    I never thought about the use of the words "blood guilty" till the other day..

    It's an interesting choice of words on their part since "blood" is a touchy subject as it is.

    Its the one of the most offensive thing one could mess with to displease Jehovah if I recall correctly.. and side note one of the most recent issues i have been able to "get over" but it took a very long time.

    Its almost as if they groomed the culture to fear blood, and then twisted it to use at their own discretion. "if you don't go out in service you're blood guilty". essential they have rewritten the statement from the intended meaning, "if you don't do what we tell you, jehovah will hate you".

    I remember those words ''blood guilty'' used over the years. Even as a small child and I admit it, it really invoked fear in you. Thats' nothing but pure manipulation. Just to be a Captain Obvious here, LOLL.

    Anyway, sadly, that 'manipulation' is still paramount and manifest today. With that AM3 broadcast saying ''blood guilty'' by AM3 as he shakes his head as it's being translated to the audience language.

    Beth Sarim - "... it really invoked fear in you..."

    All fundamentalist religions are, at their core, fear-based.

    In the case of the WTS, it's fear of rejection, fear of embarrassment, fear of being alone, and - ultimately - fear of death.
