I was told this by a Jehovah's witness in my class at school. I am now very confused and have 2 big questions to ask.

1) I looked up a bunch of bible verses and it sepcifically mentions sinners being sent to hell, the lake of fire, eternal damnation and that sort of thing. Why don't they believe that part of the bible?

2) If there really is no fear of going to hell, why would you even bother being religous? Wouldn't it be better to live a nice life with no olbigation to god, and when it's time for you to die, you're gone, rather than serving a god your entire life so that you can live forever, which I assume would get really boring after a while.

The religion thread should help you with those questions.

by people who have kept on

trying when there seemed to be no hope at all
