Jehovah`s Witness/another question for you

Question
You said in one of your prior responses that  there is no hell because God would never be so cruel (or something to that effect)So if God would never be that cruel, why would he give the knowledge and power to human men to come up with life saving techniques (blood transfusions and organ transplants)only to forbid them to use them????? That makes no sense, and if makes no sense than it is not true. Please refrain from a disrespectful response because this question may challenge you. Thank you.

Answer
Hello again,

The Bible helps us to see that there is no hellfire. God is love (1 John 4:8) and he would be guilty of double jeopardy if he sentenced people to be burned forever and ever for sins that were already acquitted and paid for when they died (Romans 6:7, 23).  Plus the Bible says the dead doesn't know anything, so how can they even feel pain or be tortured? (Ecc 9:5)  Makes no sense.

Think about it, if God loved people so much that he sent his son to die so that we can live, (John 3:16) why would he then turn around and torture people forever?  Makes no sense.

God does not act wickedly and unjust (Job 34:10; Romans 2:11; Ps 33:5)

God said what will happen to the ones who were wicked, it wasn't that they would be burned forever and ever, no he simply said they would be annihilated, or destroyed. (Ps 145:20)

Why didn't he tell Adam he was going to burn in Hell forever when he sinned?  No this is what he said to Adam:

Gen 3:19 "In the sweat of your face you will eat bread until you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken. For dust you are and to dust you will return."  

When wicked people were making sacrifices to false God's and burning their children in fire, if Jehovah had a burning hell already set in place that he sent folks to, why would he say what they were doing was something he had not commanded and that had not come up into his heart?

Jer 7:31 "And they have built the high places of To′pheth, which is in the valley of the son of Hin′nom, in order to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire, a thing that I had not commanded and that had not come up into my heart."


Also at Rev. 12:12, Satan has a short time left and is why he's so angry.  If Satan is going to be destroyed, he can't also be sticking people with pitchforks in a lake of fire forever and ever.

Jehovah God is not that way, Satan is, and he lies on Jehovah.  

Jehovah gave people free will and a brain, so if they come up with things, it doesn't mean it's something he approves of.  And he never allowed the taking in of blood, it was always forbidden. (Acts 15:20; Lev 17:10)

Men also come up with things like men lying with men, and they also commit adultery and fornication, incest, bestiality, and other things that isn't approved by God, just because man is able to come up with things doesn't mean it's approved by God. (1 Cor 6:9,10)

People also come up with contraptions to torture people too, that doesn't mean it's OK with God.

When the people of old took it upon themselves to build a city and tower, Jehovah didn't approve of it, but they used their abilities to build it.  (Gen 11:1-9)


The angels, God made them in heaven, he didn't make them to materialize as humans and marry women and have kids.  But that's what they did.  But God did not approve of it.  (Gen 6:2,4; 2 Pet. 2:4; Jude 6)

So just because someone has the ability to do something, again doesn't mean it's ok with Jehovah.

You must not be reading the things I put, I can barely keep up with your replies so that let's me know you aren't really examining all the scriptures and things I put.

On to your next question....

I can answer questions related to Jehovah's Witnesses and the Bible. I love learning the truth from the Bible and helping others to learn that truth as well. I don't know everything but will answer from the Bible, I like to use illustrations as well to help a person relate to what is being said. The Bible has the last say so over any person.

Experience

I am an active baptized Jehovah's Witness and Jehovah is Almighty God,(Ps. 83:18) and his Son Jesus Christ died so that everyone exercising faith in him may not be destroyed but have everlasting life. (John 3:16). I support my fellow Witnesses on this board who are real, and Jehovah's worldwide visible organization, including the Governing Body of Jehovah's Witnesses. As God is not a God of disorder, and there could not be order if there were not ones to take the lead. Taking the lead and having a leader is not the same, our leader is Jesus Christ, and in order to have unity and order, there has to be arrangements in place. As the first century Christians had, there were men taking the lead, (Acts 6:1-6) as with Moses, (Exodus 18:21) and in our day, in following with Bible truths, we do the same. When people twist that around to us worshiping men, it is just a straight out lie! Why would the Scripture at 1 Tim. 3:1-10, 12, 13 give the criteria for men reaching out for an office of overseer if that was not meant to be? (Phil 1:1, Acts 20:17, 28, Eph. 4:11, 12, 2 Cor. 3:4-6). If we were not supposed to have men who take the lead, why was this scripture penned? James 5:14-15 "Is there anyone sick among YOU? Let him call the older men of the congregation to [him], and let them pray over him, greasing [him] with oil in the name of Jehovah. 15 And the prayer of faith will make the indisposed one well, and Jehovah will raise him up. Also, if he has committed sins, it will be forgiven him."

Organizations
If you have legit questions and want to know the truth, please ask, but if you are here to spread your lies and twists of the scriptures or get your falsehoods out, you may get rejected! The truth is from the Bible, if what you say does not harmonize with the Bible then what you say is wrong! Context and other scriptures help determine scriptures that may stump us, let scripture interpret scripture. The Bible does not contradict itself, so if what you are being taught or if what you are teaching makes it seem like the Bible is contradictory, remember it's not the Bible it's the man-made teaching! Doctrines of men! Mark 7:6, 7 "He said to them: “Isaiah aptly prophesied about YOU hypocrites, as it is written, ‘This people honor me with [their] lips, but their hearts are far removed from me. 7 It is in vain that they keep worshiping me, because they teach as doctrines commands of men." (also Romans 10:2, 3)

Education/Credentials
Matthew 24:14 says "And this good news of the kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations; and then the end will come." We are doing that today, we are living in times of Bible Prophecy and as a Jehovah's Witness, we have the privilege to be apart of a prophecy spoken by Jesus himself! The good news of the Kingdom. Ask yourself, what kingdom? then read Daniel 2:44! It's a real government. Take heed now! Listening to men over God will mean your life.(Prov 3:5,6, Ps. 146:3) A lie will never become truth, No matter how long or how many people say it or speak it. Learn what the Bible really teaches, seek out Jehovah's ways, serving God in truth is only acceptable to him,(John 4:23, 24) you can not be serving God acceptably if what you believe is a lie! Pray for understanding and ask Jehovah to search your heart and draw you! (John 6:44, 65) Now is the time to be with the people who are called by Jehovah's name! (Acts 15:14, 17, Isa. 43:7, 10, Zech 8:23)
