Baby Belief before Baptism

By Lee, Francis Nigel, Rev., Dr.

Description
Religion and Christian Theology Collection

Excerpt
Excerpt: On perusing this treatise, one is once again impressed by the humble and unquestioning acceptance of the Word of God by the author. Yet he does not succumb to the fallacy of Biblicism. For he never pretends to have been the first to prove the real sense and significance of biblical truth. Professor Lee merely seeks to follow in the steps of the Master and of many predecessors who have been instructed by the Doctor ecclesiae. Standing on their shoulders and thoroughly conversant with the recognized confessions of faith, he could envisage divine revelation in a meticulous and lucid manner. According to him - and rightly so - the covenant of grace is the mainstay of infant baptism. The flaw that vitiates adult baptism even within the covenant of grace, is the urge of depraved man to contribute meritoriously to the act of grace. This is indeed tantamount to detracting from grace.
