144,000 People Will Enter Heaven According to JW

I asked one of them, “If I’m not going to heaven why do you want to preach to me?” I’m earth bound right? Then allow me to decide how to live happily while I can. I will much rather seize my happiness in the here and now since the candidates for heaven have already been chosen.

Am I the only one who thinks the idea of having only one tribe or group enter heaven is ridiculous? Anyway, I’m going to drink red wine this evening but I promise I will not get drunk.
