Spurgeon on Infant Baptism

An Excerpt from C.H. Spurgeon, CHILDREN BROUGHT TO CHRIST, AND NOT TO THE FONT

DELIVERED ON SUNDAY MORNING, JULY 24TH, 1864

The font is a mockery and an imposition if it be put before Christ.If you have baptism after you have come to Christ, well and good, but to point you to it either as being Christ, or as being inevitably connected with Christ, or as being the place to find Christ, is nothing better than to go back to the beggarly elements of the old Romish harlot, instead of standing in the “liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free,” and bidding the sinner to come as a sinner to Christ Jesus, and to Christ Jesus alone.
