    Well, I guess we would have all been very nice to each other for no particular reason. Doesn't sound so bad really.

    Cheers :-)

    It is good to see somebody questioning something that we are all expected to take for granted.

    I do not think that any one person can give a definitive answer to your question. However, I can recommend that you get your hands on a book entitled, "Conversations with God". I have read this book and it is not what you may initially think from it's title.

    The book is well written and quite funny in many instances. It answers quite a lot of questions that people ask from time to time and poses quite a few questions as well.

    Whether or not you believe the contents, it certainly makes one think about, and question the doctrine that we are all fed.

    It is not a religious book and may even be sacrilegeous in places.

    You could probably borrow the book from a library or purchase a copy from Amazon or a bookstore.

    Well, the only advice I got for you would be to play it safe. After all, if it all was a big lie, then big deal. We die, and there is nothing after that. We, shall you say, become one with the universe. Nothing happens. Woop-de-doo.

    BUT, if it's all true, and you were one of the people who sincerely believed there was nothing after death, then you're pretty much screwed. You go to Hell for not believing, and spend eternity there.

    Now let's weigh the options:

    1) Believe and have religion be true, leads to life in Heaven

    2) Believe and have religion be false, you lose nothing but a little bit of your life that you would have spent wasting away in front of the T.V. anyway.

    3) Don't believe and have religion be false, you GAIN a grand total of about a month in which you waste away.

    4) Don't believe and have religion be true, you spend eternity in Hell, being tortured by Satan.

    Hmmmmm...what choice sounds the best to you? Ding ding ding! That's right, the choice would be #1. You really have nothing to lose by believing, and in all actuallity, you might even gain a few good friends!

    Hope this helps!

    These are questions that all people ask themselves from time to time. It is how you answer and believe that will effect your eternal existence. Just have faith, that is all there is to it. Believe that Jesus died for your sins, repent and be baptized. Feed on Him in the Holy Eucharist. Have strong faith and by that I mean REAL faith, and that means doing good works and being charitable. Love your neighbor. Follow His Commandments and the teachings of the Holy Church, but be sure you know what those teachings are and don't take somebody's word on it, find out for yourself.

    Questions like these can do two things: 1) they can strengthen your faith to a new level, or 2) they can utterly destroy your faith. Don't let the devil win. He is out to make you enter a state of conflict, and will use his favorite device on you whenever possible, and that is deception.

    Good question and Paul made the same point (1 Corinthians 15:32). Like you I couldn't see the point of following the Bible if it isn't true, but it is. I was able to prove that the Bible is the word of God, and that the Jehovah's Witnesses are the only one's following it. You have to prove that to yourself, and that means studying the Bible, together with making sure what it say's. Because at the end of the day, if it is true, then there's a lot riding on it (John 17:3).

    1 Corinthians 15:32

    If, like men, I have fought with wild beasts at Eph′esus, of what good is it to me? If the dead are not to be raised up, “let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we are to die.”

    John 17:3

    This means everlasting life, their taking in knowledge of you, the only true God, and of the one whom you sent forth, Jesus Christ.

    There isn't much we can do about that I suspect. I think there is a bit of truth and a lot of nonsense in all religions. I prefer to be my own Priestess and commune with my God through His natural world. I take Her energy into myself and sometimes send it to others. Uncomplicated. Non judgemental. Just right for me. 'Harm none' could be a good foundation for all paths to observe.

    It's a moot point because we'll never find out on this earth.

    However it would leave a lot of people very disappointed, for this reason I hope it doesn't happen, although I myself am not religious.

    u r finding everyone faulty and only negative. the fact is that there is a black veil between you and the external world. You will have to light your inner lamp for you to be able to see light in everyone and in every little single thing.

    Pascal's wager buddy.

    2 possible scenarios.

    1st- Religion is false (No heaven, hell, etc. ), in which case you don't loose much, you aren't harmed by having believed.

    2nd- Religions is true, In which case you're screwed.

    Pascal says its better to play it safe, than to be sorry.
