Calvin versus Child Communion

Calvin addressed the Anabaptist Servetus’s pseudopaedocommunionistic speciousness, and crushed the latter’s pseudo-paedocommunionism.   Realizing that the Apostolic Age’s laying on of hands (for one’s first admission to the eucharist) needed restoring in the Church – he let covenant children first catechize, from a minimum age of 10 till a minimum age of 13.

Wherever Communion Services carnalized, Calvin urged they be postponed.   In his Geneva Catechism, he insists on thorough preparation for Communion Catechumens.   He does the same in his Ecclesiastical Ordinances – with their emphasis on ‘Seasonal Communion.’
