Können Säuglinge glauben?
Can babies believe? M. Luther’s concept of fides infantium as a lecture about his doctrine of faith Luther could not regard the idea of fides infantium as an isolated issue, even he believes that upon our certainty of faith in the infant’s heart the validity of infant baptism depends. The main objection is that babies cannot believe, because they do not have the intellect necessary to believe in Jesus Christ. Luther admits, that we cannot understand how babies believe, but he refuses the way of believing, which reason has devised. The Holy Spirit works the miracle of faith in the infant’s heart through baptism. The certainty of the infant faith grounds in the promise of baptism. Luther explains main features of his term of faith in the context of defending the fides infantium and the practice of baptizing infants.
