Pouring and sprinkling is all the same. In pouring whole body does not get wet. Take water in your fist and see there are gaps between fingers. Try to pour water. It gets sprinkled all over.
o say that the Greek word, Baptizo (baptizo) means "to sprinkle" is to say that the Greeks had two words meaning "to sprinkle" and none meaning "to immerse." The Greek word Rantizo (Phantizo) is used often in the Bible and means:
1) "Sprinkle" (Greek-English Lexicon of the N. T. by Bauer, Arndt, and Gingrich. Page 741)
"To sprinkle, besprinkle" (An Internediate Greek-English Lexicon, by Liddell and Scott. Page 715)
How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? Heb 9:14
Katharizo (g2511) kath-ar-id'-zo; to cleanse (lit. or fig.): - (make) clean (-se), purge, purify.
Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.Heb.10:22
Although Calvin did not establish the Presbyterian Church, it
was his work and teachings that resulted in its beginning. It was
through the leadership of John Knox that the doctrines of Calvin
were brought to Scotland. The Presbyterian Church was the result
of Knox's efforts. Knox wrote for it the first articles of faith.
The "Westminister Assembly," which met in Westminister, England,
from 1643 to 1649, wrote the "Westminister Confession of Faith,"
and the "Larger and Shorter Catechisms," which have remained as
the creed of Presbyterianism.
From the foundation laid by the teachings of John Calvin there
have come various Presbyterians Groups, such as, the "Huguenots"
of France, the "Puritans" of England, the "Covenanters" of
Scotland and the "Dutch Reformed Church" of Holland.
