Have you ever noticed that moderate to severe cases of mental conditions will keep you from getting baptized? Mental retardation, learning disabled or with disabilities, multiple personalities, old timers disease, these will keep you from being baptized and will get you disfellowshipped. Anyone know of any more?
I told some people to look around at conventions and if any of these sick people were found, they were to go up and ask if they were publishers. There were none that were publishers and the people with these sick ones would appologize and explain they were family members they could not leave at home. How sad! If this was really God's organization and people are to be baptized, where are they suppose to go? What about the early days when congregations were being started? People didn't have to learn the books to be baptized, their weren't requirements to be made.....etc.
