Arguments for Infant Baptism.
ARGUMENT I.
ARGUMENT II. Those who were Circumcised under the Law may be Baptized under the Gospel. But Children were Circumcised under the Law, therefore Children may be Baptized under the Gospel.
ARGUMENT III. Those who are within the Covenant of Grace may be Baptized. But Children are with∣in the Covenant of Grace. Therefore they may be Baptized.
ARGUMENT IV. Those who have Right to the Blessings of the Covenant, have Right to Baptism. But Children have Right to the Blessings of the Covenant, Therefore they have Right to Baptism.
ARGUMENT V. Those who are Capable of being engaged in Covenant with God, are Capable of Bap∣tism. But Children are Capable of being engaged in Covenant with God. Therefore Children are Capable of Baptism.
ARGUMENT VI. Those who are Members of Christs Church ought to be Baptized. But Children are Members of Christs Church. Therefore Children ought to be Baptized.
ARGUMENT VII. They who are Disciples of Christ may be Bap∣tized. But Children are Disciples of Christ. Therefore Children may be Baptized.
ARGUMENT VIII. To whom Christ grants imposition of Hands, to them be longs Baptism. But to Children Christ grants imposition of Hands. There∣fore to them be longs Baptism.
ARGUMENT IX. If the Faith of the Parents entitles the Chil∣dren to the Covenant, it entitles them to Baptism. But the Faith of the Parents entitles the Children to the Covenant. Therefore the Faith of the Parents entitles the Children to Baptism.
ARGUMENT X. Those who are Capable of the Kingdom of Heaven are Capable of Baptism. But Children are Capable of the Kingdom of Heaven. Therefore Children are Capable of Baptism.
ARGUMENT XI. All who are Believers ought to be Baptized. But Children are Believers. Therefore Children ought to be Baptized.
ARGUMENT XII. They who are capable of the Ends of Bap∣tism, may be Baptized. But Children are capable of the Ends of Baptism, Therefore they may be Baptized.
ARGUMENT XIII. Whom the Church of Christ hath ever re∣ceived to Baptism, may still be Baptized. But the Church of Christ hath ever re∣ceived Children to Baptism. Therefore Children may be Baptized.
ARGUMENT XIV. That Doctrine which introduceth many un∣christian Consequences is erroneous. But the Doctrine of the Anti-pedobaptists in∣troduceth many unchristian Consequences. Therefore the Doctrine of the Anti-pedo∣baptists is erroneous.
