They have been prepared for the press in the midst of other labours, and consequently are not as accurate in language and finished in other respects as he could wish. Perhaps, however, this is a matter of little importance as they may have only a local value, and be ephemeral in their existence.The writers on baptism to whom the author is indebted for portions of language occasionally, and for much of the matter contained in this volume, are Miller, Wood, Dwight, Arnold, E.

Hall, Wardlaw, Peter Edwards, Williams, Coleman, and Taylor, Paedo baptists- Gill, Robinson, and Carson, Immersionalists.In writing the following sheets, the introduction of banter and ridicule, irrelevant matter, and every thing calculated to call forth malevolent passions, has been studiously avoided. In the discussion of the questions held in dispute, the readers attention has been constantly directed to the very doctrine held by the Immersionalists, viz: that baptism is immersion, not by covering the candidate entirely with water in any way, but solely by dipping or plunging him in and under water.

Robert Hall says, Immersionalists contend for the exclusive validity of immersion in distinction from the sprinkling or pouring of water. Carson says, the meaning of the word (baptize) is always the same, and it always signifies to dip. It never has any other meaning, never expressing anything but mode. (p. 79.) Robinson says, that the word (baptism) is confessedly Greek, and that native Greeks who must understand their own language better than foreigners, have always understood it to signify dipping. (History of Baptism, p.

16.) Surrounding a man therefore with water when it does not touch him, covering him all over with water by perfusion, aspersion, pouring or any other mode except by dipping or plunging into it, is not valid baptism. It makes no difference how great a quantity is sprinkled upon him, or poured over him, he is not baptized without being dipped, and it is a matter of no consequence how small a quantity is used, he is baptized if he is plunged all over in it.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
