Andre:

Read again please, 2:62, 3:113 to 115 & 5:48 from Quran: This is the mind-set of Muslims

Any good person from any faith is bound for salvation, nirvana or Heaven. We, Muslims are not supposed to argue with Good Christians for matters of faith...but just share with you what the Quran says: You make up your mind.

1) Since the core message in all the scriptures is to worship One and Only One God, belief in the Day of Judgment and to live a Righteous way of life. God in His message gives hope to all people by saying, “Those who believe (in the Quran), those who follow the Jewish Scriptures, the Christians (who follow the teachings of the Gospels) and the Sabians (followers of John the Baptist or Zoroastrians), any (anyone living in any part of the world) who believe in God, the Last Day and work righteousness, shall have their reward from their Lord, on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.” 2:62, 5:69, 2:112 (repeated numerous times all over the Quran).

2) “Not all are alike from among the People of the Book (Jews, Christians and Muslims) thereare those who stand for the right, they rehearse the signs of God all night long and theySubmit/surrender in adoration. They believe in God and the Last Day. They enjoin what is rightand forbid what is wrong. They hasten with emulation in all good works. They are in the ranks ofthe righteous. Of the good that they do, nothing will be rejected for God knows best those that do
right.” 3:113,114 & 115.

3) Quran RECOGNISES DIVERSITY & PLURALISM

To you WE have given the scriptures, just as WE have given the scriptures to people before you (Jews, Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, etc). We have protected your scriptures (Quran) in its entirety. So judge among people from what knowledge has come to you (from Quran) and do not be carried over by your vain desires (that Muslims are the only righteous and chosen people to lead). To each among you (referring to diverse groups – not excluding anybody) We have prescribed the Law (teachings of the indigenous, native people and Buddhist scholars, Gitas, Vedas, Torah, Gospels and The Quran) and an Open Way (given a conscience with reference to the spiritualists people). If God had willed, all humanity would have been of one single community (this means diversity is part of God’s creation). God’s plan is to test you in what each one has received (in the form of Holy Scriptures or Conscience). So strive, as in a race in all virtues. The goal of all the people is to God. God (alone) will tell you the truth in matters of which you dispute.” 5:48

(This means do not fight over religious matters, establish peace and conduct dialogues with wisdom and beautiful conduct to understand each other so all can live in peace)
