MacArthur and Sproul Debate Infant Baptism

The Thursday feature of the Worldly Saints blog will be sharing of a media clip (audio or video) that has either educated, equipped, provoked or entertained us in some way.


I don’t remember the exact year, but a little over 10 years ago, the Ligonier Conference was being hosted my a Nazarene mega-church in Pasadena, CA. It is the only Ligonier Conference I have ever attended and it was well worth it.

John MacArthur and R.C. Sproul held a multi-hour debate on the subject of infant baptism. I don’t believe there are any videos available of such a debate, but you can listen to the below YouTube video.

SPOILER ALERT: MacArthur clean Sproul’s clock in the debate!




  1. Charles, I heard a debate between R.C. Sproul and Alistair Begg 14 years or so ago at a “Renewing Your Mind” conference with the same results. For those of us who believe there is no Scriptural evidence for Infant Baptism, the argument seems so clear and self evident. I love R.C. Srpoul for his stand and teaching on God’s Holiness and Sovereignty and Redemption and so much more, but…
    Thanks for sharing this.
