    For the few here that think the JW's are consumed in only preaching doom and gloom about the world now, here ya go. This is the hope that we teach to all and why we come to your doors.

    God’s Kingdom Will Carry Out His Purpose

    In addition to guaranteeing that the earth will never expire, God’s Word also tells us that he “formed it even to be inhabited.” (Isaiah 45:18) Although our earth has been inhabited for thousands of years, that in itself has not fulfilled God’s purpose.
    Jehovah is a “happy God” and “a lover of justice.” (1 Timothy 1:11; Psalm 37:28)

    His purpose is for all humans to live happily and free from injustice. In order to carry out his purpose, God foretold that he would set up one Kingdom in the heavens that will rule over the entire earth. (Daniel 2:44) While on earth, Jesus regularly spoke about God’s Kingdom government. He encouraged his disciples to pray for it because he knew of all the blessings that were in store for the earth under the reign of that Kingdom. (Matthew 6:9, 10; 24:14) What are some of those blessings?

    ▪ Peace and security will prevail because God promises to end all wars.—Psalm 46:9.
    ▪ There will be ample food for all.—Psalm 72:16.
    ▪ Health care will not be an issue because “no resident will say: ‘I am sick.’”—Isaiah 33:24.
    ▪ Grieving will not be necessary, for “death will be no more.”—Revelation 21:4.
    ▪ God promises that his people will build their own houses, live in security, and “be joyful forever.”—Isaiah 65:17-24.

    No doubt you long to enjoy conditions like those outlined above. Jehovah has a fiery zeal—a burning desire—to carry out all that he has foretold. (Isaiah 9:6, 7)

    Actually main stream Christianity does not teach this. They pretty much believe in just going to heaven and not so much living here on earth.

    Well I never hear of any Christians themselves state this earthly option nor does their preachers teach this. They all think they will go to heaven to float around on some fluffy clouds and play music all day.
    The have no idea who the "Great crowd" is and where they will be at, as is different then the "Little flock" and where they will be at.
    I don't need evidence as all one has to do is ask most any Christian about this subject.
    Most find it confusing and even under them and their saved position they think they have in the bag so to speak, that most JW's know we will not go to heaven in the future and will be here on earth to live. This is what these and many other scriptures speak of.
    No where in the Bible does it say all good humans will be going to heaven after they die. NO WHERE.

    Really, Excellent!

    So when your god turns up and Armageddon happens he will leave me and anyone else
    who doesn't want to participate alone and wont either force us to waste our time
    pretending to worship him or throw us into a lake of fire for failing to do the same....

    if his purpose is for humans to live happily without injustice, he'll have to remove himself from the equation.

    what it means to be a christian:

    the hope that a powerful alien civilization will invade the earth, murder every human being who is willing to fight using chemical, ecological, biological and nuclear warfare. and subjugate the remainder.

    and you'll be rooting for the wrong side.

    Admitting it after you've been caught doesn't really work.
