    It was not the norm but we know it did happen, whereas in Acts it talks about a whole family getting baptized. Even though we don't know how old the kids may have been, at that point in time in eretz Israel, when daddy converted the whole family converted. And this makes sense because any children would be brought up in the faith of the Church as it was.

    Seems to me that picking and choosing is precisely what you're doing. I mean, why are you disregarding passages like these?

    "In those days they shall say no more, The fathers have eaten a sour grape, and the children's teeth are set on edge. But every one shall die for his own iniquity." Jeremiah 31:29-30

    "The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him." Ezekiel 18:20

    I don't blame you; the Bible is full of contradictions, so it's impossible to get a coherent message from it without disregarding some of it. Still, it's not cool to point fingers at someone else for doing what you're doing, too.

    We all die, we all sin. However if jesus died for all mans sins...past, present and future, does sin really matter?

    The teaching that baptism saves is not in the Bible. The Bible teaches that baptism is a sign for faith for people old enough to understand the gospel. Lesson 35: Why We Do Not Baptize Infants (Genesis 17 and other Scriptures) | Bible.org

    I don't believe we are continuously reborn -but born once as humans and born once again as spirits.
    However, our spirit is in us as humans -but we are not born completely new again. We retain what we gain as humans, but are transferred to a powerful spirit body.

    (Marvel not that I said you must be born again...)
