Concept of Hell a letter to Jehovah Witness By Rachidm

Dear Jehovah’s Witnesses:

I would like to share with you some biblical research based upon my discussions with Jehovah’s Witnesses friends.

The topic is Hell, which Jehovah’s witnesses call Hades, Shell, Hinnom or Gehenna. By the way, Gehenna (Gahanam as pronounced in the Arabic language) has the same meaning in both the Arabic and Hebrew languages; the meaning understood by both is an eternal Hellfire. (May Allah save us from it?) The verse of Matthew 4:22 makes it quite clear that Gahanna is a fiery truth, “However, I say to YOU that everyone who continues wrathful with his brother will be accountable to the court of justice; but whoever addresses his brother with an unspeakable word of contempt will be accountable to the Supreme Court; whereas whoever says “You despicable fool!” will be liable to the fiery Gahanna.”

Let’s follow the Jehovah’s Witness Bible’s advice (New World translation of the Holy Scriptures):

“Make sure of all things, hold fast to what is fine “ (I-Thessalonians 5:21)

Let’s use this valuable biblical advice on all of our future quests for the truth.

Jehovah’s Witnesses teach that the unsaved do not go to a place of eternal punishment, but merely cease to exist. This contradicts any translation of any Bible, including The Watchtower’s New World Translation;

“And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up ever and ever and they have no rest day nor night”, Revelation 14:11.

Also please read Rev. 14:9-11, honestly there is no way to interpret “and they have no rest day and night’ to mean that the sinners just won’t exist any more like Russell wanted us to blindly believe.

Taking into consideration the biblical suggestion in I-Thessalonians 5:21, what do you think?

For further proofs, please read Revelation 20:10, Matt 25:46, Mark 9:43, Matt.8:12, 13:50, 24:51, Luke 13:28

As far as the Old Testament goes let’s read Dan.12:2.

The Bible does teach that as certain as we can see, that Hell is a reality and is eternal in duration. Please see MK.9:43, Rev.20:10, 14:10, 11

Other verses prove beyond any doubt that Hell is eternal according to the scriptures we just shed light on.

Don’t you agree?

Matthew.25:46 further replied to the question of Hell (or Hades as you may choose to call it) by saying,

“And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into life eternal.”

Let’s further investigate the Bible for more proofs:

Luke 16:23-“In Hades he lifted up his eyes, being in torment.”

Luke 16:24- “I am in agony in the flame”

Is 66:24-“Then they shall go forth and look on the corpses of the men who have transgressed against me? For their warm shall not die, and their fire shall they shall be an abhorrence not be quenched, and to all mankind.”

Matt 12:2, Matt 3:12-“…He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire”

Matt 25:46- “…go away into eternal punishment…”

Mark 9:43- “It is better for you to enter life crippled, than having your two hands, to go into Hell [Greek.Gehenna] “

Heb 10:27-29 – “a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God. Anyone who rejected the law …”

I feel it necessary to provide further evidences from within the Jehovah’s Witnesses own bible. If you prefer to know what the Holy Quran has to offer, I would be more than happy to discuss it with you, or better yet, get a copy of and research it as I have researched your bible.

I pray that you will sincerely consider these proofs, although they go against the teaching of the Watchtower Society. We must always remember what the Bible said in I-Thessalonians 5:21 – “Make sure of all things, hold fast to what is fine.” Let’s use this valuable biblical suggestion in all future quests for the truth…

“Truly, in remembering God do hearts find rest?” (Qur’an, 13:28)

“If you could but see when they are set before the fire (Hell) and say: ’would that we might return (to the world)! Then we would not reject the verses of our Lord, but we would be of the believers!’

God has said in the Holy Quran 57:21

“Race one with another for forgiveness from your Lord and for Paradise, whose width is as the width of the heavens and the earth, which has been prepared for those who believe in God and His messengers…”

The Prophet Muhammad (May peace be upon him) said :{ A space in Paradise equivalent to the size of a foot would be better than the world and what is in it.} Narrated in Saheeh Muslim, # 186, and Saheeh Al-Bukharri, #6571

He also said: {In Paradise there are things which no eye has seen, nor ear has heard, and no human mind has thought of.} He also said: {the most miserable man in the world of those meant for Paradise will be dipped once in Paradise. Then he will be asked: ‘Son of Adam, did you ever face any misery? Did you ever experience any hardship?” So he will say: “No, by God, O Lord! I never faced any misery, and I never experienced any hardship. “ }

To all Jehovah’s Witnesses truth seekers, may your journey be fruitful in exploring the truth
