    You don't go to heaven just because you've been baptized. The act of baptism is just a showing of your conversion. Babies that are sprinkeled are not truly baptized. They have no say in the matter. That is the parents saying they will raise the child in the church. Going to heaven can only be accomplished by a saving faith in Jesus. There is NO other way.

    Medically I would say it is possible since a person can drown in a teaspoon of water. The person running the operation is to hold the nose and keep the mouth shut. Not to say it is just for a second or two.

    This is probably not a religion question but a legal one of being charged for murder.

    If you're asking from a Catholic perspective you would go to heaven because you had the intent to be baptised.

    If you're asking from a Protestant perspective, your salvation would be based on the state of your heart (if you have the sincere intent to repepnt and accept Jesus's payment for your sins and identify with him in his death and resurrection, you are saved), not based on the physical circumstances and surroundings and what event happened when.

    I in no way heard of all of us drowning: WHAT THE BIBLE TEACHES ?Christian baptism is composed of finished immersion in water, no longer in basic terms sprinkling.—Matthew 3:sixteen. ?Steps maximum suitable to baptism start up with taking in expertise and showing faith accompanied via repentance, conversion, and the dedicating of oneself to God.—John 17:3; Acts 3:19; 18:8. ?To make a dedication to Jehovah, you're able to disown your self, whilst human beings disowned themselves to stick to Jesus.—Mark 8:34. ?Baptism symbolizes dying to one’s former way of existence and becoming to be alive to do God’s will.—a million Peter 4:2.

    yep straight to Heaven. The Church recognizes something called Baptism of desire and that certainly fits the bill

    yes, because you were still "being baptized". it's not like he'd kick you out on a "technicality". Five more seconds and you'd have been done. it's not like you would have backed out on it half way underwater.

    Once you are submerged you are saved. You go straight into the arms of Jesus Hernandez Christ, if you drown just then.
