Christian Baptism of INFANTS & CHILDREN is 100% BIBLICAL and SCRIPTURAL, and NO, it is NOT “Catholic”.
The blog titled “Heidelblog” (published by Westminster Theological Seminary in California, professor R. Scott Clark), is, LITERALLY, one of my TOP MOST FAVORITE blogs on the entire planet right now, as it is EXTREMELY HELPFUL to me, in helping me to RE-LEARN what REAL, TRUE, and most importantly, HISTORIC CHRISTIAN FAITH, actually is!
My comment (as I just now wrote him), on that blog:
Dr. Clark, i seriously LOVE reading your blog!!!!
i came out of being taught too many lies in the “Charismatic” and Pentecostal /
“non-denominational” movement. In that vein, we were always taught that baptism was only for those who had, of their own “free will”, self-decided to take faith upon themselves and believe, and thus only in full immersion, negating any so-doing for children or any kind of generational covenant promise as is clearly evidenced in scriptures since i just now read this posting. Sorry i have never read much of Calvin before so this was delightful news to me, and especially since, at my own home church, I just witnessed the baby baptism of one of our family’s children according to the PCA method or tradition (albeit in an RPCNA church, because the family is military and moves around a bit).
PRAISE GOD FOR YOU, for helping me unravel this horrible tangled mess in my head that i thought was the gospel, but was not. Only now am i un-learning all the crap i was taught and re-learning the truth i was never taught.
sigh. THANK YOU for this!! And just for being you.
Please take the time to read what the historical Church Reformer, JOHN CALVIN, had to say about this topic of “PAEDOBAPTISM” (baptism of infants and children) into the Christian church.
Calvin Addressed The Same Objections To Infant Baptism That We Hear Today
I was abused almost all of my life, and indeed i was almost murdered at only 4 years old. But this article basically addressed the less harsh aspects of my childhood abuse in the form of how we communicate with each other, via SARCASM — and it really hit home with me. Apparently, sarcasm is a SIN, and this article really explained how, and it makes a lot of sense to me.
i do not own a cell phone and will NEVER EVER own one (because MANY MANY reasons!!!!) nor do i use one… so this post is more for you, and not really for me.
As you’ve probably already heard, Facebook is getting a lot of bad press lately, for multiple reasons. Sometimes it seems we’re coming down too hard on Facebook, because to be honest, it’s been a great tool for connecting people worldwide, and also a great tool to share free and open information away from the influence…
