No longer will OSAS vx OSNAS be allowed to be debated, argued, or discussed in theology forum. Too much time is required to monitor and rescources used to debate this subject which hasn't been definitively decided in 3,000 years.
Thanks for your response. I am Lutheran, and we confirm our faith, so I'm not against it. When I hear you say you want to "be" confirmed, it sounds more like a ritual you want to take part in than making a public confession of your faith. I don't want to get hung up on your wording, so you can explain if you'd like.
I don't believe the Bible is for or against confirmation. If this is done to glorify God in a public confession of faith, I'm all in favor of a marriage starting on that foundation. It's a beautiful thing when it comes from the heart, but not so much when it's seen as something a church is doing for or to you, IMHO. Unfortunately, most teens in our church seem to take the latter approach.
If you are being Led to do this, I don't believe God wants you to wait, especially for your child's christening. Then it really sounds like a ritual.
I'll stick my neck out and say that one's relationship with a local church is pretty meaningless unless the person first of all has that personal, vital faith in the Lord Jesus. I don't know you, and it may be that you are already a regular Bible reader, and so I can encourage you to make a habit of a prayerful, dependent Bible reading day by day. (Maybe read John's Gospel, where the text, above, is taken from.)
