Baptism is taught in the Bible and has been practiced for centuries, but understanding of its meaning and respect for its importance is at a low ebb today. Confusion reigns over questions about its mode and its place in the life of the Christian, and as a result, even many evangelical congregations are downplaying its significance. This is not the way it should be, Dr. R. C. Sproul declares in this Crucial Questions booklet. Baptism, he affirms, is one of the two sacraments of the Christian church, a sign and seal of the covenant of grace. Therefore, it is a necessary and meaningful practice that is packed with rich symbolism. In this booklet, Dr. Sproul provides help in understanding and appreciating this practice of the church.
What is Baptism?
I was raised to believe in "believer's baptism" and had never really studied "the case infant baptism" as set for by R.C. Sproul.
Knowing the scriptures a little better than in my earlier years as a Christian, I have found the case for infant baptism a bit more enlightening as a sacrament relating to the faith community vs just a issue of personal faith.
While I'm not abandoning by "believer's baptism" just yet, there is a lot to ponder at looking at infant baptism as a visible identity with the faith community.
Thanks, R.C. for your charitable presentation of this subject.
