The members of the GB who won't change this policy NOW are stone cold killers, and they know it.
Thanks for sharing, FS.
I had a good friend who refused blood after a bleeding ulcer; he died, leaving a wife and 2 girls, aged 3 and 1.
If one commits adultery (or fornication), mentioned in the same scripture that 'bans' blood, one can be forgiven and move on.
To refuse blood can be fatal.
