If one Rav paskens somemthing is Asur Deoraisa and another Paskens totaly mutar, beshas hadechak is it better to get a non jew to do it or a jew whose rav holds its muttar?

For example, if a certain city has a machlokes on an eruv (where the tzad isur holds deoraisa) and a mohel forgot to bring his knife to a baby's house for a milah on shabos, is it better to get a non jew to carry the baby/knife or for a jew who carries to do it?

Other examples of such situations are welcome in the comments.

  • the answers/comments on that question were dancing around the issue by suggesting other ways to open the can or questioning how you would come to a beshas hadechak at all. This question is much clearer and the answers there do not address this question at all. – SE is Evil - Support Monica Feb 25 '16 at 20:39
  • why would a mohel not be able to carry a knife on shabbos without an eruv? – Dude Feb 28 '16 at 14:29

    @Dude Because carrying outside of an Eruv is prohibited on Shabbat. Are you saying since Milah is Doche Shabbat he can even carry a knife there? That is not the Halakha. Accd to that you could even go chop down trees to build a fire to forge steel into a knife. The Halakha is you can only do the direct acts of the Milah. – Double AA Feb 28 '16 at 14:45
