      I am wondering what is a good way to defend infant baptism when speaking to a Protestant. I remember getting into a discussion online with a few Protestants and all of them denied infant baptism. One of them told me that infant/child baptism was not practiced in the early Church even after I used biblical evidence stating it was. I guess the concept of not baptizing an infant is .   If you were to Google the references to infant baptism in the New Testament, you would perhaps be disappointed, maybe even a little shocked. Though Jesus took children in his hands and “blessed” them (Matthew ), and though there are several New Testament references to “whole households” (Acts , Acts , 1 Corinthians ) being baptized—which one would assume . Infant Baptism is the practice of baptizing infant children of believing, Christian parents. In the Roman Catholic Church, infant baptism washes away original sin and is regenerative. In Reformed circles, infant baptism is not regenerative but covenantal and validated through the believing parent(s).

I speak at conferences with and to Baptists. I read books by Baptists (both the dead and the living). I love the Baptist brothers I know–near and far–who preach God’s word and minister faithfully in Christ’s church. I went to a Baptist church while in college.

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.

I have great respect for my Baptist brothers in the Christian faith, especially those such as John Gill and Charles Spurgeon who have enriched the Reformed tradition so profoundly.

However, I have heard some Baptists criticize the practice of paedobaptism (that is, infant baptism, named 'Christening' by many Anglicans) by calling it a man-made tradition.

Gale and others. The Three Best Books in Defense of Believer's Baptism Note: Since I first wrote this post another excellent book has been published on the subject.

It is The Fatal Flaw of the Theology Behind Infant Baptism by Jeffrey D. Johnson. There is no scriptural description of infant baptism or the need for infants to be baptized, period. The best argument for infant baptism is in history, but please stop warping the scriptures to make it possible for what you think to be found there.

I never leave comments on discussion boards, but that reference to John was inexcusable. The baptism of an infant may leave no marks that Satan must recognize as evidence that God preempted that soul, but whenever parents supplement baptism with further obedience to God’s other requirements for the care of children, fulfilling their part of the covenant, God “is faithful that promised” (Heb.

), and Satan fails. This book is based on two sermons preached by Miller in the 's. He expanded the material into 4 sermons for publication. The first two sermons deal with the Scriptural basis for infant baptism: the first sermon is a defense of it biblically; the second is a response to objections/5(7).

Moreover, the Book of Acts is clear that entire households were baptized, which must have included children (Acts ). While direct evidence for infant baptism is quite sparse in the first century, it is clearly practiced in the second, which is difficult to explain had it not been practiced in the early years of the church.

And it seems to me to be a fundamental misunderstanding about how to read the Bible. In his book, Children of the Promise: The Biblical Case for Infant Baptism, Randy Booth says the New Testament did not replace the Old Testament. His practice of infant baptism hinges on his belief that the New Testament simply flows out of the Old Testament.

In Defense of Infant Baptism Febru by JSB. Acts New American Standard Bible (NASB) 38 Peter said to them, “Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

John Gill's book intitled The divine right of infant-baptism examined and disproved, and in vindication of the late Mr. Jonathan Dickinson's Brief illustration and confirmation of the divine right of infant-baptism. Jeremias does not offer a defence of infant baptism but offers up the evidence.

This is not a theology book but a history book that examines evidence for a practice. To begin with, it should be made clear that the dispute over infant baptism (paedobaptism) and believer's baptism (or credobaptism) is an internal Protestant dispute. This is supported by Acts 22;16, that infant Baptism washes away original sin.

And thus if infants are removed from sin, in their innocence they enter a state of salvation. Anglo-Catholics believe infant baptism washes away all original sin, and saves the infants. Christ Calls All to Baptism.

Opposition to infant 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.

Published: (). The Christian News is a weekly journal published by some nice (though misguided) folks associated with the Lutheran Church (Missouri Synod). A couple of years back (Jp. 22) the paper published the reproduction of an article by Lutheran clergyman Stephen C. Kurtzhan, titled: “Yes, we baptize our babies in the name of the Father, Son, Holy Spirit.”.

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.

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. You can purchase the book for $ at RBAP. A Problem with the Doctrine of Infant Baptism in the Westminster Standards.

INFANT BAPTISM (I. Samuel ) One thing I have learned in my ministry over the years is that there are many different reasons why people want to be baptized.
