Infant baptism is commonly practiced today by pouring or sprinkling, but there is no N.T. support for these practices and they corrupt the proper symbolism of the Scriptural ordinance. Further, infant baptism uses the wrong subject--infants unable to believe and be born again. The baptizo argument is interesting and is an ok component to have in a cumulative case for immersion. But placed against the great weight of the cumulative case for sprinkling and infant baptism, I just don't see that it holds up. It relies on applying a specifically secular usage to the term that isn't applied in every biblical passage where the term is used, and wasn't the way the Jews used.

Preface Having studied the Bible and writings of learned men for more than forty-five years on the subject contained in this little booklet, during which time I made a trip through Bible lands, I am thoroughly and clearly convinced that pouring or sprinkling water upon a person in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Ghost, is the proper mode of baptism, vindicated book and sprinkling.
Infant Baptism and Sprinkling, History of Purification and consecration are two important concepts in Christianity that reveals the type of relationship and expectations that God has toward his followers. Baptisms began with John the Baptist in the Bible.
certainly implies immersion is pouring or sprinkling does not require going down into a river. As far as the book of Acts, it seems that Luke assumed his writers knew the normal mode of baptism, as he does not normally specify where the baptism took place.
The exception is the Ethiopian eunuch in Acts eight who, along with Phillip, stopped, got out. Biblically speaking, baptism is an act of being placed completely underwater.
Baptism symbolizes the burial of the old carnal and sinful self. You can’t bury a body just by mere sprinkling or pouring some water on it. Please read the clear symbolism of baptism in Romans. HOW SPRINKLING OR POURING REPLACED SCRIPTURAL BAPTISM. A.D. The first case of a substitute for baptism known to us, is that of Novatian in the year A.D.
Mosheim, in his Historical Commentaries, p, vol.1, gives us the history of the baptism of Novatian. He says, “He was seized with a threatening disease and was baptized in his bed, when apparently about to die.
We can now see that the United Methodist Church deviates from Scriptural baptism in three ways: (1) It believes in sprinkling rather than baptism (baptism means immersion in the Greek); (2) It believes in infant or baby baptism rather than a baptism of responsible persons; (3) It teaches that baptism is effective for a person who is incapable.
We believe that sprinkling, pouring or immersion is baptism, according to the way the word is used in the New Testament. In our argument that is given of course we will be putting the major emphasis on baptism by affusion (sprinkling or pouring), for this is the point at. As I understand the Book of Church order for the PCA, for those individuals desiring to join the church as a communing member, the church recognizes immersion of an individual as long as it was done under certain conditions (I won't go into these, since they are not relevant to the discussion), otherwise as a practice, the PCA baptizes via sprinkling or pouring, whether it is of an individual.
An infant cannot understand what water baptism symbolizes. The Bible does not record any infants being baptized. Infant baptism is the origin of the sprinkling and pouring methods of baptism - as it is unwise and unsafe to immerse an infant under water.
Even the method of infant baptism fails to agree with the Bible. Greetings in Christ. I was perusing through a protestant pamphlet that was covering basic Christian beliefs (biased, I’m afraid, on their behalf) and came across the subject of Baptism.
It insisted on baptism by immersion, citing certain scripture to back up the statement. It did not condone infant baptism or sprinkling. The subject brought to mind many discussions that I’ve had with other. It is not difficult to trace the evolution of sprinkling and infant baptism to the present from these sources.
As belief in the essentiality of baptism subsided and the presence of "original sin" on the souls of infants has been played down, most mainline Protestant groups have instituted the infant baptism ceremony as a "dedication service.
If the Scriptures tell us that the Spirit is poured upon us and we are baptized with the Spirit, then it makes sense to say that baptism here means pouring upon. Pour upon with the Holy Spirit Isaiah"I will pour out My Spirit on your offspring, and My blessing on your descendants.".
Baptism by sprinkling or pouring - A Catholic look, preparation, and finally, without cost, a man is baptized in water, and amid the utterance of some few words, is sprinkled, and then rises again, not much (or not at all) the cleaner" (On Baptism 2; A.D.
These and other questions are explored in this thought-provoking historic views on baptism are considered in depth:• Baptism of the professing regenerate by immersion (Baptist)• Believers’ baptism on the occasion of regeneration by immersion (Christian Churches/Churches of Christ)• Infant baptism by sprinkling as a regenerative act (Lutheran)• Infant baptism of children of the covenant Reviews: A final objection to infant baptism is that it is almost always done by sprinkling or pouring, not by immersion.
But the Bible says that baptism is a burial (Rom. ; Col. A person must go down into the water and come up out of it (Acts ,39; Mark ,10). The emphasis is not on dipping or immersing (or on sprinkling or pouring), but on the process of identifying the one baptized with a cleansing provided by God himself.
This is why the Westminster Confession of Faith () correctly states that “dipping of the person into the water is not necessary; but baptism is rightly administered by pouring, or sprinkling water upon the person.”.
In the Roman Catholic Church, most believers are baptized by pouring (also known as infusion). At the same time, Catholics know that immersion (also known as dunking) and sprinkling are valid ways of baptizing.
Some Protestant and Evangelical Churches reject all form of baptism other than immersion. The claim that the discoveries within the Roman catacombs provide evidence for the practice of sprinkling or pouring, as a form of “baptism,” is borne more of desire than evidence.
The distinguished R.C. Foster has summed up the matter poignantly. “The catacomb evidence has been the subject of. (History of Infant Baptism, Vol. II., p. And in another place he remarks: "And for sprinkling, properly called, it seems that it was in just then beginning, and used by very few.
It must have begun in the disorderly times of " (History of Infant Baptism, Vol. II., p. Now is. These two Old Testament â€œbaptismsâ€ [1 Cor ; 1 Pet ] are but a couple of illustrations of baptism by sprinkling or pouring, not immersion.
The Israelites were rained on or sprinkled during their Red Sea crossing, while the Egyptians were â€œimmersedâ€ in the sea.
Catholics don't baptize by sprinkling water, we pour it over the baptized's head, if there's just a font. If you read Actsyou probably think baptism by immersion if that how baptism happens in your tradition, but if baptism is usually performed by pouring, then this is what your minds eye produces: Philip baptizing a eunuch by Abel de Pujol.So taabal is the Biblical Hebrew word associated with painting and pouring and sprinkling.
In the ( B.C.) Greek Septuagint, this word was often translated baptein and baptizein. These translations enable us rightly to understand the ancient meaning of an important derivative from taabal -- the noun tebiylah.The practice of “infant baptism” is not authorized by the New Testament.
It is a most dangerous custom for it raises a sense of false security in those whose parents impose it upon them. Salvation is a matter of personal obedience (Hebrews ); it is not a blessing that .
