Apt surname for a professor who likes to quote twaddle.

â€śAll Protestants should easily agree that only Christâ€™s children have a right to the ordinance of infant baptismâ€¦. We say that it (the Church) should receive as the children of Christ â€” all whom in the judgment of charity it may fairly recognize as suchâ€¦.All baptism is inevitably administered on the basis not of knowledge but of presumptionâ€¦. If we must baptize on presumption, the whole principle is yieldedâ€¦. We must baptize all whom we may fairly presume to be Members of Christâ€™s bodyâ€¦. â€śSo soon, therefore, as it is fairly apprehended that we baptize on presumption and not on knowledge â€” it is inevitable that we shall baptize all those for whom we may, on any grounds, fairly cherish a good presumption that they belong to Godâ€™s peopleâ€¦. This surely includes the infant children of believers.â€ť (The Polemics of Infant Baptism)
What need of biblical authority when one can undermine the bible with such 'logic'?! But this is precisely why they need 'good and necessary consequence', because without it their system is sunk!
