CAUTION AGAINST TRADITIONAL RELIGIOUS DECEPTION: By inserting the ‘sign of the beast’ or the cross, the scriptural passage on baptism was drastically revised by Roman Catholicism not known to believers.
While Christ commanded his disciples “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit”, Roman Catholicism on the other hand did insert the ‘sign of the cross’ in baptism using the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. This ‘sign of the cross’ is being placed by the priest on the forehead of the child, who is being baptized.
Christ mentioned only the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit but Roman Catholicism deceptively added the ‘sign of the cross’ in baptism. The verses, where the command is found, are as follows:
18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28: 18-20, English Standard Version)
Quoted for reference also is an article from ask.com:
“In catholic baptism the priest welcomes the parents and the child at the church’s door, then the priest ask the God parents and parents if they are willing and committed to bring up their child as a Christian faithful. Then he traces the sign of the cross on the forehead of the child, God parents and parents to do the same by using the holy water.”

“In a Catholic baptism, the priest welcomes the child and the parents at the door of the church. At the door, the priest asks the parents and God-parents if they are willing to bring up the child as a Christian. The priest then traces the sign of the cross on the child’s forehead and the parents and God-parents do the same using water which has been blessed.”
“During an infant’s baptism service, the guardians make promises on behalf of the child. While doing this they must also affirm their own Christian faith. After this, water is poured on their heads by the priest and a visible sign of the cross is made on the forehead as a sign of belonging to Christ.”
