Something in Common…

I was reading a website about the beliefs of Baptists this morning. It turns out that I do have one thing in common with them–the belief in adult baptism. Baptism (actually ‘baptism by water’, or ‘psychic initiation’ in Gnosticism) is not meant to be the sprinkling of magic water on babies so that they go to Heaven. It is a rite of passage for someone who has made a serious commitment to live a spiritual life.
Of course, the rest of what is on the above site confirms that Baptists are not Christians, but heretics (specifically, no mention of the Nicene Creed, or other conventions established to identify Christianity).
