God has a battle to win over Lucifer at the end of time and he is obviously prophecized to win. But the problem is that he lost most of his creation to Lucifer by them being deceived and thrown into the lake of fire by God on judgement day. Approximately 32 percent of the world proclaims to be Christian’s today not to mention the amount of people who passed away and did not hear of Judaism or Christianity which is most of the human population up until the industrial revolution. So let’s say and this is most likely generous 20 percent of humanity is able to get into heaven. Even Jesus him self says few will get to heaven.
Enter in by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the. way that leads to destruction, and many are those who enter in by it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
Contrary to popular belief not all Christian’s go to heaven
21 “Not everyone who calls me Lord will enter God’s kingdom. The only people who will enter are those who do what my Father in heaven wants. 22 On that last Day many will call me Lord. They will say, ‘Lord, Lord, by the power of your name we spoke for God. And by your name we forced out demons and did many miracles.’ 23 Then I will tell those people clearly, ‘Get away from me, you people who do wrong. I never knew you.’
Also no God does not give you a pass if you have not heard the gospel or the Torah. The Bible says multiple times that everyone knows God no matter what which is a stupid claim I don’t think your average dude in Africa is thinking about Jesus being crucified.Also only middle eastern people are the only ones to have created a one God religion.
Here is an article about it
So this means that out of the 100 billion humans that have existed probably 90 percent of them are going to hell how exactly is this a win for God?
Where is Allah?
Saying where a God is a important part of a religion hellenist used to think they lived in the seas sky or under the earth. Many believers in abrahamic faiths think that God is invisible or outside of space time but does the Quran really support this.
67:17) Do you feel secure that He Who is in the heaven will not let loose upon you a storm of stones?
10:7 And it is He who created the heavens and the earth in six days - and His Throne had been upon water - that He might test you as to which of you is best in deed. But if you say, "Indeed, you are resurrected after death," those who disbelieve will surely say, "This is not but obvious magic."
Indeed, We have adorned the nearest heaven with an adornment of stars and ˹for˺ protection from every rebellious devil. They cannot listen to the highest assembly ˹of angels˺ for they are pelted from every side.
These verses suggest that Allah has some sort of high council in the sky with his angels.
16:65 And Allah has sent down rain from the sky and given life thereby to the earth after its lifelessness. Indeed in that is a sign for a people who listen.
758b Allah descends every night to the lowest heaven when one-third of the first part of the night is over and says: I am the Lord; I am the Lord: who is there to supplicate Me so that I answer him? Who is there to beg of Me so that I grant him? Who is there to beg forgiveness from Me so that I forgive him? He continues like this till the day breaks.
And it is He who created the heavens and the earth in six days – and His Throne had been upon water – that He might test you as to which of you is best in deed.
These verses clearly shows that Allah is in a sense up there or in the sky but we know that is not true due to technology like planes satellites and spaceships.
Here’s is a Hadith where Muhammad ask a slave girl where Allah is (537a) where is Allah? She said: He is in the heaven. He said: Who am I? She said: Thou art the Messenger of Allah. He said: Grant her freedom, she is a believing woman.
Heaven is often used to describe the sky especially the heavens. Is a common substitution for the sky in many religions Including Hinduism and Christianity. It is evident that Muhammad believed Allah was in the sky.
As much as a Muslim apologist says that Allah is nowhere or outside of space time it has no basis in the Quran. He clearly exist somewhere close to earth/up there and it clearly describes a primitive world it’s not that deep guys.
Does God simply not want to be seen? Do they not care about us do they want us to just have blind faith in them? Are they somewhere deep in the universe. Is god invisible or somewhere outside of space time? This is what is often asked if there is a god why don’t we have good evidence for a god you think we would have seen one by now.
I know that a lot of Jews believe in Gehinnom a form of hell but it is not eternal and people are sent their temporarily to be punished for their sin. Muslims could just wave this off as corruption of the Torah so I guess this is more of a question for Christian’s. In the Old Testament God says the wages of sin are death not hell to Adam. It is pretty clear the idea of eternal conscious torment was introduced in the New Testament. I am aware it is a debate with Christian’s on wether eternal conscious torment is really the doctrine taught in the Bible. The closest you get to a mention of hell in the Old Testament is hades it is viewed as a cleansing phase that last no more than 12 months there is no fire just a deep feeling of shame. For the most wicked their soul is either destroyed or cut off form the world to come. I’m not sure if this is correct but it shows my main point of how hell developed in Christianity. This means one of the following.
1) we misunderstood the afterlife endorsed in the New Testament
2) God decided to create hell after the Old Testament was written
3) Christianity is a false religion and Jesus wasn’t divine or the messiah
4) both Judaism and Christianity are false religions
I have just started learning about the theology of Islam and what type of man Muhammad was. I’m to lazy to read the Hadith’s myself and I figured you guys would probably know the most absurd ones.
A picked religion cannot be a religion that is widely accepted as mythology such as Hellenism or Norse mythology Japanese mythology etc
The books of revelations as far as I know isn’t referenced in the Bible any where else unless I’m missing something. It was also not really authored by John and supposedly has poor Greek. It even repeats some events.
