Favorite Watchtower’s Approved Blood Transfusions

bloodchartAThe Watchtower and Jehovah’s Witnesses in general still cling to the “no blood” mantra. As you will see in this section, that claim is extraordinarily dishonest. The Watchtower has approved the use of all red cell, white cell, platelet and plasma derivatives. The list of blood products Jehovah’s Witnesses can choose to use in good conscience has grown larger and larger over the last three decades. If fact, the list has become so extensive, it’s easier to say what they don’t permit:

  • Whole Blood
  • Red Cells
  • White Cells
  • Platelets

Call to Action!

800px-Oncology_doctor_consults_with_patientA significant effort is underway to reform the blood doctrine. This involves informing and educating all of Jehovah’s Witnesses as to the facts about blood. Much of this is being accomplished through the medical community.

If you are a reform minded Jehovah’s Witness you may be asking yourself…..what can I do?

Likely you have no desire to have a blood transfusion, and neither do we. The question is should we as an organization be making that decision for others? To a growing number of Witnesses, the answer is no.

Appointed Servants of Jehovah’s Witnesses

We call upon you to summon up the courage to carefully investigate the blood issue. We believe that you will find, as we have, that there is little if any biblical basis for the current policies. The evidence will show that the Bible may forbid the eating of blood, but not the taking of it in to “sustain life.” The scriptures must be re-worded to arrive at such a conclusion. In this regard, the following scriptures come to mind:

*** Rbi8 Galatians 1:8 ***
However, even if we or an angel out of heaven were to declare to YOU as good news something beyond what we declared to YOU as good news, let him be accursed.

*** Rbi8 Revelation 22:18-19 ***
If anyone makes an addition to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this scroll; 19 and if anyone takes anything away from the words of the scroll of this prophecy, God will take his portion away from the trees of life and out of the holy city, things which are written about in this scroll.

Jan. 27, 1997 Letter to Dan Sydlik

The following letter was sent to a member of the governing body in 1997 prior to the publishing of any information by AJWRB in the hope that it could be avoided. There was no response and the web site “New Light on Blood” came online the following month.

Dear Brother Sydlik:

Please allow me to introduce myself. I am a third generation Witness who has been associated with the organization for many years, the last decade or so as an elder.

I want to thank you for your years of service on behalf of the brothers and sisters, I appreciate your efforts as do Jehovah and his son Christ Jesus.

As the years have passed, it has become clear that much of what we believed in connection with 1914 has been inaccurate. Recent “new light” about the timing of Jesus’ parable of the sheep and the goats, as well as a “more precise understanding” of the “generation” spoke of by Jesus in his great prophecy are two examples of this.

That the society had made very direct statements about these issues is a matter of record. Representatives of the society indeed often made even stronger statements of their own accord.
