Jehovah`s Witness/Derrick Holland's warped mind.
When DH calls you a liar, he calls you liar because you quote HIM. He acknowledges his lies in that You quote HIM. How can God reward someone who despises him with everlasting life? Can you answer why God would do such a thing or is it a lie that Derrick the Holland is spreading about God being an evil torturer? www.youtube.com/watch?v=K9p9qyHvhTw
Exactly! That's why I no longer include a full quote from him because it's useless. No matter what you quote - even exact words - he's going to call you a LIAR!
For example, he clearly stated that if I wanted to, and that if I don't chicken out, he'll be happy to debate me on the doctrine of Hell.
So I said - OK a challenge to debate, plain and simple. No problem. At least that what I thought it was. But no, he came back and said I lied. That he never said he "challenged" me to a debate.
Huh? I mean, if someone says debate - it's a challenge or an invitation to discuss something, isn't it? But he says no. So what do you do? Scratch your head and try to make sense out of it.
So why did he do this? Why try to hide from what he said? Why back out of it?
I think I know why. It's because he knows that his Hellfire doctrine is unscriptural. That it can't be defended in any way shape or form. He knows that by doing so he is making a loving and merciful God, Jehovah an evil torturer. A sadistic one at that. For what kind of justice can one get from a non-stop punishment of someone who is of dust? Only he who has no sense of justice. Like Satan the Devil.
Now, here's what I predict he will say if he tries to defend his Hellfire Doctrine.
He will say, How dare you question God on what is right and what is wrong? "You can't tell him what is right. He tells you"
He will say, You have no right to question God if he wants to punish people in Hell.
Now if he says these, it shows his lack of understanding who Jehovah God is.
It will also show his lack of understanding who Jesus Christ is.
He has no idea how their love is beyond measure.
It will also show his ignorance that God allows his servants to ask questions, especially when it comes to justice and mercy.
Remember Abraham? What did he asked Jehovah God (through an angel) about Sodom and Gomorrah? That if there were righteous people found, what will happen to them?
"23 Then Abraham approached and said: <b>“Will you really sweep away the righteous with the wicked?
24 Suppose there are 50 righteous men within the city. Will you, then, sweep them away and not pardon the place for the sake of the 50 righteous who are inside it?
25 It is unthinkable that you would act in this manner by putting the righteous man to death with the wicked one so that the outcome for the righteous man and the wicked is the same! It is unthinkable of you. Will the Judge of all the earth not do what is right?”
26 Then Jehovah said: “If I find in Sodʹom 50 righteous men in the city, I will pardon the whole place for their sake.”
27 But Abraham again responded: “Please, here I have presumed to speak to Jehovah, whereas I am dust and ashes.
<b>28 Suppose the 50 righteous should lack five. Because of the five will you destroy the whole city?” To this he said: “I will not destroy it if I find there 45.”
29 But yet again he spoke to him and said: “Suppose 40 are found there.” He answered: “I will not do it for the sake of the 40.”
30 But he continued: “Jehovah, please, do not become hot with anger, but let me go on speaking: Suppose only 30 are found there.” He answered: “I will not do it if I find 30 there.”
31 But he continued: “Please, here I have presumed to speak to Jehovah: Suppose only 20 are found there.” He answered: “I will not destroy it for the sake of the 20.”
32 Finally he said: “Jehovah, please, do not become hot with anger, but let me speak just once more:
Suppose only ten are found there.” He answered: “I will not destroy it for the sake of the ten.”
33 When Jehovah finished speaking to Abraham, he went his way and Abraham returned to his place.”
Wow! Just wow! What a God! He allows Himself to be questioned by a mere "dust".
What a Majestic God!
Now if Abraham was PERMITTED to question Jehovah God as to the outcome of the inhabitants of Sodom and Gomorrah, why can't we question Him about the future of the departed? As to their being punished, burned and tortured forever in Hellfire?
Why can't we ask Him:
'Why would you punish people in Hellfire forever if their crime was but momentary? What kind of justice is this? Can they have a second chance to make things right? Can they have a second chance in life to prove to you they really loved you? Why would you not give them a second chance? Instead condemn them straight to Hell?
Why would a loving and merciful God not be bothered by the everlasting suffering of his creation?
How can we love and serve God for all eternity while at the same knowing that he's burning and torturing people alive in Hellfire night and day, forever?
If we have Abraham with us today, what would he say?
This he will say:
"It is unthinkable that you would act in this manner..."
Now, if God will not allow us to question him about Hellfire, what kind of God is he?
He is exactly the god that Derrick Holland serves and worships - unjust and unmerciful god. Just like the "god of the wicked systems of things" - Satan the Devil. He is a sadistic evil god.
In fact it is believed and taught by Christendom that Satan is in charge of Hell. And that he enjoys punishing people by burning and torturing their "immortal souls".
What a disgusting, vile evil doctrine. Full of LIES!!!! And Derrick Holland have the audacity to associate both Jehovah God and Jesus Christ to it?
Recall what he said:
"Hell IS a just punishment for those who mock and reject the Gospel of Jesus Christ."
Whose justice is this? Is it Jehovah God's justice? Is it Jesus Christ's justice?
OR IS IT Derrick Holland's justice?
Guess what? By saying "Hell IS a just punishment for those who mock and reject the Gospel of Jesus Christ"
- Derrick Holland just TOLD God what is "right" in his eyes.
In not so many words - Derrick Holland made God an unjust God.
Which is a total contradiction of how the Scripture beautifully describes Jah!
"The Rock, perfect is his activity, For all his ways are justice. A God of faithfulness who is never unjust; Righteous and upright is he.” (Deuteronomy 32:4)
"Every good gift and every perfect present is from above, coming down from the Father of the celestial lights, who does not vary or change like the shifting shadows." (James 1:17)
"....He loves righteousness and justice. The earth is filled with Jehovah’s loyal love." (Psalm 33:5)
“Understanding the Almighty is beyond our reach; He is great in power, And he never violates his justice and abundant righteousness.” (Job 37:23)
“For Jehovah is righteous; he loves righteous acts. The upright will see his face.” (Psalm 11:7)
“You loved righteousness, and you hated wickedness. That is why God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of exultation more than your companions.” (Psalm 45:7)
May our God Jehovah be blessed forever and ever. In Jesus Christ name - Amen.
BTW - expect scripture twisting and manipulation if he tries to defend his disgusting doctrine of Hellfire.
