I saw a topic about “going to heaven” posted by a Christian member. I wouldn’t make my comments there since that obviously would be sort of a hijack. So I’ll post my comments and questions here.
As far as most of my personal conversations and other contacts with non-family/non friend Christians go, I’m even doomed already for not being a Christian.
As an example of that I’m told twice the last ten days that I go to hell because I don’t believe “Jesus is God” and “Jesus Saves” and Al Qur’an is an invention (one said of Satan, which was not all to original).
Of course -seen the rather obsessed character of their unwanted proselytizing - I told them also very directly that no man can be God and that Jesus was a human and a prophet.
The first happy encounter was on a train, the second one was when we came out of a hotel. It was a sort of mini-invasion of Christian proselytizers I guess.
One of them said that my late mother was in hell too.
Lucky for him that he said that in English, a language that those who were with me don’t understand that well to get a picture of what he just said. And also lucky for him that my European half immediately took control over my Arab half. Which is more then useful at such moments.
Now, since according to those Christians I go to hell anyway (to meet my mother there, and since I go for being Muslim, my father must also be there already. It thus will be the Happy Family Reunion in The Fire) I’ll ask some questions here I forgot to ask those two:
- Does this mean that I can have some backflash and imagine myself that I live during the crusades period(s)? (I would just love to be there, but that has a professional background)
- Does it also mean that according to the dooming-Christians I can sin at will since I’m doomed anyway?
