The Cordial Catholic Podcast – 044: The Catholic Case for Infant Baptism

The Cordial Catholic Podcast – 044: The Catholic Case for Infant Baptism January 29, 2020

In this episode of The Cordial Catholic Podcast, I’m joined by apologist, speaker, and author Dr. Douglas Beaumont to discuss the topic of infant baptism.

Why do Catholics baptize infants? Why do some Protestant denominations object to this practice? What is the biblical basis and what about tradition?

In his trademark straight forward approach Dr. Beaumont walks us through what Catholics believe baptism does, how this is often misunderstood by non-Catholic Christians, and how the Bible doesn’t give us clear answers–and where we need to turn next to inform our theology.

It’s a fantastic interview full of the kind of insights we’ve come to expect from Dr. Beaumont! You will definitely learn something new.
