No it is not just you.....
I remember reviewing that article (I was 10) before I left for my court-ordered summer vaca with my worldly dad and thinking to myself ...."Heck I can't even legally commit myself to Columbia Record's buy 10 for a penny because of the legal constraints of that contract ...how am I ever going to be able to get dunked....and than praying intensely to Jehovah reminding him that I was told we couldn't be baptized in the name of an organization and to show me mercy should Armageddon come before he remedied this 'situation'....
Sure enough when we got our first WTCD the very first thing I looked up was
*** w55 7/1 p. 411 par. 15 Christian Baptism for the New World Society ***
15 A Christian, therefore, cannot be baptized in the name of the one actually doing the immersing or in the name of any man, nor in the name of any organization, but in the name of the Father, the Son and the holy spirit. This shows, among other things, that Christianity is not a denominational affair, that sects have nothing to do with it. “Does the Christ exist divided? Paul was not impaled for you, was he? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul? I am thankful I baptized none of you except Crispus and Gaius, so that no one may say that you were baptized in my name.”—1 Cor. 1:13-15, NW.
*** w66 10/1 pp. 603-604 par. 15 Serving with Everlasting Life in View ***
15 This is what we mean when we dedicate our lives to Jehovah. We do not dedicate ourselves to a religion, nor to a man, nor to an organization. No, we dedicate ourselves to the Supreme Sovereign of the Universe, our Creator, Jehovah God himself. This makes dedication a very personal relationship between us and Jehovah. For this reason, all dedicated ones are not only privileged but obligated to draw near to Jehovah in prayer. James 4:8 tells us: “Draw close to God, and he will draw close to you.” If we do not constantly put Jehovah before us in prayer we cannot fulfill our dedication vows, because it just is not possible to have a close, warm, personal relationship with someone unless you constantly talk to him. We all know what happens when family members stop talking to each other. Their relationship breaks up. If we were ever to allow this to happen to our relationship to Jehovah it would be fatal to our hopes of everlasting life.
