How can you possibly confuse baptism with "christening?" No matter what your view on baptism may be, you must in this instance refer to "infant baptism" in order that those with little knowledge of Assembly history may be able to equate that with "christening," which it is in reality!

Agree with you in principal but have to accept the English language usage of the word baptism even if in this instance it does not equate exactly with the Biblical usage of the word!!

J.N.D.'s own comment is: 'I never was satisfied with the manner of my baptism [christening], though I felt it could not be repeated: I had been received into the ostensible body with bona fide intention of doing so, and could not be let in again. I think the principle more right than Baptist ones.’ (J.N.D. Letters 3: 161)
