the reformers spent generations working through these things, is it really that easy? I have no animosity towards our presbytarian friend here, in fact, I'm thankful he's brought out some legitimate concerns as to the pietism so prevalent today. (separating the disciplines from the public life witness)
Glad to see the comments as well that reflect many are studying the Word themselves.
I feel the same way that's why I have told Erik many times that I don't mind Presbyterians and have gone to Presbyterian Churches. But what I've seen from many Presbyterians is not this same acceptance and I see some scorn in some I have talked to. Not sure where Erik spoke out against 'pietism' though. God bless Sister Penned.

Hey James thanks for the verses. Hope all has been well with you brother. God bless. Always good to look at the Bible through the lens of the NT and let scripture interpret scripture and give emphasis on apostolic commentary on OT scripture/types and pictures. Word searches are great as you pointed out!

Hey everyone I hate to see you guys not getting along. Many times I have wanted to comment and talk to certain people but when two parties are divided I try not to talk to either side so that I can stay as neutral as possible. I see you all as my brothers and sisters. I'm sorry if I ever treat anybody harshly. I feel I get along with everyone pretty well, well there's always that one but even him I try and be kind to though he doesn't deserve it but then again I'm not deserving of what Christ has done for me/forgave me.

Hey June I would enjoy some comments about things that the Catholic Church does and then a bible verse that speaks out against their actions. That would in my mind be very beneficial and be even more exposing of evil than anything else is as transgressing God's word is horrible.

God bless everyone.

Hey James great comments.

Lurker you helped me on Romans 6 when it used the word 'likeness' I think I had been misunderstanding what that word meant in the context. I think I understand the meaning better now.

Ladybug great conclusion. If we all just stuck to the clear meaning of what the scripture says there wouldn't be all this division. It's strange how a group can claim 'Sola Scriptura' yet can't back what they do by scripture alone as we have seen many times.

Kev, use what word you will, God has only one Church:
II. One Church: The Church of the OT and NT is one Church; God has one people with two administrations.
In the above you are absolutely right and the Church is the body of Christ and an unbelieving child is not part of this 'Church'.

It's really very simple.

Going to sleep you have a goodnight Erik.

Maybe reread these comments as it all seems fairly clear.

Hold fast the pattern of sound words which you have heard from me, in faith and love which are in Christ Jesus.

Yeah we get used to the way the word 'Church' gets used nowadays, kind of like Erik uses the word. I understand why you said what you said when Erik brought up the word

Did Rodney tell you about my idea to put vegemite into pepper spray cans? We would have to put on a disclaimer 'may attract Australians' but it sure would work good on everyone else God bless mate.

Erik your child is no more called out to the Lord than a child in an unbelievers house. Salvation is of the Lord and He will have mercy on who He will have mercy. Your works of the flesh give your child no 'in' with God Jacob I loved Esau I hated remember. The Jews had made the same mistake as you have and thought works of the flesh accounted for something other then being obedient in that one aspect and that one aspect is no longer commanded. If you depend on what you do for a place with God you have frustrated the Grace of God and have turned it into a 'work'. All the New Testament actually speaks out about this kind of practice. How is baptism a picture of the new covenant?

They both are the sign and seal of the righteousness of faith... OT and NT church...the same- the people of God. The fact that the Gentiles are brought in doesn't change the essence of the Church.
Can you tell me where an infant fits into this definition that you gave?

Or the word translated 'Church'?:

1577 ekklēsía(from 1537 /ek, "out from and to" and 2564 /kaléō, "to call") – properly, people called out from the world and to God, the outcome being the Church (the mystical body of Christ) – i.e. the universal (total) body of believers whom God calls out from the world and into His eternal kingdom.

Quote:
We see the word church used three different ways: First, as the body of Christ, the church is often defined as a local assembly or group of BELIEVERS (1 Corinthians 1:2; 2 Corinthians 1:1; Galatians 1:1-2). Second, it is defined as the body of individual living BELIEVERS (1 Corinthians 15:9; Galatians 1:13). Finally, it is defined as the universal group of all people who have TRUSTED Christ through the ages (Matthew 16:18; Ephesians 5:23-27).

Hey Dave the word 'church' in the Bible can mean the 'called out body of Christ' I found this out not too long ago.

To answer one question: I don't have to show PB in the NT. Church membership belonged to infants in the OT and therefore they are members in the NT. UNLESS you (baptists) can show me where God took children out of the Church. Really? did God (in his better covenant) take my children out of the Church? God Forbid!!!
Even with this logic you show me where the OT 'Church' and the New Testament 'Church' have the same members. The OT didn't include Gentiles so obviously the dynamic has changed.

The word 'Church' means the called out ones or belonging to the Lord the only ones that 'belong' to the Lord are the 'called out ones'. Your very use of the word church is why the early translators like Tynsdale did not want to translate the word to Church but to transliterate the word. Even the true meaning of the word 'Church' points to the new birth, which is the only way someone is in covenant with God in the NT.

As you can see, this word doesn't even resemble the Greek word "ecclesia" whose place it has usurped. The meaning of "ku-ri-á-kos" is understood by its root: "kú-ri-os," which means "lord." Thus, "kuriakos" (i.e., "church") means "pertaining to the lord." It refers to something that pertains to, or belongs to, a lord.

This conversation is getting pretty complicated. Let me go back to the basis of my point from the beginning. I asked to be shown from scripture where a infant was ever baptized or commanded to be baptized.

You asked me to show you where from scripture where I give merit to things I do. I have shown you in a linear straight forward reason why I do everything that I do. You have confused everything with talk of; positive, negative, Arian etc..

Just show me where an infant is baptized or implied to be baptized. If you can't it's not scriptural. It is an assertion. I have given you passages for believers baptism and you have shown none for infant baptism. Let's try and stay on point here.

Believers baptism has been shown scripturally and infant baptism has not. You can go off with your (Arian) non linear, looking AT one passage approach to thinking and it will just go in circles. Like US pointed out it was written to the Church which included females and the text I brought up speaks to all whom Christ died which I showed in a common sense matter.

Complicating things like you do is why we have beliefs like the JW have. I can give a case why there is no hell if we want to not look at the scripture as a whole or have non linear thinking or isolate a passage.

John UK wrote:
There is no doubt in my mind whatever, that some believers will have children who are not elect, as is evidenced in the Bible.
Effectively, you are taking election out of God's hand, and claiming it for yourself, simply by propagating. This is similar to those who claim you can get a new birth by doing certain things.
Hey John how have you been?

Also the old covenant was made to a people group though there were some who never entered in and the new covenant puts emphasis on the new birth and believing in Christ.

Works of the flesh i.e. Circumcision was expressly spoken against in the New Testament:

Galatians 5:2-3

2 Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing.

3 For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law.

The Jews made the mistake of thinking that outward things like circumcision would show there place with God kind of on the same line of thinking as Presbyterians and their children.

The new covenant puts emphasis on to be born again and all apostolic commentary shows baptism as a sign of this.

If they were gonna apply the when and to who consistently from the OT no females and time periods should be consistent.

Romans is great it gives clear commentary on such thing as baptism election etc... I'll highlight the parts to pay special attention to.

Romans 6

2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?

3 Know ye not, THAT AS MANY of us as were BAPTIZED into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?

4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also SHOULD WALK IN NEWNESS OF LIFE.

5 For if we have been planted together in the LIKENESS OF HIS DEATH, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:

6 Knowing this, that our OLD MAN IS CRUCIFIED WITH HIM, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.

As you can see this is all can only apply to believers baptism.

Psalm 150

3 Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp.

4 Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs.

None of the above says it has to be all at once especially since the use of stringed instruments, there is all types of stringed instruments and is not specific, this is a list to show the types of instruments to worship God.

This is linear thinking.

I never said that something has to be shown from NT scripture lumping all baptists is like lumping all Presbyterians together. I do however say that if a clear mandate is given then we follow the clear mandate kind of like the NT dietary laws.

Don't have time now on vacation, maybe if you are kind to others you can have a good conversation with them about these issues.

I'll try and check back but I'm a little busy. You have a goodnight.

Notice who is commanded to partake in the Lord's Supper, I will capitalize it.
Luke 22:19-21
19 And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is GIVEN FOR YOU: this do in remembrance of me.
20 Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is SHED FOR YOU.
We see the Lord's Supper is commanded for those to whom Christ died unless you don't think Christ shed His blood for women?

It was not my intention to compare the the Lords table with the Passover I was questioning your reasoning to see if it was consistent according to your reasoning. I gave my reason above awhile back for women and the the Lords table.

Thanks Kev, most of them were fairly easy to answer, but I wasn't quite sure if Erik meant denominations, or congregations under the same umbrella, like Baptist, etc. Thanks for looking up some specific passages.
Yeah wasn't quite sure either, I figured he must of meant like minded groups as I'm sure he wouldn't think fellowship with some of the liberal Presbyterian groups would be good for even his church. It is kind of vague.

But I'm going on vacation and I'm not sure when I'll have some down time or cell signal. You guys take care and God bless.

Eric if your still around I'll talk to in about a week or maybe less if I can. Stay tuned I'm sure if you keep posting we will find some things we see eye to eye on. As I said before I don't mind Presbyterians I've gone to a few Presbyterian Churches in the past, at least the ones that don't mind baptists

Proverbs 18:17

17 He that is first in his own cause seemeth just; but his neighbour cometh and searcheth him.

It's good to always look at our presuppositions from both sides openly. I've listened to a few sermons for infant baptism from pastors I liked before I made up my mind.

Take care everyone, even you Steve, just try and get along Steve

Hello everyone, thank you for your questions and listening to me... I would ask you to use the same stringent, scriptural arguments that you demand from Paedo-Baptist.
1. Women taking the Lord's Supper.
2. Liberty of conscience with regard to worship. Seems to be a violation of the second commandment.
3. Observance of Christmas
4. Observance of Easter
5. Organs or other instruments in worship
6. The use of man invented hymns
7. One congregation can be totally autonomous from other congregations.
1. I showed this earlier.

2. Never said this as the Lord must be worshiped in Spirit and truth, I'm sure you know the verse.

3. Don't celebrate this like the world.

4. Same as above.

5. Psalm 150:4King James Version (KJV)

4 Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and ORGANS.

6. Psalm 104:33King James Version (KJV)

33 I will sing unto the Lord as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.

Notice above it doesn't say exclusively from the Psalms

7. My congregation is linked with many like minded congregations throughout the world.

Same stringent biblical principles as I apply to believers baptism.

Hey I don't hold it against you it's fine I was just letting you know I tried to make sure I treated you fine. I enjoy having discussion on the Bible, when it's done FRIENDLY.

Saying I go off on 'rabbit trails' is not very heart warming and I only used that expression after you said that to me, so you can see what it feels like.

Well I've posed this question before,without response.
Before being saved I had a yin and yan tattooed on my chest. That's a pagan religious symbol.
Should I have it removed I wonder
This is not an official answer or anything but in my opinion you should do whatever you do by faith and if you feel you should get rid of it than you should if you feel it is fine in my opinion I think it is fine.

This is the closest verses to that situation that I can think of.

1 Corinthians 7:18-19

18 Is any man called being circumcised? let him not become uncircumcised. Is any called in uncircumcision? let him not be circumcised.

19 Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but the keeping of the commandments of God.

This is only my opinion.

Deny Freedom of speech and scorn you please show where I did that or else you just did that to me!

I was telling you my opinion and never said anything rude or anything and now you have scorned me.

Please show me where I scorned you or was rude to you or your just bearing false witness against me.

Don't worry I don't mind and I would rather not argue with you God bless.

Even when I used a verse that includes a Pharisee I said I wasn't calling you a Pharisee!

Erik Casey wrote:
Passover was observed yearly. Reformers do it 4 times a year. The amount of time done in the year is an "accident" not essential.
The point I'm making if you take from the OT when something is to be done without scripture to do so I.e baptize infants because circumcision in the OT was done as a baby, wouldn't it be proper to also carry that same hermeneutic deciding when something is done i.e. The Passover and do it once a year on the day of Passover. You mentioned accident does that mean you feel it is error to have the Lord's table multiple times a year?

If you apply a hermeneutic without scripture wouldn't it be a consistent hermeneutic to apply to all similar events.

The thing is there is no consistent hermeneutic in Presbyterian interpretation and no bible verses to back it up. They have essentially decided to make link some things and not others. You have also decided to baptize females as well when women weren't circumcised I don't know how you make the connections.

I also didn't understand how you made the connection between baptist doctrine and a quote from a baptist on government. What I'm saying is it might make sense to you but I'm not seeing it.

US I don't equate the Lord Supper a Passover either.

Hey Observer haven't seen you post in awhile, yeah these black lives matter people are full of inconsistencies. If they cared so much about black lives then why not protest black on black crime which kills far more black people or better yet how about abortion. In reality it is a group that seems to be racist in their protests and their protest I believe have killed more black lives than they have saved. They seem to have turned many people against the police causing more police shootings.

The liberals are being given over to a reprobate mind there are many times they seem unable to even reason correctly.

Take care Brother and God bless.
