So, if Christians are right, where do the Jewish, Jehovah Witnesses, go when they die?

Just curious. Buddhist, Hindu, Jewish, Jehovah Witnesses....

If beyond a shadow of a doubt non-beleivers go to hell?

  • This scripture will answer your question
    John 3:16"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. NASB
    And a paraphrase of the above verse:
    John 3:16 (The Message) 16-18"This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn't go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person's failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to him.

  • Jehovah's Witnesses are Christians (and so are Catholics and LDS, before you go there). But it really doesn't matter, since most denominations believe they're the only ones that are really right, and while they won't outright admit it, they hint that all the other denoms are going, too, because they're "doing it wrong".

  • I always believed that as long as you believed in God, followed the 10 commandments, prayed for forgiveness, etc. then you were going to matter what your denomination is.

  • Jehovah's Witnesses do not accept Jesus Christ as their personal savior. They don't. If you don't, you are not a Christian. So, how does that make them Christians?

  • Mommy H2, not according to the bible---you have to accept Jesus Christ as your personal savior-being good, praying, and following the rules will not get you there.

    John 3:16

  • Jehovah's Witnesses do not accept Jesus Christ as their personal savior.

    Of course they do - all you've shown here is you don't actually know what a JW is.

  • Couldn't agree more with NotPanicking you obviously are speaking of a religion that you have no knowledge of.

  • I was raised Catholic...we are not Christians and everyone is going to hell except Catholics who have died with out sin. Thankfully, forgiveness is easy to obtain...just ask! Also, Catholics don't quote scripture. (Thank Goodness!) We have enough to think about already. At least that's how I was raised.

  • Umm, you are either highly uneducated about JWs, have never met one or simply prefer to buy in to propaganda, either way you obviously don't know what you're talking about on that front... JWs ARE Christian and DO accept Jesus as their savior...

    Now, IF Christians are right then my question would be "Which Christians?" Out of all the denominations out there there are more than a few beliefs about the afterlife. When and IF Christians can decide once and for all what the afterlife actually contains, then maybe there could be an answer to your question. But since different denominations have different ideas and beliefs one blanket statement would be impossible.
