Spurgeon on Infant Baptism

Spurgeon’s debate with a paedo-baptist may be one of the best and wittiest responses to the issue of infant baptism.

One of them said, “Why don’t we both go to our best text to defend our position?”

The minister went to this text (Matt 19.13-15) in verse 14: “Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for such is the kingdom of heaven.”

When his opponent sat down, Spurgeon rose and responded by saying, “There was a man in the land of Uz whose name was Job, and that man was blameless and upright, one who feared God and turned away from evil” (Job 1:1).

Minister: “I fail to see what your verse has to do with infant baptism.”

Spurgeon: “So, too, I fail to see what your verse has to do with infant baptism.”
