    In three parts:

    1) If God made it such that, no matter what you believed or how you conducted your life, when
    you died, you would go to Hell, would you continue to worship Him? Why or why not?

    2) If God made it such that, no matter what you believed or how you conducted your life, when
    you died, you would go to Heaven, would you continue to worship Him? Why or why not?

    3) If God made it such that, no matter what you believed or how you conducted your life, when
    you died, you would be put into a state of dreamless sleep for all eternity, for all intents and
    purposes would cease to exist, would you continue to worship Him? Why or why not?

    i don't worship god for the promise of after life. sure it is a nice perk but the reason i believe in god is that it is a nice idea. a being that is supposed to be all love and fuzzy feelings, a being that created us and loved us so much he sent his son to die for us, a son who is also the embodiment of love and fuzzy feelings that died for us to teach us the value of self sacrifice. this is a deity worth believing in.

    i would never whorship a god who asked me to sacrifice children. or one who asked me to rape 14 year old girls. or one who would ask me to do war on the infidels

    Is the prophet Mohammed a true prophet?
    Is the prophet Smith a true prophet?
    Is the prophet Elijah a true prophet?
    How do you know true from false prophets?

    No to all three.
    Because there is no reward for worship since the end result of our lives is both pre-ordained and known with certainty.

    Thank God, some of us want a living and loving relationship with a Person rather than a Truth Table of binary 1 and 0s.


    If you trust in Jesus everything will pan out alright.


    While Nemesio searches for the Ultimate Theological Matrix of binary 1s and 0s to yield him air tight logical answers on all manner of hypothetical situations, some of us prefer to fall in love with the most precious and attractive one in the universe - Jesus Christ.

    the first one implies an evil god. i do good not for the promise of heaven but for the sake of good. god isn't obligated to reward something that you should be doing anyway. but at least he shouldn't reward good with evil.
    so i would not worship the first god.

    the second and the third is a yes, though i prefer the one that gives me cookies at the end 😀

    every human being that has ever worshipped as worshipped because they did not want to burn in hell and thats the bottom line; they will always deny it until they wake up and realize it is not real. this is coming from an ex-christian, the reason it took me so long to stop believing is the fear of hell and that alone.

    Amen to that, I couldn't have said it better myself. Here is some ammo for you. Muslim's believe that Jesus was a prophet (not the Son of God, just a prophet) So when Jesus said "I AM the Way, the Truth and the Light", and no one can come to the Father except by me. Would that cancel out Mohammed even within their own religion. Since Jesus is believed to be a prophet, those two statments cancel out any more use Mohammed the prophet that they believe in
