An issue that has vexed Calvin is predestination. One of the strongest arguments for faith alone is baptism only after one is saved by giving his heart to the Lord Jesus: you must make a choice. Babies can't make choices and thus predestination is inseparably linked with infant baptism.
(Note: Following the links one eventually finds a 911 conspiracy write-up. The problem with 911 conspiracy stories are that they are not Popper falsifiable. Lets presume Bush didn't plan to destroy the towers, in the same way that he didn't hide an invisible pink dragon in the white house: how is he now supposed to prove he didn't hide such dragon?. This 911 distracts from the article on infant baptism, which was taken from a baptist preacher long before 911. See http://www.skeptic.com/eskeptic/11-09-07/)
Christ did not become sin Edit
- 2 Corinthians 5:21 (King James Version) - For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
..... he hath made him to be sin for us .... was a metaphor, meaning he took the punishment for sin and God never abandoned him. Christ as a man asked why God abandoned him, as most people would if flogged and nailed to a cross. Christ in suffering asked God the Father a rhetorical question, knowing that he wasn't really abandoned. The key term in the KJV is ....." for us ".... it is this for us that saves the specific text from being a Meaningless sentence because sin is defined as: disobedience to God. Since Christ was obedient unto death he could impossibly have become sin. One can't become sin, no more than one can become the devil himself, only commit sin. Instead God the Father was with Christ all the way, never abandoning him. Remember that Christ was fully man and fully God. He become hungry and cursed a tree for not having fruit etc.
No earthly father would abandon a son that was obedient unto death and neither did God the father!!!
