Jehovah’s Witnesses deny the eternal nature of man, i.e. the continued existence of the soul of man after death and instead believe that upon death man ceases consciously to exist until such time as he is resurrected. This doctrine is known as the doctrine of Soul Sleep. We tackle and expose this doctrine head on in this teaching, proving from Scripture that man is more than simply a material being empowered by God's life force but that he actually is a living eternal being. We also consider what the Watch Tower teaches regarding the doctrine of hell and eternal punishment.
