Did you know that Jehovah's Witnesses believe...

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

Did you know that although people think that Jehovah's Witnesses are these pushy preachy people, that they believe AND PREACH that people who aren't Jehovah's Witness and who do not know "the truth" will have the chance to learn about and decide to accept or reject God for 100 years after Armageddon.

I think it's great that they have faith that God is not this cold hearted being who enjoys watching people make bad choices and burn in hell. They also don't believe hell is a place filled with fire, they believe that it's just death without an after life.

Much better then some people who think that you're automatically doomed if you don't believe in God. He is not stupid. He knows that this world we live in is filled with fallacies and deciete. He knows good people are going to be skeptical.


P.S. I am completely agnostic and open in my views in all aspects.

As I said before to the other poster. They do only believe those get into Heaven, but they are part of the government. The rest of us will live here on Earth like the Bible says.

 YUP....... This..... I already know I don't have a chance so I gave up trying to be good a long time ago. I don't break the law and I don't harm other people but that wont get me in heaven.......

Quoting Anonymous:

Ya, and only 144 thousand people will ever go to heaven.  

You know.  Considering how many people are on the planet, and those that have come before me, the odds of being one of those is SO SLIM!!

I don't have even a small desire to be good enough to compete on that level.

Thanks anyway.  Pass.

I don't believe in "God" so I have no opinion. It's nice that people believe in something that comforts them and brings them peace of mind.

 I don't care what they believe, I just wish they would stop knocking on my door.

If you die and God is real and he knows you're a good person who just didn't believe (which is totally understandable) and gives you the chance to learn and accept him, do you think you will or will you reject him?

They are pushy preachy people.  And they SHOULDN'T believe that hell is filled with fire.  That is simply Dante's version of it.  No more, no less.

Get a "No Tresspassing" sign?

I think it's annoying too, but they are only trying to do what the Bible tells them. I've also never had an experience where one was being pushy like the stories I hear on here though.

What? I know plenty of Jehovah's Witnesses and they all plan on their kids going to college...

Quoting squeekers:

 They don't follow God, They call him Jehovah. Yes, they do believe the end is coming, so they don't like their children going on to college. They do not want their children to hang out with "worldly" people, they just stay with those of the same religion.

That's like saying all Mexican's are ocean swimming, desert crossing immigrants or all black people eat watermelon and fried chicken or all people on PA abuse the system while rolling in money and cooking meth in their kitchens. It's so stupid to stereotype people.
