 CALVIN ON  THE VALIDITY  OF  'ROMISH'  BAPTISM

 (excerpted from Dr. Francis Nigel Lee’s 1990 S.T.D. dissertation “Rebaptism Impossible!”)

Strictly speaking, there is no such thing as 'Roman Catholic' baptism.   Neither, for that matter, is there any such entity as 'Baptist' baptism — as if that were something different from what some might perhaps (though erroneously) call 'Presbyterian' baptism.   Indeed, there is only one baptism that is validly Christian.   That is Biblical baptism: the only baptism Calvin the Presbyterian upheld.
