John Paul Perrin, a descendant of these
role, wrote a very full account of their
ctrine and Order: It seems that their
Ithics had cbarged them with.. denying
baptism of infants, to which their his-
Irian thus replies:
" The fourth calumnie was 'touching bap
tame; which it is said, they [the Wei
deuses,] denied to little infants; '.but from
this imputation they quit themselves as fol
ioweth :—The time and place of those that
are to be baptized is not ordained • buftbe'

&c. ; and,: therefore, they to ihoja2 the
children were nearest allied, brought flair
infants to be ;baptized, as .their parents; -or .
any other whom God had made charitable
in that kind."—Book 1., eh. IV. p. 15.
"King'Lewis XTI., having been in
formed by the enemies of the Waldenses,
dwelling in Provence, of many grievous
crimes which were imposed upon them, sent
to make inquisition in those places, the
Lord Adaue Fumee, Meister of Requests,
and a• doctor of Sorban; called' Payne, who
was his confessor. They visited all ;par

ch. VI., pp: 30, 31.. •
I am sorry to retiniik that'Mr.
,"ones,' a •Baptist,' in' his " History #of the
Waldenpes," quoting avowedlytfrom•Terrin
and Other authorities( cardfully siwpressei
every. sentence which would those
people to ,, havwbeen LPedobeptists.: , A.more
glaring; falsification of historp has hardly
ever been committed outside of •the , "Papal
Church !
In spite of the abundant testimonies ad
duced by Perrin and. others, some Baptist'
writers persist- in denying that the, Wal--
demos r of Piedmont were ,- Pedobaptists. ,
And - wltat excuse do theYcller -for Contra
dicting the solemn professions;of 'belief, and
practice, so often uttered by tbesc pions
,witnesses of , theo truth? 'Simply this,: that'
during the twelfth century there sprung up,
in the Soutlrof France' , al small =seet - jcall'ed ,
Petrobrussians, who tefuseda:baptism lb in
on' the - ground - that ithey were incapa
ble of: salvation, !These , people 2 werei to' a
great extent, confounded with-the VandoiS
or Waldenses, ,hecanse .they' had frequent
intercourse, and. made dcommon cause r with
them against the >Papists. S e oon., after the
death, of their: founder, ,Peter de Bruis,
they dwindled - away andabecame extinct.
And here let ; it be. poled, that this is the
first Christian society recorded in history
who rejected . the ; baptism of, infants,,' and
that=they did so expres,aly on t ! he assumption'
that, infants were ,not,capable of salvation.
And what now becomes of the assertion,
that infant - baptism is an innovation 'of'
Popery ; ? We,have seen that the principle„
'has been ;maintained by all the - ancient
sects, iiithOtit , exception, who `separated
from the great' bedy of the Church before
Popery existed—by communities . • whiCh
never hid any connexion with Rome—,
which,' were scattered .far _apart, in 'the in=
terior, of Persia, in, a t ,reniote ‘-corner'of In=
dia, in the, , farioff regions `of Ethiopia,; and'
in the. seal/de& valleys •of , Piedniont.
`With equal tenacity Bare infreferlii the
practice of infant, baptism.,
If now we gO back to a period within
three hundred years of •the Apostolic age,
we shall.find ample evidence that no Chris
tian society that.refused:baptism to infants,
had then existed. About that time, Pe-
lagius *Balla- the doatrine that -infanta
are born-free from moral •defilement. He
was opposed with great vehemence by An,
gustin, who pressed him witly,this tpowerful
argument: t t" Why arainfants >baptized fcir
thetremission of; sins, if they sing"t
"Why arathey washed in the , laver .of re
generation, if they have, not pollution•?"
Pelagins, and teelestins, his principal abet
tor, were greatly puzzled and embarrassed
with this argument, and knew, not how to
evade or resist. its force, • without plunging
still deeper in difficulty. , At last seine one
charged upon them a denial ef, infant bails - ,
tism, as, a necesssary inference from, their
doctrine. Pelagius became indignant
"Baptism," says he, 4t ought to be admin
tered to infants with the same sacramental
words'which are used in the case of adult
persons."—" Men slander me as if I denied
the sacrament of baptism to infants"
"`I never heard of any, not even the most
impious 'heretic `who denied - baptism to in
, fants; for who can be so impious its to hin
der-infants from being baptized, and born
again in Christ, and so make -them - miss 'of
the kingdom of God." Celestine also con
fessed " that infants were to'be baptized ac
cording to the rule of the universal Church."
Augustin, - in the course of the controversy,
makes the sweeping declaration, ".that! he
had never heard of any.Ohristian, whether
Catholic or sectary, who taught any other
doctrine than that r infants were to be bap
Augustin lived in Africa. Pelagius was
a native of Britain, but resided a long time,
at Borne, then the centre of the civilized
world. He also visited, the principal
churches of Europe, Asia and „Africa.
Celestias was born in Ireland, but settled
permanently at Jerusalem. All . three were
learned men, and must have been familiar
with the early Christian Writers. If in any
part of the worlddthere bad been a church
or society, which denied baptism to infants,
they must have read, or heard of it. It ap
pears" from their testimony, that no such so
ciety had existed' within the memory o

About one hundred and fifty years after
the Apostles, there assembled'at Carthage a
Council of sixty: six bishops, or• pastors, over
which presided the martyr Cyprian: , Fidus,
a country pastor, proposed 'ld it a :query;
namelyi Whether an, infant might be bap-
tined before it was eight days old ?, The
!location, let it be noticed, was not.lvbether
infants ought to be baptized; for that was
a settled point:; but whether it was neces.
sary to wait till the eighth day after the
birth ? The following is the unanimous
decision of the Council:
" Whereas you judge that they must not,
be baptized within two or three days acter;,

to hold it -fast and .bbey iL Origen had
everropportunity to know whether such an.
order had been received from the Apostles.
He was decended from aChristian., ancestry

- Christians as a 'degraded people.; destitute,of

Of hie ail will begat he us kith "
the word'of
tilith, that we should' be a kind of first fruits'
of his creatures.--/Amrs-r :
MY DEAR FRIEND :—Therc is, no book
like the-Bible. It is theffountain-of , truth.
,We ,should. study it with- care,, and, give,
good to ; its teachings, , Some ,very 'ln
teresting and important )essons aretanght
us, in. the : verses z cennected.with,the.passtige
quoted, abovei and among, them are these : -
First. God is n ot the author of sin. Let
no man say when he. is ,tempted,
;; I am,
tempted of God,;, for God cannot be tempted
with .evil, neither tempteth he any Juan ;
but every man is tempted, when he is drawn
away of his own lust, and enticed —Jetties
i : 13-18. The Word inst, means a vehe
ment inclination;" and there is in men
a natural inclination or proclivity to'sin, a
heart that 'winked ; and this heart, - or
hist, is their own; God 'is not responsible
for it; every man is drawn away Of -his•
own lust—his own depraved heart.
Second. Hence, we are here taught, that,
we have natures'that are depraved, 'and that
actual transgression is but the acting out of
the depravity of our natures; , everytioan is
tempted when he is drawn away of. his own
lust—his-own evil heart And wicked inclinetion—and enticed, °vied astray' Then,
when lust 'Lath conceived, it bringeth forth
sin—actual transgression ;, and sin, , ,when it
is finished, bringeth forth death.—Jas.l
14, 15. So he, the writer, , James, adds, in .
the 16th verge r Do not err, my beloved ;
brethren.;, adhere to the truth ; do not err,
either by charging God with being the
author of sip, or by adopting the notion,
out all sin consists in voluntary, actsoi that
there is no sin but in the voluntary trans
greagiOn ot,known law, for that it3-a virtual
denial of .thedtiatrine,of, original sin..Therb'
is lust or depraYity,batik of,, ankbefere acts
of sin • and, hence, there is original
