Tonight in the theology class we will be discussing our union with Christ. This is a critical part of the salvation experience and reality for the Apostle Paul as he shows us the glory of our salvation in Romans. How does this union take place is a matter of theological debate however and one that is important to have.
One point that comes out in the chapter is the possible relationship between baptism and this union. Are we brought into union with Jesus Christ through baptism or not? Depending on how one biblically answers this will determine whether infants ought to be baptized and how the Church ought to view baptized infants.
Below are a series of blog articles that deal with this through a simple but important question, “When should we baptize a child who professes faith in Christ?” The three people involved in this debate are a Southern Baptist, a Reformed Baptist and a Presbyterian. If you read them in order you will see the progression of thought and the clear points of departure. This is a good example of how theology impacts day-to-day living.
