RITUALISM vs. OBEDIENCE

 

 

 

“The difference between Paedobaptists and Baptists touching Baptism is, to a great extent, the difference between Ritualism and Obedience.  Those who observe a rite, not concerning themselves to observe the rite, ritualize.  Those who observe the rite, because that rise is commanded, obey.  Paedobaptists perform a rite, Baptists obey the ordinance.  Baptists simply apply to baptism their constitutive principle of obedience.”

                                                                             Dr. Wilkinson.
