Died For Her Religious Beliefs..
A follower of the Jehovah’s Witnesses , a Christian sect gave birth to a set of twins but died from excessive loss of blood for she refused a blood transfusion according to her religion..
According to the Jehovah’s Witnesses, those who have blood transfusion will be automatically branded as outcast. Being forced out or die but she chose death.
This is very sad day. I would value life more important than faith or religion. We have been sold with alot of stories of life after death and many have misplaced faith and die for nothing. Many do not question their leaders but just follow blindly like those religious cults.
She died because they believed that they should not eat blood or have a blood transfusion as blood is the essence of life.
Is not life more important than some religious belief? If your life could be saved by modern medicine, then it is God’s wish. If after that blood transfusion and you still die,then you can believe that it is not God’s will.
There was a pastor, who read from the old Testament which stated that the blood of the animals are the life force and they should not eat them. Instead , they should pour it into the ground.
Since that day , he would not eat chicken or meat if he see blood on them. I do not agree with him but since he was the pastor, there was nothing I could do about him. I ate the blood and I don’t feel any lesser as a Christian.
This is what I am fed up of following this religion when others tell you cannot eat this and that and you sin and cannot go to Heaven.
We don’t have to follow the dietary laws of the old Testament. If others want to follow, so be it.If they don’t want to eat anything except plain bread and water, that is their business.
There was a case of another pastor who told one of his congregations bitten by a poisonous snake ,not to go to the hospital but he prayed over him and asked him to trust God alone.
After one day , he got worse and was send to the hospital . If he did not go and died, would that pastor be accountable for his death?
These people have misplaced faith and tested God. Even Jesus was tested by Satan to jump from the tallest building but He did not?
How can these ordinary mortal beings be greater than Jesus? There are many other cases where people died because their pastor preached them the wrong faith.
