Catechism for Converting Paedocommunionists

Paedocommunion irreconcilable with the Post-Exodus Pentateuch

Q. 67.   But doesn’t Exodus 13:8-14 imply that also baby Israelites ate the Passover? A. 67.   No, for babies cannot ask questions and be catechized – any more than the firstborn animals which open the womb of animals should eat the Passover.

Q. 68.  Doesn’t Exodus 16:16, cf. with 12:4,  prove that all those children who ate the manna – also ate the Sacrament of the Passover? A. 68.  No.   For unweaned babies did not, but worms did, eat the manna (Exodus 16:20).   Only the mature men, the complaining Congregation, gathered it.   Perhaps even the Israelites’ unprofessing halfbreeds and even some of their animals ate that unsacramental manna. But the mature men who gathered it, did so only for those in their tents who could eat it – not for their prenatal babes or their unweaned infants (16:10-16).
