Anabaptist Faith

This post is part of a series on the question of infant baptism. Did the apostles baptize infants, or was that practice a later innovation? In my first post, I pointed out that most of the biblical and historical evidence can fit either view. Therefore, we should focus on the key points that can’t fit … The Early Church and Infant Baptism Read More » The post The Early Church and Infant Baptism appeared first on Anabaptist Faith ..read more

This post is part of a series on the question of infant baptism. The previous article gave an overview of the evidence that people draw from to argue for one side or the other.

Does Archaeology of Pre-Nicene Orant Images Prove Iconodulia?
Anabaptist Faith
by Lynn Martin
10M ago
Recently, Eastern Orthodox apologists have worked to develop a new argument for the veneration of icons. This time, they are arguing from images of praying people found in the catacombs. This argument, which I will call the Participatory Art Argument, starts by pointing out that, in the catacombs, as I mentioned in my archaeology post, … Does Archaeology of Pre-Nicene Orant Images Prove Iconodulia?

Is Catholic Answers Committed to Intellectual Honesty?
Anabaptist Faith
by Lynn Martin
11M ago
Catholic Answers (catholic.com) is a hugely influential ministry. One of their functions is to provide people with pop-level arguments for Roman Catholicism. They repackage Roman Catholicism in a very appealing way. One of the goals of Catholic Answers is to prove that the Roman Catholic Church is in continuity with the early church. So many … Is Catholic Answers Committed to Intellectual Honesty? Read More » The post Is Catholic Answers Committed to Intellectual Honesty? appeared first on Anabaptist Faith ..read more

Are Tradition and Magisterium Infallible?
Anabaptist Faith
by Lynn Martin
11M ago
On this site, I’ve shown that we can reasonably conclude that the New Testament is infallible without drawing on an infallible tradition or magisterium to prove that it is. Anabaptists and Protestants, then, are in an excellent position—we have excellent support for our belief that Christian doctrine comes from the teachings of the apostles in … Are Tradition and Magisterium Infallible?

Is the Assumption of Mary found in Revelation 12?
Anabaptist Faith
by Greg Weaver
1y ago
The subject of Mary has created divisions within the church. The doctrines about Mary have been pushed by the Catholic and Orthodox churches to the point that, if other traditions do not accept the doctrines, they believe these traditions to be erring in the faith and the cause of this division. But is this really … Is the Assumption of Mary found in Revelation 12? Read More » The post Is the Assumption of Mary found in Revelation 12? appeared first on Anabaptist Faith ..read more

Reading Paul Through First-Century Eyes
Anabaptist Faith
by Paul Garber
1y ago
In this article, what I want to do is to help us rid our minds of modern and medieval thinking when approaching Paul’s letters, and step back into the first century context and read from their vantage point.  My proposal is actually very simple. Read Paul’s words for what he actually says, not what we … Reading Paul Through First-Century Eyes Read More » The post Reading Paul Through First-Century Eyes appeared first on Anabaptist Faith ..read more
