I. Three main reasons usually adduced by Baptist for Believer’s BAptism
1. Mode of Baptism is Immersion (But Greek Orthodox do tri-immersion of babies)
2. No Direct Command to baptize infants-but only believers (No abrogation of command to apply covenant sign to infants either)
3. No Direct Example of baptizing infants-only believers or adults (but there are household baptisms and children are considered holy in 1 Corinthians)
II. The Covenant of Abraham and the rite of Circumcion applied to his seed
III. The Exodus-Israel Covenant is similar and conjunct to the Abrahamic Covenant.
IV. The New Covenant in Jeremiah 31- Election and Covenant
V. The Disturbing passages in New Testament better explained by Believer’s Baptism: John 1:12-13 and Galatians 3:6, 26-29
