Sorry for the late reply brother Robert

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?
in response to reader comment: The Creator's will

Hi there Robert,

Thanks for the reply. I have read the link that you have mentioned. I personally dont know the writer but there were things I wasnt able to comprehend quite clearly. Letting you know the issues so that you might let me know the answers. Before I proceed Robert, I would like to say that I read everything from an open mind - 'agreeing what it says'. Now, everyone, Muslims, Christians, jews, Buddhists, Hindus - whoever believes in Heaven and Hell - all want to go to Heaven. Eve those who do not believe in Heaven and Hell, upon decription of these two, they will choose Heaven. Right Robert?

Lets start with this verse - "For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in him should have eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. "(John 6:40).

According to this verse, Mr X, sees the Son and believes in him , will have an eterneal life and will be raised at the last day. This verse doesnt mention if this eternal life will be in Heaven or Hell.

But if you look at this verse - "For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven." (Matthew 5:20)

This verse is, in fact, talking about everyone's desire... Heaven and how to go there. What will I do with an eternal life but not in Heaven?

Now brother Robert, the closest answer to John 6:40 is this one - "Not every one who says to me, "Lord, Lord," shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven." (Matthew 7:21). According to this verse, those will enter into the Heaven, who follows the Will of 'The Creator'. Right? But Matthew no where in his book saying any such will that matches John 6:40. - or even something close. [Correct me if I am wrong...... after all I am a simple human being -- still learning..... he he]

Robert, if you think any part of my writing did hurt you eeven a slight bit, plese do forgive me because that would be my least intention on earth. Because if I hurt you even by my writing, I am not following Al-Quraan. Feel free to let me know your opinion.

May 'The Creator' help us to be of the righteous ones.

Muhammad
