The decay of a real belief in baptism

‘The decay of a real belief in Baptism, the vogue of mere dedication services, and such-like decencies, which can be made family festivals, and are no part of a Church’s confession, is a chief reason why the Churches are listless in the care of the child, and why they leave it haphazard to those who are fond of that kind of thing.’ P. T. Forsyth, ‘The Church and the Children.’ Letter. British Weekly, 15 May 1913, 169.
