As you probably know, this is me and you can imagine that the old brainwashing sucks for me sometimes.
I don't believe anything wts says about medical care, I don't agree, and I have seen the proof they are wrong. I've been out for a long time. Yet, there are those old rusty thoughts hiding in the hidden corners of my brain.
Lately, while having medical care, the thought, "Using blood products is greedy," kept popping into my head. (I hate that.) I couldn't remember a specific teaching, only that it was told to me.
The naturalist Pliny (a contemporary of the apostles) and the second-century physician Aretaeus report that human blood was a treatment for epilepsy. Tertullian later wrote: "Consider those who with greedy thirst, at a show in the arena, take the fresh blood of wicked criminals … and carry it off to heal their epilepsy."
Dumbasses. Creeps. A big middle finger up for messing with my brain.
