“In approaching this subject, the first thing to be done is to answer unreasonable objections, produce the Scriptural authority for the Baptism of Infants, and show how history sustains the usage. To do this is a comparatively easy task. And if this can be done, not by wresting Scripture, but by putting upon it its own proper interpretation; not by bandying words, but by an unanswerable array of historical facts, the whole system of the Baptist sect falls to the ground, their excuse to exist as a distinct Church organization ceases, and upon them rests the responsibility of rending the Body of Christ, and of creating schism where there is no tenable ground for separation. – Rev. John Whitteker.
John Edwin Whitteker (1851-1925) attended Thiel College and the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia, where he was appointed Latin Professor. He was ordained in 1877 and served pastorates in Rochester, NY, Easton, Lancaster, and Rochester, PA. Dr. Whitteker established at least 3 mission churches in his lifetime. He is the author of Baptism: A Practical Treatise for Plain People and Gospel Truths.
