DappaD:

Words in italics show you're looking for an argument. So I'll ignore.

Words in bold however are good questions.
Jehovah's Witnesses will NOT accept blood in whole or any of its four major components — red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma, platelets.

However there are minor blood fractions which just act as antibodies in the blood and so no longer represent the life of the human being when considered, such include immunoglobulins and albumin. So a Christian can decide to reject these minor fractions or accept them since it no longer represents the life of the human being based on Bible trained conscience.
Jehovah's Witnesses can also accept nonblood volume expanders and other bloodless alternatives available.

Besides, transfusion of blood or its major components isn't a guarantee of life after going through the process, as the person still stands a chance to get more complications for himself or even die — so that's why Jehovah's Witnesses heed Bible advice to “abstain from blood” – Genesis 9:4, Leviticus 17:11,12, Deuteronomy 12:23, Acts 15:28,29.

Major blood components............ Minor blood fractions.............. are bolded

if there is major blood components, what are the Minor blood components, if there is minor blood fractions what are the major blood fractions.

That's why the question was asked that what is the difference between blood components and blood fractions . It is only when you answer this you can attempt question below.....Are blood fractions components of blood?


Concerning the first three questions. I leave you to open discussion with the members of the organization you belong.

It's obvious that JWs don't adhere to Bible standards strictly.


Awake November 22 1984.......What makes a religion right is its total adherence to God’s Word. Whether our religion meets this criterion or not can only be determined by open-mindedly comparing it with the Bible.

The minor fractions act as antibodies so it's not viewed as a component of blood.

Bounus questions for you:

Do JWs baptize INFANTS?

Do JWs consider humans aged 6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13 as (Men/Women) or INFANTS when baptized?

Are JWs hypocrites on this ISSUE of INFANT baptism?

The backbone of the whole thing is for the person in question to fully understand the decision he/she is about to make concerning dedication to Jehovah and baptism. A child of 10 years is able to understand these things — especially when the parents began to teach him/her the Bible from an early age. Jehovah's Witnesses do not baptize babies, as those in Christendom do because children of 0-5years aren't able to fully comprehend and understand certain things.

This what you typed below.......

The question the above raise is, are the minor blood fractions acting as antibodies components of blood? I can't be letter A and be acting as letter A. I can only be letter B but acting as letter A

My answers are crystal clear. If you want to keep finding holes in them, that's on you man. wink

They can be holes in your answers. That's why further questions are asked.

Is there any scriptural precedence for the baptism of infant?

Under what circumstances can a Jw breaks God's law?

Infants are those who cannot fully understand and grasp the requirements for dedication and baptism. A child of 10 can UNDERSTAND what is required. But Jehovah's Witnesses in general do not baptize babies/children who have no knowledge about Jehovah.

Is there a biblical precedence for it? Can a child of 10 be given drivers licence or allowed to Marry or pay tax even if they understand what is required?

I believe infant aged 6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13 are able to fully understand and comprehend certain things. Go and study cognitive development well well.

When you were at age 6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13 do you understand and fully comprehend what is called the HUMAN RIGHTS as defined by the UN articles?

If an elderly man can walk and still hit his feet against a stone despite the number of years he has been on earth, how much more infants that can't distinguished his left slippers from the right slippers or can cross a gutter or drainage on his own.

Your definition above for INFANTS is the one used specially by JWs? I hear you. Now you are switching children/babies. No problem.

Look what did your organization put out there that others do but the scriptures say it is wrong concerning baptism? Look the image below...

From your publication I can see INFANT in one corner, MEN and WOMEN on another corner. Do you too?

Re: Questions About Jehovah's Witnesses by rottennaija(m): 10:40am On Aug 02

For baptising infant?

Okay. I'll believe that when you were at those mentioned ages, you were enrolled in school and taught subjects which you grasped. In the same vein, basic Bible teachings required for dedication and baptism are easy to grasp by young ones, just not babies.

I don't want this to brew into further arguments so this will probably be my last reply to you on this.

Catholics are the only religion that baptises infant. Is it right them to group all other religious groups and attribute the same to them?

I believe this is a trick question.
Circumstances you mean?
There should not be any room/circumstance for breaking God's law.

My brother, any question that doesn't ask about Trinity, hellfire, immortality of the soul etc. All those simply questions JWs are trained to and expected to come across will either be trick questions or questions you claimed brings arguments.

That's a well known fact.

Yes due to our imperfections, it's sometimes a struggle to adhere strictly to God's standards but there is no room for breaking God's law. It's as stern as possible.
