Will God condemn Muslims to hell?
Salvation is available to anyone. It isn’t reserved to only Christians!
John 3:16-17 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” NIV
2 Cor 5:18-19 “All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them.” NIV
1 Tim 1:15 “Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners-of whom I am the worst.” NIV
Salvation is a free gift to EVERYONE! This includes Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, tall people, small people, thin people as well as more corpulent people. Salvation is available to anyone, no matter their race, religion or political affiliation.
Eph 2:8-9 “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith-and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God- not by works, so that no one can boast.” NIV
There is never a reason for grace, except the One giving it has an abundant love towards the offender. God loves you my friend!
The gospel message is for the whole world. Doesn’t this explain why so many, no matter their religious affiliation, accept Jesus in their life? Jesus is alive and has become real to them and to me personally. Would you like to get to know Jesus personally? Why not answer the Saviour’s Call?
Years ago, I married a man from another country. He acted like someone with a heart of gold. So kind and soft spoken, NO FOUL MOUTH, no roughness or rude MASCULINE ATTITUDE talking, like the types I grew up around in West Texas, I thought I had a diamond in the rough! His sister then started trying to break us up. I found later, it was his mother behind it. His mother also sent his father to this country to break us up, even though I had helped them financially for years before we even got married.
You see, his country had changed to Socialism and they had lost everything….! Because Socialist governments strip their citizens…. They rented a house and had no furniture even…I gave him money to buy all of that. Through all of the years, even BEFORE we got married, and had 3 children, and started a business, she still tried to get us to break up. She did not understand my kind heart…….I was too kind I suppose for their people, who feel everyone is out to get you. They have so many people betraying each other and they were the type to USE OTHERS ALSO. They feel if someone is nice, they are STUPID, AND IN THEIR SOCIETY IT IS…OK…TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF SOMEONE STUPID, AND IT IS ACTUALLY THEIR RESPONSIBILITY…TO TAKE ADVANTAGE, BECAUSE IF …THEY…DO NOT, THEN OTHERS WILL THINK THEY ARE STUPID AND TRY TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF …THEM….!! GET THE INSANITY….OF THE CULTURE…????
Through the years, all of the grief that my husband gave me, because his sister or mother did not want him to even touch my hand or hair in front of her, that attitude then went over into our private lives. With all of their insisting and hating, he became cold and verbally cruel. He also had 7 brothers and sisters also who said snide remarks also. He brought them all here into this country and into our business to work also. It was total Hell.
These people even would bring a girl every April, to show to him to see if he would marry her RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME!!!. Their cruelty, and coldness was unbearable. His father’s screaming at me because I had bought a nice car for myself, WITH MY OWN MONEY, and that I was not a Muslim, even caused me to loose a baby several years ago. His words, “A good wife doesn’t spend her money on herself, she SAVES IT AND SPENDS IT ON HER CHILDREN AND HER HUSBAND.” I guess that my large wealth was not considered, it was in his mind THAT IT WAS ALL MY HUSBANDS, NOT MINE!
THE REASON I DID NOT LEAVE HIM… Early into the marriage, when my oldest son was 1 1/2, my husband would mock me and taunt me saying he was going to disappear into the frontiers of Pakistan with our son.
I checked with a Lawyer to get out. HE TOLD ME THE FACTS. Since I had married a man from Pakistan, the Pakistani GOVERNMENT recognized DUEL CITIZENSHIP, and considered me AND MY CHILDREN a citizen of their country. In fact in their laws, THEY COULD IF THEY HAD A WAR….THEY COULD DRAFT MY CHILDREN…AND FORCE THEM TO GO BACK THERE AND FIGHT IN THE MILITARY….IF THEY WANTED TO… He said, In their country women were second class citizens, and if divorced, the man always got the child. If I was not Muslim then they always gave the child to the Muslim parent, even if they were a criminal. They would not help the U.S. government to get back my child if my husband ran with him. He also said, that my husband could get that child and in 1 1/2 hours be to a border of my country by plane, and out of the country, and I could do nothing about it, because he was the legal father, and could take a child wherever he wanted to without my permission and I COULD NOT GET HIM BACK, EVER!
SO I HUNG ON, AND TOOK THE VERBAL ABUSE ALL THESE YEARS… ……… FOR MY CHILDREN. I KNEW I WOULD NEVER SEE THEM AGAIN.!!! I RAISED THEM TO MAKE SURE THEY NEVER TURNED OUT LIKE HIM OR HIS FAMILY….AND TOUGHT RESPECT FOR WOMEN AND OTHER PEOPLE….. THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL SOULS….
The UNUSUAL THING, was my husband’s oldest sister’s husband, was so kind. He would always call up and apologize for their actions, and try to explain how their minds thought so I would UNDERSTAND WHERE THEY WERE COMING FROM. He always tried to make being married to a Muslim easier for me.
Some years ago from complications from his diabetes, he got a blood clot in the edge of his heart. He went to the hospital, and when we first got there, I was the one he ASKED FOR FIRST. So I and his wife went into the room.
He grabbed my hand, and said this special word that we shared and knew the meaning of. I knew he wanted my religious healing. Without thinking, my first response was to turn it over to God, and Immediately I saw an intense beam of energy coming down from the ceiling about 2 feet across. I looked at his body, and it was like a glowing light, you could see all the way through it, like light. I saw this black spot on the left side of his heart, I focused on that spot, and watched it, and in a few seconds it disappeared. My brother in law, then said “OK, It is OK.” and let go of my hand, and said it is OK, the others can come in now. I let them go in and visit also.
In 15 minutes, the Dr. came out and said, “We thought it was a blood clot, but we were mistaken, there is no clot.” ……The miracles of God!……
He later told me that when he was there, a Man came to him and said it was his time and to go with him. He told him that he still had some things to take care of first. He said the man said “OK, I will give you 1 year.”
2 years later, he was going to a trip to Mecca, which every Muslim has to do at least once in their lifetime. As he was leaving, he confided in me that HE WOULD NOT BE COMING BACK, and if he had ever offended me in any way, that he wanted to make it right with me. I told him I understood, and if he needed to go on to his maker, it was OK with me, but I had appreciated his help all these years making my life a bit easier, being married to a Muslim, and thanks for being in my life. He had made it easier for having passed my way.
He went with his wife, one of my brother-in-laws, and my mother in law. He went on to Pakistan to see family he had left behind years ago, after his Mecca visit, and promptly got sick and died in the hospital.
The brother-in-law brought me a message back for him.
He had said to tell me that on his trip to Mecca, in one of the smaller shrines, that THIS TIME…TWO MEN IN WHITE ROBES HAD COME TO HIM…AND SAID THAT IT WAS HIS TIME, AND TO COME WITH THEM. HE HAD ASKED TO BE ALLOWED TO GO ON TO PAKISTAN AND SEE HIS LAST RELATIVES AND THEY HAD AGREED.
I told the brother-in-law about the other man and that the man had said one year but in fact he was allowed 2 years to almost the day, to get his business taken care of.
Your question is: Will God Condemn Muslims to Hell?
Well, these guys THAT CAME FOR HIM did not seem like they were from Hell……
I feel that he was a type of one of God’s Guardian Angels here in this world of Hell and Grief, making it a bit easier for those around him to just make it through WITHOUT GIVING UP. He did not talk his religion, he LIVED IT. He did not try to force his opinion on anyone, or his religion on anyone, like my father in law always did. And no matter what anyone else’s opinion on it is….I feel that God took ONE OF HIS OWN BACK TO BE WITH HIM…..
Quaisar Simuala, YOU WILL BE GREATLY MISSED!!!
There is a very plain and simple answer to this is. Not just for Muslims but for ANY religious group. In order to be accepted into the kingdom of heaven, one MUST believe that Jesus Christ was born, lived, crucified, died, and rose from the dead to sit at the right hand of God our Father almighty to save us from our sins and from the pit of fire, HELL!. He is our Savior from hell. That is the ONLY thing that will save us from that! Nothing more, and nothing less! By GRACE we are saved, His holy grace! Not by actions of any kind! MAY ALL BE BLESSED!!!
Choosing Christ as savior is the only way to heaven and inheriting life, and those that do not choose Him condemn themselves. God condemns no one. If there is sincere salvation, God will deal with the doctrinal issues in a persons life. I am living proof, I tried “mixing” religions, and God dealt with me. It was a process of deprogramming but it can be done.
It is a sin to have other Gods before Him, but I don’t believe Muslims will not be condemned to hell, if they they lead a peaceful life.
I think that Muslims could be condemned to hell if they had the chance to hear the truth about the ONLY living God and did NOT accept it. However, I think that they could also go to hell simply out of ignorance just like anyone who did not know or care to know about Jesus.
Coming as it does after the September 11 tragedy, this is a loaded question. Let me first say that God makes no distinction between race or religion. God does not condemn anyone to a place called ‘hell’. He will however, cause those who reject His Son, Jesus Christ as Savior, and fail to confess their sins, to be cast into a lake of fire, or be destroyed by fire. This destruction of the wicked by fire is what is referred to as ‘hell’.
Islam is a religion that worships God. The same God that we have, that is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. They do not however acknowledge Jesus as the Son of God, but rather as a prophet. Throughout the centuries the people of Islam have not fared well at the hand of ‘Christians’. For centuries, raids and counter raids were conducted by the Crusaders on the side of the Christian church of Rome, and by first the Saracens and later the Ottoman Empire on the side of the Muslims. History reveals in stark clarity the cruelty, viciousness, and slaughter conducted by both sides of this conflict. Unfortunately, the followers of Islam, the Arab peoples, did not learn from this conflict that Christianity is a religion of love.
The only way to salvation is through Jesus Christ. The bible makes this quite clear.
Acts 4:12-AV Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
Does this mean therefore that because Muslims do not hold that Jesus Christ is Son of God and Savior, that they will all be lost? Not necessarily. God is above all fair. He does not hold people accountable to laws they do not know about. Millions have lived and died on this planet without ever hearing about Jesus Christ. They will be judged on how they used the light they had.
John 15:22-AV If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin.
John 15:24-AV If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.
Romans 7:7-AV What shall we say then? [Is] the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet.
We have two legacies from our forefather Adam. One is the propensity to sin against God. The other is the knowledge of the difference between good and evil. Everyone who has walked on this earth will at sometime in their life, whether they were aware of God or not, made a choice whether to do good or to do evil. We are told that if we have love for our neighbor, that is a self sacrificing love as Jesus had for us, that we will have fulfilled the requirements of the law.
1John 3:11-AV For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.
1John 3:14-AV We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not [his] brother abideth in death.
Romans 13:10-AV Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love [is] the fulfilling of the law.
Galatians 5:14-AV For all the law is fulfilled in one word, [even] in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
Throughout all peoples, there will be those who live by love for each other, and those who don’t. From looking at the verses concerning not having sin where there is no knowledge of the law, one might wonder if going to a people and preaching the word of God is actually doing them a favor. Yet this is what we are commanded to do. When the Gospel is preached, those who are living by love will recognize it instantly. Their salvation will be assured. However, many who would otherwise be lost will hear and be saved as a result. Should a people never hear the Gospel, my understanding of the matter is that those who are living by love, will be accepted by Jesus as true followers of Him.
Amongst Christians there are those who live by love and those who don’t. Even though these people openly claim to be Christian, they will fall into the category in the following.
Matthew 7:22-AV Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
Matthew 7:23-AV And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
The key to the whole thing is love. Love for other people. In the Christian this is to be expected. How many Christians today will bring a homeless person into their home, clean them up, feed them and give them a bed? How many will go out of their way, often at some monetary cost to themselves, to help someone out? Many Christians like to be called Christian, like to drive expensive cars to church, like to be seen to be giving to charity, are always ready to tell others about how God has saved them, but how many will get their hands dirty to help?
Make no mistake. Those who are not willing to give of themselves in a personal way and ‘get their hands dirty’ will not demonstrate love, and will not be known to Jesus. Those who love others as themselves are following in the Savior’s footsteps even if they are unaware of it. They will not be lost, whether they be Muslim, Christian, Hindu, or of a remote native tribe.
It is the responsibility of Christians everywhere to set this example of love. They are the ones with the knowledge of the truth, they are the ones entrusted with the task. What sort of example are you setting, dear reader? Are you saved? Or do you just think you are? Are you setting an example of love that will draw people of religions that do not have Jesus, into the fold? Or are you like the Christian Crusaders of the dark ages, bringing hatred and division and turning people away from the love of God? If you have any doubts whatsoever about your salvation, answer ‘The Savior’s Call’ in this newsletter.
God I do not believes condemns Muslims to hell, unfortunately, their fate is sealed by believing a lie, for there is but 1 truth and 1 way and it is narrow…John 14:6 “I am the Way, The Truth and The Life, says Jesus Christ The Son of God, who died to redeem mankind back to God through his sacrifice on the Cross and “NO ONE” comes to the Father except by Me. Final answer : Because of Christ The Best is soon to Be.
God will definitely judge the Moslems according to his word, the Moslems will be judged like everybody else, if Allah, the Koran and Mohammed are of God, then good enough. God has given everyone enough time to chose between false religion and false teachings.
Answer: John 3:18-19 says “He that believeth on Him (Jesus) is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.”
The word “believe” means to cling to, trust in, rely on and adhere to what God says. Therefore, if anyone believes on(clings to, relies on and adheres to what He says) Jesus is not condemned. The word condemn comes from a Greek word which means to sentence, judge or damn. Jesus said that if we cling to, rely on and adhere to what He says, then we are not judged, sentenced or damned to eternal punishment. However, if we do not cling to, rely on and adhere to what He says, then we are judged, sentenced and damned already. The question then becomes: Do we really believe on Jesus?
Romans 8:1 says “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” Christ comes from a Greek word which means Messiah, Anointed One. Christ is the Anointed One and His Anointing. It is the Anointing (God’s Anointing) that is the burden moving, yoke breaking, yoke destroying power of God. When someone clings to, relies on and adheres to what Jesus says, then they are in Christ (The Anointed One and His Anointing) and are not under condemnation.
2nd Peter 3:9 says “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’s desire is to see everyone saved. This includes Muslims. God loves everyone and it should be our desire for them to be saved. May God bless you as you seek His truth concerning this topic.
Matthew 25:31-46 tells us who will be in Heaven and who will go to Hell.
There are only 2 groups.Our eternal destiny is decided by what we have done or not done for Him in the person of the poor and the suffering. In that day Christ does not present before men the great work He had done for them in giving His Life for their redemption, He presents the faithful work they have done for Him.On His Right Hand will be those who fed, clothed,visited and gave to their neighbours,they are Heavenbound On His Left Hand,are those who sinned ,and those who are religious and felt no need of a Saviour.
“Inasmuch as ye have done it unto the least of these My Brethren ye have done it unto Me.”
Many will have known little of His Theology but they have cherished His Principles.Through the influence of the Holy Spirit they have been a blessing to others.Even among the heathen there are those who have cherished the spirit of kindness,they worship God ignorantly and have never had the light brought to them but they will not perish,God only judges us on the Truth we know,but if we chose to close our eyes to further Truth we make a fatal mistake. Jesus Love is not restricted,He identifies Himself with every child of humanity.
Jesus elaborates on this point a bit more in Revelation 22:11 “He that is unjust let him be unjust still,he that is filthy let him be filthy still, :he that is righteous let him be righteous still,he that is holy let him be holy still.”
What does ‘unjust’ mean? In my dictionary ‘just’ means to be ‘legally correct’ .’Unjust means to be ‘legally correct but unfair’….or a religious person who does not keep the spirit of the law. ‘Many will say to me in that day.Lord,Lord,I have prophecied in Your Name, I have cast our devils, and done many wonderful works.He will say depart from Me ye workers of iniquity,I never knew you!” Matthew 7:22
What does ‘filthy’ mean? Vile, obscene,evil, outright sinners who ignore their Saviour.
What does ‘righteous’ mean ? Many people who are ignorant of His Written Law have heard His Voice speaking to them in nature and have done the things the Law required.Their works are evidence that the Holy Spirit has touched their lives,and He recognises them as children of God. The unjust will be shocked to find them in Heaven and themselves left out.
What does ‘Holy’ mean? Those who do righteous acts from the right motive not to be seen of men, and who are covered by His Blood ,and who make the Word of God their study and their standard for all they do.They would rather die than deny Christ or commit sin.
Therefore a Muslim who is ‘righteous’ or ‘Holy’ will be in Heaven.
God will condemn them to hell unless they turn their hearts and minds directly to His commandments from the beginning. He loves the sinner if you want to call them that but hates the sin as all should know and He is the only belief there is so, because they call themselves Muslims as a Baptist says I am a Baptist does not make Him condemn but if you live a life in those religions placing HIM the main belief then no you will not be sentenced to hell. Amen?? I am Baptist but He is my main belief and not the way we worship…He is my center of attention and worship….God Bless,
Unless they have accepted Jesus as their savior they are going to hell, just like everyone else that doesn’t accept the free gift of life from God.
No God doesn’t condemn people to hell because of a religion all have sinned and come short the glory of God Salvation is not about religion it is accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior the only sin that is not forgiving is unbelief those who ask for Jesus forgiveness Muslim or otherwise will be forgiving those who don’t believe will not enter into the kingdom of heaven no matter what the religion it is strictly by salvation alone that we enter into heaven. Read Romans 8 we are predestined.
Yes, because they don’t believe in God the Father God the Son God the Holy Spirit. There is no other name Jesus is the way!
All who do not believe that Jesus is the Son of God will go to hell. The Bible says “no one comes to the Father accept through Jesus the Son.” God doesn’t look at the denomination we belong to but at our hearts. All who acknowledge their sin and the need of a Savior will enter eternity!
Is it right for us to try and decide what God will do. The Lord Jesus Christ is the only way to God the Father. It does not matter who you are or what you call yourself, If you haven’t given your life to Him, you don’t have the promise of eternal life.
Never confuse the political description “people of faith” with the people who are the children of GOD by faith. All of the descendants of Adam have the capacity to exhibit a life of faith but only the faith that results from hearing the Word of GOD can save a person from Hell. Creation, nature, religion, lineage, agnosticism and evolution are examples of people using faith and Satan trying his best to fill the void in people and to circumvent the plan of salvation that GOD set forth before the worlds were framed. Remember, those who have not believed in Jesus Christ as Savior will not “be” condemned to hell, they are “condemned already” because they have not believed on the name of the only begotten son of GOD. We need to get the gospel to the Muslim world!
