According to both the Holy Bible and the Westminster Standards, being unbaptized or being rebaptized are sins. Too, omitting to have one’s baby baptized, is to break God’s Law.
Scripture teaches such three sins are transgressions of the Second Commandment of the Law of God. For the Decalogue commands that God be worshipped only in the authorized way — and not through any ‘graven images’ or unauthorized practices (such as re- or non-baptism) contrary to His revealed will.
