No, because they...
Isaiah 64:6-7 are unclean, their righteousness is as (menstrual) rags. None calleth upon thy name.
Matthew 7:18 are (always) in the flesh, dwelleth no good thing.
Romans 3:20-22 by the deeds of the law, shall no flesh be justified.
Romans 6:20-21 are servants of sin, free from righteousness. The end is death.
Romans 10:3 Being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own , have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
John 10:7, 9 do not enter in the door. Jesus said "I am the door".
p.s. Ephesians 2:8-9 By grace you are saved through faith, not of yourselves, not of works it is a gift of God.

Your pastor is 100% correct. The Bible says in John 14 Verse 6: Jesus said, "I am the way the truth and the life; NOONE comes to the Father, except through Me alone". Then in 1 John 5 Verse 12 & 13: He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, in order that you may know that you have eternal life."

"I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father but by Me."-Jesus. By the way the end time persecution will be measured by knowing and acknowledging this truth which is immutable. God has provided a way of escape through Jesus and it is offered to everyone. If they reject His offer there is really nothing He can do about it other than be grieved for them as He continues to draw them by His Holy Spirit.

Hindus or Muslims who do not accept Jesus are going to hell no matter how "righteous" or good they try to be. They accepted a false religion and did not seek the truth.

Even if a human missionary hasn't gone to a country yet to tell the Good News...the Holy Spirit (has gone/is going) to (minister to/convict of sin).Right? Not one person in eternity will be able to say'I never had a chance'.linda3957

Your pastor is right. The word of God is very clear about this. "No man will enter the kingdom of God except through HIM(JESUS)
Theoretical christians, hindus, moslems, etc will have to verbalise the acceptance of Jesus. A man/woman has to be born again. Read the book of Mathew.
---Caroline_Lee on 10/22/05|
Only if a Hindu or Muslum is righteous by nature, and they never heard the gospel, then they will enter heaven; but if a Hindu or Muslum has heard the gospel, but rejected it, then Christ will reject them in front of the Father and they will not enter heaven.

There is only one way to heaven and that is by believing that Jesus is the Son of God; Muslims emphatically deny this....they will admit He is a prophet but nothing more. Don't believe the current pantheism and watered down theology re the true Christian faith. Indeed Jesus is the only way, the only truth and the only life and we cannot really know Him unless we are born again into a personal relationship with Him.
---Elsie on 10/22/05|
Your pastor is right

The Bible siad that Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. He is not a way but THE way, the only way to salvation. So, unless the Muslums or the Hindus dedicate their lives to Christ, that time they will go to heaven.

There are far too many misconceptions about Islam. People prefer to believe the media or take other peoples "opinions" rather than learn for themselves the facts. Tis so sad that so many people do NOT take the time to study the bi-laws of any religion. This I would recommend to all, as so few people even know the bi-laws of their own doctrine.
---Pamelia on 10/19/05|
The Bible is very plain when it talks about salvaction a couple of verses i use alot are out of romans chapter 10 verse 9 and also verse 13 please read this also go to ephesians2:9 so many believe you have to do things to get into heaven its plain just accept JESUS CHRIST
---Darrell on 10/19/05|
Muslims don't believe that Jesus is God and son of God. They believe that he was just a good teacher/prophet. Only prophet Muhamaad was the prefect one because he got the revelation from Allah. UNLESS, they believe in Jesus, accept HIM as their Lord and Savior and live for HIM ONLY, they won't be with HIM when they die. Remember, Jesus Christ died for our sins and rose again to prepare a place for whoever believes in HIM. Muhamaad died and still in the grave.
---Anneke on 10/19/05|
yep hindus and muslims need to be saved, not thru allah or muhammad but Jesus Christ God's only son, and the way to heaven and eternal life! read your bible darling!
---angie on 10/19/05|
You should read the bible.
Your pastor does.
It tells of who can enter the gates-not who can not.
---chuck on 10/19/05|
your pastor is absolutely correct. What about hindus or muslims? They will spend eternity in hell unless they are saved.
---shira_5965 on 10/19/05|
first, i want correct something here , God said, not your pastor.your pastor said only what God said and it is the truth.every word of God is powewrful, living and life so it is only those beleive that Jesus is God ,s son will enter heaven.please check your bible John 1-12.unblief is a sin against God no matter what name they called themselves.God bless you.
---kingsley on 10/19/05|
Your pastor is correct. Acts 4:12, "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." John 3:15-18, "That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life."
---Bruce5656 on 10/19/05|
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."
---Bruce5656 on 10/19/05|
Matthew 7:13-15, "Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves."
---Bruce5656 on 10/19/05|
Your Pastor is right. Jesus Christ is the ONLY door.
