I see your point, but isn't it still nicer to teach a child that
"I am a child of God and he has sent me here, has given me an earthly home with parents kind and dear, lead me guide me walk beside me, help me find the way, teach me all that I must do to live with him some day." That is basically stating the same thing, (we are all sinners) only reversed isn't it? It infers that a child needs to be taught correct principles by his mother and father in order to live with God again some day. In the Mormon church it is basic to our belief that a child is capable of understanding right from wrong at the age of 8, if he or she has been taught correct principles. Therefore, we baptize at the age of 8.

The Bible teaches very clearly, as you state, the importance of faith, repentance, baptism, and of course obediance to the commandments of God.
