Typical 'hardshell' who walks on the fringes and if he is typical of many, lacks the fruit of the Spirit of which they ignore and neglect but in self-examination should be of great concern personally. I would also guess he is taking WCF XXVIII:v out of context which reads:

This article is addressing baptism in general and not infant baptism in particular. If you read the entire chapter, you will see that confessional Presbyterians do not believe that sign and seal of baptism does not automatically belong to everyone who is baptized, including infants. Article VI that follows makes that very clear, where it states in regard to the efficacy of baptism, "to such (whether of age or infants) as that grace belongs unto, according to the counsel of God's own will, in His appointed time." In other words, the sign and seal [efficacy] are infallibly bestowed upon the elect and not necessarily at the moment of baptism. Children are NOT an exception to this but included,
