Joe, I realize that there is a distinction between the church invisible and the church visible. I also realize that the majority of paedobaptists do NOT believe that all children of believers are saved, nor that baptizing children saves them.

What exactly is meant by children being in the Covenant? I have been taught that not everyone in the church visible are actually in the Covenant.

True godliness is a sincere feeling which loves God as Father as much as it fears and reverences Him as Lord, embraces His righteousness, and dreads offending Him worse than death~ Calvin
