in that same vein (curiosity!) the thought strikes me that we are dealing with sort of a vampire creature sucking on the energies of others without being able to convert it into something mutually beneficial.

Muslims Encountering YAHUSHUA In Unusual Dreams

I can post links to sites where Christians priests, teachers, scientists, intellects revert to Islam upon discovering and really researching it (after all they are the sort who do not just revert or accept a religion without rigorous researching.. but i think it will just become like a table-tennis game...

And can you link us to a post were Christian are now following the Muslim faith, because Allah appeared to them in a dream? And are Christians all over the earth by the thousands giving their life to Allah because he is appearing in their dreams? I guess that fact went right over your head. My post is pointing out, that it is Jesus Christ Himself that is appearing to these people. This is not about what some believe because of personal study, this is about a real God, who actually is appearing to thousands around the world.

In the Bible Hosea 4:6 states: My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

So without knowing God people will suffer.

Before God made all creation he knew all of us and who is going to have their name in the book of life is predestined Nothing happens in this world by coincidence although we have the freedom of choice God has given us The Lord knows what will happen in our life before it happens he knows what test we will fail what trials we will endure. In the end of days the Bible states all nations will know him. Don't doubt God we all have the ability to receive messages in dreams some just choose not to listen.

Well If my "find loopholes in the bible" lessons of sunday school were of use, death itself absolves us from our sins and thus no one goes to hell.

I guess then you for consistencies sake will say a person who converts to Christianity via study is not a valid conversion. Right?

If you ask me anyone that believes in God will go to heaven regardless of religion. I even believe atheists will go to heaven. They are God's people too. No reason to send them to hell for there right to believe what they want. The only type of person that would go to hell is a "hitler" type person who has commited mass crimes against God's people.

So to answer your question, I truly believe anyone goes to heaven regardless of there religious beliefs. This, as stated above, include atheists or people that have never had the chance to hear God's word.
