Representative Baptists on the Ordo

Representative Calvinistic Baptists on being born again by faith.

Abraham Booth said:

"...the page of inspiration does not warrant our supposing, that any one is born of God, before he believe in Jesus Christ."

See my posting here for the entire citation and source.

Spurgeon endorsed these words of Booth.

Spurgeon himself said, in commenting upon John 1: 10-13:

"...believers are “born again” and receive Christ through faith..."

See my posting here for the full citation and source.

In 1861 Spurgeon endorsed in full the writings of John Stock in Stock's book "A handbook of revealed theology," and in this book Stock clearly avows what Booth had avowed. Stock affirmed that men are born again by faith.

"We are regenerated by faith, and not by the rite of baptism. Baptism is an emblem of this washing and regeneration." (Baptism in its mode and subjects By Alexander Carson - pg. 478-79)

"The Gospel through the grace of it, when received in truth, raises the dead soul to life."
