I don't know if this is the right forum, since I am paedo. Nevertheless, I am looking for answers from credos on this, so I think this is the right forum. Can infants be saved? Can they have faith? Some credo explanation of Psalm 22:9 and Luke 2:39-45 would be great in this context. Presupposing the answer to the above question is yes (or if you don't agree with it, can you grant the point temporarily for argument's sake?), then why is the profession of faith itself so important to baptism? Of course, paedos do not believe that infants are automatically saved, nor do we believe in ex opere operato understandings of the sacrament of baptism. Is it possible for a covenantal understanding of the home to lead us in a direction of the parents' professing faith for their children? Or is a profession of faith always an individualistic thing? Given the fact that many societies before the modern era had only heads of households voting, is the Enlightenment changing the way we look at families? Can the head of the house speak for the house?
