I've done a bit of reading, and now find that I have a question about baptism.
Recently, a poster wrote something about j/w baptism being legally binding. When I read this, I took it in the literal sense; that somehow if one were baptised, and at a later date chose to walk away, or d/a themselves, that the org could somehow "come after" them. My question is...does this ever really happen? And if so, what would they "do" to you? And not only that, but if someone was of the mind that the org was nothing but a load of crap and they wanted out, why in the world would the org even want to hold the at one time j/w to the "contract" of baptism?
Of course, it could be I've misunderstood this whole concept, in which case I'll appreciate being enlightened by those of you in the know.
And, sort of off topic, but I must once again say how much I appreciate this board, although at times I do find myself crying while reading some of the posts. I don't know if I'm just being overly emotional these days or not, but good grief, what some of you have been through just makes my head spin. I get especially sad when I read about shunning and my heart goes out to all of you who have had to endure this.
