Atheist groups are looking for ways to undo their baptisms. Some are calling on the Church of England to devise a way to take their names off baptismal rolls. Some are printing out “debaptism certificates” to display that renounce the Christian faith. See BBC NEWS | UK | Atheists call for ‘debaptism’. The thing is, though, they can’t wash away the waters of baptism! Christ has called them to Himself. They can return to that baptism at any time. That atheists should be so obsessed about what they consider a meaningless ritual is itself evidence that baptism has a hold on them.
