  • Heaven and Hell is written in the bible so ofcourse the witnesses believe in them. Only you have to get accurate knowledge of them. Heaven is where God resides with his son Jesus and the angels. Others will join the heavenly rank to rule the earth after armageddon. Jesus would be the greatest king but he will have 144 000 helpers with him (mentioned in Revelation) and they will rule over righteous men from a heavenly government. Hell, i think you question if witnesses believe it is a firey place of torment right? ofcourse not. for 1 thing, would you buy a puppy (to put it bluntly) and if it continuously barks or annoys you (not saying we annoy God) and you find that it had gone bad, would you lock it in a shed so it can't escape and make sure it gets hot in there to "punish" it? "torture it" so to speak? only if you are sadistic. So neither will God do it to you. Hell? Psalms6:5 and Ecclestiastes 9:10, 5.
  • Heaven, yes. There is a limited number going, exactly 144,000. Everyone else gets to live in paradise on earth. Hell, that's another story. They believe that hell is a condition of non-existence following death, awaiting resurrection. They believe that there is no place of conscious fiery torment.
  • I dont know but they sure don't believe in good manners and they keep bothering me on sundays knocking on my door with their crap litterature!! If I wanna join a secte, I'll do it without having them annoying me on my door step!!!!! PS: Hopefully they believe in hell cause that's where they will go!!! I am sorry ... but not giving blood transfusions to the ill (even when it is a child) and letting them die is to me a good way to get the keys to Satan's home!
  • what was that bout hell not being in the bible? Matthew 5:22 (Whole Chapter) But I tell you that anyone who is angry with his brother [ Some manuscripts brother without cause] will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to his brother, 'Raca, [ An Aramaic term of contempt] ' is answerable to the Sanhedrin. But anyone who says, 'You fool!' will be in danger of the fire of hell. Matthew 5:29 (Whole Chapter) If your right eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. Matthew 5:30 (Whole Chapter) And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell. Matthew 10:28 (Whole Chapter) Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. Matthew 18:9 (Whole Chapter) And if your eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into the fire of hell. Matthew 23:15 (Whole Chapter) "Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to win a single convert, and when he becomes one, you make him twice as much a son of hell as you are. Matthew 23:33 (Whole Chapter) "You snakes! You brood of vipers! How will you escape being condemned to hell? Mark 9:43 (Whole Chapter) If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life maimed than with two hands to go into hell, where the fire never goes out. [ Some manuscripts out, 44 where / " 'their worm does not die, / and the fire is not quenched.'] Mark 9:45 (Whole Chapter) And if your foot causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life crippled than to have two feet and be thrown into hell. [ Some manuscripts hell, 46 where / " 'their worm does not die, / and the fire is not quenched.'] Mark 9:47 (Whole Chapter) And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into hell, Luke 12:5 (Whole Chapter) But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear him who, after the killing of the body, has power to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him. Luke 16:23 (Whole Chapter) In hell, [ Greek Hades] where he was in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away, with Lazarus by his side. James 3:6 (Whole Chapter) The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole person, sets the whole course of his life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell. 2 Peter 2:4 (Whole Chapter) For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to hell, [ Greek Tartarus] putting them into gloomy dungeons [ Some manuscripts into chains of darkness] to be held for judgment IN the old testament hell was translated from the word 'shoel' . it means deceased, lack of life. GOd is LIfe thus shoel is the opposite to God. God is love thus shoel is no love/life and it is very evendent that there is some signs of love in some people here on earth. Thus this place of total no love/shoel must exist independantly. i have read up about 4 hours worth of biblical to do with hell and heaven all becuase i refuse to be swayed by a jehova's withness. i respect your beliefs but please stop using the bible to create doubt in other fellow chirsitans. You are not ment to collect pplz for your group, if they believ in God then just let them be. thank you
  • i found a realli good rebutle on the internet by http://www.catholic.com/library/Stumpers_for_Jehovah_Witnesse.asp According to Scripture, if one is in hell, "he shall be tormented with fire and sulfur . . . the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever, and day and night they have no rest" (Rev. 14:11). This is an "everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels" (Matt. 25:41). Jesus tells his listeners of Lazarus and the rich man, where the rich man dies, and is "existing in torment . . . he sees . . . calls out . . . ‘I am in anguish in this blazing fire’" (Luke 16:19-31). As a further illustration, Jesus stated that hell is likened to Gehenna. This "Valley of Hinnom" was located southeast of Jerusalem, and was used as a garbage dump where trash and waste were continuously burned day and night in a large fire. Jesus informs the listeners that hell is like this, "where the maggot does not die, and fire is not put out" (Mark 9:42-48). It is the place where the wicked are sent, and from this "everlasting fire" (Matt. 18:8) will come "weeping and the gnashing of teeth" (Matt. 8:12). Now if hell were "a place of rest in hope" as the WTS teaches, then it is odd that Jesus would choose such contradictory illustrations to convey this. Lastly, Revelation 20 calls hell a "pool of fire . . . [where] they will be tormented day and night, forever and ever"—all who are not in the book of life. So, if one’s name is in the book of life, one enters heaven (Rev. 21:27). If it not in the book, then a literal hell awaits. the internet has so many things
  • Jehovahs witness need to know that the only way to the lord is thru Jesus Christ and the bible talks about heaven and he'll. All souls that are saved will enter into the kingdom. Not a certain number. God wanted all man to live forever but because of sin many shall parish. And because of sin people who do not accept Jesus as their lord and savior cannot be forgiven and have to be punished after life. But to have ever lasting life it's easy as abc accept him as you lord believe and confess
  • yes we do absolutely, only very differently from what the churches of christendom and the rest of religion teaches! for more information go to www.watchtower.org
  • Heaven Yes. Hell no.
  • According to them "heaven" is the sky and "hell" is the grave. They do believe that after the revelation the world will be paradise, so that's kind of heaven. They don't believe anyone will be tortured for eternity though.
  • yawn, yawn, yawn.
  • no. from this religion yes they do belief but if someone is not sure to be in that religion than maybe yes or no ok hope this answers helped you.(the real ones belief in heaven and in hell).
  • From what I know about them, they believe Heaven is God's throne, while hell is the grave by the Hebrew word Sheol, which is correct. Isaiah 66:1 "Thus saith the LORD, The Heaven is My throne, and the Earth is My footstool: where is the house that ye build unto Me? and where is the place of My rest?" Psalm 6:5 "For in death there is no remembrance of you; in Sheol who will give you praise?"
  • No idea, nor have interest in that bunch!
  • not sure
  • Jehovah's witnesses believe that Jesus Christ has chosen 12,000 people from each tribe of Israel to be trained to be his helpers and to help govern the people of planet Earth when he returns to convert Earth into a paradise home for the righteous people of mankind. That's a total of $144,000 people that will be trained to go to heaven and the purpose of those people in heaven is not to stay in heaven that have come down to earth and to help govern us,! So if those people that are being trained to govern the people of Earth are being trained for that purpose you automatically ought to know the purpose that God has for righteous man to live on Earth and to take care of it just like he told Adam and Eve. That's what Jesus Christ kingdom is bringing us. Now as toward the word hell I'm going to give you a quotation what the Bible says about hell. Do not fear men who have the power to kill your body and then can do no more rather be in fear of almighty God who after he has killed you can destroy your soul in hell. Now if you didn't get this go back and read it till it's burned into your mind God kills you first before throwing what is left of you into hell to be destroyed. There is only one entity in the Bible that gets thrown into hell while still alive God doesn't believe in burning people to death he gives you a merciful execution and then disposes of your remains in the fire cremation nothing horrible about that we do it every day. The one being that goes into the lake of fire while still alive is the wild beast the creature with the multiple heads. Everybody else gets killed first and what's left of them gets destroyed in hell this is exactly what the Bible teaches you. And then to make this absolutely clear to you not one little smoking cold will be left of them! Do you know that the Bible actually warns against the false doctrine of hellfire it's in the Old testament you must not teach your children that when they pass they will go through the fire to be with the god Molech Satan! The god of fire the bull headed God baphomet! The Bible goes on to say such an idea is an absolute abomination to me it's something I did not command you to teach and such a thought would never enter into my mind! God then instructs Moses in the Israelites to put to death anybody that is teaching such a thing. It is a terrible defamation against God to call him a horrible torturing monster that burns people over and over and over again for all eternity it's totally against what the Bible says
  • They believe in Heaven. They teach that Hell is "the grave" and that "the lake of fire" (Rev 20) - where Satan and those who "fail" the Final Judgment are consigned - is eternal cessation of existence or causes eternal cessation of existence. Note that this is directly contrary to the Bible passage itself, which teaches us that those consigned to the lake of fire "...will be tormented day and night forever and ever". They teach that those consigned to the lake of fire will cease to exist, will cease to feel anything, and so forever and ever will not suffer any torment.
