my best friend recently had a tramatic experience and realized she needed God. Wonderful right?? well she was invited to a Christian church, more protestant then non denominational, but i really dont know the differences. We are best friends and talk about everything so i know this was a spur of the moment thing because she told me about it after she had gone. She went there on Sunday and they Baptized her, dunking her in the water all the way. and she said the little prayer and asked Jesus into her heart.
I tried to be supportive since she grew up jewish and the fact that she has acepted Jesus Christ is wonderful.
Yet do we consider her baptism valid in the eyes of a Catholic Church if it wasnt done by a preist???
If they dont believe in original sin then does the baptism wipe it away??
I just think its so irresponsible for this church to baptise someone who they have never seen. They encouraged her to come back for bible study and church on sundays. She is really excited but right now she doesnt know what she believes and doesnt know what it is to be a Christian. I want to help her even if i dont agree with the church she has chosen.
