    Do you think your God(s) would allow non-believers of your religion into Heaven?

      Non-believers are sent to hell to burn for eternity.

      The problem is to decide which hell they'll be sent. Will it be Christian hell, Islamic hell or some other hell?

      I visualize myself standing before the many gods that believers have created for themselves, all of them arguing and fighting over which hell I will be sent.

      Meanwhile, I slip out the back with Hendrix, Morrison and Joplin for whiskey and beers. smile

          Did you feel a great need to threaten me with a personal hell? Does it make you feel better to threaten others with your irrational beliefs?

          Shameful.

      I am a christian but not the traditional Christian. I did not learn my christianitity from church. I learned it from reading the Bible myself and have come to learn what christianity means from Jesus' point of view. Most Christians know what they hear at church and thats good enough for them.

      But, it was not to me.  Too many unanswered and very onesided doctrines taught.  In my reading I have learned many things that were contrary to what I had been taught mostly having to do with things like drinking and smoking and other taboo's. 

      But, one thing I do know in my heart is this not everybody is going to heaven. We were not intended to live in heaven, revelations tells us that there will be a new heaven and a new earth.  Some people will inhabit the new earth and some the new heaven (this will be made up of Jesus' government. 

      Some people will be placed in the new heaven and some people will live on the new earth.  God, never intended for us to be floating around in Heaven.  There is live after this system.  My Bible also says that God judges a man according to his heart and God is Just in his judgement. And that in the End, every knee will bow and every tongue will confess Jesus is Lord (of the people).

      Many Christians believe that they are the only ones who will see eternal life. My heart does not tell me this.  Many people who think they have it all figured out have squeezed God in this little box and have no clue what his Big Picture is.  I have addressed this in many different ways on my hubpages.

      I think that only God knows how things will go. But, I feel so strongly in my heart that I am so greatful to be a Child of Grace. Because I accept Jesus now and I truly try to live according to Jesus' commands.  We are not to judge others. We are called to be compassionate, forgiving, longsuffering and loving too all people. 

      We do not a have big enough perspective to see as God sees and we cannot make assumptions as to what will happen. Most Christians believe that The Bible in uncorrupted,  but the Bible tells us that in the endtime the truth will be hidden in the hearts of man. 

      Also there was a special curse laid aside for anyone who changes the Word.  God does not set up curses for things that may happen. He already knows what is, and will happen. He does not make idle curses for just in case.  So this tells me that over time the truth will be lost and many men will be to blame. It will be a gradual change.  So with this in mind, we as Christians cannot truly answer this question.  I know this answer may offend many (hard-core ) Christians, and if that is the case I beg that you please pray and ask God show only truth. And start researching again.  Always in Truth, Love, and Peace.

      My God, source, creator would say. "ok since i gave you choice of freedom" then go where you want to go. Those who think hell exist and subconsciously believe their actions will take them there then may end up there.  Those who believe in heaven may end up in their heaven probably still afraid of heaven if they break the rules, atheist will probably end up nowhere just wondering " ok ok when do i wake up, enough blankness already"

            May be the "Atheists" are already "brain dead" while they are still alive. They will, perhaps, awaken when the Creator-God Allah YHWH would resurrect them for the accountability in the  hereafter:

            [36:53] They will say, ‘O! woe to us! who has raised us up from our place of sleep? This is what the Gracious God had promised, and the Messengers spoke the truth.’
            [36:54] It will be but one blast and lo! they will all be brought before Us.
            [36:55] And on that day, no soul will be wronged in aught; nor will you be rewarded but for what you used to do.

      You do not have to be of one particular religion, it is Believe in God
      and entry through Jesus, by faith. So in answer to your question if some one did not believe in my Religion, it would not matter. But believe in God does matter, and only God judges that, not us.

      many Religions including mine, take the scripture and change it to their interpretation of it.  Take Litterary liscense if you will. But there's- nor mine, is not the only way. 

      The path is wide, the doorway narrow, through Jesus you enter. What you do along the way, baptism, deeds, works etc does not get you there exclusively.

      It is a false notion to believe that such a large portion of mankind will be consigned to eternal torment based on the deceptions which they have fallen prey to. Rather, the ammount of glory which one obtains in the next life will be dependant on the ammount of light and knowledge one has received in this one. And that is based on their deeds, words, actions, integrity, faithfulness, love of others, etc.

            I don't have to ask you; I already know that it is the pull of the Creator-God Allah YHWH; and everything is moving by His commandment and cannot be stopped by anyone except Him.

            Ultimately everybody will reach Him:

            [41:10] Say: ‘Do you really disbelieve in Him Who created the earth in two days? And do you set up equals to Him?’ That is the Lord of the worlds.
            [41:12] Then He turned to the heaven while it was something like smoke, and said to it and to the earth: ‘Come ye both of you, willingly or unwillingly.’ They said, ‘We come willingly.’
            [41:13] So He completed them into seven heavens in two days, and He revealed to each heaven its function. And We adorned the lowest heaven with lamps for light and for protection. That is the decree of the Mighty, the All-Knowing.

              “I don't have to ask you; I already know that it is the pull of the Creator-God Allah.”

              I'll let Steven Hawking know... the new name for God is  Gravity !

              It never ceases to amaze me just how fast the religious mind jumps and changes claiming all facts as their very own.

              You can't have it all ways, The old Testament, which you are suppose to hold as sacrosanct as the  WORD of your God  clearly states that in the beginning he created the Heaven and the Earth first and all that nonsense about “Let there be Light, all on the first day...”  Where did that light come from  if he didn’t come up with the sun and the moon till day three ?   And all of this without the slightest mention of gravity.

              If you were the least bit sceptical, or realistic about all of this,  you might just ask yourself;  if  your God is so powerful and all knowing how come he got the order of the creation of our Solar system so wrong ?     

              And if you still don’t get it,  The Sun, that big orange thing in the sky, is the source of our light, heat and life.  To get a separation of day and night the Earth has to rotate, to get the seasons the Earth has to orbit the Sun.   Don’t you find it even remotely strange that non e of this gets a mention in the Old Testament ?

    [2:63] Surely, the Believers, and the Jews, and the Christians and the Sabians — whichever party from among these truly believes in Allah and the Last Day and does good deeds — shall have their reward with their Lord, and no fear shall come upon them, nor shall they grieve.

    There is only one God, although there are many religions, and yes... The Creative Energy will accept any soul back to its source, regardless of their belief or lack of. There is no heaven and hell, the way I see it. These are only emotional levels where one feels miserable or content. You can be rich and handsome, have everything in the world and still feel miserable. That's hell. On the other hand, you can have nothing and be happy with yourself. That's paradise! smile

She suggests, Los Angeles, he says, no too many Catholics are there. She suggests, Washington D.C., he says, no too many Catholics are there.

The Creator-God Allah YHWH revealed Himself to all the people; of course in their own languages, so they have different names depicting the same Creator; hence his different names. We Ahmadiyya believe in all those names.
