    Now that everyone has had the chance to knock the JW's stand on blood transfusions and our refusal of them, here are just a few links to enlighten you.
    As I mentioned one reason God does not allow man to consume blood of another living creature are the obvious health risk.
    God knew this from the beginning and once he allowed man to eat flesh, he had this law set down for us.
    So for all you that have scoffed at God's law and would probably not give it a second thought to allow a doctor to pump someone elses blood into yourself or one of your family members, you need to get educated for your families safety and get out of the 20th century.

    I will start a new thread on all the advansments on blood substitues that more and more hospitals are using soon. Share this with your family....

    I don't think you understand what God meant. It is clear that God is talking about consuming blood.
    Yes there is a potential risk in blood transfusion, but you are just twisting the Bible for some unknown reason.

    I don't think you knew what God meant.......It goes both ways.

    Read the links and learn.

    I can not argue with what the Bible says.
    If all the links say the same thing, it proves the Bible correct.

    I personally do not think blood transfusion is sin, but I know there is risk.
    I think this is something interesting to chat to my pastor and friends about.

    We have no reason to twist what this says, that is something that needs to be made clear.
    It seems a few if not most here believe we are some cruel and non caring people. That is the farthest from the truth. We all love our life's and if not even more the lifes our families and even more our children.
    By no means do we take this stand of no blood transfusions lightly. This is serious. That would be foolish and cruel on any level of being humane.
    But we take the word abstain for what it says. We feel that God meant what he said and until he ever tells us differently, (((( by any means))))) we will obey that command.
    So no, we have no reason to "just twist" this command to fit some agenda or for some outrageuos belief. It's as simple as it sounds.

    I'm quite sure you do love your family. All the more why, as I said before, I feel sorry for you. I wish you were less ignorant concerning how to best care for your family, supposing unfortunate circumstances were to arise. Alas, doctrinal seriousness has totally blinded you, which is the hallmark of fundamentalism.

    You are living in the "Dark Ages" G-man. Blood transfusions can be done safely and the benefits of saving lives far out weights any risks.

    You say you take what God says seriously. Okay, God says abstain from eating or drinking blood. God does not say abstain from blood transfusions. Is that clear enough for you?

    Perhaps if you go to the other thread about all the alternatives that are avialable, your concerns will be lessened.

    Your are in the dark ages my friend concerning this now outdated technic. Do you research to see the new and much safer options you can have instead of speaking like an uneducated person...

    I'm crystal clear on God's command. But since the Bible does not say you can't use a bomb to kill, go ahead and use that the nexrt time someome makes you mad enough to feel you should. The Bible leaves that option open for you just as you say it leaves open the option to use a blood trans since it doesn't say that either.
    Such a silly comment for you to make....

    Ha, a dodge and a deflection rolled into one. Nice.

    Tell me, when did the JW organisation start claiming that "blood transfusions" were subject to a biblical prohibition? Point blank, relevant, straight forward question. Was it in the 1870s?

    Ah no wonder you are being evasive and making personal remarks instead of answering the straight question. No wonder. I have just looked it up. The prohibition of transfusions was not unilaterally declared by the JW organisation in the 1870s. It happened far more recently than that. No wonder you have been dodging and deflecting since you were asked about it.
