Atheists choose 'de-baptism' to renounce childhood faith
Up until last summer, Jennifer Gray of Columbus, Ohio, considered herself "a weak Christian" whose baptism at age 11 in a Kentucky church came to mean less and less to her as she gradually lost faith in God.

Then the 32-year-old medical transcriptionist took a decisive step, one that previously hadn't been available. She got "de-baptized."

In a type of mock ceremony that's now been performed in at least four states, a robed "priest" used a hairdryer marked "reason" in an apparent bid to blow away the waters of baptism once and for all. Several dozen participants then fed on a "de-sacrament" (crackers with peanut butter) and received certificates assuring they had "freely renounced a previous mistake, and accepted Reason over Superstition." ...

Job Description, New York,

Jennifer's faith in God got bad???
You cannot lose something you never had!
This hairdryer marked reason.
Blowing smoke where it aint freezin.

De-baptize.
The father of lies.
Does thou hear Anton's cries?
Look not up at the skies.

A "sinner" sees himself in need.
"Look": HE who did vicarious bleed.
If baptism was only by water.
Reservation is getting hotter.

No hell . . . a superstition.
Hell bent, unreasonable position.
ETERNITY for all - God has made aware.
One sure thing - "YOU" will be there!!!

When you were baptized as a child.
Ceremony left unchanged, a heart wild.
Atheist, did you ever ponder.
The roll that counts, is up yonder.

Inconsequential; debaptize or rebaptize.
FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST,nothing else flys!

JOHN Chapter 3

Only in America!
the whore who influences all others by there sorcery.
The satanic music industry.That christians dabble in.be seperate!

The satanic Movie industry.That christian dabble in.be seperate!

The puppet Masonic Demon worship government you have over their is where you should be aware of. Be not ignorant of satan devices That christian voted for republican = a tick for demons, democrat, tick for = satan.

Why do you think government all round the world want unlimited access to our children and teenagers and distract then away from real reading and real knowlege of God. "Lovers of pleasure" is great key the devil uses to rid the people of a real relationship with God. Remember the parable of the siols. why is your government giving free coupon on set top boxes when money is hard to come by? Worldlyness destroys the good seed! The above artical is only about spitting on God. Christ is coming not as a lamb anymore but as a LION! Be prepared "Really". This is just my own conviction about where we are at. WE need real revivial badly we are all in bad shape including me.

I wonder if they wear a debaptism robe light a debaptism candle have a cake?

It sounds like a religious ritual to me, maybe it is a sacrament of their atheist faith...

Who presides over it, Dawkins or Christopher Hitchens the atheist pope and cardinal? Christianity really has got right into their soul...Come judgement day their conscience will dutifully spill the beans and their atheist lips will be well and truly sealed.Oh to be a fly on the wall witnessing that very one way conversation!

God, "Anything to say in your defence?"

Atheist, "MMMM MMMM MMMM".

Jesus, "I don't know him".

God, "Take him down, take that book off him, and throw that God delusion book over there with the other false idols."

If they really don't believe, why are they doing this? Conscience is bothering them.

So their original act of water baptism, which was supposed to symbolize an already accomplished spiritual baptism, symbolized nothing for them.

Now they’re trying to undo an act that symbolized nothing with another meaningless symbolic act.

Bizarre!

Is this a comedy sketch script?
I think this has to be one of the stupidest things I've ever heard.
Or perhaps "deluded"....
2Thes 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie
Stupid indeed. The poor deluded participant atheists wouldn't be atheists at all if they were capable of reason.

This ranks up there with "gay marriage" and other perversions practiced.

Rom 2:2 But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things.
