Does the WTS follow the command of Jesus and baptize "in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the holy spirit"?

Yes they do, but before you are baptized they give you a book to go over and then the elders ask you questions from that book:

Organized To Accomplish Our Ministry

132 questions, thats not counting all the Optional questions the Elders ask you.

(I may have missed some of the Questions)
could be more than 132

No, they don't.

They baptize people into their 'spirit directed' organization.

Not when they are in the water being baptized
In the pool you are baptized in the name of the Father, and in the name of the Son, and in the name of the Holy Spirit.

When you are in with the Elders being asked those questions, one of those questions is do you really want to be one of Jehovah's Witness.

Baptism is a serious step one takes, they have to be ready.

I have been to many baptism's with the witnesses.

Yes they do baptize in the name of the Father, and in the name of the Son, and in the name of the Holy Spirit.

And when in the pool you are baptized in the name of the Father, and in the name of the Son, and in the name of the Holy Spirit.
so youre telling me you have video footage of the person dipping other people saying in the name of the father the son and the holy spirit?

I find that very hard to believe Jackie because the men in the pool are dipping so many people back to back don't you feel that if they said that each and everytime they dipped someone it would be like chanting?

If I am misunderstanding you I apologize

They do not ask any questions in the pool, you already answered the questions before your baptism.

In the pool they baptize you in the name of the Father, and in the name of the Son, and in the name of the Holy Spirit and they dunk you under water if you have any part sticking out they dunk again. LOL, my moms nose was sticking out and my brother yells her nose never got baptized dunk her again, LOL.

No it is not like chanting, it is like the Bible says baptize in the name of the Father, and in the name of the Son, and in the name of the Holy Spirit.

And I find it very hard to believe you do not remember your baptism?
That should be the most joyest day of your life!

I believe you just want to discreadit your ex-religion for some reason of your own?

I'm sorry jackie but that did not happen to me I do agree that if any part of you did not go in the water they do it again but they do not say i baptize you in the name of the father of the son and of the holy spirit they do not say that my brother is an elder and he has baptised many people and he has never said that

when i was baptised i was asked are you ready and they once i came up he said congratulations sister that is all it was quick because there were over 200 people getting baptised with me it was before they broke up districts and the conventions were still rather large
