In following Lane Keister’s arguments against Paedocommunion, I continue to ask these sorts of questions:
Why does a simple, credible profession of faith have to be spoken in words? Why not with actions, signs or symbols? Why not with a gesture? Why learn the catechisms of the Reformed faith? Why not the Apostle’s Creed? Why not the Nicene Creed? How to define the gospel? Narrowly: Christ is Lord? Comprehensively: Lord, Messiah, Death, Burial, Resurrection, Ascension, Second Coming, etc.? What does being “ready” to partake of bread and wine mean? A,B,C or A,B,C & D?
