    Infant baptism is the practice of baptising infants or young theological discussions, the practice is sometimes referred to as paedobaptism, or pedobaptism, from the Greek pais meaning "child". This can be contrasted with what is called "believer's baptism" (or credobaptism, from the Latin word credo meaning "I believe"), which is the religious practice of baptising only.

      Greetings in Christ! I was perusing through a protestant pamphlet that was covering basic Christian beliefs (biased, I’m afraid, on their behalf) and came across the subject of Baptism. It insisted on baptism by immersion, citing certain scripture to back up the statement. It did not condone infant baptism or sprinkling. The subject brought to mind many discussions that I’ve had with other. The concept of infant “baptism” is totally foreign to the Holy Scriptures. This practice stems from the erroneous teaching of “original sin.” The Bible does not give one single example or command of any baby being baptized anywhere.

Louis, Vol. XIV, April,p. The point here is not that this settles the issue of infant baptism.
