To all JW's , I got a question for you: do you recall the day you got baptized? Sure, you do because this was the greatest day of your life. Okay then, do you recall in whose name were baptized? Please feel free to use Matthew 28:19 to justify your answer. If however that you can't use Mathew 28:19, were you properly baptized then?

I was baptized in the name of Jehovah and the spirit guided organization aka the Watchtower. That was totally wrong and evil. Once I became a true Christian, I got re-baptized properly in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Thank God for that.

Jehovah's Witnesses are baptized in the name of the Father and the Son and the holy spirit:

*** w02 2/1 p. 21 par. 10 Have You Received “the Spirit of the Truth”?***

10 The holy spirit does indeed play an important part in the lives of the other sheep. They symbolize their dedication to Jehovah by being baptized “in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the holy spirit.”(Matthew 28:19) They recognize Jehovah’s sovereignty, submit to Christ as their King and Redeemer, and yield to the action of God’s spirit, or active force, in their lives. Day by day, they make room in their lives for “the fruitage of the spirit,” namely “love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faith, mildness, self-control.”—Galatians 5:22, 23.

Following are the 2 question asked befoere one gets baptized.
The first question is:
On the basis of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, have you repented of your sins and dedicated yourself to Jehovah to do his will?

The second is:
Do you understand that your dedication and baptism identify you as one of Jehovah's Witnesses in association with God's spirit-directed organization? Having answered yes to these questions, candidates are in a right heart condition to undergo Christian baptism." Watchtower 1985 Jun 1 p.30

that is a lie of the devil. JW's are baptized only in the name of Jehovah and the name of the spirit guided Watchtower.

The Watchtower is guided by a spirit. Has anyone wonder on the identity of the identity of that spirit? That spirit couldn't be the Holy SPIRIT.

Sorry, it is you who is being untruthful.

This is a DIRECT QUOTE from the publications of Jehovah's Witnesses.

It PROVES that they do indeed get baptized in the name of the Father and the name of the son and the name of the holy spirit:

*** w02 2/1 p. 21 par. 10 Have You Received “the Spirit of the Truth”?***

Why should we believe what Ex-JW says when we have documentary PROOF of how Jehovah's Witnesses get baptized?

And if any READERS are in ANY doubt, PLEASE ask one of Jehovah's Witnesses next time you meet then.

Then you will know the truth and who here is being honest.

Why are Jehovah's Witness baptismal candidates asked the following questions that require a "Yes" answer before they qualify for baptism?

On the basis of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, have you repented of your sins and dedicated yourself to Jehovah to do his will?

Do you understand that your dedication and baptism identify you as one of Jehovah's Witnesses in association with God's spirit-directed organization?

Having answered yes to these questions, candidates are in a right heart condition to undergo Christian baptism."
