Pascal's wager with a threat of torture on the side, how nice. You bible thumpers sure do love torture fantasies. It makes me think you may be closet S&M freaks.
I keep asking this, but none of you seem to want to answer me. How is it that your god loves to torture his creations? How is it possible that humans have a greater capacity for forgiveness than your "loving" god?
(1) No! we do not "NOT" want you
to go to punishment!
(2) Whether it be Hell, or just outer darkness...
You will suffer knowing you had a chance, and blew it!

Imagine spending an eternity... knowing we were right!
We are! We're telling you... Seek God with all your heart!
You WILL be glad you did!

No, no, no. I'm asking *you*, not the Watchtower.
How do *you* know? If it is just a feeling or faith, then you have no more insight than any other religious person.
Do you realize that every single Christian church claims that they also are on the right path?
Hell, Muslims are willing to kill and die for their God. If it is just a matter of how strong your faith is then they win all the way to the bank.
I'm trying to get at the reasons you believe you are in the right church, or that any church is right. That is the root of the problem. Reason.
Faith lacks it.

So what is your reason? Not the Watchtower's reason, your reason.
First of all I am thoroughly convienced (not by blind faith) that the Bible is indeed the word of God. One is it's eternal harmony.
There are several other reasons that convences me that we(Jehovhh's Witnesses) do indeed have the truth! One is we (me included) base everything we teach on God's word the Bible. John 8:31,32 17:3 17:17 and 1John 5:19
Is that better?

Jeremiah 25:32,33
Dead bodies from one end of the earth to the other end
“This is what Jehovah of armies has said,‘Look! A calamity is going forth from nation to nation, and a great tempest itself will be roused up from the remotest parts of the earth. 33 And those slain by Jehovah will certainly come to be in that day from one end of the earth clear to the other end of the earth. They will not be bewailed, neither will they be gathered up or be buried. As manure on the surface of the ground they will become.’
34 “Howl, YOU shepherds (religious leaders), and cry out! And wallow about, YOU majestic ones of the flock, because YOUR days for slaughtering and for YOUR scatterings have been fulfilled, and YOU must fall like a desirable vessel! 35 And a place to flee to has perished from the shepherds, and a means of escape from the majestic ones of the flock. 36 Listen! The outcry of the shepherds, and the howling of the majestic ones of the flock, for Jehovah is despoiling their pasturage. 37 And the peaceful abiding places have been rendered lifeless because of the burning anger of Jehovah. 38 He has left his covert just like a maned young lion, for their land has become an object of astonishment because of the maltreating sword and because of his burning anger.”

Absolutely nothing academic about the Bible. I'm not saying it is completely without value, but teaching it in school? Well, not if it's a public school. Sorry.

Here's my experience on why they join. After knocking on a hundred doors they come across a person with no friends, no money, no education and they are nice to them. They offer to come back, offer to be their friends and bring them into their group. They tell them how evil religion is and show all the bad things that religion has done and they offer something different.
They explain Christmas is a pagan holiday, explain the Christmas tree and things like how it is consider sun worship because the days get longer. They show how Hell and the Trinity isn't bible teachings and they they kill them with kindness.
All it is basically religion has done such a shitty job over the years so something new must be right and once they join its hard to leave so instead, idiots like Knows Dick just vomit the same crap out of their mouths because the more who believe it the less stupid they look. That's why he copy/paste crap because he's to stupid to think on his own. He has to much invested to ever admit he's wrong. That's why he won't respond to posts.
u could have figured it out, but its not muich different than the reasons ppl join other churches. its all about the social part of it for most, the actual teachings of the bible dont matter to them as it shows in their actions, or in this case it shows with them not taking the actions the book tells them to take. and nice call on the christmas info, although they wont admit it, christmas was celebrated long before any christ came to be cuz of other gods and different beliefs in the sun. as far as hell and the trinity, hell is mentioned but the trinity is just something made up from certain little sects and the JW's are right by showin that it is all made up but the sad part is they insert their invisible friend in to the slot that the trinity takes in the other congregation. i dont see how anyone can believe in the trinity knowin the bible mentions nothing of a trinity at all, it plainly states 3 seperate entities workin together as one. it doesnt say u have a 3 headed god like the trinity is suggestion.

What? Your comment,(to me) is nonsense. The Bible states it is wrong to add to or take away. God gave us all "Free Will". God will NOT make you do what is right, or wrong, He only tells us HIS WILL. We have the right to choose our will or God's. ALL will be judged on Judgement Day & everything we said or did while here on earth will be judged accordingly! This is my understanding & belief, but I also feel if you are going state the Bible, you should search First, then state it correctly!
go and read the bible and then u might be able to understand what im sayin then. i find it funny that the believers hardly ever know anything in the bible except for jesus died for me and all i gotta do is believe and get baptised and im goin to heaven. the problem is they fail to read all the fine print in the book just as ppl dont read fine print in contracts. not one single person i know of in america is a real christian, no matter if u say u are or not. i can show the scriptures to prove it cuz i do actually know whats in the book but when u do point it out in the bible they will still ignore it cuz they think they can change gods word to what suits them just as u do everyday yourself. hypocrisy is worse than sinning u know, all the christian hypocrites will be in hell with the atheist if the abrahamic god is the real one out of all the others, that is if there is a god at all anyway.

Because Jesus said in the New Testament, "If you love Me, you will keep my Father's Commandments, but the Greatest of ALL commands IS LOVE." Not being under the Old Law means no more "Blood Sacrificing." JESUS was the LAST & ULTIMATE BLOOD SACRIFICE!
well why are u not killin ppl workin on the sabboth or killin the gay ppl? why do u ignore these commandments of the Father? are u so in tune with them that u can just choose which ones u want to use and which ones u can say well jesus done away with those? its either all or none whether u like it or not and if its not all then u my friend are a hypocrit and u shall join us heathens in hell. if u beat me there save me a spot and vice versa.

*"Where does the Bible forbid "another Gospel of Jesus"?
Galations
1:6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ, to another gospel: 1:7 Which is not another; but there are some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, should preach any other gospel to you than that which we have preached to you, let him be accursed. 1:9 As we said before, so I say now again, If any [man] preacheth any other gospel to you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

2 Corinthians
11:3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. 11:4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or [if] ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with [him].

*"What laws and dates?"
I cannot remember the exact quote, and my Libronix Digital Library System
tends to return either too many verses, or not enough... LOL
Read the Catholic version of the 10 Commandments
http://atheism.about.com/od/tencommandments/a...
Notice the Catholics removed #2, and split #10...
plus they changed the Sabbath from Sat, to Sun.

Ask yourself this...
Did Jesus not do it all on the Cross?
What more do you need than what was written (John 3:16-19)?
Rejoyce IN Jesus Christ... Not Joseph Smith (a crooked man)!

My Dad (a mormon) seen the Light, repented, and was saved,

He's in Heaven now... Amen!

u tell us your thoughts and we tell u our thoughts...the only difference is your thoughts have no proof other than personal faith but ours on the other hand has plenty of real solid tangible proof. we cant help that u ignore it and wont take the time to really look for truth.

and i challenge any single christian here to tell me the scripture that says u will go to heaven. im not sayin a scripture that says u will be saved becuz saved does not mean heaven no matter how hard u try to make it be. not one single verse in the bible says we can go to heaven but on the flip side there are many that says no man shall ever enter the gates of heaven. so when u find the scripture that says we are gonna go to heaven let me know which one it is cuz id like to read it myself.

i get a laugh out of john 3:13 myself. jesus himself said no one has ever ascended in to heaven except he that came from heaven. but i do have a good question about it...i wonder why jesus never knew of enoch or elijah. the OT states that god took them both up to heaven. kinda funny your prophet and the son of god didnt even know what the old testament had already claimed of those 2 guys. honestly, how can u all really believe such stupidity that is written all through the bible? the divine inspiration cant even match its own stories up from one testament to the other. do any of u know what the bible says of false prophets? and dont any of u all see just how false jesus' prophecies have came to be? u all really should ask yourselves some real questions about your beliefs instead of just believing blindly. if u are gullible about one thing u are gullible about any is what ive always heard so u might wanna watch out about what ppl u allow in to your lives b4 u get taken for everything u got.

Let me be first, Jews don't believe that Jesus was born yet, but as long as they stick to the laws of the Bible, there's a very Good chance they'll make into heaven. If you're a Christian and you have accepted Jesus into your life, you will be guaranteed into the Gates of Heaven. I don't know about Catholics but certainly if your any other religion and stick to the wrong laws, you won't make it into heaven.

i still dont see the verse that says u will make it to heaven. u cant just say u are goin to go to heaven u know. tell me the verse and then we can talk cuz from what u just said here u dont know that much about it all. if the new testament is real then the jews will not have any chance at all if they are living right becuz just to be saved u have to accept jesus as the savior and the jews do not do that. the bible does not say good deeds get u in to heaven, it says u have to accept jesus first and foremost if u are a believer of the new testament. u could be the best morally sound person to ever live but if u say u dont believe in jesus then guess what, u my friend shall be tortured for eternity, no matter what deeds u did on earth.

if u havent read it all i reccomend u do. once u are done just drop by and tell us about how it inspired u to not believe it. the problem is most ppl that believe dont even know what they are required to do to get in to heaven but i actually wanted to be a preacher at one time but then i did the worst thing i could possible do....i read the bible. almost instantly became atheist, i did make it almost to the new testament b4 i completely let go of my invisible friend in heaven for a more concrete and factual belief system.
