Christians: Can a Non-Christian Go to Heaven?

In john14: Jesus said he is " the Only way" in acts 4:12,no other name by which men shall be saved.and the references are just too many.

But now the multibillion dollar question stands all day long! Can a non-christian who does not believe in Christ go to heaven? I'm talking about Muslims and other religions like the bahi and judaism. Can a well thinking person answer me without any atom of fanaticism? I need cogent proofs.

Only God can explain somethings. Christ said its Ɣ☺ΰя way of life that wud make you save. There is nowhere in d bible where it Ȋ̝̊̅§ said once you know christ you are a christian or be a church goer then Ÿ̲̣̣̣̥ø̲̣̣̥u̶̲̥̅̊'ll be a christian. Looking @ todays churches Ǻn̶̲̥̅̊ԃ knowing what God represents Ǻn̶̲̥̅̊ԃ what christ represents hmmm, you may wanna reMain in Ɣ☺ΰя bedrooms and talk to God instead of church. I dunno sincerely, its completely can speak cos these so called christians do worse things than pple who don't go to church atall. Search your hrt Ǻn̶̲̥̅̊ԃ know God.

ASK YOURSELF 'ARE YOU QUALIFIED FOR HEAVEN IF JESUS SHOULD COME NOW?

WHY ARE YOU BOTHERED ABOUT WHETHER A NON-CHRISTIAN WILL MAKE HEAVEN?

WHY CAN'T YOU CONCENTRATE YOUR ENERGIES ON YOUR OWN PERSONAL RACE TO HEAVEN IF YOU REALLY WISH TO BE THERE.

PLEASE, VISIT THE WEBSITE www.divinerevelations.info

READ THE POSTS AND YOU WILL KNOW CLEARLY WHO WILL MAKE HEAVEN AND WHO WILL END UP IN HELL.

John 14:6 says that JESUS IS THE WAY THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE

Acts 4:12 says that there is no other way to God given to men apart from the name of Jesus Christ

John 3:3 says that we must be born again before we can inherit the kingdom of God

Revelation 21:8 says also that the unbelieving will have a part in the lake of fire

A non-christian will not go to the Heaven that the Bible is talking about.There may be other heavens in other religions which their members may find themselves.To the best of my knowledge,there is only one Heaven and no non-xtian will get there

2ndly, not every xtian will get there.Only those xtians who did the will of the Father(Ecclesiastes 12:13)(Luke 9:62) will get to heaven

Xtianity is not a religion.it is a way of life and a personal,individual relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.It is individual and personal because everybody will stand before Christ and give his own account on the last day.(Matthew 25:32-46)

Further arguments are vain words(Ephesians 3:5-6)

The bible is very clear on who will get into heaven(Matthew 24:13)

MUST I GO TO HEAVEN TO ENJOY TRUE HAPPINESS?

Nope!

People who don't know about God today have a better chance to live forever than those who know about him and fail to keep his laws.

Whatever!

This is Jesus' verdict:

"I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes to the Father, but by me." -- John 14:6

Paige Patterson came to this conclusion:

"It comes down to a question of truth. Every false religious expression is a religion of darkness. That doesn't mean there are no good things in that faith. But if Jesus is to be taken seriously when He says, 'No one comes to the Father but through Me,' every other proposal is one of darkness."

Hear this without the shedding of blood there will be no remission of sin,only the blood of God can save humanity.

it is the blood of JESUS that pays the price.The FATHER only looks at us through the blood of JESUS CHRIST, is the TICKET to heaven.

no other way.

thanks

@sarah j, this is umbelievable o, just hearing this for the first time, could it be that people suffering in nigeria, has been cast into hell as a result of their past life when they were living on earth, and the majority living good in europe and America are in heaven cos they were good in thier time on earth? this is shocking to believe that heaven and hell are on planet earth

Heaven and hell are on earth. Thats what alot of people don't know. Some people are living in heaven, alot are in purgatory and most are living in hell! You are reincarnated judged on how you live each of your lives. If you were a prick in one of your lives, once you die you will be reincarnated with a worse life than your previous etc,

My brother bab787 made a mistake check 2:111. Not eleven. That is one of the several verses showing that believing that christ died for your sins is just a claim; a claim unregconized by God Himself.

Please if you believe in God, then read the Kor'an to know what the real truth is!

Are you denying the existence of that verse? The verse is a challenge to you, so counter it with verses from your book and I will come with rebuttal from your book supporting the above as well.

From the Qu'ran: And they say: "You will not attain Paradise(Heaven biblically) save you are a Christain or Jew. These are their own saying! Say (O Muhamme'd): Have you received a covenant from All'ah(God), truly Alla'h break not His covenant.Or tell ye concerning All'ah that which ye know not?

Any person who lives in obedience to the laws of God will go to heaven irrespective of what religion he or she professes to belong. Religion, sex, colour, statues and things of such nature are not requirments for heaven. The laws of God is independent of the various religious creeds. Any person who loves God with all his heart and loves his neighbour as himself will find his way to heaven. Christians and non Christians experience suffering, joy, miracle, disease, success, failure etc. Diamond is diamond wheather it is held by a christian, moslem, budhist is inconsequencial. If a christian sows a viable seed in a fertile soil, he or she will have the seed germinate and blossom into a fruit bearing seed in the course of time. A moslem or a budhist who does the same will achieve the same result. If however a christian want to show that he or she operates above the basic law of agriculture by sowing the seeds in sahara desert, he or she will reap a roasted and dead seed and no amount of prayer can change it. The same will happen to any believer of other religions who sow the seeds in Sahara desert. Ofcourse this is an anology that can be extended to spiritual matters too.

Heaven and hell are but the creations of God, now will the Xtians go to hell or heaven? will non-Xtians go to hell or heaven?

In my opinion this depends on the God we are talking about, and what that Gods message said about those that do not believe in him.

Christianity (presumed to be followership of Jesus) in my opinion has the least requirements ifor heaven, n as much as the only requirement here is for one JUST to believe, what ever wrong a person does , there is no , and cannot be any punishment executable by man ( let him who is without sin cast the first stone, and all men are sinners!) So if a man kills another man, the punishment? - nothing! God here did not say anything to man ( in xtian phylosophy, we are all sinners so a man will have to wait for judgement day (or other man made law- depending on the approval of the senate) so basic positions on criminal and even occasionally civic laws which exist in both Judaism and Islam are totally wiped out in xtianity. so leave well as long as you believe in Jesus (according to xtianity) the only question remains on the orign of the scriptures not in terms of historic facts, but in terms of authenticity of the message beign Godly in the first place and not a creation of the Romans, and the emperor Alexander!

in Islam it is dfferent, here alot of passages , quite alot say " those who believe and do good works" so here in as much as just believe is an article of faith , you must wrap it all up with good works, apart from thaat even then it is not like these much good work is adequate to buy you heaven, NO! it all has to be buttered up by the mercy of God,

So you see the positions differ and the requirments vary, God know best.

peace.

I look forward to explaining that there are TWO SALVATIONS!!

that is what the BIBLE teaches

Not all go to heaven, now most have never even heard of the name above all names wherin one must believe (and therefore be obedient to the point of 'death-of-self-will' in order to 'enter heaven'.

The very fact that so much good is done by non-Christians, and by contrast- so much evil by Christians - should tell us that when Jesus in John 5:28-29 spoke of the Ressurection of the 'Righteous and the non-Righteous' , there are clearly two ressurections!

These two ressurections are emphasized in the last book of the Bible.

In Revelation the first ressurection is spoken of in distinction to the second ressurection!

Yes indeed, Revelation chapter 20 verse 6 gives it to us clearly that those raised first are (1) untouched by death, and (2) they rule over , those raised in the second ressurection (who still can die - they are not 'death-proof').

Just a start of a 'train' of thought - if you are a thinking person and not indoctrinated in a set-pattern:

Consider: who will be ruled over (if those going to heaven are to be 'Kings and Priests' - over themselves?)

Consider: who will inherit the earth (Jesus in Matthew 5 says the 'meek')

- I shall stop there -- looking forward to the responses! fFor More thought-provoking discussion- www.biblestudentsonline.net and click on the Discussion Board/Forum -- it's interactive! smile

HND,

true humility my friend is submitting to the finished work of Christ, without trying to be anything of your own self but that which christ has made you to be. It is accepting that his work for us on that cross was sufficient, final and powerful enough for the salvation of all mankind.

It has nothing to do with leaving the Master's table to eat with dogs.

It has nothing to do with denying the Lord Jesus and his testimony of himself as the way the truth and the life, and the only mediator between God and man.

According to the words of Paul the Apostle , they ae ignorant of the righteousness of God and they go about to establish their own righteousness, they have not submitted to the righteousnessof God.

let me give u some political answer,

From the original definition of conservative, a person who tends to stick to the original and never change. It makes sense that if a person sticks to the bible without concidering the developments in the current trends or society, such person can be called a conservative . A conservative is not only a political word. We see it in philosophy and psychology and even in everyday life.

Politics has a lot to do with religion, the people that killed Jesus were politicians, infact jesus was killed due to politics because he cliamed to be the king of the jews. Its like impeaching a president in the president generation, do u think they will be looking at u do ur thing?

the original idea of papacy was religion but due to the development in this current generation, papacy is gradually turning to politics. Hence Pope John paul the second traveled around the world to expand souls for christ. During the time of paul, there is nothing like aeroplane and saul did not get to see what john paul saw before he died. What John paul saw contributed to the shift from religion to politics. For example the adolph hitler rose to take the world, the hirroshima bomb, all of these devlish acts both religion and politics teamed together to prevent it. The politics comming with power, religion comming with virtures and reasoning,

Regarding ur third question, Soul is your inner consceince. When u r sleeping, soul is alive, when ur dead, soul is alive. Soul is the amargedeon b/w your fresh and your spirit. They are always fighting, You are the "hot damsel" b/w your soul and your fresh. Soul is wife of concience and it is hard to talk about one without the other,

Both christians and non christians have souls and that is why when u sin or do bad thing, you will reflect on it.

People take marrijuana and other hard drugs before they do bad things. this is to prevent the soul from remembering their actions becasue honestly as a man, u can deny u dont have it, u dont need to be a christian to have it but these are some of the virtures of christianity that makes us belive that indeed there is good,

larger_20,

I feel u,

but u see, a christian isn't someone who just repented.

To repent means to change your way of thinking.

A charistian is a lot more than that. He is actually a partaker of the

divine nature. He is a possesor of eternal life and of heaven and earth.

When you fully understand this, you will see your christian life as an

active vibrant adventure in faith.

When you are involved world evangelism, there is a freshness you will

constantly experience each time you see souls turn to the Lord.

God will continually refresh you through His Spirit and promote you with

His gifts and with his presence.

Each time you cast out devils as you pronounce that name of

Jesus' you are exited; each time the sick are healed through you, you

are exited.

Never let these things become common to you. For many seek to see

these things that you see and have not seen them.

Never get used to God for there is always something new with God,

always another level to get to in Him.

I wish i gave my heart to Christ a lot earlier in life 'cos by now i would

have known God's Word a lot more.

I might have had several visitations of Jesus as He appears in my

room, talking with me face to face.

I might have had several visons and revelations of heaven, and even

translations into the hevenlies.

Arise and shine for your light is come and the glory of God is risen upon you!
