Excerpt from book:
CHAPTER I. SCRIPTURAL ARGUMENT.—BAPTISM. D. B. U's main points are ; John was a minister of the new covenant; and therefore the water baptism which he instituted by divine command belongs to it; the Lord Jesus was not only baptized, but adopted and modified the rite, commissioning his disciples to continue it, which they did. He explains the expression," One baptism" (Eph. vi. 5), and certain other passages, usually taken spiritually by friends (Col. ii. 14, 20; and 1 Pet. iii. 21), to refer to outward rites. On all these points we take issue with him. John's Baptism. Though John baptized with water by divine command, we do not admit that he instituted the rite. Not only is its meaning and its mode left without formal explanation, but all the people who flocked to his preaching seem to have understood what it meant. Some surprise was expressed at his baptizing, yet this surprise onlyshows that his questioners understood the meaning of the rite, but could not see why he should perform it, if he were neither Elias, nor Christ, nor that prophet. (Jno. 1 25.) The readiness with which a people so jealous of new customs submitted to his baptism is another strong evidence that, if the preaching was new, the rite was familiar. John's baptism was from heaven, yet transitory in its nature, the object of it being that Christ should be made manifest to Israel (Jno. 1. 31). The contrast between John, his work and baptism, and Christ and His work and baptism, is constantly dwelt upon (Matt. iii. u: Jno. 1. 26: Acts xiii. 25: xix. 4). No such contrast is ever made between Christ and His followers, for here the likeness, not the contrast, is brought out (Jno. xvii. 18: Col. 1. 24: Rom. vi. 5 : 2 Cor. vi. 1). " He must increase, but I must decrease" can never be said by a Christian,...
