both sides of the coin again
anti-christ yes we are encouraged to stick by the publication order whichever book you use but it's okay to address specific questions brought up by the study and maybe find stuff that particualr addresses it especially if it is something important to the study. lying was never an option you may say "give me time to look it up if it is an indepth issue" but thats all.
poppers You should not get baptised if you do not know what you are getting into, that why the elders have that question talk it addresses everything from blood to df-ing there is nothing hidden. When Jesus Got baptised did he think well this is not a full commitment i'm only half sure? Baptism is about FULL commitment to the message and to God, if you no longer believe it then you should not be one anymore simple as that but JW's have commited themselves to preaching the message and to being a religion that follows God's word they are accountable for that as is anyone that says they are Christian this is not a time for half measures and loopholes.
hi anti-christ just read your next message why didn't you show him were the bible shows that leaders are responsible for deciding everyday aspects of the faith?
