Starting over

If I were to start my life in Christ over again, I would probably wait until I was a little older before getting baptized. It was just before my 9th birthday. I knew what was I was doing. I could answer all the questions (so I am told). Nevertheless, today I can barely remember any details about the event! That might just be my poor memory (in some regards). This is a subject I’ll struggle with more soon, I’m sure, with my own sons (the oldest is about to turn 8). I hope he’ll wait until he’s at least 10, but we shall see. I think this can be a tough issue for those who “grow up in the church” and have parents who really teach them from the Scriptures as they should.
