Do you have to present your child[ren] to the Lord?

Where in the bible does it say that you have to go to the alter of a church and present your child?

As a parent, if you do not do this are you damned to hell?





A Christian friend keeps insisting I do this, and I disagree completely.

I'm curious to know your opinions or if you have done it yourself or as I have chosen not to do it.

Thanks.

Sarah
