    Hi just want a little help with a Paradise earth speech that jehovah's Witnesses normally give.

    I want to have this as my intro for my oral presentation.

    Can some people please help and tell me a typical Paradise earth speech.

    Imagine that you have knocked on my door and I answered it now the presentation of yours.....


  • DannyBloem

    you mean, what the witnesses will say at the door?
    (they have books where they have introductions in, so yes there are some standard 'paradise' presentations. They start with discribing some terrible event recently hapened, or a general problem, like crime in the neighbourhood etc.
    When you agree that things are so bad, they will continue: 'but did you know that God promised us that things will be better in the future"
    or ... that God will solve these problems. Here we have a nice book (magazine, booklet) that shows that people can live forever in paradise on earth.
    See the nice pictures? Do you not want to live in this paradise? And voila, place the magazines.... Hope this helps Danny

    K thanks Dannybloom

    Other than Door to Door presentation what is the typical speech on it, like as if a jw would have to stand up and give a talk on Paradise earth.

    Like the elder guy i spoke to on the phone, he was talking too fast at points and I couldn't write it down lol! so if someone tells me in writing (this being a forum and all...) then that would really help

    Something like this: But do not start believing it please

    No other generation has heard so much talk about the end of the world. Many fear that the world will end in a nuclear holocaust. Others think that pollution may destroy the world. Still others worry that economic chaos will set masses of humanity against one another.

    Could this world really end? If it did, what would it mean? Has a world ever ended before?

    A World Ends—Another Replaces It

    Yes, a world did end. Consider the world that became very wicked in the days of Noah. The Bible explains: "The world of that time suffered destruction when it was deluged with water." The Bible also says: "[God] did not hold back from punishing an ancient world, but kept Noah, a preacher of righteousness, safe with seven others when he brought a deluge upon a world of ungodly people."— 2 Peter 2:5 ; 3:6 .

    Note what the end of that world meant and what it did not mean. It did not mean the end of humankind. Noah and his family survived the global Flood. So did the planet Earth and the beautiful starry heavens. It was "a world of ungodly people" that perished, a wicked system of things.

    Eventually, as Noah’s offspring increased, another world developed. That second world, or system of things, has existed down to our day. Its history has been filled with war, crime, and violence. What will happen to this world? Will it survive?

    The Future of This World

    After saying the world in Noah’s day suffered destruction, the Bible account continues: "By the same word the heavens and the earth that are now are stored up for fire." ( 2 Peter 3:7 ) Indeed, as another Bible writer explains: "The world [the one existing today] is passing away."— 1 John 2:17 .

    The Bible does not mean that the literal earth or the starry heavens will pass away, even as these did not pass away in Noah’s day. ( Psalm 104:5 ) Rather, this world, with its "heavens," or governmental rulers under the influence of Satan, and its "earth," or human society, will be destroyed as if by fire. ( John 14:30 ; 2 Corinthians 4:4 ) This world, or system of things, will perish just as surely as did the world before the Flood. Even Jesus Christ spoke about the situation in "the days of Noah" as an example of what would happen just prior to the end of this world.— Matthew 24:37-39 .

    Significantly, when Jesus spoke of the days of Noah, it was in answer to his apostles’ question: "What shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?" ( Matthew 24:3 , King James Version) Jesus’ followers knew that this world would end. Did this prospect frighten them?

    On the contrary, when Jesus described events that would occur prior to the world’s end, he encouraged them to rejoice ‘because their deliverance was getting near.’ ( Luke 21:28 ) Yes, deliverance from Satan and his wicked system of things into a peaceful new world!— 2 Peter 3:13 .

    But when will this world end? What "sign" did Jesus give of his "coming, and of the end of the world"?

    "The Sign"

    The Greek word here translated "coming" is pa·rou·si'a, and it means "presence," that is, actually being on hand. So when "the sign" is seen, it would not mean Christ was soon to come but that he had already returned and was present. It would mean that he had begun ruling invisibly as a heavenly king and that he would soon bring an end to his enemies.— Revelation 12:7-12 ; Psalm 110:1, 2 .

    Jesus did not give just one event as "the sign." He described many world events and situations. All of these would take place during the time that Bible writers called "the last days." ( 2 Timothy 3:1-5 ; 2 Peter 3:3, 4 ) Consider some of the things that Jesus foretold would mark "the last days."

    "Nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom." ( Matthew 24:7 )

    "There will be food shortages." ( Matthew 24:7 ) Following World War I came perhaps the greatest famine in all history. Terrible famine also followed World War II. A scourge of malnutrition affects up to one fifth of earth’s population, killing some 14 million children every year. Truly, there have been "food shortages"!

    "There will be great earthquakes." ( Luke 21:11 ) On the average, about ten times as many have died each year from earthquakes since 1914 as in previous centuries. Consider only a few major ones: 1920, China, 200,000 killed; 1923, Japan, 99,300 casualties; 1939, Turkey, 32,700 fatalities; 1970, Peru, 66,800 killed; and 1976, China, about 240,000 (or, according to some sources, 800,000) casualties. Surely, "great earthquakes"!

    "In one place after another pestilences." ( Luke 21:11 ) Science Digest reported: "In all history there had been no sterner, swifter visitation of death." Since then, heart disease, cancer, AIDS, and many other plagues have killed hundreds of millions.

    "Increasing of lawlessness." ( Matthew 24:12 ) Our world since 1914 has become known as one of crime and violence. In many places no one feels safe on the streets even during the daytime. At night people stay in their homes behind locked and barricaded doors, afraid to go outside.

    Many other things were foretold to occur during the last days, and all of these also are being fulfilled. This means the end of the world is near. But, happily, there will be survivors. After saying "the world is passing away," the Bible promises: "He that does the will of God remains forever."— 1 John 2:17 .

    So we need to learn God’s will and do it. Then we can survive this world’s end to enjoy eternally the blessings of God’s new world. The Bible promises that at that time: "God . . . will wipe out every tear from [people’s] eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore."— Revelation 21:3, 4 .

  • Evanescence

    Can you give me a Paradise earth speech please!!

    I can't be bothered reading all that! I'll get bored of it too quikly I like reading non-fiction books not fiction! *nerd*

    But I guess fiction can be nice sometimes.

    But non-fiction can be boring like books on science or topics that don't interest me the slightest bit!

    lol I'm called a bible nerd and a R.E geek at school! its funny I ask my R.E teacher questions and he can't answer them cause they're too advanced for him! He jokingly says "curse you evanescence! for coming up with questions I can't answer! you make me study them everytimw I go home its not fair!!!!!" lol *felt like turning around and saying that in the bible it says that you shouldn't curse people!*


  • defd


    All you need to do is go to the bible on the matter. God speaks vividly about the paradise earth. Id say he gives the best "speech" "talk" on the subject.

  • hubert

    You better not give the speech Danny gave you. It looks so convincing, you might convert the whole class!!!

    Hubert, .....of the "convined class" type.

  • under74

    The Witnesses always have such nice paradise pictures in their magazines.

    Apparently the entire Earth will become mountainous with flowing streams and rivers, covered in fir trees with lots of flowers, fruit, tigers and bears all around. The grass will always remain nicely cut without the aid of a lawnmower. Apparently not many people at all will be resurrected after '5000' years of human existence, because there aren't any homes in the horizon.

    Sounds great! I think I'll start going to the Hall again so I can have a pet liger and live in a bear's den on a mountain top.
