Jehovah Witness Refuses Blood Transfusion and Dies

by randy on November 30th, 2007

Quoted from the CNN article, “…he believes with the transfusion he would be unclean and unworthy.”

This is a very clear statement that proves this young boy was trying to attain his salvation through works. His fear was that the blood transfusion would make him unworthy and unclean. Doesn’t the bible teach that we are already unworthy and unclean? Apparently JW’s deny not only the deity of Christ but His work on the cross as well. (Gal 2:16; Eph 2:8-9)

Besides this brings to mind a familiar passage…

“What man is there among you who has one sheep, and if it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will not lay hold of it and lift it out? Of how much more value then is a man than a sheep?” (Matthew 12:11-12a)

If this young man would have received a blood transfusion JW doctrine states that his family and the watchtower cult should excommunicate and condemn him. What does Jesus have to say? “But if you had known what this means, I desire mercy and not sacrifice,’ you would not have condemned the guiltless.” (Matthew 12:7)
