Their souls are in Egypt, in houses where there is drinking, swearing, Sabbath-breaking, and where God’s name is every day dishonoured. In matching their children, they look only at money. ‘Be ye not unequally yoked.’ 2 Cor 6: If their children be equally yoked for estate, they care not whether they be unequally yoked for religion.

Get this from a library. The convenant-interest and privilege of believers and their infants: clearly demonstrated in a letter to a religious lady. [Minister of the Gospel.]. Hence, therefore, it follows that, if they were ingraffed in the church as believers, (the fathers as actually believing, the children as set apart by promise of God to be made to believe, and in their parents’ faith accounted believers,) then all believers at this day have the same privilege, and the covenant then, being made only in respect.

By denying their infants baptism, they exclude them from membership in the visible church, so that their infants are sucking pagans. Such as deny their children baptism, make God's institutions under the law more full of kindness and grace to children than they are under the gospel; which, how strange a paradox it is, I leave you to judge.

God having promised to be a God unto believers, and to their seed in and by them, they do three ways bless them with the good things thereof: first, By communicating unto them the privilege of the initial seal of the covenant, as a sign, token, and pledge of their being blessed of the Lord; secondly, By pleading the promise of the covenant in.

We thought, sir, that our children’s title to baptism was derived to them from their believing parents, as the children of the Jews was to circumcision, from their circumcised and professing parents; and that the same promise which conveyed their children’s privilege to them, Genesis 17 had conveyed the right of believers children to.

In other words, you see the church as a mixed-people, just like Israel, made up of regenerate and non-regenerate covenant members, admitted by a rite of wet circumcision, who have the grace of Abraham’s fulfilled covenant.

By denying their infants baptism, they exclude them from having a membership in the visible church, and so their infants are sucking pagans. Such ag deny their children baptism, make God's institutions under the law more full of kindness and grace to children, than they are now under the gospel; which, so strange a paradox it is, I leave you.

The Catechist Catechised. Nor is there any appearance of taking away, by this text, any privilege from Jewish believers or their children, but only of enlarging their privileges unto the Gentiles.

Nor have we any solid ground to conceive that God, at the coming of Christ, took away infants’ Covenant interest, church membership and. It is not fact, as has been asserted, Baptism of infants a reasonable service, p. 14, that the “infants of believers” have, with their parents, been taken into covenant with God in the former ages of the church, if by it is meant the covenant of grace; the first covenant made with man, was that of works, made with Adam, and.

The "covenant interest" of "the children of believers" as such, or of " infants" of believers, or the "church membership of infants," and "the seal of their admission into the church," giving to the word "church" any idea re sembling its New Testament use in application to the church, or a church of Christ, needed not to be "repealed or made.

Bible that the infants of believers have, with the•.r parents, been taken into covenant with God in the former ages of the church, if by it is meant the covenant of grace; the first covenant made with man, was that of works, made with Adam, and which indeed included all his posterity; which surely cannot be pleaded in favour of.

Practical Divinity~Book 3 Chapter 1: Of Baptism. As the first covenant, or testament, had ordinances of divine service, which are shaken, removed, and abolished; so the New Testament, or gospel dispensation, has ordinances of divine worship, which cannot be shaken, but will remain until the second coming of Christ: these, as Austin says {1}, are few; and easy to be observed.

Therefore, I conceive the limiting of a new covenant interest to the grant of an external and temporary privilege only, to be utterly inconsistent with the promises of the covenant itself (such as these: Isaiah ; ; Jeremiah34; Ezekiel27 with Hebrews 8 and many others of like import).

Fathers and Brethren, at the opening of our General Assembly for I propose to address you on the need for a reappraisal and a reaffirmation of Covenant or Federal Theology. In taking up this subject I entertain no pretensions of being able to shed any original light on a theme which has been so thoroughly and eruditely covered for centuries within the Reformed tradition.

Children in the Administration of The Covenant of Grace by Thomas Shepard When we say that children are members by their parents' covenant, I would premise three things for explication.

James is not only God's servant by the right of creation and providence, but Christ's servant by the right of redemption; yea, especially deputed by Christ as Lord, that is, as mediator and head of the Church, to do Him service in the way of an apostle; and I suppose there is some special reason for this disjunction, "a servant of God and of Christ," to show his countrymen that in.

Throughout the rest of the New Testament, and especially displayed in the book of Acts, baptism functions in accordance with Jesus' institution of it.

It is a sign for disciples, who have placed their faith in Jesus (cf. Acts ). All clear cases of baptism in the New Testament reflect this "believers' baptism" policy. “Since we are to judge of the will of God from His Word, which testifies that the children of believers are holy, not by nature, but in virtue of the covenant of grace, in which they together with the parents are comprehended, godly parents ought not to doubt the election and salvation of their children whom it pleases God to call out of this.

This is the first of a series of posts in which I hope to offer an explanation of my view of God’s covenant dealings with Abraham. This view is virtually the same as that held by Nehemiah Coxe, and presented in the book Covenant Theology: From Adam to Christ, by Nehemiah Coxe & John dear paedobaptist brothers and sisters of mine are often confused when I assert.

Chapter Seven The Covenant of Circumcision (III) The True Meaning of the Great Promise §. It will be expedient in the next place, to more fully search out the true meaning and extent of that great promise in the covenant of circumcision which was only briefly touched on before; that is, “I will establish my covenant to be a God to you, and to your seed after you” (Genesis ).

The grand blessing of grace flowing from this union, is covenant interest in God ; than which there cannot be a greater blessing; Happy is that people whose God is the Lord. Hence, in. There is a mutual intercourse between God and his people; which is variously expressed in scripture.

Seeing the covenant of grace was never sealed to infants by circumcision; nor was that bloody and painful rite accounted a rich and glorious privilege; far from it; especially as it bound them over to keep the whole law, it was a yoke of bondage, an insupportable one: and it is a rich mercy, and glorious privilege of the gospel, that the Jews.

For their prayers: Christ taxeth their affectation of applause, because they sought out places of the greatest resort,—the synagogues and corners of the streets,—and there did put themselves into a praying posture, that they might be seen of men, and appear to be persons of great devotion, and so might the better accomplish their own ends.

§1 The Covenant Of Works. The distance between God and the creature is so great, that although reasonable creatures do owe obedience to him as their creator, yet they could never have attained the reward of life but by some voluntary condescension on God’s part, which he hath been pleased to express by way of covenant.

Job ; Ps. ; Isa. ; Luke. Represented by him, their Head, all his people even now are glorified in him–even in him who is the head over all things to his church.

In all the deeds of Christ, either in his humiliation or his exaltation, recollect, O believer, thou hast a covenant interest, and all those things are thine.

The disposition of their souls is Godward, and to his service; they have an understanding of him, and desire to know more of him, and follow on to know him the use of means; their thoughts are employed about him, they think on his name, his nature, and perfections, and lovingkindness, as displayed in Christ; their affections are set upon him.

Take all the distinctions of man kind, infants, and grown persons; I mean infants who die before they are in an ordinary way capable of the doctrine of life (the scriptures are written for grown persons, the case of infants is more obscure), those of them who are born within the church, God is their God: 12 Gen.
