Infant_Baptism: You and Your Household [P1]
I’m currently thinking through and mapping out the doctrine of Infant Baptism (IB). This series will allow me to slowly flesh out my thoughts and to see if there’s any objection and counter-arguments. If there are, I’ll be able to refine my thoughts and to think more deeply about this confusing topic. Let me start off by saying that I approach this topic on IB exegetically. I have listened to many discussions / debates and it’s clear to me that the only way to make IB works is by imposing OT’s paradigm onto the NT, with some assumptions because nowhere in the NT does it say infant are baptized. Here’s the gist: Circumcision was the sign of the OT covenant and Infants were circumcised. Likewise, Baptism is the sign of the NT covenant and infants are to be baptized.
