Is mandatory chapel attendance at a Baptist university acceptable for Jehovah’s Witnesses and Mormons?

According to their website"

"The Baylor University family includes members from the Jehovah's Witness and LDS (Mormon) faith traditions. All freshman and transfer students are required to attend chapel services for two full semesters. Students are required to slide a Baylor ID card at the completion of the chapel service and then check to see if the card was accepted."

Is it OK, doctrinally, for JWs and Mormons to attend religious services where they might not agree with 100 percent of the teachings?

    I don't think my church would have a problem with it. Personally, I wouldn't, either.

    Catholicism is the One True Faith and a person can know this with certainty by reciting the rosary every day with care.

    No - Not for Jehovah's Witnesses. I do find it interesting, however, that Baylor University would make such a statement. In response I would say that there are many people who refer to themselves as Jehovah's Witnesses. It is not, however, referring to oneself as a Witness of Jehovah that makes us such. That said, it is not exposure to religious teachings with which we disagree that would prevent those possessing a Bible trained Christian conscience from attending the services of other religions. Clearly we expose ourselves regularly to such ideas as we participate in the world wide preaching work. It is the disrespect we would be showing to our God, Jehovah, as well as the hypocrisy we would be engaging in that would prevent any such attendance.

      Since when do JWs have a problem with engaging in hypocrisy, or showing disrespect to their god?

    No for JWs. They receive their instruction directly from the Bible--through one-on-one Bible study, weekly meetings at the local congregation, and personal study. They supplement their study with Bible-based books published by their organization and reference other Bible translations as well.

  • I don't think that the Witnesses of the Guardian Tower welcome the Baptists, because they belong to the category of Protestants, and we are in contrast with their religion.

    Surely they will agree with the Mormons, in fact, they share many things of their heretical religion.

    • @. Caribbean Man: it's not part of true Christianity, because Christianity and everything else, remains faithful to the words of God, and does not modify the biblical passages at will!

    Yes, because it's still a Baptist university. I'm sure they will be happy to include JWs and Mormons, but you still have to follow University rules which are to honor Baptist traditions.

    My suggestion is not to attend such a university if you are not Baptist. They don't actually expect Mormons and JWs to attend, but they probably have to legally claim to be accepting.

    Anyone who signs on to go to a religious school, knows there are going to be stipulations. Any fool knows that. Those who don't want to attend the school, can go elsewhere.
