Religious Publication

Introduction: This essay is intended to set forth a biblical and coherent case for infant baptism, beginning with an understanding of roots in the Old Testament practice of circumcision and its parallels with a theology of baptism. This issue is not an issue for which proof-texts can be cited and then the issue decided. In many ways, the debate rests on (1) the matter of burden of proof and (2) which underlying theology best explains all Biblical passages. It will be argued that the theology behind infant baptism best expresses the Biblical passages that address the subject. Furthermore, it will be argued that the issue of oeburden of proof ought to rest on those who would seek to overturn the structures of the Old Covenant. It is my opinion that there is enough evidence in the New Testament for the Church to practice infant baptism.
