I didn't want to hijack highdose's thread because I apparently went off on a rant when attempting to simply comment, so I thought I'd start my own thread. This has been something that has just recently become more apparent in my thinking and bugs the CRAP outta me!:
If it is a universal fact that God exists and can read people's hearts.....then why is there the statement that only JW's and those "ignorant" of JW teachings will live?
As someone who has left "the truth" and find it more and more repulsingly filled with lies....I still have a desire to be harmonious with a greater being (as I do believe one exists, just have been questioning its form since everything else I was raised on is complete crap). IF there is actually A God...one and only....and he READS HEARTS......then why the hell should I be destroyed because a RELIGION calls me apostate for not agreeing with THEIR teachings, which are being so blantantly proved as FALSE????
IT MAKES NO SENSE. If there is a God that truly reads the hearts, it is not going to matter what religion/race/culture/whatever you are. "salvation" would HAVE to be based on individuals, not groups of people. After all, doesn't the infamous BIBLE say that each person will render an accounting for only themselves to God? I find it ignorantly assumed that out of 7 BILLION different people only 7 MILLION have "good/acceptable hearts". AND I find it hard to believe that out of those 7 MILLION...they ALL have good hearts! How many of us knew some real JERKS and SHADY PEOPLE when we were witnesses? What about all the evidence of pedophilia? All the abuse that gets hidden? You really think that God would want PEDOPHILES in his "new system"??? COME ON PEOPLE! WAKE THE EFF UP!!!
