Yeah, you’re sucking me in too, jsyk… long-distance female nerd party! (But this is kind of also round two, because I already went through all of this before I got baptized, but not nearly with this kind of depth, oh my!)
Hahaha, welcome to the club, Shelbs! xD
Well, same. I went through an entire packet about baptism before I got baptized in 2011, and that same year, baptism was still also a big issue on Tumblr. Back then, Andrew Dixon was the person to explain paedobaptism, so I was starting to become familiar with it even back then.
The thing is, I can’t see someone coming from a dispensationalist background ever truly understanding paedobaptism because the paedobaptist view, as I’m understanding it, has its basis on the covenants and the continuity of the Abrahamic into the New. It’s now that I’ve learned more about covenant theology and everything that I’m able to understand where paedobaptists are coming from.
I’m not sure where I stand right now, but it’s definitely quite the party. Haha.
