We were talking about infant baptism, and I learned that the husband had come to faith in a Baptist church and had then come to believe that infant baptism was biblical while he was studying at Western Conservative Baptist Seminary. I asked him what had changed his mind, and he mentioned especially coming to see that circumcision in the Old.   So the book tackles the question that the title asks. It looks at the history of baptism in the church, and at the Biblical basis for this practice. The author David Wright argues for a mixed practice. Baptizing infants and adults as the occasion arises. I think the book asks the wrong question, and misplaces s: 3.

  An infant cannot make a conscious decision to obey Christ. An infant cannot understand what water baptism symbolizes. The Bible does not record any infants being baptized. Infant baptism is the origin of the sprinkling and pouring methods of baptism - as it is unwise and unsafe to immerse an infant under water. Even the method of infant baptism. After seriously studying the issue under the guidance of their pastor and especially reading the infant Baptism defense in The Book of Concord, they changed their minds and had their three children baptized. The father explained his change of mind by saying, "We thought we were saved by faith through grace rather than by grace through faith.

Infant baptism did not become routine until the fifth and sixth centuries. Keep learning.

The Anabaptists, however, who lived out a powerful restoration of the apostolic faith in the 16th century, rejected it. I believe the Biblical evidence is questionable, but that the historical evidence testifies pretty clearly against infant baptism.

Opposition to or baptism is not a new phenomenon. In the Middle Ages, some groups developed that rejected infant baptism, e.g., the Waldenses and Catharists.

Later, the Anabaptists (“re-baptizers”) echoed them, claiming that infants are incapable of being baptized validly. If the opponent of infant baptism could point to one case of an adult baptism in the New Testament where the person who is being baptized as an adult was the child of Christian parents when that person was an infant, then they would have a relevant case to point to, in fact that would be all it would take to change me on that.

Since an infant cannot give a testimony, a genuine infant baptism is an impossibility. However, the Bible nowhere portrays baptism as the testimony of the person baptized.

Passages that link faith to baptism (such as Acts ; ) simply show that faith, publicly professed, is a necessary condition for baptism. So any attempt to argue for infant baptism from these passages is an argument from silence. Second, the people in these households who were baptized, listened to the word being preached (Acts ), spoke in tongues and praised God (Acts ), repented of their sins (Acts ), and rejoiced after their baptisms (Acts ).

Baptism, one of the Seven Sacraments of the Christian Church, frequently called the “first sacrament”, the “door of the sacraments”, and the “door of the Church“. AUTHORITATIVE STATEMENT OF DOCTRINE. At the outset we think it advisable to give two documents which express clearly the mind of the Church on the subject of baptism.

They are valuable, also, as containing a summary. As I said above, the adult baptism of converts was the most attested practice, but there is still ample evidence that infant baptism was occurring and no one, I repeat, no one was arguing against it.

4) The reason why many Christians in the early church delayed their baptism was due to a faulty baptismal theology and a faulty soteriology. Hi Matthew, Clearly we see infant baptism in the Scriptures~ Act And Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

39 For the promise is for you and for your CHILDREN and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself.”. This idea is assailed by Infant Baptism, and the universal triumph of that doctrine would be the introduction of all classes of persons within the ranks of some external church.

The truth of this statement is abundantly proved by the condition of the Lutheran Church in Germany, and that of the Established Church of England.

sity of infant baptism. 13 From the tenth to the thirteenth century, Neo-Manicheans objected to the practice of infant baptism on the basis of the infant's incapacity to believe.

They insisted on a literal interpretation of Mark: "He who believes and is baptized will be saved; he who does not believe will be condemned" (Mk ).

This passage (Acts ) has been used many times by those who believe in infant baptism. They do so because, arguably, this is the only passage which at least has the appearance of possibly showing infants were baptized in the New Testament.

The problem is that this passage definitely does not say that infants were baptized. One of the strange paradoxes in the church is that the world is full of baptized non-Christians, millions of them, all over the planet, baptized non-Christians, while at the same time, the church is.

Ambler. The baptism of an infant pictures the helplessness of man and his desperate need for God. It is a testimony to all that are watching that it is only by the act of God that that child will be saved. It is a testimony to all that are watching that it is only by the act of God that that child will be saved.

The divisions over baptism become most evident when discussing the proper recipients of the sacrament. Most American evangelicals only baptize those who have verbally professed faith.

Yet many Christians follow the majority practice of church history and administer the ordinance to adults and their infant. Baptism of households. In Acts 16 we read two times that entire households were baptized: the household of Lydia (Acts ) and the household of the jailer (Acts ).

It is very likely there were children in these households, and if that is the case the text seems to indicate that they were baptized. Baptism is received. Yet letters written in the first few centuries of Christian history clearly say that infant baptism was practiced in the church—and very early on.

Letters from second- and third-generation church leaders of the apostles of Jesus mention infant baptism being practiced in the church of their day and even before.
