Some have said it is a sin for a church or new believer to not be baptized immediatly after baptism. Assuming we believe the Bible teached immediate, post-conversion baptism, does that also mean that Presbyerians and other paedobaptists are also living in sin? Or to put in in contrast: a. Is a Baptist pastor who, seeking to be faithful to scriptures, and believing his practice to conform to scriptures, delays baptism for a few weeks with some new convert...is He sinning, or merely misundstanding scripture? b. Is a Presbyterian who, seeking to be faithful to scriptures, and believing his practice to conform to scriptures, does not baptize adults at all if they have been infant-baptized....is He sinning, or merely missunderstanding scripture? If you answers are different for these two...What is the difference in their sincere attempt to faithfully apply their understanding of scriptures? I suppose a related question is how do we determine when someone's misunderstanding of scripture constitutes sin, and when it is simply a misunderstanding of scripture that does not constitute sin?
