A fourth perversion of Acts 2:39 by Pedobaptist

This short passage is subjected to a fourth perversion. They maintain that the gospel covenant is a continuance of the covenant of circumcision! Their language is, “When God took Abraham into covenant, he said, I will be a God to thee, and to thy seed; Genesis 17:7 and accordingly every Israelite had his son circumcised at eight days old. Now it is proper for an Israelite when he is to enter into a new dispensation of this covenant, to ask, What must be done With my children?” And is the gospel a new dispensation of this covenant that God made with Abraham, according to which “every Israelite had his son circumcised at eight days old? The gospel a new dispensation of the covenant of circumcision! And does Peter so teach? No such thing appears, either in this text, or elsewhere.
