Jehovah’s Witnesses views on child baptism

When asked about infant baptism, all Jehovah’s Witnesses will answer clearly that no, Jehovah’s Witnesses do not practice infant baptism. They base this claim in the fact that a Christian must be able to consciously make a decision to accept the faith and Jesus’s sacrifice, and that’s something an infant cannot do. This does not mean that Jehovah’s Witnesses are against child baptism. In fact, Jehovah’s Witnesses not only do practice child baptism —they encourage it and put children at risk by the associated exclusionary practice of “shunning” those that are disfellowshipped or who disassociate from their faith. Let’s see how.
