  • Not in Scripture, 2 Tim. 316 2 Pet. 13

8
Not in New Testament
  • There is no express precept or rule given in the
    New Testament for the baptism of infants.
    (Bishop Burnet, Anglican)
  • Among all the persons that are recorded as
    baptized by the apostles, there is no express
    mention of any infant. There is no express
    mention of any children baptized by them.
    (Wall, History of Infant Baptism)

9
Not in New Testament
  • It can not be proved by the sacred Scriptures
    that infant baptism was instituted by Christ, or
    begun by the first Christians after the
    apostles.

  • cited in Gospel Plan of Salvation, Brents, 315

  • Children have no sin, Matt. 183, 1914

11
Why do people baptize babies?
  • Hereditary Depravity
  • As for infant Baptism, we hold that children
    should be baptized, for they, too, are included
    in the promise of redemption which Christ made
  • (The Smalcald Articles, THE BOOK OF CONCORD, 311)

12
Why do people baptize babies?
  • Dedicate / Enter Church
  • The pastor of the church shallfurnish the
    parents or guardians of the child who is baptized
    with a certificate of Baptism, which shall also
    clearly state that the child is now enrolled as a
    preparatory member of The United Methodist
    Church.
  • (Methodist Discipline, par. 222, p. 116)

Water baptism is not for Christians (already
saved)
14
Why Some Baptize the Saved
  • Baptism is to be administered to those, and to
    those only, who have exercised and professed a
    saving faith in Christ
  • (Hiscox Guide for Baptist Churches, 86)
  • Mark 1616 Acts 2216

15
Why Some Baptize the Saved
  • The spiritual change of the new birth
    constitutes Christian fellowship but to secure
    church fellowship, that change must be confessed
    in baptism.
  • (Hiscox Guide for Baptist Churches, 39)
  • John 35 Gal. 327 Titus 34-6

16
Why Some Baptize the Saved
  • Baptism may not be essential to salvation, but
    it is essential to obedience.
  • (Hiscox Guide for Baptist Churches, 87)
  • Acts 1048 Hebrews 59

17
Baptism is

    of their sins, Acts 188
