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.

Friends and Family

2013-convention-thumb-300x300If you have been a Jehovah’s Witness for any period of time, you probably have many friends and family members who are also Witnesses and likely feel some sense of obligation towards these individuals, since you now possess information that is potentially lifesaving.

How can you go about reaching these persons? If the relationship is close enough, you may be able to speak with them directly. This is the most effective way. You might begin by asking them if they understand the changes made to the blood policy over the years, or by using some of the specific questions AJWRB members have posed. You could say that you are troubled by the thought of children dying over something when there are so many contradictions and unanswered questions.

Another option is for you to anonymously send information to your friends and relatives. The article “Do Jehovah’s Witnesses Really Abstain From Blood?” can be downloaded and mailed to friends and relatives, along with the “Questions for those who Accept the Society’s Position.” If you do not feel safe sending this material to your friends and family members, we suggest mailing it to them from another zip code or city.

You may personally feel powerless to reform the Watchtower Society. But you can make a big difference in the lives of individuals. No one else need die senselessly, but individuals like you must be willing to reach out and be heard – you can make a difference. Support for this wretched policy is drying up among Jehovah’s Witnesses and they cannot disfellowship all of us.

Blood Saved Their Lives

reform3Hi, I am not going to give any names but want all to know the following information. I have been a JWs for 40 years since I was 6 years old, 2 weeks ago I got the reform blood information from the net, and totally agree with what they say as I have experienced it myself and seen so much I could write volumes on it.

Anyhow, last week I printed out all the information 135 pages of it and got it bound up in a volume binder, I photo copied it and did another volume, and gave this to my father to read only to find this very week my Step mother was rushed to hospital with a serious problem, while having keyhole surgery the surgeon accidentally pulled a vain that was stuck to the back of an organ, there is no way that he could have avoided it as he could not see it, and the next thing it burst and blood was gushing everywhere.
