Question 55.

Hi Father I was christened as a baby in Greek Orthodox Church , Is it ok to get baptised as an adult In another Christian church?

 

Answer to Question 55.

 

We only get baptized once, but why would you want to leave the only one true church to join another denomination that teaches something contrary to the truth of the Gospels? As you haven't said which denomination this is I cannot say what their requirements are for initiation into their fold. They may not recognize your baptism in the Orthodox Church and may insist on baptism. Before making such a dreadful mistake can I help you to understand the Orthodox faith? Is there anything that I can say to stop you? If you don't want to discuss it openly you can pm me and we can talk.
