For the record, I am equally critical of ALL religions. LDS, Baptist, Catholicism, Pentecostal, Sangria, Voodoo, and Seventh Day Adventist are all subject to the same scrutiny. They all make truth claims about the world that are demonstrably false and therefore they are antithetical to truth seeking.
So this is not about bashing JWs, kooky as the religion may be.
Same here but I specialize in the JW cult for many reasons. They have changed their beliefs so many times that its nothing like it was when ol Russel was running things. He got his 1914 date off the pyramids and believed they contained secrets that only he could explain. His gravestone is a huge pyramid. https://www.google.com/search...

The JW cult just settled a child molesting charge way up in the millions. I think the girls was Conti, but the JWs have a rule that two people have to witness the abuse before they can act on it. They don't report things to the police unless there was two other people sitting there watching it happen. The whole thing is so stupid and hides so many pedophiles that they had to pay out 28 million to that poor girl.

People of faith Know that God is real, and I have

Muslims and every other religions think their God is real as well. They have enough faith to fly planes into buildings. Does that make their God real? They sure don't think your is either.

Acts 10:34,35 :“For a certainty I perceive that God is not partial, 35 but in every nation the man that fears him and works righteousness is acceptable to him.
Jehovah's Witnesses follow the Scriptures!
Does that answer your question?
No you did not. It does say god in not partial. Just saying, why do you have segregated kingdom halls if god is not partial?

What does the word 'abstain' mean?
Sure, I can show that.

Leviticus 17:14 states:“Therefore I said to the children of Israel,‘You shall not eat the blood of any flesh, for the life of all flesh is its blood. Whoever eats it shall be cut off.” Also, Moses wrote that the Israelites could eat animals like deer or gazelle, but concerning their consumption, he wrote:“Only you shall not eat the blood; you shall pour it on the earth like water”(Deuteronomy 12:16).

The prohibition from the council was made so that the Gentiles would not offend their Jewish Christian brethren. The Jewish Christians were horrified at the thought of eating or drinking blood and that the “Gentile Christians were asked to respect this feeling and thus from motives of brotherly love, and from these alone, to refrain from eating blood and meat that still had its blood.

How many of your religion have been killed by giving them a blood transfusion in rejecting a clear command from the Holy Scriptures Acts 15:28,29? Do some research on your own!
You are seriously claiming that the Jerusalem Council (NOT JESUS) said a life-saving blood transfusion is the same thing as eating black pudding or blutwurst?

You are totally wrong! We do not have segregated Kingdom Halls. We are united worldwide in a true brotherhood. For that reason we do not participate in national conflicts. We have genuine love among ourselves and that does not allow for any segretion!

If you would welcome more information on the use of blood ask any one of Jehovah's Witnesses for the brochure "How Can Blood Save Your Life"

Dangit.. I can't tell you how many times I've had a guilty conscience from snacking on my idol sacrifices. I just can't seem to help myself. Maybe it's just me, but it really seems to taste better than a Whopper(R) with cheese combo. Healthier, too.

That is to accomodate our Spanish brothers who speak Spanish. At the Kingdom Hall I attend we have 3 English 3 Spanish and 1 French but that has absolutely nothing to do with segregation! We also have a Russian Congregation in New Youk City etc.

You seem to be 'nit picking' just trying to find fault and do not know what you are talking about. The Pharisees did the same thing with Jesus and his followers.

So what about the failed generation prophesy? How did they go about changing that when for years they taught that "millions now living will never die"?

The nurse comes in with several pint glasses of blood and tells you to drink it all. Yuck you would never do that. Now explain the difference!

Blood isn't intended to be ingested in this manner. The best way to explain the difference is by analogy:

Let's say you had a terrible case of hemorrhoids and the nurse told you that, instead of inserting a suppository into your rectum, she told you to suck on it. Yuck. You would never do that.

It's faulty to suggest that Jehova's Witnesses decline blood transfusions because it's comparable to drinking blood. That's insulting to practicing Jehova's Witnesses.

It's also faulty to suggest that the reason behind declining blood transfusions is related to the threat of HIV, STDs, etc... It goes much deeper than that.

Yup. Why nitpick when there is such a plethora of more substantial observations to address?
You just compared GWB to the pharisees and yourself to Jesus.
