BIBLICAL REASONS WHY JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES REFUSE BLOOD TRANSFUSION.
When we asked why Jehovah’s Witnesses do not accept blood transfusion even when medical experts have proven that it is safe and a process of saving lives under critical medical conditions,Jehovah’s Witnesses took a copy of Bible,and opened to Leviticus 17:11 which says ”For life of the flesh is the blood….It is the blood that makes atonement by means of the life in it”. And then said ”Blood is life”!
Again they opened another Bible book. And this time,they read Deuteronomy 12:23 ”Just be firmly resolved not to eat the blood,because,the blood is life,and you must not eat the life with the flesh.” Therefore,Jehovah’s Witnesses are firmly resolved to obey God’s law,at the expense of their own life! What a people!!
WHAT HAS EATING OF BLOOD GOT TO DO WITH BLOOD TRANSFUSION?
In answering the question above,Jehovah’s Witnesses used the questions : ”If you don’t want to take poison with your mouth,will injecting it through your veins into your body make the poison to kill you? When a patient is unable to take food through his mouth,can he also get a supplement from drips through his veins?” Then we became speechless,seeing their reasons. Yes,even medical experts and Doctors agree that anything that passes through the veins gets to the body as food. Therefore,blood transfusion which is transferred into the body through the veins is a way of giving patients blood to eat,thereby,disobeying the giver of life.
Hey,did you notice that the Biblical quotations raised by Jehovah’s Witnesses in defense of their objection to blood transfusion are the laws given to Israelite? How on earth does that have anything to do with our modern people today? we asked? ”Yes,this law was actually given to the nation of Israelite,but Always remember that God’s laws stand forever” Said Jehovah’s Witnesses. ”See how the early Apostles of Christ took the law in their own time in the Bible book of Act 15:28,29” they continued. ”It mentions things that Christians must avoid such as ”Things sacrificed to idols,blood,what is strangled, and from sexual immorality’‘. It says in conclusion that if we abstain from these things,we prosper,good health to our us.”Today we reject things strangled,immorality,and things sacrificed to idols. Why would we accept all of these and reject the law to avoid taking blood in any form”
From the above discussion with Jehovah’s Witnesses on their rejection of blood transfusion,we could see that their reasons are actually Biblical. The Biblical reasons why Jehovah’s Witnesses refuse blood transfusion made our mouth shut up from raising any further argument on this Issue!!!
