We’ll be taking off today to travel to Ft.Wayne for our new grand-daughter Elizabeth’s baptism. In honor of the occasion, I post here a link toLuther’s Sermon on Infant Baptism, wherein he shows that babies too can have faith in Jesus Christ, which is never the same as mere head knowledge that adults sometimes assume but a gift of God; that in baptism a child is brought to Christ and Christ comes to the child; and that infant baptism is thus a believer’s baptism (in the sense that the baptized child believes in Christ).
