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"

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!

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!
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.

YOU WILL FIND A DESCRIPTION OF JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES, It is found unintentionally in a Bluegrass song.

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.

My wife and I studied the Bible with a lady who became a Jehovah's Witness and after awhile she said," If they just knew what we have they would flock to us like bees to honey"

Blood is dangerous medicine but you are correct, the main reason is because Jehovah forbids the injesting of blood either way! Acts 15:28,29 28For the holy spirit and we ourselves have favored adding no further burden to YOU, except these necessary things, 29to keep abstaining from things sacrificed to idols and from blood and from things strangled and from fornication. If YOU carefully keep yourselves from these things, YOU will prosper. Good health to YOU!
I want to call your attention to the fact that the inspired Scriptures put the misuse of blood in bad company, things sacrificed to idols and fornication! You may as well worship idols or be a prostitute as to take blood! Not a happy thought is it?

(cont) BLOOD
I want to call your attention to the fact that the HOLY SPIRIT was involved with making that decision. So taking blood is going against the holy spirit.

to really two..
Love God, and Love yer neighbor...
The Heavens declair His Glory, If one is awake, you

The Lord has proven Himself to me... I surely would not

there, and it was I who walked away from Him... I did!
But I think I would not have been stronger If
I didn't go through all I did!
Cannot a drunk tell you better the evils of getting drunk?
I'm not saying that a glass of whatever will keep you out
of heaven, but making it your 'god' will, and being a drunk,
you've clearly made drink your god!
I think the mind plants the seed of sin, if one thinks upon it,
and then it grows in your heart to do so...
Your heart would find a way to justify (deceive) you into
thinking it's a 'Good' idea to do whatever...
I find it would be Extremely hard for one to truly know God is real
to 'want' to sin again...
I know... I'm Rambling on.... You have a Great, and Blessed day :-)
Thanks , I enjoyed your rambling...

You haven't been helping your case. If you want to SPAM people with how great your cult/sect/denomination/religio n is, put on a suit or a sandwich board and go hand out flyers in front of K-Mart.

No harm to you in any way. I tend to bully noone. To you and whoever you serve, much kindness to you and nothing more. I had questions , and was just looking for answer day to day. You may be a lost angel, but I also know what lost is.

...ALLEGEDLY involved with making that decision - and HEAVILY INTERPRETED by JW church elders.

I want to point out THAT is not in the scripture you cited. There are NO references to human sacrificial blood, cannibalism or blood transfusions in Acts. Consumption of animal blood as a food is IN NO WAY comparable to a medical procedure, and according to most Christians, Jesus HIMSELF lifted the dietary restrictions as well as the need for/practice of animal sacrifices.
Or are you inferring that JWs secretly practice sacrifices to idols...?

In the Bible if animal blood was forbidden how much more would that apply to Human Blood?

What does the word 'abstain' mean?
