Hi everyone! I would like to thank the operators of this website and all the others here who support those who are walking up. Perhaps I'll share some personal story stuff at another time but I've been lurking here for a while, maybe 2 years or so. Finally got the bearings to create an account :)
I have a question mainly for current/ex elders out there but anyone can feel free to comment: my friend was baptized while still technically being part of military in the (branch withheld) Reserve. I've read that (elder book and elsewhere) of a person is smoking/formulating/drugs etc - stuff that would get you DF, then you can't get baptized and that it may be ground for annulment.
Any thoughts on this? My friend was thinking to just write bethel but before going through the obvious avalanche of nonsense that would bring, they wanted to ask in a more drama free setting.
Thanks : )
