“When I made my peace with infant baptism about twenty-five years ago, I knew I had to find a way to account for the presence of baptized infidelity and, kicking it up a notch, baptized wickedness. You sometimes get those things, and you have to have a theological framework for dealing with them beforehand, one that takes biblical discipline seriously. But for the paedobaptist, that is not the real pastoral problem. You sometimes get baptized wickedness, but you always get baptized immaturity. Baptized immaturity is built right into the system, by definition” (Empires of Dirt, p. 141).
