Prerequisites Rule Out Infant Baptism

The Bible makes it clear there are some prerequisites to water baptism. First notice from the following passages that teaching/preaching to the candidate must come before baptism:

· Matthew 28:19: Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them …

· Mark 16:15-16: Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved …

The point being that an infant cannot be taught first. Therefore he is not a scriptural candidate for water baptism.

And regarding what the baptismal candidate himself must do, the following scriptures prove both belief and repentance must come before baptism:

· Mark 16:16: He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved …

· Acts 2:38: Repent and be baptized … for the remission of sins …

An infant cannot believe and repent first. Thus he is not a scriptural candidate for water baptism.

See how simple Bible facts rule out infant baptism?

    +Glory to Jesus Christ !

    All due respect Pat, but is a public dialogue on Christian belief of infant baptism not worthy of your response in the general public format?
