The second ordinance we have in common is Baptism. Catholics baptise infants by sprinkling, and they are added to the family of God by the splash of water. The infant has no idea what sin is, who Jesus is, the Gospel, or the faintest idea he or she falls short of the glory of God. Baptists model their baptism based on Scripture. Matthew 28:20 gives a clear picture of when to baptise. It is after salvation as a public profession of faith. The mode of baptism is immersion, based on how Jesus Christ was Baptised. Being immersed symbolized the death, burial and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Catholics are not alone in this. Most mainline Protestant denominations also follow this error. In addition, some off the wall denominations like the Church of Christ immerse, but believe immersion is required for salvation, apart from what the Bible says. So, especially to those who hold to infant baptism, what purpose does it serve? The infant knows as much about Scripture as my pet cat. If one does baptise an infant, does the infant receive salvation the moment the rain drops hit their face? If not, when do they obtain salvation in the Catholic Church? When they finish communicants class? If you do baptise infants, how do you square that with Matthew 28:20 to be baptised after salvation? To those who believe baptism is required for salvation, and without splitting hairs with verses in 2 Peter, how do you explain the thief on the cross? I will say one thing for sprinkling, it saves on the church water bill.
