A Stir in the Waters

  • By Mark A. Kramer
Have you ever wondered why many committed Bible-believing Christians baptize their young children? Have you ever examined the Scriptures which are used to defend the practice? Mark Kramer, a layman in the Presbyterian Church in America, has researched this topic for over three decades. In this thorough study, he followed the example of the Berean Christians by taking the Reformed Infant Baptism teachings and examined the Scriptures "to see if these things are so" (Acts 17:11). Utilizing extended quotes from top Reformed theologians, he raised and answered many challenging questions, including: How many Abrahamic covenants are there? How was circumcision a pre-Moses Mosaic law? Do circumcision and baptism signify the same things? Did Jesus teach a principle of Family Solidarity? Why were entire households really baptized? What does the Jerusalem Counsel have to say on this issue in Acts 15? Many have heard the implied reasoning for baptizing children. Time to read what the Bible teaches for yourself. Mark Kramer earned a degree in Biblical Studies from Covenant College and has done graduate work at Liberty Seminary. He is an active member of Redeemer Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Lynchburg, Virginia. A licensed optician and owner of a small-town optical boutique, Mark is married with three adult children and six grandchildren.
