A Stupor Of Thought

If a person who is living accepts the gospel, we baptise them the normal way.

And if a person who is dead accepts the gospel, we baptise them by proxy.

But I never could figure out how we would baptise a Nazgûl (who is "neither living nor dead"), if he were to accept the gospel.

Because the thing is, I taught a couple Nazgûl families on my mission, but none of them progressed very far in the discussions. So I never did find out.

Did the Nazguls mostly live in trailers on your mission? Because that's where they lived in mine.

I'm guessing you could cover both of your bases and baptize them for and in behalf of themselves (who could be considered dead...)

Gatsby said...

Yeah, Cindy. They tend to be a trailer dwelling lot.

And that makes perfect sense to me, Urban. Thanks.

We refuse to get wet after what that punk Frodo and his elf buddies did to us--washing us down the river and all. Never again will we be forced into the font.
