-Eastern Oklahoma near the mountains. They kept telling this story over and over -- they couldn't get over it. :D

    Yeah, we used to live in Poteau in 1972-74. Dad refused to set the washer in the yard and our car had a real motor, so we weren't granted citizenship :D

    Just kidding brother...but not about living in Poteau; Dad contracted construction of overhead and buried telephone and power and other utilities.

    We worshipped in some churches that I thought were speaking in tongues, but it was only thier native Cherokee language :(

    That's when I realized the gift of tongues had ceased [​IMG]

    Hey, God Bless ya

    What does this mean, huh :confused: Low cloud cover, low bridge, low roof, low boy, I was completely lost after reading this... :D somehow, it just don't fit with the "original" post you made ;)

    so other companies would always subcontract to us

    And just who were these 'other' companies sir?? :eek:

    I think it is time to form an independent investigative committee of devout da'vinci code knights of the templar supporters.

    I mean anytime anyone says this 2x in the same paragraph, something fishy is going on here

    Ya'll be nice, Bro. Frogman.
    The age of accountability in rural Oklahoma is 39 [​IMG]

    1-38 - too young to be accountable
    40 plus - to old to be accountable

    So the age of accountability is 39 [​IMG]

    My first job counciling for invitations
    was in 1968 when i was 25-years-old.
    I was trained and counciled for a
    Billy Graham film. I've been a councilor
    in my current church for 24-25 years.

    I've counciled 4-year-olds that I thought
    were ready, and this proved out over the
    years. I've seen 12-year-olds that
    didn't have the least idea. It is necessary
    to have a conversation with them. It is
    rare one can have a conversation with
    a 4-6 year old anyway.

    I was saved when i was 8-years-old in
    April 1952. Oops, that is now 52 years
    ago. Interesting, when one gets saved,
    they stay saved, tis Jesus doing the saving
    and no we ourselves.

    Why would you baptize kids at the age of accountability??? Being saved is not an automatic foregone occurrance, and being baptized is not a right of passage.

    Baptism is the outward expression of an inward work. Without the inward work, it is a meaningless act that only gets you wet - like being dunked in the baptistry.
