    Paedobaptists believe that the infant offspring of believers enjoy hereditary right to the covenant of grace, and due to their “baptism” they have full membership privileges in that local church. These churches that ascribe to this practice of “infant baptism” would never consider baptizing an infant whose parents are unbelievers. Jerome, against the Pelagians book 3 par 19 ( ad) One thing I will say and so end my discourse, that you ought either to give us a new creed, so that, after baptizing children into the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, you may baptize them into the kingdom of heaven; or, if you have one baptism both for infants and for persons of mature age, it follows that infants also should.

I am fairly sure that most Baptist pastors, at the present time, do not agree with infant baptism. We do differ with the PCA on the candidate and mode of baptism as a whole. I am sure there are some who would differ. (Baptists believe in believer’s baptism and PCA do practice infant Author: Bart Barber.

    For we must look at the point which especially concerns the matter before us (whatever be the nature of the baptism of John, since it is clear that he belongs to the unity of Christ), viz., what is the reason for which it was right that men should be baptized again after receiving the baptism of the holy John, and why they ought not to be.   That infants are capable of being made proselytes or disciples has been already proved; therefore this text, rightly translated, is no valid objection against infant baptism. 2. Their next objection is: “The Scripture says, ‘Repent and be baptized; believe and be baptized.’ Therefore, repentance and faith ought to go before baptism.

The Bloody Waters of Baptismal Persecution. Chapter Eight The Bloody Waters of Baptismal Persecution “18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. 19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The. Not only do Christians hold that baptism is a symbolic ceremony meant to demonstrate a believer’s faith in Jesus Christ, but it also identifies believers with the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ.

Baptism is an extraordinary symbol of being buried with Christ unto death and being resurrected with Christ in newness of life. Not a word is said of “infant baptism,” nor any allusion made to it in the Bible; while the plain and positive teaching of the Bible, that believers only were baptized in apostolic times, and that only such are now proper subjects of baptism, virtually prohibits the baptism of infants.

SIXTHLY, Another reason why I firmly believe, infant-baptism will hereafter be no more practiced, is, because Antichrist will be entirely consumed with the spirit or breath of Christ's mouth, and with the brightness of His coming (2 Thess.

), that is, with the pure and powerful preaching of His word, at His coming to take to Himself His. It is true that St. John Chrysostom (Horn., xxviii in Joan.), Theophylactus (in cap. iii, Joan.), and Tertullian (De Bapt., c. ii) declare that the baptism given by the Disciples of Christ as narrated in these chapters of St.

Origin of the baptism of private individuals and women. An argument in favour of it refuted. The fact, then, that no creed of the Waldenses, that no book or document of theirs, makes the slightest commendatory allusion to infant baptism, until at this time, in this creed, drawn up and adopted at the suggestion of the enemies and persecutors of the Baptists, by an assembly who reproach their fathers and their old ministers with "many.

WITH A brief ANSWER to a late Book, called, A Treatise concerning Laying on of Hands; written by a nameless Author.

By B. Introductory Notes Baptism is one of two sacraments accepted by Reformed denominations because it was commanded and instituted by Christ himself (Matt. In the Reformed confessions and theological writings about baptism, as well as in contemporary ecumenical documents such as Baptism, Eucharist and Ministry (), the following themes are prominent: a.

We practice "believers" baptism as opposed to infant or adult baptism. We believe it is not the age or maturity of the individual that is of chief concern, but their spiritual condition.

To be candidate for baptism, one must be a "saved" individual - having personally expressed repentance towards God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Scripture: 1 Peter There is also an antitype which now saves us, namely baptism (not the removal of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God), through the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

(NKJV) Liberal Interpretation: Water baptism is not essential for salvation. You can be saved by a good conscience only. The Greek word used in the New Testament for baptism is baptisma (bap'-tis-mah).

The word means "to immerse" or dip under the water. There is no record of any church "sprinkling" or "pouring" in the New Testament. Those who use these methods get their practice from the opinions of man, not from what God has cleared stated in the Bible.

Again, in his book against the Donatists, speaking directly of infant baptism, he says: "If any one asks for divine authority in this matter, although that which the whole church practices, which was not instituted by councils, but was ever in use, is very reasonably believed to be no other than a thing delivered by the authority of the.

People are baptized because they are regarded as children of God, and not so that they should begin to become sons.

Otherwise, there would be no reason not to baptize the children of unbelievers as well as children of believers” (Bellarmine Unnerved, II:1, p.

In multiple places, Kiffin turned Bunyan’s argument against him. Bunyan did not accept infant baptism; he believed that people coming into his church with that background were coming unbaptized. But nowhere in the Bible was “unbaptism” approved or baptism considered unnecessary.

Difficulties About Baptism - by Dr. Douglas Bannerman Covenant Theology - God's Master Plan to Give His Son Jesus Christ a Bride Today, many Christians are turning back to the puritans to, “walk in the old paths,” of God’s word, and to continue to proclaim old truth that glorifies Jesus Christ.

On the Merits and Forgiveness of Sins, and on the Baptism of Infants my dearest Marcellinus, discussed at sufficient length, I think, in the former book the baptism of infants,—how that it is given to them not only for entrance into the kingdom of God, but also for attaining salvation and eternal life, which none can have without the.The rector rectified and corrected, or, Infant-baptism unlawful being a sober answer to a late pamphlet entituled An argumentative and practical discourse of infant-baptism, published by Mr.

William Burkit, rector of Mildin in Suffolk: wherein all his arguments for pedo-baptism are refuted and the necessity of immersion, i.e. dipping, is evidenced, and the people falsly called Anabaptists are. 2. Romans 14 does not say that Christians should go against their own conscience in order to accommodate believers who disagree.
