Among the unbelievers, outside the Church, I have many friends. Those friends do not believe in God, and the logical consequences are that they will not share in the partaking of heaven if they keep this up. You may have had the question, "Will unbelievers, even if they are good people go to hell?" I know the answer as it is explained in the Bible, and many times by church leaders. When I think that the people I love will go to hell, I get mentally upset. I fail at preaching to them to direct onto the right path, and therefore, I say to myself that they, themselves, want to choose this path. I feel this mental pain knowing that my friends will someday suffer for an eternity. Somehow, I think that they do not want to choose the wrong path, but they are blinded by the lust of this earth and their eyes will only be opened if they find themselves in Satan’s when it is to late.
I have non-Christian friends who are great people and have amazing qualities. Will they go to hell because they don't believe in God?
People are saying that in the Koran it says that we should kill infidels. Also, in the Bible it says to kill infidels, examples from (Deuteronomy 13, Deuteronomy 17, and Numbers 31). Is there a difference between this command in the Koran and in the Bible? Please clarify.
