Debate: Jeffrey Johnson vs Michael Horton


This video contains the audio of the debate between Jeff Johnson (author of The Fatal Flaw and a valued contributor to this blog) and Michael Horton concerning the Credobaptist versus the Paedobaptist view of Covenant Theology. The debate took place at the 2012 Semper Reformanda Conference at Grace Family Baptist Church.

It is a very interesting and helpful discussion between two men who hold to the idea that the Mosaic Covenant is a republication of the Covenant of Works. And I would just add here my special appreciation for Jeff, who has been more to helpful to me in properly understanding Covenant Theology than perhaps any other single person.

    Cool! Hoping to listen to this one soon. Do you know which view of the Abrahamic covenant Johnson takes?

      One dichotomous covenant with unconditional and conditional aspects

        So, not an earlier administration of the covenant of grace?

          Correct. If you haven’t read “The Fatal Flaw” book I definitely recommend it. He has a chapter in the new book edited by Barcellos:

          ” 9. The Fatal Flaw of Infant Baptism: The Dichotomous Nature of the Abrahamic Covenant……………………………………………………………………………………….. Jeffrey D. Johnson”

          Also on my wish list.

    I was present for this discussion and everyone there agreed that our Baptist brother, Jeff Johnson, did a yeoman’s job handling the Scripture and the facts while the experienced debater, Mike Horton, appeared to know little of either.
