This is nothing new, they have always said that the organization does not live my laws but principles. They have always preached that they get their guidance from the scriptures. All Christian religions say the same thing but we have thousands of different faiths that intrepid the bible their own way. It just shows that you can interrupt the bible anyway you want. Good example is the blood issue. Why is it that the Jdubs are the only ones that don't take blood? How can anyone, in the first place, live their lives today in the 21 century on a book (a book full of myths, legends and superstitions) that was written and rewritten thousands of times?
