Baptism Does Not Regenerate! – Calvinism Versus “Christening”

Consistent Calvinists, however — together with Holy Scripture — totally repudiate the Baptism of unbelievers, and of the infant children of unbelievers.   They require the Baptism of adult believers — and of the infant children of such believers.   Yet they affirm that God often regenerates and gives unlosable saving faith to covenantal fetuses long before their Baptism.

This pre-baptismal faith is bestowed before such infants might be sealed.   Formerly, the seal was Circumcision.   Since New Testament times, it is Baptism.   Romans 4:11; Colossians 2:11-12; Ephesians 4:4,5,30.
