I have been one of Jehovah's Witnesses for over 40 years, I know first hand of the Apostate information out there. Some love to publish anything they think will sell. They should show up on American Greed!
You should see red flags when someone tells you not to listen to the opposition. You go around telling people why they need to change their religion, you encourage them to ask questions about their religion, to look at your literature and look for what their religion has done wrong. Yet when someone points out the flaws in the JW religion, shows scripture that contradicts their teachings and just use common sense to show why you shouldn't let your child die if they need blood, you won't listen.

Anyone who doesn't agree with everything the GB teaches is considered an Apostate and you automatically dismiss everything that they say. Can you not see how easy it is for them to control you? Did you not think Armageddon would already be here? Did they not get some dates wrong and make a false prophesy about "this generation?"

Why will you never answer my questions?

Yeah some might die but compared to the lives saved to those that are lost then there is no comparison. They don't have blood drives because they want to kill people do they?

This s a perfect example of why you should read things other than the magazines you peddle at doors. The JWs tell horror stories of children that would of died no matter what or some freak story where the kid didn't take blood and actually survived. That kid then becomes proof that God saved him even tho God didn't save the other thousand kids that died.

Do your own research man, the information is out there.

As far as blood transfusions see Leviticus 17:11-14 No soul of YOU must eat blood and no alien resident who is residing as an alien in YOUR midst should eat blood.”
and Acts 15: 28,29 ;For the holy spirit and we ourselves have favored adding no further burden to YOU, except these necessary things, 29 ;to 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!”
Notice the Bible put Transfusions and eating blood in bad company right along with idol worship and fornication.

Why would the Bible say to abstain from blood and then conclude by saying, "Good health to you? You are not the only one who thinks you/they know more than God.

I can understand your point of view. I suppose you are imagining your own child in that situation. As parents we would do everything possible to safeguard our child’s welfare, wouldn’t we? So if folks like you and me were going to refuse some sort of medical treatment for our child, there would certainly have to be some compelling reason for it. Do you think that some parents might be influenced by what God’s Word says here at Acts 15:28, 29?’ So the question is, Do we have enough faith to do what God commands?’
"In former times thousands of youths died for putting God first. They are still doing it, only today the drama is played out in hospitals and courtrooms, with blood transfusions the issue."--AWAKE! May 22, 1994, page 2. http://www.cftf.com/comments/kidsdied.html

You take these dead kids and act like they are Jesus who "supposedly" gave his life as well.

Why do JW kids die without a blood transfusion when they alone....they alone....their religion and no other religion is the only one that refuses blood transfusions? Why can't your God save them but a doctor can?

Wake up man and see what's going on around you.

Would you let your child die if a blood transfusion would save his life? Would you refuse the transfusion no matter what? Would you?

Is a transfusion really the same as eating blood?
In a hospital, when a patient cannot eat through his mouth, he is fed intravenously. Now, would a person who never put blood into his mouth but who accepted blood by transfusion really be obeying the command to “keep abstaining from ... blood”?(Acts 15:29) To use a comparison, consider a man who is told by the doctor that he must abstain from alcohol. Would he be obedient if he quit drinking alcohol but had it put directly into his veins?
‘But we do allow them to have transfusions—the safer kind. We accept the kind of transfusions that don’t carry the risk of such things as AIDS, hepatitis, and malaria. We want the best treatment for our children, as I am sure that any loving parent would.’
I think adult JWs should be allowed to refuse a blood transfusion, but they should not be allowed to deny their children one during an emergency.

100% agree, let the adults do what they want. They should not be allowed to let their children die tho.

Sometimes the courts will step in and order a blood transfusion anyway. We were always told as young children that if this happened then we would fight back the same way as if we were being raped. I found this out of an old Watchtower magazine I found online.

Watchtower 91 15th June pages 15-18 Walk as Instructed by Jehovah

Paragraph 17

'DP testified she would resisist having a blood transfusion in any way she could. She considered a transfusion an invasion of her body and compared it to rape.'

Paragraph 18

'L has told this court clearly and in a matter-of-fact way that , if an attempt is made to transfuse her with blood, she will fight that transfusion with all of the strength that she can muster. She has said, and I believe her, that she will scream ans struggle and that she will pull the injecting device out of her arm and will attempt to destroy the blood in the bag over her head.'

Paragraph 11

'Christian parents ought to consider that seriously, for some parents seem to have a mistaken attitude about their children and blood. Some appear to feel that they do not really have much control over whether their minor children are given a transfusion. Why this mistaken view?'

BLOOD TRANSFUSSION
If the Christian disciple Luke were back here on earth by a resurrection of the dead, what would he do? Luke accompanied Paul, who called him “Luke the beloved physician.” Would he join medics today in giving transfusions? The Bible answer must be No! This very Luke was the Bible writer who reported for us the decree of the Christian Council of Jerusalem, quoting from it three times.
This decree, as reported by Luke, said to non-Jewish Christians “to keep yourselves free ... from blood.” It made no exception for Physician Luke or medical doctors. It did not say, Keep yourselves free from blood except in the case of a transfusion administered by a competent medical doctor; or except on orders from a lawmaking body or from a legal judge who shoves aside the required “due process of law” and becomes a law to himself and arbitrarily declares a state of emergency and orders the appealing doctor to give a transfusion over the religious objections of the patient. The Apostolic Christian Council forbade “blood,” without differentiating human blood from animal blood, unqualified!
Doctor Luke, who traveled with the apostle Paul through ancient Greece, doubtless knew that the Greeks drank blood in order to have a blood relationship with the demons for the sake of learning what the future held for them. Doctor Luke must have observed that drinking animal blood served to infuse into the drinker beastly qualities like those of the animal donors. But better than Doctor Luke, Jehovah God knew the effect of taking another creature’s blood into one’s body, whether by eating or drinking it or by transfusing it. He doubtless forbade it for more reasons than that the life is in the blood and that taking blood means taking life to at least some degree. This was suggested by the Watch Tower magazine long ago. Its article “Settling Doctrinal Differences,” under date of April 15, 1909, on page 117, said regarding the decree of the Jerusalem Council on blood:
“To the Jew it was forbidden, and under his covenant it was made a symbol of life—to partake of it would imply responsibility for the life taken. Moreover, in the typical ceremonies of the Law the prohibited blood was used as a symbol representing the sin-offering; for by the blood atonement for sins was effected. To emphasize these typical lessons the Jews had been forbidden to use blood. And there may be other, sanitary, reasons connected with the matter, which are not yet known to us.”
Today, fifty-eight years since then, those reasons are becoming more and more known because of medical experiences with the widespread use of transfusions. Now, what would you think of a modern medical practice that, in one year, directly kills 16,000 in a land, and leaves still more thousands infected with deadly diseases, while at the same time other thousands survive the process? That is the case with the practice of blood transfusion.

Here is more proof: NOTICE THE LAST PARAGRAPH!

What Is a Bible Study?
Jehovah’s Witnesses offer a Bible study program that answers many questions, including:
• Who is God?
• Does God really care about me?
• How can I improve my marriage?
• How can I find happiness in life?
Below you will find answers to frequently asked questions about our Bible study program.
What is the format of the study course? We take such topics as “God” or “marriage” and examine different Bible verses that relate to the subject. By comparing them, we see what the Bible as a whole says about the topic, and in this way we let the Bible interpret itself.
To assist us in studying the Bible, we use the book What Does the Bible Really Teach? This book clearly presents, among other subjects, what the Bible really says about God, Jesus, and our future.
How much does a Bible study cost? The study is free, and there is no charge for the study material.
How long are the study sessions? Many people set aside an hour or so each week to study the Bible with us. But the length of the study is flexible. We’ll adapt it to your schedule.
What happens when I request a Bible study? When you request a Bible study, one of Jehovah’s Witnesses will visit you at a time and place convenient for you. He or she will take a few minutes to demonstrate our study program. If you like it, you can continue.

NOTICE:
If I accept a Bible study, do I have to become one of Jehovah’s Witnesses? No. Jehovah’s Witnesses love teaching people about the Bible, but we never force anyone to become a member of our religion. Rather, we respectfully present what the Bible says, recognizing that each person has the right to choose what he or she will believe.—1 Peter 3:15.

So if "100 percent of Americans have some sort of issue," why do you give Congress a break because "I would NEVER merely ASSUME or broadbrush paint them all with such a single stupid stroke, let alone condemn based upon Nothing but IGNORANT assumption."
Could you at least TRY to be consistant in your rantings.
I notice you just oppose anything, regardless of what the person is saying.
Me: "The sky is blue today."
You: "No! It isn't! I would never make that ignorant assumption!"
Repeat-
1. Because I personally do not KNOW "Congress", Congress is an entity comprised of MANY.

Here is Exodus 32:27 again from your NWT. Tell us what it "really" says, KF.

He now said to them:“This is what Jehovah the God of Israel has said,‘Put each one of YOU his sword on his side. Pass through and return from gate to gate in the camp and kill each one his brother and each one his fellow and each one his intimate acquaintance.’” 28 And the sons of Le&#8242;vi proceeded to do as Moses had said, so that there fell of the people on that day about three thousand men. 29 And Moses went on to say:“Fill YOUR hand today with power for Jehovah, because each one of YOU is against his own son and his own brother, and that he may confer a blessing upon YOU today.”

Would you care to publish how many are saved by transfusions compared to die from them? No, the GB hasn't told you to.
