Princess Charlotte, Infant Baptism, and Holy Water

 Baptismal Font

Baptismal Font

The baptism of Princess Charlotte of Cambridge was July 5, 2015. She was just two months old. 'Holy water' from the Jordan river was flown in. A special baptismal font was used, and 'godparents' were part of this. Was this a truly biblical thing to do? Did early Christians use 'holy water', sprinkle for baptism, or baptize infants? What about Polycarp of Smyrna? Dr. Thiel cites the Bible and historical records to answer these questions.
