Baptised As A Catholic

Everyone in my family was baptised romanian orthodox. I do want my 2 children (ages 5 and 7) to go to a catholic school. If we convert, how long does it take; and can my children be baptised again, but catholic?

Don't waste your time. The rcc & cc Are Man-made relig org's that is here Matt.15 v 9 & came from here 2nd.Cor.11 v's 14 - 15.
These relig people with their idol worship etc IS an abomination to Almighty God & God has Nothing to do with it.

They have already been been Baptized; there is no valid Biblical reason to ever repeat it. To do so prostitutes the original act.

Emcee, hope you're well. an observation about your response to Mark concerning groaning...what Mark says is scriptural: Romans 8:26
"In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express."

Marian devotion is not idolatry, it is Christocentric as is the Rosary. The spirit is present at the Mass in many ways but most directly when in the concecration ordinary bread and wine are changed into the body and blood of our Lord. Matt. 26:26; Mark. 14:22; Luke 22:19-20 - the Greek phrase is "Touto estin to soma mou." This phraseology means "this is actually" or "this is really" my body and blood.

Jody, if anything that you said was true, I wouldn't be a Catholic. Fortunately, you and others like you are just source of amusement for those of us who know better ;)

I am glad that you found Christ and I hope that you don't allow yourself to stagnate. Please read the Bible often and pray for the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

Mark N, if you were Baptised with water in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost, then the RCC recognises your baptism as valid. And if you follow the guidance of the scriptures you will not be damned for that.

Now I too have been baptised, by pouring with water, I have experienced the power the Holy Ghost in me and my body is a living tabernacle in accordance with the scriptures. Do you accept that I am born again and saved, or have you decided that I am damned?

Emcee, I didn't think you as a catholic would understand. Here it is right out of God's Word: Ro 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. I need not see a physician as I know the Great Physician :-) I have been in catholic services and have never felt the Spirit of the Lord at any time, from childhood until now.

Scripture doesn't recognize denominations. Only the teaching of His Word. Spirit filled believers who study the Word know this to be true. Baptism is for all who have recieved Christ Jesus by Faith in His Word.

Mark::Its not what the RCC thinks personally I dont think they know you exist.But if you are groaning & in painPlease see a physician.I do not believe jesus groaned & moaned even in his greatest agony,for the sins caused by Humanity to shut tight the Gates of Heaven.
---Emcee on 5/7/07

I beg your pardon, going to any church won't save you Catholic or any other denomination. If Jesus has truly bought you through His blood the denomination of church is between the believer and God. Also there is NO denomination that's perfect. It's the blood, the empty tomb, Jesus Christ. Makes the difference.

As a "born again Christian" from an athiestic background, it would be wrong of me to not respond to you. The Bible teaches against praying before an Idol (Mary) , ritualistic prayer (rosery) , squelching of gifts of the spirit (lack of use at mass), and other legalistis issues involved in Catholic false doctrine. The Bible says that we must be "born again" for salvation and the Catholic Church makes no provision for that. Catholics are not born again and therefore are hell bound.
---jody on 5/7/07

Lorra and Emcee, I am saved; I can tell you when it happened and how it happened. I have been baptised by submersion (immersion) I also have the Holy Spirit living inside of me, leading and guiding. From time to time the Holy Spirit has let me to pray in tongues, even in groanings... Do you think the rcc would consider that I am a member of the family of God, the Bride of Christ or am I lost according to the catholic faith.
---MARK_N on 5/6/07

The Catholic Church recognises the baptisms of the Romanian Orthodox church as valid and perfectly acceptable. Depending on where you are, you may not have to convert at all to attend a Catholic school, you just have to accept that it will have Catholic teachings, prayers and bibles in the school. If you are in an area that requires you to convert first, there are usually RCIA (for adults) and RCIC (children) programs run through the Lenten Season for full reception into the Church at Easter.

Adriana::If you are seeking advice My advice is to see the priest of the RC church nearest you talk to him& ask his advice also Pray.Learn about Catholicism which is not set too far apart from your birth teachingget your children enrolled in a catholic schoolTeach them to pray fervently& good luck on your Transition.Gods Blessings on you & your Family.Please do not be swayed by other denominations on this net.
---Emcee on 5/5/07

Andriana, you don't understand the ways of God. You must be Born Again. It will change your life.
---Johnny on 5/5/07

You would need to speak to a priest. It won't take long for your children since they are still very young. Some baptisms are recognized in the Catholic church, so it would depend. As for adults converting to Roman Catholic you have to go through RCIA. And it can usually take a few months for that. Still it depends on the programs at your local church and your talk with a priest. I'd also recommend that you get involved in your church so that you feel a part of it.

I don't believe your children must be baptized Catholic in order to attend Catholic school. You need to be concerned as to whether your children are born again as Jesus said in the Third Chapter of John. Baptism, by any denomination, does not save anyone. Your children need to be born again by their own decision and not yours. Do you know Jesus Christ yourself? That's important.
---Susie on 5/5/07

Baptism Scripturally is only for those who are already born-again. Baptism is an outward sign of what one inwardly believes, that is that they are crucified with Christ, buried with Christ and risen with Christ in newness of life.
