So I have some questions regarding baptism and I figured this was as good a place to start as any. I had been baptized as a Jr. High School age kid in a Free Methodist church. At the time, yes I was totally on board with God. In my early 20’s though I told God to go live with Satan and totally closed all doors and no longer gave God even a thought. Now that’s been changing. I did a “crash course” RICA through the local parish, and when I asked the Priest about the baptism if it needed redone or anything, he just dismissed it saying that it didn’t matter. Well the 5 week RICA left me deciding to not get confirmed this year.
What I am wondering is does that one baptism matter now or is that a case where due to my age and the things that followed, that I should now be baptized again or not. Just not sure. Part of me thinks it doesn’t matter what’s happened in the past even though I totally turned so south from God for so long. Now on the other hand, I am thinking that because of that situation and the age I was then that maybe I didn’t know what I was really doing at the time and so now as an adult would need to be baptized. When a baby is baptized they would have to later be baptized as an adult right? Or is that the same situation?
Thanks again for your help guys and gals. You have always given me good help so far that I have been coming and asking and reading.
