in response to reader comment: To PCMadness : Answers_2 : God don't force humans why should I ?

"It is a fact that human beings have tendency to believe in God. They feel God it doesn't matter what religion they have. This is because there is only one God. When people think about God they are connected to the same source."

So it doesn't matter what relgion you are then does it?

You then seemed to contradict this staement with the following.

"I am not the judge. It is the responsibility of Creator what to do with those who didn't follow the right path. How can Quran say that all religious people will enter to heaven? if I am not one of the followers of Quran why should I be given free excess to heaven? it is a simple logic. I agree that there is only one God. The perception the same God from one religion to other is different. The problem starts from this issue."

So you are saying quite clearly here. If you don't follow the Quran you should not be given free access to heaven. Couldn't the Quran just say if you believed in God regardless of religion you will have access to heaven???

It doesn't, which is why muslims view ALL non-muslims as non-believers and infidel.

As far as your other comments

"Let me explain what I meant by "No one has power to decide where, when and how to die.This is the decision of God. Who can judge God?"

So God decides the fate of suicide bombers, or other people who commit suicide. That makes no sense!!!

"All we have freedom to choose. We won't to choose to die if not mentally ill. "

Many people every day choose to die....

"All we like to survive and live longer. But this doesn't mean that we won't die because of other's actions. Only some lucky people dies from natural aging."

I would say most poeple die from old age, actually.

"God is not the one who is going to save lives of many innocents. All we are responsible from the actions of bad people. We have to stop them. Babies are not dying from simple disease any more. If a baby dies from hunger in Africa should we blame God ? Don't forget God doesn't exist for us."

Well actually babies do die from simple diseases, like TB. If a baby dies from hunger in africa it's mainly because the rains never came. Wouldn't God control the weather?? All you've really done here is reinforce my comment. Why would a just God allow innocent people to die due to events that we as humans cannot control???

"Some people easily escapes from natural disasters. Newspaper full of survivors stories. That's why I believe my life is in the hands of Allah. I want to live longer not to repeat the same mistakes and change myself as much as possible. This can happen if Allah gives that opportunity. If I die today I will have no time to learn not to do many things."

And some people die. Survivors are ultimately lucky people in the right place at the right time.....

Bottom line is it is still your belief. But that doesn't make any non-muslim wrong.

Submitting....
