Who will God save?
Who will God save? (if he is real) An Atheist who does not believe in him but is a good person? or a christian, catholic etc (other religion). who does not obey him?
Assuming God exists, it only makes sense for God to save the most moral people, the ones who treated the lowest members of society well, and did their best to be a good person. To say God will only save people who say some short prayer (even if it's said at the end of a life lived as a mass murder) is absurd and not even a view worth considering by any rational person.
This is a very easy question to answer, thanks for asking -

The Bible is real and very true. Understood by some and misrepresented by many - Jesus Christ is the ONLY answer for the problems of humanity -
I used the Bible to answer the question - hope you enjoy!
John 10:9 and John 14:6 tell us He is the Only way to Heaven and eternal life, verses eternal damnation -
I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
(John 10:9-11 KJV)
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
(John 14:6 KJV)
And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
(Acts 2:21 KJV)
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
(Romans 10:9-13 KJV)
What are you going to do when you find out that " GOD and his ANGLES are EXTRATERRESTRIALS"????
2Pe 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
God will save anyone who wants to be saved. He calls out to the lost on a daily basis. There is not a person alive that He will not save. He will not force anyone to salvation.
I generally think of it this way; if there was a god, and he truly was 'good', he wouldn't care if you worshiped him or not. He would only care that you were a good person and lived your life well. If, however, he acted like an over-emotional teenager and struck down anyone who ate ham on Sundays, then I wouldn't want to be in a heaven with him anyway.
by grace and not by works. . .
If there is a god, god will decide who is saved.
Humans will ascribe whatever morality they like to make others believe they are the chosen.
The creator I believe in wants to save them all.
Not sure if all are savable. . .
girlgonestrong thanks for dropping by.. I'm not good at English. so maybe I used inappropriate statement or examples for you. I'm sorry . good person...that's what I believe,,we all have goodness deep inside. I don't read the Bible often or should I say I haven't read the Bible for a long time now. the reason why I'm asking this is because I just want to know about this, and that, I'm sorry if I'm too ignorant. haha

Why is it that if a good person claims to see god it is believed but....if a serial killer or crack addict says that it is not believed? For believers do you believe God would only talk to positive people?

Is this an egotistical God?Is this a quantum God that doesn't exist without observers?Was this a bored God that wanted playthings?Why would a totally perfect and self containing alpha-omega need/want creatures to complete itself?Or are we like God's 'body' cells and that we are all a part of...

What is it that makes you a good person? Is it that God told you to and you fear the fires of hell? Is it something you even understand about yourself?My reason for trying daily to be a good person, the best I can be, is that I want to live in a better world. If I am ever to realize this desire...
