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.

I don't mean imperfections. I mean rooms created by God himself so that his laws can be broken under certain circumstances?
Re: Questions About Jehovah's Witnesses by rottennaija(m): 11:02am On Aug 02
DappaD:

Ask mature questions please.

How do you define matured questions?

Okay so now you're questioning me regards decisions made by Jehovah, yes or no?
If yes, provide evidence for such let's address it using the Bible.

Questions that stir up the thoughts of a person and is not intended for ridicule.

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

When I saw the below in one of their publications, I said to myself, since The greatest unseen treasure is friendship with Jehovah God already,

what will sonship with God be called?

They apply ransom to mean friendship for some, sonship for selected few. That too is adhering to Bible standards strictly grin grin grin grin

John 1:12 he gave authority to become God's children

I think you are deliberately misunderstanding me. This was my question to you...

"Are you aware that there are many examples of God's servants breaking God's laws in certain circumstances?"

And I clearly mentioned that this isn't in respect to imperfection but "rooms created by God himself so that his laws can be broken under certain circumstances?"

Do you think the questions asked so far are meant to RIDICULE you or the JWS?

So the questions below do not stir up thoughts?

Is there any scriptural precedence for the baptism of infant?

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?

Consider a man who is told by his doctors that he must abstain from meat. Would he be obedient if he quit eating meat, but accepted a kidney transplant?”

Is eating meat same as accepting organ transplant?

It is a well know fact that the Bible does not forbid blood transfusion but forbids the eating of blood. Now, where does the bible forbid the transfusion of blood fractions but allows the transfusion of haemoglobin?

Let me save you the stress. Have you realise that you have not actually answer any question but instead you have deflected, ignored and even abandon the questions?

What questions did you expect? Christmas? New years? Hell Fire? Heaven? Those questions are for amateurs. If you want to answer amateur questions, you shouldn't come to nairaland.

Jehovah God has standards which we can find in the Bible. He doesn't go against his standards! smiley

Okay. I've not answered any questions regarding blood transfusion and baptism of children abi ?
Good to note.

@bolded, that's why I said I'm looking forward to mature questions not petty ones.

Let me add one to this, since blood transfusion is synonymous with eating of blood, if A man is DYING of STARVATION, can blood transfusion solve the ISSUE?

Logic can only be applied in the right sense. Anything further from that would be just distorting what is clearly stated.

That's only where it can be applied. Bringing in unrelated things to pass off as logic won't work.

So the questions below do not stir up thoughts?

1. Is there any scriptural precedence for the baptism of infant?

2. 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?

3. Consider a man who is told by his doctors that he must abstain from meat. Would he be obedient if he quit eating meat, but accepted a kidney transplant?”

4. Is eating meat same as accepting organ transplant?

5. It is a well know fact that the Bible does not forbid blood transfusion but forbids the eating of blood. Now, where does the bible forbid the transfusion of blood fractions but allows the transfusion of haemoglobin?

1. The Bible says that people who got baptized were ‘hearing and receiving words’ with understanding. Baptism was for those ‘hearing the word’ , meaning it is for those who have listened and come to understand what the Scriptures are saying.(Acts 2:41)
Something that a young person can do. A baby cannot listen and get the sense of what's being taught.

2. Does not to relate to your question. Wrong use of logic. I want to believe that when you were young at 10,11 you were enrolled in school and wrote exams.

3. Again, wrong use of logic. If the person eats the said organ raw or cooked, does that mean it would serve its purpose in the body or just get digested? ***This reply doesn't support cannibalism

4. No it is not, because the organ is an attachment in the body not to serve as food or nourishment and so it doesn't apply to the blood scenario.

5. I've answered this question regarding blood fractions in previous pages.

Is the above are wrong use of logic, is eating blood (forbidden in the bible) and taking blood transfusion the same thing?

If the doctor ask a man to abstain from alcohol, will it then be accepted to take it through injection?

Does Blood save as food to the body?

There are not. There are scriptural examples of those who heard the truth and got baptized.

I see you asking questions I've already answered. Carry on.
Blood can taken through mouth or through transfusion for sustenance. And that should be avoided by true Christians! (Acts 15:28,29)

The same example can be applied in the case of one whose doctor said he should refrain from alcohol.

As regards destruction of the wicked. It is known.

But the question is, is God against the destruction of the enemies of his people and people who are wicked?

Does taking blood through the mouth and transfusion serve the same purpose?

Did the bible forbid blood transfusion or blood eating?

Jesus baptized at what age?
He got baptized at approximately 30years.
This was to fulfill Daniel's prophecy for Messiah to appear after 69weeks(483years) in the year 29C.E (Daniel 9:24-26)

So Jesus didn't baptise as an infant, despite all his wisdom.

The Bible says ‘abstain from blood’ ! — Acts 15:28,29

Let's assume blood transfusions existed in ancient times, do you think a first century Christian after listening to God's law, would go against it to take blood into his system?

Look closely at all the bolded. That is where you have to think upon. Define a young person? Define people? Define babies? We have studied with infants look at the numerous words you have used to justify that your organization don't baptize infants. The material I posted from the magazine of the organization states MEN and WOMEN. Are 6,7,8,9,10,11,13 year olds men and women?
