Reformed Baptists

Steve Hays posted about Reformed Baptists, and I liked it, so here it is. As a Reformed Baptist myself, it was enjoyable to read. Personally, I don't get sideways about my Reformed Presbyterian friends being paedobaptists, because to me, it is an issue of conscience. I am not convinced from Scripture that infant baptism is warranted in the church. Presbyterians feel the opposite. So be it, I am fine with that. I am convinced Covenant Theology is the best hermeneutic. To my mind, it simply flows from the text. I would assert that I can be a Baptist and still be faithful to a Covenant hermeneutic.

Here is the post on Mr. Hays' blog: Reformed Baptists and other Devil-worshipers

As well, I subscribe to the Reformed Baptist Theological Review. These are seriously well done journals, I highly recommend you subscribe, regardless of your theological bent. You will be edified.

My hope is that Reformed brethren on both sides of the isle will be able to unite in the Gospel of Grace and proclaim it with vigor and conviction to a world that hates God. I believe the Doctrines of Grace and the high view of Scripture that the Reformed theology enjoys are pillars to faithful Gospel proclamation.

Lord, unite us in your mercy and glorious, sovereign grace.

Soli Deo Gloria

Nice design!

I agree with you (though I must say right now I'm "across the isle", though to be honest I haven't looked too much into it)

Amen Joe

If anything bothers me, it is Reformed brothers who get stuffy and condescending on the baptism issue. As if we're all just a bunch of buck-toothed hillbillies who pick amazing grace on a banjo and handle rattlesnakes during communion.

The issue is the New Covenant, plain and simple. Let debate needs to center around the nature of the New Covenant and nothing else.
