I remember when I first came into the JW world, they would talk about other religions that baptized their babies/& young children...saying things like, what does a baby know about God, they can't make a decision about their relationship with God/Jesus. They don't have any idea of the Ransom...Jesus got baptized at 33 yrs. old blah blah blah...we (JW's) don't do that, we make sure our children are old enough to make their own choices..NOT...Child Baptism...WHY? Because the end is near...& doesn't the bible say, if one isn't baptized, then they won't be resurrected...or some craziness....So the JW's have once again back peddled. All this talk about...we are living in the last days...so parents are panicking & getting their little children baptized. Just in case.
But hold on you'all...Wait a while when this end of days kind of dies down...then they'll write an article in the Study WT, saying....Baptism....& the article will point out that we should have more faith & a more of a waiting attitude on Jehovah,,,& should not lose faith & have our children baptized early like in Christiandom. Never not once would the org. think it's their fault by telling every one...it's the end, it's the end. Parents are running scared & lying & saying...Lil Johnny is ready, he told me, he was ready to make the Truth their own...but the real truth is that their parents #1 forced them # 2, want to stand out.
The child baptism's will continue....& no one will say one thing...oh they will think it but not say it...
It's about the #'s....so they can say, we have way over 8 million members, but won't say the majority are under 12.
One day your Elder/CO will be 20 yrs. old, telling old folks what to do.
I know many of us are still in the org. for one reason or another....I think the best thing to do...is listen, take in what you need & spit the rest out...if you disagree....Just shut up...keep it to yourself.
The org. is shooting themselves in the foot daily...Most folks will wake up yet, they will still stay.
