So Jesus didn't baptise as an infant, despite all his wisdom.
Okay. So I guess every other person in the Bible had to get to age 30years before becoming baptized?

Don't guess. Are you not following the example of first century Christians again? Can you point to the bible where the first century Christians celebrate Christmas? Can you point to the bible where infants are baptizes?

Don't guess. Or are you not following the bible anymore?

Do JWs baptize infants was the question? You said you have answered the question. Had you done so, we wouldn't have gotten to this extent.

Now you are saying I guess every other person had to get to 30 years. Is that an acceptance of JWS baptizing INFANTS?

Anybody who has heard and understood meaning of basic Bible truths can get baptized. There is no age limit but babies can't get baptized as disciples of Jesus because they can't understand what it takes. It's that simple.

Does the bible forbid eating of human flesh for food?
The Bible doesn't directly comment on the matter. But Jehovah said at Genesis 9:5

“Anyone shedding man’s blood, by man will his own blood be shed”
Which can apply in another sense of someone eating human flesh after he's killed the person.

So since the bible doesn't directly comment on that, it follows that cannibalism is not wrong? (even if you don't shed the blood, probably killed by animals etc)

There is no age limit to baptism. I believe that is clear enough.

Awake November 22 1984.......What makes a religion right is its total adherence to God’s Word. Whether our religion meets this criterion or not can only be determined by open-mindedly comparing it with the Bible.

That's what they always claim but scrutinizing their belief with Bible one can see how those beliefs fall short of Biblical standards.

Imagine him saying, John 6 where Christ was talking about eating His flesh and drinking His blood has nothing to do with The Lord's Supper, simply because from Christ own statement it's evident that anyone who doesn't eat it will not have eternal life and won't be resurrected on the last day.

So obviously a cannibal would have to kill someone (i.e shed the man's blood) before eating the human flesh. This is not condoned in God's law and is a serious sin.

You will know them by their FRUIT, they cannot point to any established organization performing better than Jehovah's Witnesses, but since JWs stands out from others, they just want to argue with JWs no matter the issue raised!

That's why i wait for them to post anything against God's Organization then poke their bubble in order to make it futile! wink

Lol... You are funny. I asked about eating human flesh. That is what cannibalism is. It doesn't include killing. Just the aspect of eating.

I'm asking, does the bible condemn it?

Instead of allowing others to ask honest hearted and sincere questions, they'll come after you as if they want to know something but in actual fact they just want to cause confusion like their first century forerunners! Mark 9:14 wink

They love carrying other christian denominations belief into the theatre to be operated. When we bring their belief into the theatre for operation. They cry blue murder. Later he will say we are not open-minded.
