Babies, believers, and baptists (oh my). In this episode of Religious War, we dive into the phenomenon that is baptism. Why do we dip babies into water? Why do some churches wait until someone is older, and does it matter whether someone is baptised at all?
Katie explores her opinion on the famous “unbaptised babies go to purgatory” belief, Alex shares her experience going to many-a-Italian christenings, and we get a glimpse into why Alex’s brother’s baptism may have messed him up entirely.
Some additional notes and references from this episode:
John 1: 25-28: Alexandra points to an example of John the Baptist baptising.
John 3: Jesus telling Nicodemus “you must be born again”

What are your thoughts about baptism? If you were baptised, what does your baptism signify to you? Would you do it differently if you could?
