    Learned a new one today. Jesus ordered that Christians were not to partake of the blood of any living creature, including man. Blood is part of the Soul, which all living things have. ( something else I learned today)

    In Noah's time the commandant was given and repeated in Mose's time. The New Testament supersedes the laws of Moses. However Jesus repeated the commandment.

    Acts 15: 28, 29

    Acts 21: 25

    This command is not to take blood into oneself for any reason, by any means. That would include transfusions.

    Fortunately there are alternate means to blood for surgery and life threatening events.

    This is where religion and I part ways when it comes to certain topics like this.

    Go right ahead. I wonder how many Christians will overlook that when they need surgery.

    You are not a Christian feel free to break any command of God's you want. BUT if as I believe he exists you pay. This is for Christians or people that claim to be Christians.

    Once again, there are alternate means to provide the fluids one needs in an operation or other blood lose situation. There is no reason to condemn oneself to everlasting death over this. Which is what one is doing if they take in blood.

    Not if you do not believe or follow the Bible. Christian means you obey Jesus and his commandments, you believe in the Bible. I have provided the passages, it is clear as day what they say.

    Christians do not get to just ignore the inconvenient commands given to them. Remember the wide road to damnation and the narrow cramped road to ever lasting life?

    Uh no. You seem to have confused what makes one a Christian.

    You are the confused one. Christians believe in Jesus, the son of God and they follow his commandments. One of which is not to partake of blood. Jesus commandments are in the Bible.

    You do not get to just ignore the inconvenient parts. And if you do not believe in Jesus and do not attempt to follow the Bible you are not a Christian.
