The JWs do not believe in hell and they believe if you die before Armageddon then you paid for your sins and you will be resurrected after he kills all the non JWs on Earth. Now the problem with that is if you think that Armageddon isn't going to happen before you die then you have a free pass to do whatever. That's why they are always setting dates that are close.
If they were to say that Jehovah came to them and told them the end was going to happen in 2075 then most people know they won't live that long so they automatically make it in no matter what they have done so there is no need to knock on doors begging for donations.
Either way they are still using fear to get you to do what they want. They took the fear of hell away but replaced it with a fear of a violent death that is getting ready to happen at any time. All religions are based on fear but yet they convince you he is a God of love. What a joke.
One of many Christian death cults; insistent that their particular take on a book of myths is correct and everybody else's is wrong.

You're absolutely right - what a joke.

Back in my door knocking days we would explain the fear of God as a fear of displeasing him, not actual fearing him. Like you love him so much and he's done so much for you that you're scared you might let him down in some way. That reasoning is pretty stupid tho and that's not the way the bible uses the word fear. It's fear that he's going to kill you and burn you in hell forever fear.
What brought your door knocking days to an end?

My daughter had this experience at school: Some kids were trying to get her to do something that she knew she was not supposed to do and she refused to do it...they came back with, "What's the matter are you afraid of your parents...she replied, "no I'm not afraid of them I love them and I'm afraid if I do what you want me to do it will hurt my parents.
It is similar with Jehovah, the scriptures encourage Christians to LOVE God with their whole being that should prevent them from doing anything to hurt God!
Scared religion is not worth 5 cents but Religion based on LOVE is worth a lot more!

Give an Atheist group a 71 billion dollar budget each year and I promise you they will do a lot more that any religion ever thought of doing.
The yearly cost of religious tax exemptions is 71 billion every year in lost taxes.

There are many Atheist charities, you should Google them before you scream we don't do anything.
Religious groups are tax exempt but we as individuals pay our taxes yet you Evolution promoters want to waste our taxes to teach evolution nonsense! That is not funny!

So why bother with Hell?

There are plenty of religions that get by without having to invent an imaginary place where all non-believers will be tortured.

I also guess the god of the Bible isn't omnipotent if we can hurt him.

99% of all the different species of flora and fauna that ever existed are now extinct.

You would rather have our kids taught that all of these species were poofed into existence by a magical cosmic mega-being and then allowed to die by that same entity?

Peaple like to see others walking in truth,as well as themselves. I dare say you have heard how the angles in Heaven rejoice when they see one sinner repenting and when they see anyone turning away from sin,and doing what is right.

Proverbs 3:5-6
King James Version (KJV)

5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Ephesians 4:5
King James Version (KJV)

5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,

1 Corinthians 13:4-6
King James Version (KJV)

4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;

Proverbs 12:22
King James Version (KJV)

22 Lying lips are abomination to the Lord: but they that deal truly are his delight.

2 John 1:4
King James Version (KJV)

4 I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father.

God has told us very plainly what He thinks is right. Nobody can mistake this who reads the Bible with an honest heart. But it is sad to see how few men and women care for pleasing God. Many break His commandments continually, and seem to think nothing of it. Some will tell lies, and swear, and quarrel, and cheat, and steal. Others use bad words, never pray to God at all, and never read their Bibles. Others are unkind to their relations, or idle, or gluttonous, or bad-tempered, or selfish. And all these things, whatever people may choose to think, are very wicked and displeasing to the holy God.

In other words, he thinks science (books) are lies written by conspiratorial cheaters and liars with an agenda toward biblical "Truth." Anyone who understands what is written in science texts is an idiot. Answersingenesis, on the other hand, is flawless and pristine. Anyone who differentiates Christian doctrine from reality hates God. And of course, is also an idiot.

For all the times the devout have brought up Nebraska and Piltdown, they never seem to remember that those were dealt with several decades ago. Personally, the reason I never bring up Christians fawning over thousands of bogus Byzantine relics for many hundreds of years is because it is exactly what expect religies to do. What else have they got? Facts, verified history and real artifacts? ROFL!!
I don't find it odd in the least that there are no blockbuster movies like "Raiders of the Lost Basilosaurus" or "Pat Roberson and the Temple of Stromatolites". All they've got is crap like "The Bible on Trial" that isn't even worthy of YouTube.

I think that the Bible Should be taught in schools and I also think that the Ten Commandments should be posted in the schools as well and maybe if kids were reminded of God and taught of him sacrificing his only Son so we could have everlasting life then maybe some of the drug problems and maybe some of the killings would stop.. and ps I think that God should be back in places like the court houses and other government buildings
Amen!
Great post!
But not only teach them about God, but satan also!

You've told this story before, therefor I suspect it is from a Watchtower article.

I go to "MY" Fidg, to see if "I" have milk in it...
"YOU" have to "SEEK" God for yourself for "YOUR" Proof...
The trouble is... What is keeping you from doing that???
I mean... If you really wanted to "KNOW" what we know!
It is only on you...
Seek God, repent... You'll be Glad you did!

I feel the bible should be welcomed everywhere and if there are people who want to study the Bible in school who are we to prevent them. God can be worshipped anywhere and the word will go on forever.
I think if you can realize how arguing about people having the choice to study the bible in school could be somewhat the beginnings of how Hitler burned bibles then persecuted people, you would know how unfruitful your debate is.
We have freedom to do many things in the USA, even study scriptures in the bible at our public schools if we chose. Only those people who don't appreciate the freedom we have in Jesus Christ limit themselves to their own interpretation of how and where it's politically correct to do things and always according to mans laws or for worldly acceptance.
I wish to please God as Jesus always did and Worship him wherever I am and also in Fellowship where two or more are gathered together in Jesus's name even in public schools.
AMEN!
