Does this answer satisfy you? Or, do you think there is still a reason why clapping cannot occur after baptism? My opinion is that I would rather not have clapping after a baptism. I think an Amen and joyful praise in song is much more spiritual and solemn than raucous clapping.
It is my opinion that cheering and hooting is beneath the dignity of the moment. Someone says that since Baptism is a passive act, the Lord is doing the cleansing, not the person that is being clapped for. God deserves all the glory, not man.
What is your view of clapping after a baptism?
