INFANT BAPTISM AND JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES

Translated from the original by Chris Tsilikas


One of the topics that Jehovah’s Witnesses love to talk about with Orthodox Christians is infant baptism, because they think that they will bring Christians into disposition with this issue. “Why do you baptize your children when they are infants or too young, and thus unable to understand the reason why they are baptized? Don’t you coerce them into becoming Christians this way? Don’t you deprive them of free will? Why don’t you give them the right to decide on their own, the right to choose whether THEY WANT TO BE BAPTIZED ORTHODOX CHRISTIANS or not, when they have grown up and they have FREELY got to know the teachings of Christianity?”

CHRISTIAN SYMBOLS AND THEIR MEANING

Translated from the original by Chris Tsilikas


Orpheus – Christ

The human need for divine communication, the need to feel the divine nature close to him/her and thank it, existed right from the beginning of human existence and was expressed not only through worship and prayer, but through art as well.

Therefore, in all eras and in all religions man created works of art deserving admiration, such as the enormous Ziggurat (a kind of pyramid) in ancient Mesopotamia, the Temple of Solomon in Israel, the Parthenon in ancient Greece, the Taj Mahal in India and so on so forth in an endless list of any kind of art.
