I recently had a friend of mine that has a 5 year daughter that is getting baptised. I would like to know your opinions on this. I know that the Holy Spirit must call and convict a person, I guess What I am asking is this unusual for a child of this age to be called to salvation. In my church there have been many testimonies of supposive early life experiences that was later doubted and a true salvation experienced later confessed to, mine being one. Could this be one of the reasons that 85% of evangelical young people leave the Church after leaving the home. I would never advocate discouraging these children in any manner. Samuel is an example in the Old Testament of just such a case.
