Taking a blood transfusion is a worse sin than committing suicide

    According to this news report http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-nottinghamshire-27292918, a jw cut his wrist but was caught before he died. If only a blood transfusion will save his life, he is refusing based on belief as a JW and is supported on that, including his JW father.

    It's funny many religions put suicide as a really bad sin, but in this case it shows on jw standards taking blood is worse then suicide. Where are the scriptures to support that?

    1 Samuel 14. Read the chapter. Saul makes a stupid oath and all his men are so hungry that they eat meat with blood still in it. Saul:

    1. Tells them they are apostates?

    2. Condemns them but leaves it between them and Jehovah?

    3. Kills them?

    The answer is somewhere near 2. Which is why this issue is NOT based on the bible. (Im not a believer)

    i bet the watchtower gang just love reading stories like that. it would have been even better if the guy had sliced his member off.

    They don't exist....just like almost everything else WT bases it's ridiculousness on.

    In Watchtower convoluted theology the major JW sins are probably in this order.....

    1. Becoming an Apostate.

    2. Taking blood.

    3. Probably suicide.

    4. Probably celebrating holidays or your birthday.

    5. Probably smoking.

    JW's are not allowed to acknowledge that pedophiles exist in their religion so being a pedophile probably wouldn't make the top 10 list of major JW sins.

    Of course, the Granddaddy of them all, fornication. To the jokehovians, that is just below apostasy but worse than anything else short of apostasy. The only exemptions are pedophiles that molest children if they are doing it to ruin the children's lives (making it so much worse) and they are able to hide it.

    Well, if this man wanted to kill himself anyway what was the incentive to accept blood? Better to die for refusing it and be in line for a ressurrection....
