Hey fellas. Looking for a little input on something. My wife and I are expecting a baby in a couple weeks and we've been going back and forth on something. My mother has been asking whether or not we are going to baptize our baby. I grew up Catholic, but religion is really not an important part of my life anymore and my wife and I rarely go to church. My wife was baptized Lutheran, but she has never really been religious. I feel it may be hypocritical if we baptize and not be involved with the church. However, I know if we don't baptize my parents (and grandparents) will be extremely disappointed in us. Also, I'm thinking if we baptize our child can be a part of the church in the future if he or she chooses. Any experience or advice?
