i understand what you are trying to do but you cannot tell anyone what to do, it is free will, freedom of choice by God not man were talking about here, so jw or no jw, it is your wright to do whatever you want with your life, in the end, its God we must answer to for all our own, decisions, any thing else is a waste of your time trying to convince anyone that is is okay to take blood or its not okay to take blood, why bother arguing with this issue, you want blood take it you don't then don't, end it, that is definitely not how God or Jesus would handle things........none of my business if my fellow neighbour takes blood is it? i don't care if you do, my job is to not judge anyone, do what ever i believe is best for me, my faith and so on.<quoted text>
I guess you can quote, and try and twist scripture passages to justify your poor decisions (i.e., refusing a blood transfusion). That's up to you. I'm just trying to save your life here.
So if we worry about our own salvation first, and do what we think is wright, read the holy bible, make your own choices and mind our own business about these things really come on, you cant save anyone but yourself, God does the growing, so leave it up to him, pray about it. don't fight about it, its stupid, really. save yourself first.
so no one is saying to you what or how you should live your life, is there?
But if you want to live according to the bible and Gods laws, then go right ahead. but do as you wish, its your relashionship with God, not anyone else's.
