A while back, my friend Carrie posted some questions about infant baptism. I am the daughter of a PCA pastor. My dad grew up baptist and went to Master's Seminary headed up by John MacArthur which teaches believers baptism. It's a long story how he came to be a PCA pastor but I think you might find a recent teaching of his on infant baptism interesting. I have to admit I've never really understood it before now. I h aven't had my girls baptized and it's never been an issue between us but I was challenged by his Wednesday night service on April 9th. Now I don't know what to think at this point but I found it interesting and thought you might too. This isn't an attempt to get you to concur (I'm not sure I do) but just to help you understand why they do it. I think that's where we may have been misled. We haven't properly understood the "why". For some reason I couldn't get it directly in this post but you can click HERE and then look for 04/09/2008 Pastor Roy Carter, Sacrement of Baptism, Wednesday Night. Let me know if you have any thoughts you want to share.
