Let me quote the same verse

98:6 Those who reject (Truth), among the People of the Book and among the Polytheists, will be in Hell-Fire, to dwell therein (for aye). They are the worst of creatures.

Its those who reject truth i.e reject the creator, the one who created him/her, sustains him/her.

2:62 VERILY, those who have attained to faith [in this divine writ], as well as those who follow the Jewish faith, and the christians, and the Sabians Asad(2,49)-all who believe in God and the Last Day and do righteous deeds-shall have their reward with their Sustainer; and no fear need they have, and neither shall they grieve.

57:27 And thereupon We caused [other of] Our apostles to follow in their footsteps; and [in the course of time] We caused them to be followed by Jesus, the son of Mary, upon whom We bestowed the Gospel; Asad(57,46) and in the hearts of those who [truly] followed him We engendered compassion and mercy. But as for monastic asceticism Asad(57,47)We did not enjoin it upon them: they invented it themselves out of a desire for God's goodly acceptance. Asad(57,48)But then, they did not [always] observe it as it ought to have been observed: Asad(57,49)and so We granted their recompense unto such of them as had [truly] attained to faith, whereas many of them became iniquitous. Asad(57,50)
