A real sloppy show this time, but hey! You got a show!
In the last show, Adam tackled the question of what happens in baptism. Using Scripture and Church history, we saw that there is a consensus that there is real activity on God’s part in baptism–something more is happening than just a human step of obedience. However else we define that, we need to begin there.
And on today’s show, we examine, albeit not in great detail, the Reformed answer to the question For whom is baptism? A minor presentation of the defense of infant baptism, this episode will hopefully draw thinking Christians together, rather than to cast apart. Adam maintains that the Bible may be interpreted either toward a credo or a paedo view of baptism; both are strong in Scripture depending on other hermeneutical assumptions. At the very least, we seek to offer the doctrine of baptism as a hope to a dying world. Baptism includes people in the Church of Christ Jesus, where He does His saving work, and so to offer it to a dying world, indeed to a dying Western civilization, is a step in the right direction.
Let’s talk biblical baptism!
Grace to all who love our Lord Jesus Christ in truth.
