I neither watched nor listened to the Trump-vs-Clinton TV
debate (being that I sensed that irresponsible and
confrontationally-combative feminist-sexist Clinton was
available for the debate regardless of previous-or-ongoing
health issues or whatever)...the two reasons being:
Song of Solomon 2:14 = Oh my dove, in the clefts of the rock, in the covert of the cliff, let me see YOUR face, let me hear YOUR voice, because YOUR voice is sweet, and YOUR face is attractive. (Hillary is not "my dove" whether or not her tersely-harsh blattering voice is "sweet" or her old, wrinkled, coughing face is "attractive").
First Timothy 2:11 = Have a woman learn in silence with all subjection.
12 I allow no woman to teach nor to have authority over men; she is to keep silent.
13 because Adam was formed first, then Eve;
14 and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor.
Satan's accomplices delight in thumbing their libelous nose and uplifting their slanderous 3rd finger pertaining to the verses above by pushing for and promoting the disgraceful and despicable sight of a woman on stage debating Trump vying for the Presidency.
If Hillary gets elected in November of 2016, it will be up-to-four-years of certainly not prefacing her name with the word "president" but rather referring to her as: "Maddamn Clinton."
Scurrilous pro-Hillary, bigoted-bias-bytes propaganda shills have incessantly been and relentlessly are detestfully reminiscent of colorless black-and-white blatterings of Nazi pseudo-journalists in Germany during the 30s and 40s.
According to a number of pro-Hillary-for-woman-President propaganda sources (such as HuffPost, Politico, and even Newsmax), giddy SillyHilly has reveled in her debate-against-Donald jollies, as some japs might have done concerning their assault on Pearl Harbor, but to which one of their military commanders, hearing about the successful devastation inflicted by that efficient surprise-attack invasion, is said to have responded: "I'm afraid that all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant, and fill him with a terrible resolve."
Should Trump debate inferior-gender feminist-twit Hillary again, participating in possible or probable flagrant publicly-disdained disregard against Ecclesiastes 7:26-28, Isaiah 3:12, Nahum 3:13, First Corinthians 14:33-38, First Timothy 2:11-15 and First Peter 3:7?
ONLY IF the Lord Jesus Christ convinces Trump to do that, and then Trump obeys such convincing as an authentic and genuine Presbyterian Christian.
Holy Scripture (both Old and New Testaments) essentially define "sexists" as insubordinate inferior gender (and their [sometimes pro-homosexual] male patsies) who selfishly, inconsiderately, arrogantly, dishonestly, adversarially, and demonically crave women obtaining and exercising authority and predominance (or at least "equality") over and against men.
MOVIE REVIEW OF MEL GIBSON'S HACKSAW RIDGE
One can easily tell that the movie was directed by arguably-Christian Mel Gibson with the positive references to Christianity all throughout the bloody but realistically-gory and very-sobering movie.
Some brief scenes of female-woman bared legs in shorts with her somewhat-loose-long hair hanging below mouth-level were imposed during the movie. And there were brief snippets of sensuous mouth-to-mouth kissing with hugging.
Concerning the blood carnage during much of the movie, I now realize more graphically why my own WWII-veteran and medic dad was so concerned about me acquiring and possessing firearms. The horrible wounding, pain, and bloody incapacitation that results from gunfire and explosions against human bodies is fearfully and frightfully stunning and shocking, to say the least.
To give a brief overview of essential thinking embedded in the entire film . . .
Both police and soldiers know that executing (with whatever weapon) an armed assaulter (with whatever weapon) intending genocide is NOT "murder" nor a violation against the Sixth Commandment of the Ten Commandments listed in Exodus chapter 20 of the Old Testament (i.e. Torah).
Scripture is full of MANY examples of "deserving" offenders being EXECUTED but NOT "murdered" -- not only with God's approval but in obedience to HIS EXPRESSED COMMAND to justifiably "kill" whoever, whenever, and however.
Numbers 21:23 But Sihon would not allow Israel to pass through his territory. He gathered all his men together, and went out against Israel to the wilderness, and came to Jahaz, and fought against Israel.
24 And Israel slew him with the edge of the sword, and took possession of his land from the Arnon to the Jabbok, as far as to the Ammonites; for Jazer was the boundary of the Ammonites.
25 And Israel took all these cities, and Israel settled in all the cities of the Amorites, in Heshbon, and in all its villages.
26 For Heshbon was the city of Sihon the king of the Amorites, who had fought against the former king of Moab and taken all his land out of his hand, as far as the Arnon.
33 Then they turned and went up by the way to Bashan; and Og the king of Bashan came out against them, he and all his people, to battle at Edrei.
34 But the LORD said to Moses: "Do not fear him; for I have given him into your hand, and all his people, and his land; and you shall do to him as you did to Sihon king of the Amorites, who dwelt at Heshbon."
35 So they slew him, and his sons, and all his people, until there was not one survivor left to him; and they possessed his land.
First Samuel 15:33 And Samuel said: "As your sword has made women childless, so shall your mother be childless among women." And Samuel hewed Agag in pieces before the LORD in Gilgal.
First Samuel 17:45 Then David said to the Philistine [palestinian]: "You come to me with a sword and with a spear and with a javelin; but I come to you in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.
46 This day the LORD will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you down, and cut off your head; and I will give the dead bodies of the host of the Philistines this day to the birds of the air and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel,
47 and that all this assembly may know that the LORD saves not with sword and spear; for the battle is the LORD's and He will give you into our hand."
Second Samuel 5:19 And David inquired of the LORD: "Shall I go up against the Philistines? Will you give them into my hand?" And the LORD said to David: "Go up; for I will certainly give the Philistines into your hand."
First Chronicles 14:10 And David inquired of God: "Shall I go up against the Philistines? Will you give them into my hand?" And the LORD said to him: "Go up, and I will give them into your hand."
Second Chronicles 26:6 He went out and made war against the Philistines, and broke down the wall of Gath and the wall of Jabneh and the wall of Ashdod; and he built cities in the territory of Ashdod and elsewhere among the Philistines.
Second Chronicles 26:7 God helped him against the Philistines, and against the Arabs that dwelt in Gurbaal, and against the Meunites.
Isaiah 37:36 And the angel of the LORD went out, and slew a hundred and eighty-five thousand in the camp of the Assyrians; and when men arose early in the morning, hey, these were all dead bodies.
Ezekiel 25:16 therefore thus says the Lord GOD: "Hey, I will stretch out my hand against the Philistines, and I will cut off the Cherethites, and destroy the rest of the seacoast."
In order for conscientious-cooperator pacifist (NOT "coward") and sectarian Seventh-Day Adventist Desmond Doss to not be a lethal distraction, hindrance and obstruction against American soldiers righteously exterminating (or justifiably executing, by flamethrowers and bullets and grenades) japs around him at Okinawa during WW II, Doss obviously had to be Biblically acceptant of those other soldiers on the battlefield who understandably refused to be unarmed pacifists.
The potential problem with Doss and other Seventh-Day pacifists like him is that he wrongly based his anti-execution philosophy on a gross and despicable mistranslation against Old-Testament Scripture pertaining to the Sixth of the Ten Commandments.
Fortunately, executions-ordering President Truman, who bestowed a Medal of Honor on quasi-pacifist Doss, rightly chose to have an American nuclear "rod for the back of fools" incinerate every man, woman, and child at both Hiroshima and Nagasaki, saving not only at least a quarter million American soldier lives but additionally numerous kamikazi-immentality homeland japs.
Second Kings 18:20 Do you think that mere words are strategy and power for war? On whom do you now rely, that you have rebelled against me?
Proverbs 29:19 By mere words a servant is not disciplined, because though they understand, they will not give heed.
Romans 13:4 [Cops] are God's servants for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, because they do not carry the [Glock handgun] in vain; they are servants of God to enforce His wrath on the wrongdoer.
Correct rendition of Strong's Word #7523 pertaining to Exodus 20:13 in trustworthy Hebrew lexicons states the precise word: "murder" rather than the errant word: "kill" as to what one is commanded by the LORD to not do. Many translations of Exodus 20:13 lamentably and absurdly render the incorrect phrase: "You shall not kill" instead of the proper semantics: "You shall not murder."
That is not to say that patriot-and-patriots-supporter Doss was non-justified in refusing to take a rifle to shoot enemy soldiers with during nationally-authorized war, but simply that he (along with other Seventh-Day Adventists with their thankfully-minority-opinion potentially-problematic theological quirks such as vegetarianism and Gregorian-calender-based Saturday worship day) exhibited what St Paul would call allowable preferences for "a weaker brother" in Christ:
Romans 14:1 As for the man who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not for disputes over opinions.
2 One believes he may eat anything, while the weak man eats only vegetables.
3 Let not him who eats despise him who abstains, and let not him who abstains pass judgment on him who eats; for God has welcomed him.
4 Who are you to pass judgment on the servant of another? It is before his own master that he stands or falls. And he will be upheld, for the Master is able to make him stand.
5 One man esteems one day as better than another, while another man esteems all days alike. Let every one be fully convinced in his own mind.
6 He who observes the day, observes it in honor of the Lord. He also who eats, eats in honor of the Lord, being that he gives thanks to God; while he who abstains, abstains in honor of the Lord and gives thanks to God.
7 None of us lives to himself, and none of us dies to himself.
8 If we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord; so then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord's.
9 To this end Christ died and lived again, that He would be Lord both of the dead and of the living.
10 Why do you pass judgment on your companion? Or you, why do you despise your associate? We shall all stand before the Judgment Seat of God,
11 because it is written: "As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall give praise to God."
12 So each of us shall give account of themself to God.
13 Then let us no more pass judgment on one another, but rather decide never to put a stumbling block or hindrance in the way of a comrade.
In the movie, Doss not only gave aid to wounded American soldiers, but to some japs also. That was a mistake, and might have been considered treasonous sin which he had had to repent about (if that aiding-and-abetting-the-enemy actually happened historically) - unless the Lord actually (and in fact!) called him to so treat some of the enemy for whatever strange or bizarre but acceptable reason. Such cause or causes were not apparent to me, and the honorability of his assisting American GIs was both tainted and tarnished by aiding and abetting the enemy who never lost the desire to murder the medic who had helped them if and when they could have.
Second Chronicles 19:2 But Jehu the son of Hanani the seer went out to meet him, and said to King Jehoshaphat: "Should you help the wicked and love those who hate the LORD? Because of this, wrath has gone out against you from the LORD.
Proverbs 19:19 A man of great wrath will pay the penalty, because if you deliver him, you will only have to do it again.
Isaiah 26:10 If favor is shown to the wicked, he does not learn righteousness; in the land of uprightness he deals perversely and does not see the majesty of the LORD.
Doss certainly made up for his weaker-brother carry-no-rifle-to-shoot-the-enemy-with pacifist idiosyncratic "craziness" by helping to very laboriously, dangerously, and sacrificially save alive many soldiers which (at the movie's ending) got their awe-struck respect (which at one such point in the movie brought tears to my eyes).
1. The one addicted to warm-weather publicly-immodest quasi-exhibitionism....or getting drunk with alcohol or narcotics....or smoking.....overeating....or whatever other hang-up....must feel that their addiction is wrong, evil, wicked, inappropriate, unhealthy, despicable, and disgusting -- even in view of St Paul's obviously-needing-qualification statement in First Corinthians chapter 6 that "all things are lawful for me" (including running red stoplights?) which is better rendered: "It is lawful for me to suicidally murder myself because the law and agents thereof cannot arrest, fine, imprison, nor execute me for so doing, so law against such does not apply and is irrelevant." Or: "It is possible for me to do anything possible for me to do without first being stopped by law, which does not mean that the law and their enforcers will not then come after me to retaliate against me if I disobey the law."
2. The one addicted must want to promptly stop their addiction, and not postpone nor delay that stoppage.
3. The one addicted must fervently and repeatedly pray to Christ Jesus to cause them to stop their addiction.
4. The one addicted must have a legitimate substitute or replacement against what addicts and has addicted them, and must - by Scripturally-acceptable means and in practical and logically-workable ways - resolve problems and trouble-causing circumstances related to them which have caused or exacerbated continued enslavement to the addiction.
5. The one addicted must, more and more, and eventually completely (as much as possible), disassociate away from close friends and acquaintances (whether relatives or gang members or business-employee associates or whoever) who exhibit and are enslaved by the same addiction but have expressed absolutely no intention whatsoever to do what it takes to stop their addiction.
6. The one addicted must fear God rather than fear humans and worldly human negativisms coming from them (such as demonic critical or sarcastic remarks, discriminatory shunning or quarantine or isolation or other types of satanic exclusion and defamation, financial deprivation, etc.) which deviant and worldly humans can, would, and will impose against the one wanting to break free from the addiction. In their place, one must associate with non-worldly saint-status-desiring Christian friends who are themselves in the process of breaking free from addiction, or have already done so as much as they have, and inwardly desire to keep on doing.
7. The one addicted must have a traumatic experience, or shocking experience of some type, pertaining to something very important or dear to him or her for them to finally stop being addicted to what they are addicted to.
Homogay and transgender activists, along with their satanic network media, have presumed and yet presume that extortionist-thug threats and deceptively-selective news reports of forbidding travel to anti-GLBT-government-hierarchy North Carolina and similar-intentioned States....plus deceptively-selective media reports of big-name-corporation relocation to elsewhere out of North Carolina et al....have and will scare most American citizens into suckholing to homoqueers and their sexually-perverted-and-accursed homo-heresy apostasy clearly opposed to Leviticus 20:13, Romans 1:26-28, and First Corinthians 6:9-10.
Actually, such might have a silver lining to it all -- in that now that the stink won't be coming into North Carolina and other such States, and the stink will leave those territories, fresh air will return.
It's a free country, and the brave-and-courageous, non-intimidated, police-protected, common citizen nationwide will vote for their own religion (be that genuine-Protestant or authentic-Catholic Christian, Orthodox or Conservative Judaic, or sharia-fervert Islamic), their own personal desires as to where to travel and what to do when they get there, the desires of their family members, and - of course - their own wallet.
All the CEO-type homo activists - nested in their pseudo-security of various eschelons within big-name businesses, along with big-name entertainers - have done is expose themselves as to who they are and their perverse proclivities of what they support -- endangering the reputational and financial sales, investment popularity and profit, and overall well-being against their own corporations and businesses. Added to that, they have incited the righteous to compensate by establishing competitor products and services, regardless of the speed and efficiency by which that is accomplished.
1a. LEVITICUS 27:3-4 = ...your valuation of a male from
20 years old up to 60 years old shall be 50 shekels of silver, according to the
shekel of the sanctuary. If the person is a female, your valuation shall be 30 shekels.
2a. NUMBERS 5:31 = The man shall be free of iniquity, but the woman shall bear her iniquity.
3a. NUMBERS 30:13 = For any vow or binding oath of a wife, her husband may establish, or her husband may make void.
4a. ESTHER 1:16-19 = Remove insubordinate Vashti from being queen, so that other women do not disobey their husbands but rather regard them with honor, and let another better than Vashti be queen instead.
5a. ECCLESIASTES 7:26-28 = I found more bitter than death the woman whose heart is snares and fetters; he who pleases God escapes her, but the sinner is taken by her
....One man among a thousand I found, but a woman among all these I have not found.
6a. ISAIAH 3:12 = My people: CHILDREN are their oppressors, and WOMEN rule over them.
7a. NAHUM 3:13 [RSV] = Hey, your troops are WOMEN around you. The gates of your land are wide open to your enemies; fire has devoured your bars.
8a. I CORINTHIANS 11:3 = I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, the head of a woman is her husband, and the head of Christ is God.
9a. I CORINTHIANS 14:33-38 = God is not a God of confusion, but of peace. As in all the churches of the saints, the WOMEN should keep silence in the churches. They are NOT allowed to speak...it is shameful for a WOMAN to speak in church.
10a. I TIMOTHY 2:12-14 = I allow NO woman to teach or have authority over MEN; she is to keep silent....Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor.
11a. I PETER 3:7 = ......bestow honor on the woman as the weaker gender.....
1b. EXODUS 20:13 = If a man lies with a
male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall be put to death, their blood is upon them.
2b. ROMANS 1:26-27 = God have them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural, and likewise the men gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with lust for one another: men committing shameful acts with men and receiving in their own bodies the consequential penalty for their error.
3b. I CORINTHIANS 6:9-10 = Do you not know that the non-righteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor robbers will inherit the kingdom of God.
1c. LUKE 1:36 = Hey, your relative Elizabeth in her old age has also
conceived a SON (Gr. uion) - [not simply a "fetus"]
2c. LUKE 1:44 = Hey, when the voice of your greeting came to my ears, the BABE (Gr. brephos) - [and not merely wanted or non-wanted convenient or inconvenient costly-to-support or cheap-to-support surgical tissue] - leaped in my WOMB
3c. LUKE 2:16 = They came in a hurry and found Mary and Joseph, and the BABE (Gr. brephos - the same, exact, identically-spelled Greek word as in Luke 1:44) lying in a MANGER
[ This web writer does not know of any greater proof than the aforementioned EXACT and PRECISE words of THE INERRANT NEW-TESTAMENT GREEK TEXT to prove beyond a questionable doubt in any American or foreign court that non-born human babies are legally-protectable HUMAN PERSONS in the wombs!
1. LOOSE long hair (hanging lower than MOUTH-level)...contrary to RSV's and NASV's Numbers 5:18 [unbinding/loosening woman's hair], Song of Solomon 7:5 [sensuous flowing locks] , plus KJV/MKJV's First Corinthians 11:14-16, the latter of which implies that the display of a woman's glorious (and erotically-enticing) loose-long-haired mopheadedness in general public view instead of a veil covering is not the custom of the churches of God.
2. [NAKED] SLEEVELESS arms.....violating RSV's and NASV's Second Samuel 13:18
3. [NUDE] legs exposed by summer or gymnastic shorts, shortened skirts of any length, slitted skirts, or swimwear...against KJV's and NASV's Isaiah 47:1-4
4. BARE feet or PARTS of feet viewable with sockless sandals or clogs....opposed to KJV's Jeremiah 2:25.
Cute and beautiful erotic artwork (made of and viewed only by the married couples themselves alone together for sensual titillation and private-couple remembrance) is not at any time for viewing nor reasonably-potential viewing by the public at large.
Child nudity is to be seen by midwives performing (not "committing") birth deliveries, and for parents of their own infants.
Censored to everyone is ALL male and/or female homosexual contacts of ANY and ALL types, plus porn depicting bestiality, multiple men on or in the same woman, transsexuals, abusive bondage, and (under-aged) children in sexual-connections poses.
Thanks to the Restraining Power [mentioned in II Thessalonians 2:3-12] of the Holy Spirit and His Church of those older (and even some younger) saints still having sufficient financial, legal, property, and political power....plus circumstantial "acts of God" [in His favor].....widespread panic and chaotic anarchy has so far been avoided.
Are all womb-babes and infants automatically sanctified at the
time, and thus "holy" - whether they have a believing dad and
disbelieving mom or vice-versa (see Romans 7) or both parents
are either believers or disbelievers?
"The children shall not suffer for the sins of the parents" says Ezekiel chapter 18 (even though the context of that chapter seems to mainly apply to having-reaching-accountability-age sons with daughters never mentioned).
Although womb-babes and newborns are "born into sin" and "conceived in sin" per Psalm 51:5 (as in the case of the virgin Mary non-coitally conceiving Jesus), not-yet-born babes are "called by God" and "elected for salvation" not by works of human-effort water baptism but because of "God's call" - accordinging to Romans 9:11, which babes are qualified for such, being that they have "done nothing either good or bad" in pre-and-post context according to that verse.
So IS pedobaptism (or paedobaptism), in which "rantismos" is performed (i.e. sprinkling or pouring water on the head and not instead merely on the feet for footwashing compliance of and for those already mostly and adequately bathed in water and not fully immersed....NOR COMPLETELY submerged in either dirty river water or literally in the actual chromosome-rich "the blood of the Lamb") justifiable - despite complete absence of the mention of any womb-babe perhaps preordained and commissioned by God to be a future prophet when yet womb-confined (Jeremiah 1:5), or newborn infant, in the entirety of the Old-and-New-Testaments Holy Bible?
Was the penitent thief on his cross baptized with water after giving his testimony-like petition to Jesus as "Lord" prior to his painful demise?
Moreover, even though a fully-aware-of-what-they-are-choosing pre-baptized adult utters words ALLEGING belief in the Law and gospel of Christ, IS their testimony trustworthy and credible, even in view of Scripture stating: "By your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned" (Matthew 12:37)....and at WHAT point does a pre-baptized man or woman's obvious or concealed CARNALITY of whatever types and severities disqualify his or her profession of belief in and allegiance to Christ's Law and gospel of gracious atonement as justification?
Explore www.reformedreader.org/rbb/broadus/immersionbroadus.htm and www.seeking4truth.com/is_infant_baptism_protestant.htm plus other essays on the Web concerning rather than regarding fatal-immersion-only water baptism, or non-immersion-is-best argumentation.
During baptizing, no mention of anointer or baptizer hand contact on what body parts of anointed or baptized is ever mentioned anywhere in Scripture, nor total submersion in a muddy river, nor lethally drowning a person underwater for literal application of "being buried with Christ in baptism" [Romans 6:4]. "Removal of dirt from the body" is not the intent for baptism but rather "appeal to God for a clear conscience" according to First Peter 3:21 by washing with pure, non-previously-used, non-stagnant-water-in-baptismal-font, sanitary running water [Leviticus 15:13 and Hebrews 10:22] by a husband with the Word [Ephesians 5:26], [erotically] assisting his own believing wife [First Corinthians 7:1] which (also fulfilling the footwashing command of Jesus in John 13:3-15) is best accomplished by a believing wife, at her believing husband's bidding and under his authority (be he believing bishop, deacon, teacher, healer, etc.) carefully stepping into a moderate-to-warm-temperature non-forceful shower as her husband pronounces her baptized in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit [Matthew 28:19] after she has given her Christian testimony to him [Matthew 3:6, Mark 1:5, Acts 8:12].
Mis-rendering Galatians 3:27 as: "He who believes and is baptized may be saved, and he who does not believe but is baptized is also saved" perhaps seems revisionist to the soxless and associated perverts giving a barefeet sexshow to a erectable congregational audience as the (especially-female) exhibitionist trots into and out of some baptismal font.
Of course, there is nothing which I know of in the totality of Scripture which forbids genuine Christians from participating in communion not "often" but instead only annually at Passover, nor bowing face down to the ground toward Mecca or Jerusalem any number of times throughout the day, nor anything that forbids some from liturgically confessing their sins audibly to congregation or pastor during the first Sunday of every month, nor prohibits others from being partially or totally immersed (even head-sprinkled) with water or perhaps blood (Hebrews 9:19) every or every other Sunday morning during church services.
An alternate (though, arguably, less preferable method of baptismal immersion) is - after the baptized-to-be has given testimonial confession and gospel belief declaration - for a male pastor (observed by males-only spectators)....or female deaconess (viewed by a females-only audience)....to have the baptized-to-be stand near the edge of a clean-water, shallow-enough, jacuzzi-like, swimming pool with recycling water, and right before pushing them into the water, and them dropping their baptismal robe to the ground, utter the phrase: "I baptize you in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit" then toss the newly-baptized a large-enough bathtowel after they climb the ladder out of the pool.
Infants also can be showered instead of head-or-feet anointed for water baptism, but with special care and precaution, after which they are expected to continue in and consciously accept for and by themselves their believing-parents-instigated involuntarily-incepted-at-the-time baptismal Covenant of Grace when they reach the age of consent or denial. Decisions thereof are generally made public in various ways.
Many who were head-sprinkled as infants during church services cherish their nicely-calligrafied Baptismal Certificate, and see no need to be re-baptized again or often in some kind of "believer's baptism" (as if their infant baptism in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit using non-copious quantity of water was supposedly illegal, invalid, evil, or damnable).
If mere sprinkling with water on the infant's head is the technique preferred, what transpires for the newly-baptized infant thereby brought into God's Covenant Family church is sort of like a million dollars being put into an escrow account for the infant -- only to be claimed at a future Confirmation Ceremony or Altar Call by the then-accountability-aged previously-infant-baptized adult to proclaim acquisition (with mandatory Biblical-doctrines-duty strings attached) of that million-dollar covenant previously laid aside for them...rather than rejecting it (done by apostates because of their disdain against and rejection of required Christian-lifestyle responsibilities associated with claiming the covenant money-equivalent).
