Excellent Interview on Baptism (Infant vs. Believers)

Dr. Stephen Wellum (prof. of theology at SBTS) was recently interviewed by Justin Taylor. The interview is excellent, covering the broader issues that separate those Christians who practice infant baptism and those that practice believer’s baptism.

In the course of the article, Wellum covers quite a bit of theological ground, providing thoughts on the ‘covenant of grace’ and hermeneutics. He provides what I think is a fair critique of some reformed thinkers who tend to ‘flatten’ the various covenants into one.

Some of the people commenting on the interview ask some fair questions, but others I fear missed some of his points and carry out old arguments that do not hold much weight. Others failed to correctly grasp Wellum’s defining of certain terms.

A more in-depth discussion of these issues can be found in the book Believer’s Baptism: Sign of the New Covenant in Christ. Check out the article, and if it whets your appetite, pick up the book.

    My prayer request: Please pray for Ms Mamta.that the lord would protect, deliver her from the situation in which she is in. The person with whom she is forcibly getting married by her mother. She does not want to marry him. She is all alone by herself cause no one is standing by her side. She is terribly disturbed , worried ,in fear, helpless and broken from within. The person with whom she said that she would marry some years ago is controlling her. Right now she is not even engaged or married to him. He has beaten her on the road and in the commercial area and the mother is just blind to all this. She wanted to marry a man of God but maybe its not Gods will for her to marry him. But at least pray for her deliverance, protection from this person of whom she is very afraid. She is afraid of her mother too.Pray that all may come to an agreement and get us married.
