Thank you for sharing, but I must say that it seems to me that much of your religion is not in harmony with the Bible.
Well for example, many of your organization's policies and practices related to baptism are not in keeping with the example set by the apostles.
Look at Acts 10:47, 48
47 Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we? 48 And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord.
Jws forbid water – right? Is it in harmony with the Bible to deny christian baptism to believing military personnel?
Who set up this baptism? Who poured out the Holy Spirit on Cornelius and company? Do you believe God changed his mind about accepting soldiers?
Why don't Jws follow the example of the apostles? (Acts 10:15 Is it in harmony with the bible to call unclean what God calls clean)
Conclude: Well would you agree that Jws go beyond the criteria employed by the apostles when they deny Christian baptism to military personnel?
Note 1: John also baptized soldiers and affirmed their work Luk 3:14 And the soldiers likewise demanded of him, saying, And what shall we do? And he said unto them, Do violence to no man, neither accuse any falsely; and be content with your wages.
Note 2: Paul baptized the weapon carrying jailer Act 16:32And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house. 33 And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes; and was baptized, he and all his, straightway.
Note 3: You can continue the conversation by asking: Do JWs distinguish between soldiers and weapon carrying prison guards and police officers? (On what basis?) They may reply that soldiers must take an oath of allegiance which is idolatrous. At his point you can pull out the pics that follow in the next post
