Recently I've been researching Jehovah's Witnesses and their beliefs and found out that they don't believe in blood transfusions. So, I've asked one of my friends who is a JW as to what is the reason for this, and so far, they had always directed me to a bible verse that is in their bible.
Clearly, I wasn't getting anywhere and so far, it's pretty much frustrating to even make my friend give me reasonable reason. When I was getting somewhere, even a smidgen, they would answer with a question. So you can get why I'm getting a little frustrated.
So, why do Jehovah's Witnesses always answer questions through the bible?
The reason I've asked this question is because I'm trying to get people (the friend stated above is one of them) I know who are JWs that their religion is surely not what it seems to be.
I've read Crisis of Conscience by Raymond Franz and let's just say it is the most shocking thing I've read. Ever.
It felt like I reading a horror story but the events actually happened to people. Like not with monsters and ghosts, but mere ruining their lives.
Also, is there any advice or tips that can be given to help me do this?
I really don't want these people I know experience what these people in CoC experienced.
