Baptism in lieu of Circumcision

Brother Lipscomb, did Christian baptism come in lieu of circumcision?


It did not. Circumcised persons were baptized, and the children of baptized Jews continued to be circumcised for a long while, and it would be no sin yet. That this is true you may see from the fact that Jewish Christians demanded Gentile Christians should be circumcised. If they had not circumcised their own children, they could not have asked it of the Gentiles.
