A link on Conrad Mbewe's blog lead me to a fascinating interview with Paul Levy of the International Presbyterian Church in London. I almost know Paul; I've met him, I know his brother Steve and I read a fair bit of the stuff Paul writes.
Now Paul grew up in a Baptist home in South Wales. His Dad's a Baptist. His brother's a Baptist. Paul is a Presbyterian. What went wrong?
This interview confirmed for me again something I've noticed before, and it's always true. If you ask a man (or woman, though I don't think I ever have) why he (or she) became a Baptist, his answer will start something like this: 'The more I read the Bible...' But if you ask a paedobaptist why he (she?) became p/b, they will always start something like this: 'I read this book on the covenants...' In Paul's case, it was Palmer Robertson's book, and then Schaeffer 'tipped him over'.
Nobody ever, it seems, becomes a paedobaptist through reading the Bible. Interesting, that.
