    A friend of mine is looking to get a baptism annulment. This person DA a few years ago and certain family member suggested a baptism annulment so that they can have a "normal" relationship. How does this work? What are the condition and how is one treated after? I suspect that you are considered the same as a DF or a DA. This person already sent the letter.

    The only time I've heard of a baptism being anulled is in the case of a person who was either still engaging in wrongdoing at time of baptism, or not in control of their faculties at time of baptism. I knew a guy who had to get baptized a second time because he was high the first.

    Honestly Bluecanary, I must have been high when I got baptized. What the hell was I thinking?

    I was 17, a minor. Mine should be annuled on that basis alone.

    I never dedicated myself to Jehovah in prayer before my baptism. Mine should be annulled by default.

    Thanks for the comments but I want to know if this is even possible and if it is then how is the person considered by the rest of the cong. and family.

    I've never heard of a baptism annullment either, but then again .... I the last time I attended a meeting was in 2000.

    I doubt it would be a standard practice. You'd be surprised at how many folks would rush at the opportunity.

    I have heard of those who want their baptism annulled, but I have never seen the society grant their wishes.

    Thanks, that's what I thought. It would to much of a "loop hole" for ex-JW, get out but you don't get shunned by your family. I will keep you all up to date on the matter.
