    I read up on the blood transfusions issue one aspect is that if God has "called" you who are humble human servants to refuse Him. Has echoes of my claim re climate change and respecting God's creatures.

    I don't see the connection. Rejecting blood transfusions can cost human life, so JWs are guilty of gross theological malpractice.

    They consider getting sick and dying as God's plan so transfusions and preventing death is opposing God. As JWs are a recent mob and the Scriptures were written maybe thousands of years before transfusions were thought of I can't imagine how transfusions could be mentioned. Maybe the Scriptures were referring to consuming blood.

    But then, why wear glasses and oppose God's plan for weak eyesight? Or maybe transfusions were part of God's plan to save lives?

    That's exactly right.

    That's exactly right.
    BUT if the Scriptures were inspired by an all-knowing God then we would expect them to cover all future situations. Unless we rely on a hierarchy like RCC or new prophets like Mohammed or Joseph Smith who both ordained multiple wives. When Hunter Biden took on his brother's widow it was frowned upon although it is in the Scriptures. What has caused all the confusion the Tower of Babel?
