I was thinking about this last night, if we are not suppose to baptize children and babies, then what is the age of consent to baptism?
Also, what gives you this idea?
Here is a link to Baptism for Infants or Adults
It is between Two Protestants
1 "Reformed Baptist, anti-caholic James White vs "Orthodox" Presbyterian Bill Shishko
Age Of reason for Baptism is a Tradition of some Protestant Christian communities, derived from Jewish Tradition
** Bar Mitzvah**
So what does it mean to become a bar mitzvah?** Under Jewish Law, children are not obligated to observe the commandments, although they are encouraged to do so as much as possible to learn the obligations they will have as adults. At the age of 13 (12 for girls), children become obligated to observe the commandments. The bar mitzvah ceremony formally, publicly marks the assumption of that obligation, along with the corresponding right to take part in leading religious services**, to count in a minyan (the minimum number of people needed to perform certain parts of religious services), to form binding contracts, to testify before religious courts and to marry.
A Jewish boy automatically becomes a bar mitzvah upon reaching the age of 13 years, and a girl upon reaching the age of 12 years. No ceremony is needed to confer these rights and obligations. The popular bar mitzvah ceremony is not required, and does not fulfill any commandment.
