I've been a baptist for about 4 years now but I've been recently stuck on trying to understand the scriptures that seem to say that baptism saves vs. what we believe.. that baptism is just an outward act of obedience. Im actually having quite a struggle right now, as a good friend of mine recently converted to Lutheranism and just keeps pounding me with these scriptures. Mainly that my children need to be baptized or I am not obeying God. I've become quite terrified that I have been wrong, and that my children need to be baptized. I dont see infant baptism anywhere in scripture, and yet the things this friend is saying to me does make some sense. Especially the scriptures she is sending me that seem to state quite clearly that baptism plays a role in salvation. Im having quite the crisis of faith at the moment. I need prayer, and I need help to understand what we believe about baptism and why. I've emailed my Pastor, and he hasnt gotten back to me as of yet.
