Religious People To Heaven
As a Christian in America, I know many people of various non-christian religions. They are good people who follow a different path to salvation. Are these good people all wrong and doomed? Is there room in Christianity to believe others will be saved?

There are christian people,worldly christian people even non-christian people that are good-doers,these are self righteous, Isa 64 v 6.
These diff paths to salvation Are Man-made such as,easy believism,once saved always saved, no works salvation,say the sinners prayer & the such like & has NO scriptural basis.
All roads may lead to your Capitol City But,there's only One Way up.
These people need to recieve God's One & Only Salvation Plan which is according to Acts v's 37-41 which Fulfills Matt 28 v's 19-20. Gal 1 v's 8-9. Straight is the gate & narrow Is His Way.
God Is Strict.

The Bible tells us the only way to get to God is through His son Jesus Christ. We are instructed to pray to God the Father in Jesus Name. John 16:23 In that day ye shall ask me nothing,Verily verily I say unto you,Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name,he shall give you. Luke 11:2 And he said unto them,when ye pray,say.Our Father who art in Heaven,in other words the Lords prayer is the pattern we as Christians are given to pray. No other so called Gods or religions can touch God for under the New Covenant this is how to reach God,through his son who died on the cross for our sins. Goodness isn't Godiliness,it can take you straight to hell. 1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God,and one mediator between God and men,the man Christ Jesus.

salvation thru jesus christ is Gods gift to the world.john 3-16 for God so loved the world that he GAVE his only begotten son,that who so ever would believe shall not perish.The plan is Gods gift,the choice to believe is yours.

Religion will take you to hell quicker than anything I know of. Hell is full of religious people.
Some are not elected to go to heaven and others elected to go to hell. Jesus died for all!!! The bible says "Whosoever will" We make the choice, The Holy Spirit draws us we accept the invitation or reject it. God is not willing that any should parish.

I'm sorry frank but *true* Christians aren't considered as believing this way, and if you believe this way, you will have a bunch of Christians saying that you are not a real Christian. It would be nice if we would be as loving and accepting as Jesus wanted us to be, but we aren't that way sometimes.

People can only be save if God Chose them to be save. Salvation is strictly God's work. We cannot save ourselves by Good works, going to church, acceptance, baptism. Those who are save by grace of Election thir sins was paid by Jesus since the founation of the world. Rev 13:8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

Or you can open your mind a bit.
The correct understanding of John 14:6 is that Jesus is the gatekeeper to Heaven. Nobody gets to the Father, that is Heaven, except by being let in by Jesus. Jesus may let them in for whatever reasons He chooses. He's not required to let in only those who believe in Him. Biblical fact: belief in Jesus is the sure way, but not the only way. Jesus said you can avoid Hell by doing good to others out of love. This is the meaning of the Parable of Sheep And Goats. In this parable, there is no mention of faith: its pure works based on love. God accepts good works toward others as if they were good works done to Him in love. He counts your love for others as righteousness (Matthew 25:46)

Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation. Those who do not submit to Christ as their Saviour are doomed to hell. Acts 4:12 "Neither is there salvation in any other (name): for there is none other name given among men whereby we must be saved" (Jesus Christ). John 14:6 "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me."

Only GOD knows who is saved and who is not. Since only GOD knows the heart.
But Romans chapter 1,2 speak of those who do not know all but still follow GOD in their heart.
Since we can be only saved through JESUS it is my thought that JESUS can extend salvation through His blood in a way not totally explained in scripture. I will leave that to him since I do not know everything.

The bible tells us Jesus is the ONLY Way, the ONLY truth and NO ONE goes to the Father but through Him.
They must receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior, repent from their false religions and live their lives unto the Lord Jesus, Worshipping Him, Loving Him with all of their Heart and Soul, and doing what the Bible says to do. Forgive their enemies, turn the other cheek, Love the Lord Jesus, and do God's will for their lives.
What do you mean by OTHERS will be saved? Only those who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ will be saved.

scripture tells us that there is no light within men,that there is only darkness,that men love the dark,and hate the light,so there are no good people in this world only sinners.Jesus came as the light of the world,to give men the inward light they lack,when they accept him,and live their lives in obidience to him.Again there is only one path,one way to heaven,and that is thru jesus.

Yep, all people are sinners and those who don't show open sin are likely hiding major sins.
So once a sinner, you need salvation through Jesus.

" Are these good people all wrong and doomed?"
Mar 10:18-"[there is] none good but one, [that is], God:"
"Is there room in Christianity to believe others will be saved? Jesus is the 'only' way and those that are His will come to Him.
Act 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."
Yet "Thou Lord, [art] good, and ready to forgive, and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee.
And He commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is He [Jesus] which was ordained of God [to be] the Judge of quick and dead." Psa 86:5>Act 10:42

Deuteronomy 10:17-19: "For the LORD your God is God of gods, and Lord of lords, a great God, a mighty, and a terrible, which regardeth not persons, nor taketh reward: He doth execute the judgment of the fatherless and widow, and loveth the stranger, in giving him food and raiment. Love ye therefore the stranger: for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt."
I believe the Lord will receive many strangers unto himself that know His ways, the ways of mercy and justice.

scripture specifically tells us that no one is good,NO ONE. that jesus is the only way to heaven,that you must accept him. IAM THE WAY,THE TRUTH,THE LIFE,NO ONE COMES TO THE FATHER BUT BY ME.seems plain to me.

So, you're saying these people are "good people"? You are a judge of other people's hearts, then, if you really know that God knows they are good. And so, if you are such a reliable judge of people's character, you should be able to evaluate who to marry so you don't end up breaking up and fighting, etc. Because good people obey God's word, which includes, "Do all things without complaining and disputing," (Philippians 2:14) > this would include not blaspheming God by cursing and complaining against His blessing of rain, among other things.

The Bible is clear - the ONLY way to Heaven and salvation is through Jesus Christ. If people are good, but do NOT have Jesus Christ as Lord of their lives, they are NOT going to Heaven. God does NOT make exceptions. You can NOT earn your way to Heaven with good works. To God, our works are as filthy rages (used mentral pads that women wear during their periods).

Non-christian relig-orgs Are Man-made. The light that came for man to devise such False relig-orgs is 2nd. Cori.11 v's 14-15 & Is the same when the man constantine when he embraced a type of christianity devised r-catholocism (Man-made the first trin-church) along with r-catholocism's off-spring trin-churches. No one found in scriptures that was baptized in the titles, Father-Son & Holy Spirit.
Only One Name given where by we must be saved & that Is Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ Is The Door, Mark 16 v 16, Acts 2 v's 37-41 which Fulfills Matt 28 v's 19-20. When your baptized In The Name Jesus Christ, then you Are being baptized In The name of The Father-Son & Holy Ghost.

You either believe Jesus is a liar or not. If He is not a liar, then HE is the only way to salvation. Ask those you know in those other religions who died on the cross for them!!!!
