We've all read the bible verses for and against infant baptism, and we've all made up our minds on whether it is a biblical practice. But I would like to approach the question, if you don't mind from a different perspective, that of history: From my own studies, I have seen that in the year 200AD, infant baptism was widely practiced and accepted among Christians. My own studies have not turned up any evidence of a dispute within Christianity, or any objections to this practice before or at that time, that would indicate it was something new and that it went against the teachings received by the first Christians from the apostles. Could opponents of infant baptism point out anything historical that would show how and when this 'false teaching' was introduced, and evidence that it was controversial among Christians in the first centuries? I know this isn't your normal approach to doctrine (to look at history), and instead you look at the bible. But to me, this is an important question, since I want to believe and do what the apostles taught the early Christians to believe and do.
