Every Christian knows that the way to accept a child into a community is to baptize them. Much of Christendom takes the position that children should be baptized at an age where they can declare themselves 'born again'. I should remind the uninformed that this blasphemous viewpoint was concocted by the Anabaptists, who nowadays refuse to join our military due to their Pacifistic tendencies. (Ironically, they are worse than the Wiccans on this regard.) John Calvin makes the point that denying infant baptism is comparable to high treason:
The case for baptizing infants rests primarily on the claim that "the transition from the 'old' to the 'new' form of God's covenant . . . did not affect the principle of family solidarity in the covenant community"(Packer 214). This is just an elaborate way of saying the Old Testament promise to bless to the thousandth generation(Ex.20:6) applies to the Church as well. Calvin plainly affirms that the promise is the same for both covenants(Inst.4, 16, 4). Both covenant promises receive God's fatherly favour of forgiveness of sins and eternal life. Calvin argues that circumcision was the token by which the Jews were "assured of adoption as the people and household of God"(Inst.4, 16, 4). Similarly, the people of the Church are consecrated to God through baptism, "to be reckoned as his people"(Inst.4, 16, 4).
Calvin reminds us that the children of the Jews were called a holy seed. They had been made heirs to the covenant and distinguished from the children of the impious. For the same reason, Calvin argues, the children of Christians are considered holy; and by the apostle's testimony they differ from the unclean seed of idolators(1Cor.7:14). It naturally follows then, that if infants share the covenant status with their parent, it is fitting "to give them a sign of that status and of their place in the covenant community"(Packer 215).
Indeed, there is no justification for keeping babies from Christ, especially not in the Bible. Yet Anti-paedobaptists continue to mock us. The Anti-paedobaptist does not understand the heir to the covenant, but instead wishes to delay his ascension. Denying an infant a place in the community will often lead the infant to adopt values contrary to Christianity, such as Pacifism, Moral Relativism, and Existentialism. This will be disastrous for the individual AND the community.
Christendom must be purged of those who do not accept Paedobaptism. If it is not, then justifications for demonic activity will emit from several of the more deviant churches, and the economy will not be fixed. Economies require free markets, gold standards, and Protestant work ethics to avoid recessions and depressions. Non-Paedobaptists actively discourage the latter from developing; as such, the nitwit that favors delaying Baptism is the nitwit that wishes to starve the economy and promote the plans of Iraq Hussein Osama.
