    I hate to shatter your belief, but I do not want to be baptized. I don't believe it will bring me closer to God. I believe it's just me being dipped in water and I see nothing to be gained spiritually from it.

    @ dru chases the wind.
    She did say in her eyes.
    I don't believe I have to be baptised to be saved. I'm already saved by accepting Jesus as my Saviour and repenting of my sin. But I do want to be baptised one day to publically declare my commitment to God.

    When I was about 8 or 9 I was baptized. I was offered at my church and I wanted to do it because at this church, the baptisms took place in this tiny kind of clear tub of water that was above the stage where the preacher spoke, and I really just wanted to go in there to see what it was like because it seemed interesting and I loved swimming/getting in any kind of water. Also I have always been fascinated and intrigued by ritualistic kind of thing like that and we got to wear these white gowns (which was another huge part of the appeal - you got to go in the water with clothes on which I'd always wanted to do) and everything. I just wanted to see if I felt any different afterward. I didn't.

    I was a weird kid.
