Believers and Their Seed is not a book designed to prove infant baptism over against the baptist position. It is a book for those already convicted of the truth that “The baptism of young children is to be retained in the church, as most agreeable with the institution of Christ” (Article 24 of the Thirty-Nine Articles).Herman Hoeksema grounds infant baptism in the covenant of grace.   Here we see Hoeksema faithful to the Canons of Dordt as he applies the doctrines of grace to the covenant.

All kinds of cults and everything started back there, winding themselves out to the end.
