It is estimated that one hundred jws die every year around the globe for the simply reason of not taking an transfusion, an awful shame in a human sense.
Does it not seem scripturally correct to heal somebody when they are sick, Jesus did it when he came upon a sick person.
The bible says to respect life as if it was your own and Jesus's greatest commandment above all was to love one another !
Walk in his foot steps if you are to please God and so on..........
I hardly think by taking in blood from another person in an effort to heal them would be displeasing to god in a biblical sense, you can still respect the
sacredness of blood in it's meaning and give blood to heal and at the same time keep true to biblical guidelines.
The abstaining law was handed down to the people then at a time when the religious leaders thought the people were disrespecting the use of it.
Perhaps they were drinking it, and there is written history to support that. Perhaps they were dying their cloths with it or even painting with it,
but given the human social mindset at that particular time of history one can only imagine.
The WTS will never change their policy on blood transfusions and I mean never. All jw's know by now that many of their chosen flock have perished due to not taking a transfusion.
If this was to change abruptly the damaging effect would be too weakening to their power structure and they certaintly wouldn't take a chance at that.
The jws obviously forgot the inportance of the sacredness of life which was stressed even more from Jesus Christ !
Corruption follows power.......
