Book of Mormon Examined
Examination of Moroni, Chapter Eight
8 Listen to the words of Christ, your Redeemer, your Lord and your God. Behold, I came
into the world not to call the righteous but sinners to repentance; the whole need no
physician, but they that are sick; wherefore, little children are whole, for they are not
capable of committing sin; wherefore the curse of Adam is taken from them in me, that it
hath no power over them; and the law of circumcision is done away in me.
9 And after this manner did the Holy Ghost manifest the word of God unto me; wherefore,
my beloved son, I know that it is solemn mockery before God, that ye should baptize little
10 Behold I say unto you that this thing shall ye teach—repentance and baptism unto those
who are accountable and capable of committing sin; yea, teach parents that they must
repent and be baptized, and humble themselves as their little children, and they shall all
be saved with their little children.
Examining the above three verses give us clear truth about God’s view of baptizing small
children. Where in the Bible is this doctrine taught so clearly on this aspect of baptism?
The ancient American prophet Mormon is teaching his son Moroni what was revealed
by God through revelation, after Mormon had become troubled about disputations on
this subject of infant baptism.
When relevant Biblical verses are examined, regarding infant innocence, it makes sense.
