Presbyterian Baptism in Noah’s Flood

Commented Calvin:6 "The dead, who in the time of Noah were [then still alive yet] unbelieving…were drowned by the deluge….   Peter ascribes salvation only to the [undrowned] family of Noah…within the ark….   In the common ruin of mankind, the family of Noah alone escaped….   Our baptism is an antitype of the ‘baptism’ of Noah…. He was preserved, together with his small family.”    Thus, we entirely agree with the Westminster Confession of Faith.7   This states that in baptism, “the children of God have His Name put upon them….   Baptism is rightly administered by pouring or sprinkling water upon the person.   Hebrews 9:19-22; Acts [1:5 & 2:1-2,17& cf. First  Peter 3:20f with Genesis 7:4f and First Corinthians 10:1f with Psalms 77:15f & 78:12f]."
