In reply to Prayer on Beliefnet Upset Me, posted by corafree on February 14, 2005, at 11:50:28

I am troubled with that too, but in Lou's context, it makes some difference. If Adam's sin was the only sin a person could be held accountable for I could understand infant baptism.

I have enjoyed things on beliefnet, but have also found that some ideas are misrepresented. I certainly hope it doesn't turn you off reading the Bible. May I suggest before you read the prayer of the day you offer a prayer from your heart and ask God to help put it into context so you might understand the intended message? Prayer and Scriptures go together.

http://scriptures.lds.org/a_of_f/1 This link explains my belief, and demonstates a different way of looking at baptism.
People of my faith believe ( #2 in the link) that we are held accountable for our own actions in life, not for Adam's, and that (#3) all mankind may be saved through the Atonement and by obedience. It takes faith, (4) repentance, baptism at an age of accountability. We receivie the gift of the Holy Ghost (5) by the laying on of hands by someone who has the authority and has been called of God by authority, the same authority as was found in the primitive church complete with (6) prophets, pastors, teachers, evangelists, etc. We incorporate all the spiritual gifts (7), and believe the Bible and the Book of Mormon to be the revealed word of God (8). We also believe that God may still reveal (9) great and important things as Israel gathers, the ten tribes return, (10) and as Zion (The New Jerusalem) is built upon the American continent in preparation for Christ's paradisiacal reign. We believe in religious freedom for all (11), but at the same time subject ourselves to local governments (12) and take the honest, true, virtuous approach to obedience (13). All this because we know and believe in God the Eternal Father, His son Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost (1).
