One question that comes up from time to time among Christian fathers is whether they Biblically have the right to baptize their children. This actually raises a much bigger issue that must be addressed first that will make the answer to the question obvious.
It is deeply ingrained into our modern psyche that there is a gap between vocational ministry and “lay” people. We have been conditioned to believe that there are “professionals” who have been given some sort of 3rd party credentials that make them “qualified” to be paid to do ministry as a full time career. And then there is everyone else.
