Taken from this article in The Boston Globe: https://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/regionals/north/2016/06/29/what-makes-jehovah-witnesses-different-from-other-christians/HLwbP3fmlL6dtepkHh7LWJ/story.html
What is the meaning of baptism?
Baptism is a choice Witnesses make — as adults — to dedicate their lives to God. According to the faith, spiritual protection is granted to those who “live in harmony” with their dedication.
So, where did the writer get this part, "as adults", from? Why did they go out of their way to highlight "as adults"? It was written to stand out. Was he/she assumptive, concluding that since infant baptism isn't allowed, only adults are? Were they being intentionally misleading? Did someone from the Society give the writer this information?
What do you think happened?
I tried to find the writer's name or e-mail address to clarify but the article doesn't contain either.
