When I was a child I was transfused with my father's blood.

I got his immune system as a result - everything he had been exposed to his entire life, I have the immunities for. I very rarely get sick from the flu.

But NOW my father has died of cancer and they (medical community) believe that there are some cancers caused by virus.

So, I got my dad's cancer virus, too, if that is in fact the case.:'(

Doctors did not know to test for HIV when that particular virus morphed and became transmittable to humans. Consequently many dies horrible and painful deaths.

The same can happen again with yet another newly morphed virus and we would not know until countless thousands and maybe even hundreds of thousands died from being transfused with that virus.

I like your analogy Aviela, of kissing strangers and taking their blood into my body! Not gonna do it!

Truly! No-one would walk up to a perfect stranger and volunteer to exchange spit?? so why accept blood from a perfect stranger? I know I won't. Not anymore. Not after thinking about the risks I am now living with after having taken my father's blood.

And yes, the Bible does *explicitly* state that blood is sacred to God.

Also, I would not want another persons DNA in my body either. We know that with modern science we now take DNA samples from blood.

No. I would not want to risk being one of the 'first' to die of a newly morphed virus NOR do I wish to have a strangers DNA coursing through my veins.

There are blood volume expanders (solutions that will help keep a person's blood pressure as close to normal as possible - too low and there is not enough pressure to force it through the body, and too high causes serious strain on the veins and critical organs). Today a person can be given drugs that will speed up the production of red blood cells. I would opt to go in that direction. I mean, if my body can manufacture it's own red blood cells why do I need a perfect strangers red blood cells?

Now we all know they tell us our blood supply is *safe*... but it's only safe for what they can test for - and they can only test for what they KNOW to test for. So in reality - our blood supply is not really *safe* now, is it?(I have a friend who is a Phlebotomy Technician!! And we have had discussions about transfusions.):)

So, I plan to keep myself free from other people's blood. Ew.

According to Discover:

16% of Cancers Are Caused by Viruses or Bacteria

16% seems like a very 'definite' number ... but my intuition tells me this number probably is not absolute.

quote from you"AUTHENTICATED AND "VERIFIED" One True Apostolic Catholic Church..........JETHRO:show me where in the bible or any scripture where it is "verified" that the catholic church is as you put it "the bride of christ" again the question remains "why would a jewish man build a true holy church based on christian/pagan beliefs/traditions in a country that ransacked his country,forced his people who were raped and brutalized and bound into slavery by this empire,and also were responsible for his crucifiction?? the logic is not there,you are being b.s'd. big time and you don't even realize it.Ifeel sorry for you.

Infallible Catholic Church Teaching #63...
It is moral and correct to use the power of "Holy diplomatic immunity" to avoid accountability in the abuse of children at schools for the deaf
1... It was probably the deaf children's fault.
2... It was "just a few sinners here and there."
3... It really has nothing to do with THE Church.
Holy diplomatic immunity is a good thing when used against the deaf.

From the Article of this Board.......
"It says although Orthodox churches are true churches, they are defective because they do not have diplomatic immunity."
The document adds that Protestant denominations — called Christian Communities born out of the Reformation — are not true churches, but ecclesial communities.
"These ecclesial communities which, specifically because of the absence of diplomatic immunity … cannot, according to Catholic doctrine, be called 'churches' in the proper sense," it said.
i could be wrong but isn't it stated that the catholic church calls these other churches inferior because they do not reconize the papal chair as being holy??

fred new friend
Your question of "Why no one sees they changed his name and made him a god?" Is a bit cryptic....But the way you write, it seems you are asking the question, Why did they change the name of God?
There are three answers....
First God is not contained in letters that human beings write. Letters are for language, and language is conceptual. Therefore the translation of language is upon concepts. God is not a concept, or a munfufactured idea(concept) of man. Another way to see this is if one called God is ABC, or CBA, does it matter? No, because neither is God.
Secondly, language is an expression, and thus artistic. And therefore one cannot artistically capture God. Rather one can only describe God with symbols.
Thirdly, God is Spirit. And Spirit can act upon Creation, but Spirit is outside of Creation, and is therefore indescribable.
I hope that answered your question....
quote"God is not a concept, or a munfufactured idea(concept) of man."unquote unless you can show undeniable proof that the one god theory is true,he is a concept of have nothing to verify the stories in the bible and the books left out are factual,if you read history dating farther back than 2000 yrs. ago you'll find the same stories written by learned people,the most common one is the great flood story,stories of this nature go back before man created the alphabet,there are numerous drawings on cave walls in europe,south america,ireland,scotland and asia. the bible is a concept created by a group of people that emporer constantine put together to create a religion that the christians and paganists of rome could live with,that is how the concept of catholocism was born,it is of mans imagination,not a creation of a single god,if it were it would date back further than 2,000 yrs. considering how long the earth has been around,2,000 yrs is not that long ago.the earth is billions of years old and a god created man a few centuries ago? i believe we were aledgedly created somewhere between 6,000 to 10,000 yrs ago? the time depends on who you talk to,religious group that is.and christianity is a baby compared to other religions.

Next question?:oD
here's your next question,how can anyone belong to a religious group that allows people to die needlessly because it is forbidden for a jehovah to have a blood transfussion which would save the persons life? two cases stand out in my mind that i read about in the newspaper because these cases ended up in court.a thirteen year old girl needed blood in order to survive an acident she had,her parents refused to allow the doctors to give her the blood she needed,the case went to court seeking an order from a judge to allow the girl to recieve the blood,unfortunately while the court battle was going on the girl died, for no reason other than a religious belief in a god that no one can prove the second case a woman in her 50's involved in a car accident lost a lot of blood needed a few pints in order to live her husband refused to let the doctors give the woman the blood,the woman's side of the family took the matter to court,to allow the dr's. to give the woman the blood and she would of survived,again due to the lengthy judicial process involed the woman died before the case could be settled. like i said a waiste of human life for no reason whatso ever. you may be a nice person, but your religion sucks.

<quoted text>
Act_15:20 But that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and from fornication, and from things strangled, and from blood.
Act_15:29 That ye abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well. Fare ye well.
It says nothing about transfusions, which can save a life... Drinking blood or eating it is forbidden; not transfusions of blood.
Actually, you won't admit it, but she just proved you wrong by using scripture.
You and 4gvn are on the same team with Guest. But Guest doesn't agree with you...she agrees with Aviela.
Good news though....I just started my own religion and declared myself an authority on the Bible. Now I can prove all you wrong by showing Jesus Christ started a Church, not a book. The Bible arose within the Church and became 'a Bible' 70 yrs after Constantine died.

distorting historical fact is allot more difficult than distorting verse chapter verse of the Bible.

Wow. You're such a bigot, you apply anti Catholic remarks when someone isn't even talking about them .
Aviela was speaking to Preston being 'nasty'.
