The Baptism of Jehovah's Witnesses compared with the Baptism of the Christians in the Bible
Jesus Christ commanded:
"Go, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things which I commanded you. Behold, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Amen." (Matthew 28:19-20)
Jehovah's Witnesses baptize people in the Name of Jehovah God, and in the Name of "Jesus Christ" [Michael the Archangel], and in the Name of the "spirit-directed" Watchtower Organization.
The Bible says that people were baptized immediately after they believed in Jesus Christ:
The Spirit said to Philip, "Go near, and join yourself to this chariot." Philip ran to him, and heard him reading Isaiah the Prophet, and said, "Do you understand what you are reading?" He said, "How can I, unless someone explains it to me?" He begged Philip to come up and sit with him. Now the Passage of the Scripture which he was reading was this, "He was led as a sheep to the slaughter. As a lamb before his shearer is silent, So He doesn't open His mouth. In His humiliation, His judgment was taken away. Who will declare His generation? For His Life is taken from the Earth." The eunuch answered Philip, "Who is the Prophet talking about? About himself, or about someone else?" Philip opened his mouth, and beginning from this Scripture, preached to him Jesus. As they went on the way, they came to some water, and the eunuch said, "Behold, here is water. What is keeping me from being baptized?" He commanded the chariot to stand still, and they both went down into the water, both Philip and the eunuch, and he baptized him. (Acts 8:29-38)
....[the jailer] said, "Sirs, what must I do to be saved?" They said, "Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household." They spoke the Word of the Lord to him, and to all who were in his house. He took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes, and was immediately baptized, he and all his household. (Acts 16:30-33)
The Watchtower Society has Jehovah's Witnesses wait to be baptized until they can answer lots of questions about Watchtower Doctrine to make sure they are "qualified baptism candidates".
The only questions in the Bible were "Do you believe in Jesus" and "Have you repented of your sins".
Here is an oxymoron:
The Jehovah's Witnesses correctly teach that baptism does not save people -- it is the Blood of Jesus' Sacrifice that saves you.
Then, the JW's also say in some of their Publications that you must be a baptized JW in good standing to surivive Armageddon.
