    If there was no shunning, there would probably be hardly any JWs left. I believe its fear of shunning that keeps many in the religion.

    heres an idea for a reform... how about the JW's try to act in a loving manner, as christains are indeed supposed to? now i would love to see this happen.

    They bang on so much about agape love, but never practice it. Its all academic.

    And by the way, in modern greek, agape just means love, thats it and quiet frankly thats all you need pure and simple

    pjs- health issues have nothing to do with whether there is a scriptural injunction on transfusions- thus it should not enter this conversation.

    Shipper, next you'll be saying you can gets Aids from shaking the hands of a homosexual, where do you get such mad capped idea's , on a side note open up your Bound Volume and look at the front cover of the May 22 1994 Awake , do you think it's good to see so many young innocent children murdered by the WTS's policy on the blood ban?

    thats right pj, blood carrys many things that one can catch...Jehovah would have known the health issues. If only many people had listened they wouldnt have died of aids, many died such awful deaths too. I remember reading in a paper before i was a jw that people were saying how the JW had mentioned not to take blood, a brilliant witness that was :)

    Abstain from taking blood, i heed that command .Glad you do too pj.

    rubbish AE, millions of lives are saved daily by taking blood,that statement is pure unadulterated rubbish, still your WTS leaders view life very cheaply hence the amount of innocent young children that have had that gift taken away from them, open up your bound volume to the May 22 1994 Awake front cover, the WTS allowed blood for it's members up until the 1950's strange the sudden U turn back then, I wonder why

    masturbation is understood for those who have been abused....yup an E told me that. Apparently there was an article about 5 years ago saying that if someone had been raped or abused then masturbation maybe needed for them even though it may cause them pain due to recalling the experience. I thought that was so loving and a good reminder that Jah understands...xxxxxxxxxxx

    The ban on blood transfusion was not a scriptural law rather it was created by the men of the WTS. established by this defunct voice of god.

    This abstaining from the eating of blood is still practiced by orthodox Jews to this day in the special treatment of how a animal is killed and the

    handling of the blood of the animal to meet Kosher dietary laws.

    The men of the WTS. wanted so much to have the power of god in their hands that they were more than willing to BULLSHIT their way

    right into it, just like so many other men before them and preceding them.

    Its commendable that your posting here PJSCHIPPER, your opening the door and learning about human psychology.
