Great Sermon! Powerful. A far cry from the wimpy Christianity and wimpy praying today. I'd not heard of this praying until the recent past when I listened to a mini series Phil Johnson did on predatory prayers in God's Word.
Great Sermon! Having been born into a Catholic family naturally I was baptized as an neat. Today a a believer and outside the Catholic religion, I do not believe in Infant baptism. But I was wondering something as I listened to this message. If there any NT verses that support it, then I stand corrected. I just can't think of any. Is there any Scripture that supports or mandates immersion? How do we know that John the Baptist immersed, apart from Jesus coming up from the water and a dove (the Holy Spirit). lighting on Him. Are all the pictures of John immersing al those people just assumption?
I see your point. Your point is well taken. Particularly that is fosters a sense of "false" conversion for the one baptized as an infant and those surrounding him ie. parents and other church members. I believe you've change my position on infant baptism, not only that it's wrong but that it's consequences are far reaching and eroding for all parties involved. Thank you Pastor. Thank you Father, Son and Spirit for the Spirit of Adoption wouldn't exchange it for the Universe.
