Baptized or not
Never saw any real, noticeable difference between the two types of Christians.
Is there any real difference you would care to mention?

More bakeries less churches; more baking powder less religion.

I've never met non-baptized Christians, so I can't really say.

I don't think there are unbaptized believers of Christ, but surely the differences other than practice are obvious. Simply different people creating different versions of one idea, God's needs.

Surely, the main difference hidden behind all of the whoas and what-have-yous of time, is the allowance of what each sect views as holy action and unholy action.

Mormons in fact are linked to the Native American peoples, in the fact that they believed in the creation capability of humanity through visions and insights given in accordance to an understanding that it was the Natives who cared to go there.


Basically, new religions mark a place where people are into doing different things. Meditation is a big part of being Mormon.

More bakeries less churches; more baking powder less religion.

RE: Baptized or not
Water baptism is a requirement for all who want to have a relationship with Jehovah God. Baptism publicly indicates your desire to serve God. It shows that you are delighted to do his will. To qualify for baptism, you must take definite steps.
You do not need to know everything in the Bible in order to qualify for Baptism. The Ethiopian court official in Acts 8:30,31 had some knowledge, but he needed help to understand certain parts of the Scriptures. We still have a lot to learn. We will never stop learning about God – Ecclesiastes 3:11. However, before we are baptized, we need to know and accept at least the basic teachings.
Knowledge alone is not enough. Hebrews 11:6: “without faith it is impossible to please God well.” The bible tells us that when some people in the ancient city of Corinth heard the Christian message, they began to believe and be baptized. A study of the Bible should fill you with faith that it is the inspired word of God. Bible study should help you to have faith in God’s promises and in the saving power of Jesus’ sacrifice.
Apostle Peter said “repent and turn around so as to get your sins blotted out.” Acts 3:19. To repent is to feel sincere regret over something you have done. Repentance must be followed by conversion, or turning around. You need to reject your former way of life and be firmly determined that you will do what is right from now on. Repentance and conversion are steps that you must take before being baptized.

I think that the Jehovah bit refers specifically to the god that only your sect recognizes. Is that correct?
Quote:Baptism publicly indicates your desire to serve God. It shows that you are delighted to do his will.
Why would an all powerful Jehovah want anybody to SERVE him? Why would an all powerful Jehovah want anybody to do his will, after all his WILL JUST IS, nobody needed to make it happen.
Quote: “without faith it is impossible to please God well.”
It must be possible to please Jehovah unwell? So this all powerful Jehovah requires belief in him or whatever you do is worth nothing? The most righteous, honest, loving inhabitant of the deepest darkest regions of the amazon forrest, who has never heard of your Jehovah, can't possibly please him?
It would seem from what you have written that your Jehovah is not a GOD at all. Perhaps some sort of petty bureaucrat perhaps?

This God (Jehovah) just has a bigger Ego than most...
