Does anyone know WHEN the WTS started to refused baptism for those who were enlisted as active duty in the armed forces (military)?
Any reference material would be appreciated.
From what I remember hearing, back in the olden days (pre-50's or 60's) anyone wishing to be baptized only had to show up at a convention or assembly to get dunked. No questions. No monitoring. Also, weren't some Bible Students enlisted in the military when CT Russell was president. I recall that these Bible Student soldiers weren't encouraged to kill with their weapons, but rather to fire them in the air in order to not become blood guilty. So there must be something in print between the 1920's and 1950's.
Your response would be kindly appreciated as there is a serious discussion among elders in the country of ****** regarding the neutrality issue.
