Jehovah`s Witness/Jesus went to Sheol?

Question
"And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise." Luke 23:43

According to Derrick Holland the Baptist Doctrine is that Jesus and the Evildoer never died but went to Heaven that same day.  Now Richard is claiming the Baptist Doctrine that Paradise is now Sheol/Hell when he died, and proclaimed to the imprisoned spirits while He was there??

"We believe that Jesus went to Sheol went he died (Eph. 4:8-10), proclaimed to the imprisoned spirits while He was there" (1 Peter 3:8) http://en.allexperts.com/q/Jehovah-s-Witness-1617/2015/2/true-baptist-doctrine-h

This is not the same teaching Holland teaches! How can Jesus proclaim anything when he was dead?  Didn't he ascend to Heaven after 40 days to preach to the angels in Tartarus in HEAVEN where these angels were in spiritual darkness as proof that he was given authority?  

How long was Jesus dead? According to bother Derrick and Richard never??

Funny how Paradise is Heaven and Hell at the same time? Ridiculous! Wasn't Jesus resurrected from the dead three days later?  

Is the evildoer still burning in Sheol now since HE didn't get a Resurrection?  

Did Jesus trick him into going to Hell by saying Paradise??

Answer
Hi Brother.

Thanks for writing.

Yes, I saw this one too and made me chuckle.

I mean can they make their (Baptist) doctrine any more confusing? I thought there's no way and yet they've done again. Not only  they made it so confusing they've even contradicted themselves. LOL!!!

One says (i.e. DH) Jesus and the Evildoer never died but went to Heaven that same day.

(BTW, Brother, do you know that even Heaven is very confusing when you asked what they mean by it? Some will say the thief went to "Paradise" somewhere in between 3rd or 1st heaven" - whatever)

Now Richard says,

"We believe that Jesus went to Sheol went he died (Eph. 4:8-10), proclaimed to the imprisoned spirits while He was there" (1 Peter 3:8) http://en.allexperts.com/q/Jehovah-s-Witness-1617/2015/2/true-baptist-doctrine-h

Can it get anymore confusing than these?

Rather than simply say Jesus went to the Grave (common grave of mankind - Sheol/Hades) when he died, they have to invent some ridiculous explanation that ends up creating more confusion.

Just like Hellfire, Hell doesn't exist, they have to invent a way to explain it in order to hide one of the many lies they promote.
