Islam & Chritianity

Hell – Are you destined to it?

Hell – Are you destined to it?

The Bible says NO! Hell is a place that many are terrified to even think of.  Is it real?  Does it exist?  If it does, why does God allow it?  Will people go there based on their works or beliefs?  These questions are all answered by the holy books of Christianity and Islam. The Bible and Qur’an both acknowledge the existence of hell, its purpose, and how one can escape from entering its fiery grasp.  Both, however, are very different from each other.  If that doesn’t scare you, it should!  Because they both cannot be right and you had better be sure you know which one to believe in!

According to the Qur’an, every guilty man will go to hell – every guilty man. Muslim, Christian, Buddhist, Hindu.  Wait, even Muslims?  Yes.  If you are guilty of shortcoming or sin before Allah, then you, too, are destined to hell and dwelling there forever.  Just because you claim to follow Allah and his prophet, simply calling yourself a Muslim does not guarantee you escape from hell.  What does Allah require?  Praying during five specified times each and every single day of your life.  My Muslim friend, have you done this?  Have you faithfully prayed five times a day every single day of your existence?  If not, you are in danger of hell because you are guilty according to the Qur’an.  Muslim women, have you made sure to make up prayers when you could not pray due to your monthly cycle?  If not, you are in danger of hell.  And this is only one requirement of the five pillars required of every Muslim.  The Qur’an does not say if you claim Islam you will be guaranteed protection from the fires of hell.  It says anyone who is guilty before Allah will go there. 

The danger for you, regarding this, is that those who enter hell NEVER leave.  Even Muslims who go there will never leave according to the Qur’an.  Sura 11:98 says, “He will go before his people on the Day of Judgment, and lead them into the Fire (as cattle are led to water): But woeful indeed will be the place to which they are led!”  He will lead his people into the fire.  Will they ever come out?  No.  Sura 20:74 states, “Whoever comes to his Lord (being) guilty, for him is surely hell; he shall not die therein, nor shall he live.”

You, my Muslim friend, are in danger of this because you are guilty of sin before God.  No one can be perfect.  By this realization, even the prophet of the Arabs, Muhammad himself, was not guaranteed to enter paradise.  He was not perfect therefore he also was in danger of hell.  Remember the Qur’an merely says ‘guilty’ not kafir or infidel.  Even if you are a Muslim, if you are guilty of the smallest infraction, you are destined to hell.  And if you go there, you will never get out.

Now that we have established what happens to all who are guilty according to the Qur’an, let us examine what happens to all who are guilty according to the Bible.  Because only one of these can be correct – the Qur’an or the Bible.

The Bible declares that the punishment for sin is death and hell.  All who stand guilty because of sin before a Holy and Just God are going to hell.  Period.  But there is a difference.  There is a guarantee of completely by-passing hell to dwell in heaven and a promise of eternal resurrection for those who desire it.  According to the Bible, Jesus Christ, the Messiah of God, is the only perfect one to walk the face of the earth who willingly took the punishment for our sin, a punishment we rightly deserve.  And it is by placing faith in the work that He did on our behalf that our sins can be forgiven.  The Bible declares in John 3:16-18, For God so loved the world, that he gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved. He that believeth on Him 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.”

When we believe in Jesus Christ and believe on the work He has done on our behalf, we immediately become children of God and are part of His family.  Our sins are forgiven and we are made righteous before Him.  Our standing before God will mean heaven for eternity.  Man, woman, boy, girl, former Muslim, Atheist, or Hindu.  No matter who you are or what you used to believe, if you come to Jesus Christ and trust Him and rely on His work for your salvation, you are not only guaranteed to escape hell, but you are guaranteed eternity in heaven!  “And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.  He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God” I John 5:11-13.  Jesus Himself said, “And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.” in John 10:28.  My friend, who will you follow?  A prophet who did not know if he was destined to hell or heaven?  Or the One who not only guarantees eternal life but makes it possible for you to obtain?

Prt 3, are you aware of the significance & necessity of animal blood sacrifices, particularly lambs, for the forgiveness of sins, in the Torah & Old Testament? Which pointed to Jesus.

Do you know of Old Testament prophesies about Jesus (Isaiah 53, to name one).

Or that there are many hidden msgs within the Hebrew Scriptures & alphabet, that foretell of God coming down and dying for humanity?

God loves you, I know I've said some offensive (but true) things in these 3 msgs, but it's for your good, forgive me. I encourage you to start watching David Woods, on Acts17Apologetics, on YouTube, or their show: Jesus or Muhammad - watch from their channels to see what they really say, as they debunk Islam & it's claims against Christianity.

God loves you, His Word left Heaven & became flesh to die for your sins, because you cannot save yourself, & He rose from the dead gloriously. Don't despise His free gift.

Prt 2, You mean to say: "We believe in the Bible, just not all of the CORE Christian beliefs found in it". Would you accept the converse statement: "We believe in the Quran & Hadith, just not that Muslims are supposed to believe in the 5 Pillars of Islam, or that Muhammad was the Seal of Prophets"?

Historically, we know that the Bible has been preserved since the beginning, and that means before Muhammad. People before Muhammad had the same Bible we have today. On the other hand however, according to history & Islamic sources & authorities, the Quran has been changed multiple times (& have multiple Qurans today).

And as I mentioned before, the Quran does not support your claim that the Bible has been changed. So why do you say so? Because an illiterate demoniac (which can be inferred from Islamic sources) contradicted the Bible & affirmed it as authoritative at the same time, 600 yrs after Jesus, Christianity, & the Gospel.

Dear Nick, Christianity is not supposed to be a religion, but a renewed relationship with God, that changes us from the inside out. And it is the Truth, you can test it all you want.

Have you ever considered that your beliefs are wrong? :)

Take a look at:
Cold Case Christianity
Cold Case For The Resurrection
The Case For Christ

Just a few resources, by former atheists & investigative researchers.

I got more if you'd like.

Man sinned, was disconnected from God, messed up the world, & headed for hell (eternal separation from a totally Holy God). Jesus, the Word of God came down from Heaven, became flesh, showed us how to live, suffered & died to forgive us, rose from the dead to prove who He was, ascended BACK to Heaven, & then sent His Holy Spirit to change & empower us. That's the Gospel. God loved you that much. Accept who Jesus is & what He did 4U.

2 of 2 - PS, this IS informational. And on a sight exclusively about Islam & Christianity, it's VERY appropriate to have discussion. And Muslims by the way are more than willing to comment on blogs and websites, attempting to (unsuccessfully) disprove Christianity, & make converts... however, I find that much of the time this is usually more hateful than anything. I recently watched about 20 minutes of a small portion of comments regarding the death of a recent Muslim apostate, turned Christian apologist, which were full of Muslims gloating (literally) over his death, and hoping that his friend and fellow apologist would soon suffer the same fate, as well as worse for his wife and children - 20 minutes... a small portion of such comments from Muslims (whom we are called to love regardless). To be fair, his friend pointed out that some Muslims shared sympathy, and that they liked the one who had passed on, but they were the minority.

1 of 2. Dear Lydia, both are true. Your eternity is important, as well as teachings & life values now. But, what determines the legitimacy of both is truth, not feelings. Truth is more important than anything, not just what you want to believe on the surface, without searching out the truth.

And your comment isn't? What are you doing online? If you TRULY cared about how people's lives are affected here on this Earth now by what they believe, & whether they would go to Hell or Heaven, & what that means, then truth would be your greatest search, & once you found it, you would do everything to defend it, & lead people to it, & bring them out of being lost... as you yourself are. You too, whatever you believe, believe in absolutes.

You've sinned, are hell bound, but Jesus took your punishment on Himself so you can be reconnected with God relationally & live forever - & yes, have His morals on Earth.

Hello Anon, 1. Jesus IS God according to the Bible, & your final judge. 2. Isn't the Shahada giving your Allah a partner? 3. Your Allah declares that he will put the sins of some Muslims on Jews and Christians, who will then be punished on their behalf. 4. Islamic Martyrs are said to be able to intercede for 70 members of their family (I believe). 5. John 3:16 - Is from God, out of Jesus' mouth. A. it just says He "gave", B. Jesus talked about His coming death & resurrection multiple times. 6. The Quran NEVER says that the Bible has been corrupted, in fact it says it can't be corrupted, & that it was inspired, preserved, & is authoritative, even to Muslims. 7. Wrong again, in Islam you can only be as high as a slave to Allah relationally. Furthermore, the Quran is quite clear on all the people Allah DOES NOT love (including all none-believers). If you really knew Islam, you'd know Allah is not merciful or loving, especially not compared to God.

Making rivals and partners to God is a major sin in Islam and against the ten commandments, you claim doing this sin is the basis of salvation. No soul can bear the sins of another. Every soul must answer for himself including Jesus.

John 3:16 is not from God or Jesus because it talks of Jesus being dead already. So if you claim only Bible or Quran can be true, then that makes Quran true. Muslims however believe that the Bible is also true, just that some things were added later to corrupt Jesus true teachings which were more similar to Islam. We're all God's children. Satan also promised eve everlasting life in the Garden of Eden. Also before trying to scare people of hell also remember the mercy and love of our Creator Allah Almighty, who sent both Jesus and Mohammad with the same mission to guide humanity. Peace.

Has it never occurred to you all that BOTH religions could be wrong ??????

Your religion should not be based on what rewards you will receive upon death. It should be about whether or not you believe in that religion's teachings and values in life. Furthermore, I find it interesting that so many Christians come on this site to peddle their religion. Is this really what you chose to do online? This site is for informational purposes. Your attempt at conversion is, well, pathetic and unappreciated. That's coming from someone who isn't a Muslim.
