    As JWs we are taught that only JWs will survive armageddon. Upon really meditating on this how can any JW believe this? The good news means that 99% of the worlds population will be wiped out? hm. Guven the history of the old testament, extermination is not surprising...but billions? the very God whom teaches love and to hate violence will be responsible for the largest mass killing in the earths history? And when the survivors are tested again after 1,000 years are tested again those who fail wll be annihilaated?

    It is ironic that one of the main points that a JW uses for why they are the truth is that they don't go to war. Yet the Bible is filled with examples of God's people conducting warfare and genocide on non-believers. No one has been as brutal as God himself though, wiping out virtually the entire planet in the flood, and then again billions at Armageddon. How do they justify it - it is not genocide if the people deserve it. Sounds like any megalomaniac to me.

    What is very troubling is that, if you believe the Watchtower, your chances of surviving Armageddon is pretty much up to chance. If you were born in China you have very likely never heard of Jehovah or Jehovah's Witnesses. Even if you live in a Western country, you very likely have never heard what the Jehovah's Witnesses think is in store for you. Very few people bother to answer the door for them. Those that answer very likely do not listen to the thirty second presentation. Even fewer take the magazines, even less read them. Even in places like the US, where there are a fair amount of HAs, most people do not know the basic teachings of the religion, or that they are being warned. This supposedly very important preaching work is a failure.

    So, this supposedly all powerful creator cannot even get his agenda out to even a fraction of the world's population. Nevertheless, his is still going to destroy billions of men, women and children whose only crime is that they have never heard of him. All you can say is that it is at least consistent with his record in the old testament.

    What amuses me is most jw`s fail to realise that the wars sanctioned by God against the phillistines , Ammorites , Jebusites , Hittites , etc.,the Israelites suffered death and casualties also .That point is ignored by them .

    P.S. I suppose I can understand the young witness women WANTING God to wage war on the celluites .

    It's OK god has a weakness - he can't fight chariots of iron.......

    “And the Lord was with Judah; and he drave out the inhabitants of the mountain; but could not drive out the inhabitants of the valley, because they had chariots of iron.”

    —Judges 1:19

    This was a topic I brought up to a couple of fundamentalists- Jesus returns with his faithful to exterminate the human race.

    What a sad and pathetic religion christianity is.
