How does it compare to the JW’s?
In the matter of baptism, this is what I don’t seem to quite understand. In the JW’s, you have to go through a rigorous trial period before getting baptized. Some (not all) of their requirements to deem you “worthy” of their baptism have biblical support (i.e. accepting Christ as your savior, repenting from your sins, witnessing to others, not smoking, etc), even at the moment of baptism, they do say that it’s in the name of the Father, the Son, and the holy spirit…then as an added bonus, yes, is it is in the name of them (Father, Son, HS) but for (and plus) the WT organization.
If I simply reject the WT version of Christianity because I was “duped”, and join a Calvinistic Baptist church…based on the theory of Predestination, should I not be seen a Christian? Why should my status be as an unconverted, all because I’m from a pseudo-Christian denomination?
….Would any Baptist take a shot at answering question?
