born again

  • Baptism

    Since the 2nd century, water baptism (Greek: immersion) has been used as a ritual to cleanse past sins and establish a relationship with God. Is that the intention of the original baptisms given by Christ's Apostles? What was the difference between the baptism given by John the Baptist and the one given in the name of Christ? Why does it imply a 'born again' notion? Is this symbolic action even necessary? Can infants be baptized in Christ? What happens when a person takes baptism?

  • Krštenje

    Od 2 stoljeća, krštenje u vodi (Grčki: uranjanje) bilo je korišteno kao obred očišćenja prošlih grijeha i uspostavljanja odnosa s Bogom. Je li to bila namjera izvornih krštavanja koja su provodili Kristovi Apostoli? Što je bila razlika između krštenja koje je provodio Ivan Krstitelj i onoga koje se vršilo u Kristovo ime? Zašto ono podrazumijeva ideju o ponovnom začeću? Je li taj simbolični postupak i dalje potreban? Mogu li djeca biti krštena u Krista? Što se događa kad se osoba podvrgne krštenju?
