Wherefore, both the children of the Jews, because, when made heirs of that covenant, they were separated from the heathen, were called a holy seed, and for the same reason the children of Christians, or those who have only one believing parent, are called holy, and, by the testimony of the apostle, differ from the impure seed of idolaters. 7.

And, indeed, Christ was sanctified from earliest infancy, that he might sanctify his elect in himself at any age, without distinction. Under the appellation of “children” the difference they observe is this that the children of Abraham, under the old dispensation, were those who derived their origin from his seed, but that the appellation is now given to those who imitate his faith, and therefore that carnal infancy, which was ingrafted into the fellowship of the covenant by circumcision, typified the spiritual children of the new covenant, who are regenerated by the word of God to immortal life. And though, in adults, the receiving of the sign ought to follow the understanding of its meaning, yet, as will shortly be explained, a different rule must be followed with children. 13. Preface . Of Order, in which the … This chapter consists of two parts: I. This one reason, could no other be furnished, would be amply sufficient to refute all gainsayers. For by this he means not that he who is to be initiated by baptism must have previously been buried with Christ; he simply declares the doctrine which is taught by baptism, and that to those already baptised: so that the most senseless cannot maintain from this passage that it ought to precede baptism. II. 2 cap. He asserts that the spiritual reality itself (e.g., regeneration) may either precede or follow the external sacrament (i.e., 1 may precede 2, or 2 may precede 1). 30. Wherefore the apostle, to prove that the Gentiles, as well as the Jews, were the children of Abraham, speaks in this way: "Faith was reckoned to Abraham for righteousness. Because that which was said of a certain class of men, and a certain age, he wrests and applies to all indifferently. Analogy also suggests relationship; thus we are to study the particular doctrines of Scriptures in relation to the system of doctrine revealed therein. But in opposition to this is produced a passage from the Epistle to the Romans, in which the apostle says, that those who are of the flesh are not the children of Abraham, but that those only who are the children of promise are considered as the seed (Rom.

For this reason, though they were contumacious breakers of the covenant, he styles them holy (such respect does he pay to the holy generation which God had honoured with his sacred covenant), while we, in comparison of them, are termed posthumous, or abortive children of Abraham, and that not by nature, but by adoption, just as if a twig were broken from its own tree, and ingrafted on another stock. In this way, we shall condemn a divine institution. When the apostle says, that "Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers" (Rom. It is not the first time we have seen the minds of men wander to and fro when they substitute their dreams for the infallible word of God. Introduction . 4:4). Chapter 3. 12:26). Another argument of the Anabaptists considered. They allege that, by the usual phraseology of Scripture, "from the womb," has the same meaning as "from childhood." Certainly, if circumcision was a literal sign, the same view must be taken of baptism, since, in the second chapter to the Colossians, the apostle makes the one to be not a whit more spiritual than the other. But if we insist on discussing the difference between our Saviour’s act and baptism, in how much higher esteem shall we hold baptism (by which we testify that infants are included in the divine covenant), than the taking up, embracing, laying hands on children, and praying over them, acts by which Christ, when present, declares both that they are his, and are sanctified by him? How it not only profanes, but annihilates the … I trust I have made it apparent how feebly Servetus has supported his friends the Anabaptists. 22.

Its accordance with the institution of Christ, and the nature of the sign. For although this is not expressly narrated by the Evangelists, yet as they are not expressly excluded when mention is made of any baptised family (Acts 16:15, 32), what man of sense will argue from this that they were not baptised? But faith, they say, cometh by hearing, the use of which infants have not yet obtained, nor can they be fit to know God, being, as Moses declares, without the knowledge of good and evil (Deut.

And the time lapse between number 2 and numbers 1 and 3 could amount to an indefinite number of years, just as it ordinarily did in the case of circumcised infants in Old Testament times. 6. 14, 15. It is right that he who, in adult age, is admitted to the fellowship of a covenant by one from whom he had hitherto been alienated, should previously learn its conditions; but it is not so with the infant born to him.

The first class, with its consequences, refuted, sec. For when any one formerly joined the religious communion of Israel, he behoved to be taught the covenant, and instructed in the law of the Lord, before he received circumcision, because he was of a different nation; in other words, an alien from the people of Israel, with whom the covenant, which circumcision sanctioned, had been made. In asserting a difference of covenant, with what barbarian audacity do they corrupt and destroy Scripture? Error of those who adjudge all who die unbaptised to eternal destruction. Such is the value of the promise given to the posterity of Abraham – such the balance in which it is to be weighed. Argument that children are not fit to understand baptism, and, therefore, should not be baptised.

Some general principles with regard to the nature of vows. There is now no difficulty in seeing wherein the two signs agree, and wherein they differ. Answer. Here let him plead the matter with God, by whose command circumcision was common to infants before they received understanding. If this cannot be said without extreme insult to Christ, by whom the infinite goodness of the Father has been more brightly and benignly than ever shed upon the earth, and declared to men, it must be confessed that it cannot be more confined, and less clearly manifested, than under the obscure shadows of the law. II. Refutation of the arguments which the Anabaptists urge against paedobaptism, sec. He adds another allegory-- viz. His seventh argument is, Since spiritual things accord with spiritual (1 Cor 2:13), infants, not being spiritual, are unfit for baptism. At the same time, I meet him with the opposite argument. 24.

By assenting to their fiction, we should condemn all, without exception, whom any accident may have prevented from procuring baptism, how much soever they may have been endued with the faith by which Christ himself is possessed. This demonstrated from a consideration of the promises. But as I have no pleasure in sporting with allegory, I answer, that when the office of teaching was committed to the apostles, they were not prohibited from baptising infants. 9:19; 13:47.) For if they are to be accounted sons of Adam, they are left in death, since, in Adam, we can do nothing but die. by water and the Spirit; in other words, by the Spirit, who, in irrigating and cleansing the souls of believers, operates in the manner of water. 11. 16-18.

The Institutes of the Christian Religion by John Calvin. Every one must now see that pÊdobaptism, which receives such strong support from Scripture, is by no means of human invention. Chapter 16. Through the fall and revolt of Adam, the whole human race made accursed and degenerate of original sin. They cannot, at the very utmost, prove any other thing out of this passage, than that the gospel must be preached to those who are capable of hearing it before they are baptised; for of such only the passage speaks. The command of God to circumcise infants was either legitimate and exempt from cavil, or deserved reprehension. The consideration of the question necessary and useful. 10.
