Christ’s Great Commission and Infant Salvation

Advocates of the opposite and equally atrocious error would baptize unbelieving babies and unbelieving adults.   Such erring advocates cast the pearl of Christ's sacrament before those deemed or deemable to be swine (or at least little pigs).

As the great Anglican and Puritan scholar Rev. Dr. William Wall rightly insists in his massive History of Infant Baptism: "Suppose our Saviour had bid the apostles, 'Go and disciple all the nations' — but instead of 'baptize,' had said 'circumcise them!' An antipaidobaptist will grant that in that case, without any more words, the Apostles must have circumcised the infants of the nations as well as the grown men — though there had been no express mention of infants in the commission."
