    Baptism is a common Christian practice; the definition for the word baptism is “a rite of washing with water as a sign of religious purification and consecration.”
    The normal tools used in the baptism ritual are. Usually white Candles depending on setting, a cross, an alter, and a baptismal font (the one I was baptized in was wooden with a cross on top) The priest/minister usually blesses the water, and then recites some words depending on the denomination they can vary. The person is usually then considered born again.
    The right of baptism STOLEN!
    The rite of baptism is of pagan origin.
    In ancient history, the Greek historain Plutarch tells us that the rites of
    Mithras were being practiced in Cilicia in 67BC.
    That is just about 100 years before Christianity started.
    In MITHRAISM – There were ceremonies where spiritual purification was believed to come from sprinkling (or like in other brances of Christianity drenching) of the person was baptised with bulls blood or rams blood. This purification meant the person was born again. (also found in eastern idea of spiritual transformation, through “the toungs of fire” or Kundalini and the person is born again or spiritually transformed (this is where the Church gets baptism of the holy spirit from some Christian mystics will say this too)
    The faithful called Mithras (REMEMBER, 4000 years ago!) “the Light of the World”, and a symbol of truth, justice, and loyalty. He was mediator between heaven and earth and was a member of a Holy Trinity, In Ancient persian Culture. These people were born again followers of him when baptised. SOUND FAMILIAR.

    While it’s probably true that pre-Christian pagans practiced some form of baptism, that does not necessarily prove that Christian baptism is originates in paganism, and in fact, it does not. Jesus Himself endorsed the baptism of believers, as did the Apostle Peter (Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38) and was baptized by John the Baptist at the beginning of His ministry (Matthew 3:13-17; Mark 1:9-11; Luke 3:21-23). Pre-Christian Jews also practiced a form of baptism. Baptism was practiced by Christians from the very beginning, during the time of the Apostles (see Acts 2:41, 8:36-38, 9:18).

    Evin, you are so far out in left field that I’m afraid a search party will have to be sent out to find you. First of all the Jesus character is totally irrelevant considering the fact that he, according to the Bible, was a pathological liar and if that weren’t enough, if he actually was fathered by the Hebrew god then that god as well as Mary were involved in adultery. And that according to the Hebrew god’s own immutable law! Mary and Joseph were legally married you see, before she became impregnated by god which of course makes Jesus the bastard child of the Hebrew god. If you had done any research you would have found that Peter was an imaginary character with no basis in fact. Moreover, no one knows who wrote the gospels, the names that those writings have were given to them by misguided people such as yourself.

    It is well documented that new religions adopt the societal practices of a people that they try to convert, there are countless examples. For example, Christmas is a rebranding of the winter solstice celebrations of the shortest day. Also of the Roman celebration of Saturnalia. Your beliefs are your own, but please don’t deny real, actual human history in favour of allegory, fable or dogma.

    None of this is new information to me. There are countless times within the Christian texts where, if the texts are taken at face value, God commands and endorses adoption of some pagan ideas and symbols. One example is how John refers to Jesus as Logos in his gospel, a reference to the then-popular belief in the World Soul.
    Saying that their meaning is hollow in Christianity because they came from other ideologies is like saying that it is unreasonable to trust in a scientific fact proven by another member of the scientific community — you don’t have to be the first person to see or do something for it to count. Imagine if we were never allowed to take advice or ideas from each other? The world would be a much dimmer, duller, and quite frankly unenlightened place.

    People dont understand this. Its not a purification, or a cleansing or a regeneration like you find in ancient societies. The sumerians are the first known civilization that we know of and they practiced baptism in several forms depending on their god and what the result desired was. But these were cleansing and purification ceremonies . Horus was baptized and states in the Egyptian book of the dead that he was being baptized to be purified. The Messiah called baptism a birth. “Except a man be born of water and The Spirit,he can not enter into the kingdom of heaven”. A birth is how he describes the ritual of baptism. They are very different viewpoints. They are not the same. Trying to say The Messiah and horus are the same is ludicrous. They have two very different explanations for baptism.

    Where the heck did this misinformation come from? Im a channeler and i am really grateful that i am a channeler right now. Baptism is Christian and Jewish only. Any idiot saying it is Pagan is spreading misinformation and lies.

    Mithra worship is another form of Monotheism.
