In the thread on How Many Baptisms, Allan noted that he had been immersed at age five, but truly baptized after God saved him at age 17. The question for discussion is, should churches baptize children that age? Or even at seven or eight? I recognize that some children who have been reared in families where the Bible is studies may have more knowledge of spiritual things than others, so there may be no pat answer. But are there some general guidelines that you would offer in this area? How young is too young?
