comment In whose name was Jesus baptized?
The "Aaronic priesthood" is not a concept that (to my knowledge) exists outside of LDS theology. Such an answer would be appropriate if the question were asking for an LDS perspective on baptismal authority.

comment In whose name was Jesus baptized?
Baptism, of various forms, did exist prior to John the Baptist--but as a pagan ritual, not (principally) among Jews. Your entire argument is "JtB had authority from God to baptize due to having priestly authority." Unless priests actually had authority to baptize, your argument falls short. And as you have now explained, there's no direct evidence that he, or any priest, had such express "authority."

This assumes that priests had authority from God to baptize people. Can you provide a reference for this?

comment What Scriptures are used to justify the belief that Christians of Denominations other than a specific one will be rejected by God?
The answer to this question depends on whom you ask.

comment What are the good Bahasa / Malay / Indonesian words to refer to the Christian God?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about linguistics.

comment Who was the last valid pope according to the founders of various Protestant sects?
sect vs. denomination is a significant difference in the case of this question. I think it's important to stick to the OP's language.

comment Do Catholics tithe?
I don't know enough to provide a real answer, but I used to date a Catholic woman who was required to tithe so that her children would be permitted to attend the local perish's Catholic school.

@Geremia: That's a good question. You should ask it. Once per denomination.

comment Do (or did) any Protestant denominations believe in apostolic succession like Catholics do?
I have upvoted your question, because I think the title question is a good one. But I have, for the moment, also voted to close, because you're asking too many questions at once. I suggest removing the question about the "recent valid pope", since that doesn't even make sense in the context of protestant churches.

comment Do (or did) any Protestant denominations believe in apostolic succession like Catholics do?
@Geremia: They don't recognize popes. If you want to know who is the head of each church, you can use Google, or ask a separate question for each one.
