I believe what Robert says is true. Being baptized is a belief system's physical manifestation of being Baptized In The Spirit. When parents have infants baptized it only means that it represents their desire that their child find and follow the path leading to The Maker. A positive, spiritual path. In the context of Christianity it literally means "to follow the Tenets of Christ". These tenets are the same that have been laid out by every figurehead of every major belief system. If the Bible says that that you will be destroyed for no longer being a Christian it only means that if you turn your back on and reject these tenets you will be destroyed; not by God but by yourself and at the hands of others who have also rejected these tenets
. This is where a lot of people draw erroneous conclusions from biblical statements such as that. They envision a vengeful, fire-and-brimstone type of God. A physical punishment exacted by God. This is not the case. What greater vengeance could The Maker exact than to do nothing but leave you to your own fate? Turn your back on the tenets of Peace, Love, and Harmony that are expounded upon in every belief system (such as Christianity and Wicca) and you've cast yourself adrift and laid yourself open to the acts of every other human who has also rejected those tenets (and there are plenty of those as you well know!).
The greatest vengeance of all is to leave you alone and to your own devices under those circumstances, eh? This is the potential pitfall of Free Will. Going to your own Hell in your own hand-basket.
So don't get hung up on the physical aspects of being baptized. You're already on that spiritual path. And all spiritual paths eventually lead to The Maker.
Just my thoughts. Blessings to you along your path!
