Why does Christianity have to be so Demanding? Why do most Christian have to become a SLAVE to the Bible or Christianity period? It evens puts out a massage that people of others faiths are not welcome into heaven. That sounds like pure selfishness to the fullest extent. Why would God want all of the glory for himself so that I can only then, get my reward in the afterlife? It's the most selfish thing I have ever heard in my life. It should be right for everyone who believed in the greater good for humanity. Why just Christians?

Christianity is demanding because it is a worldview with a system of ethics. It starts with a particular view of the world, then it recognizes ethical obligations in every area of life. So, when you ask why most Christians have become a slave to the Bible (or Christianity), it really comes down to actually believing the claims of Christianity and acting on them. If the God of the Bible exists and Christ entered creation, died and rose, then it makes sense to act according to the prescriptions of the Bible.



Why do only Christians get into heaven?



Well, before I answer that, let me point out that heaven isn't the goal or end of Christianity, the restored earth is. In Christianity, we look forward to the time when Heaven and Earth will be reunited and all things will be made new and put to right.



Mankind rebelled against God and became wicked. God offered humans a pardon and way to be restored and made right, through the death and resurrection of his son. So, only those who take the pardon and submit to Christ as king are made right. So, people of other faiths are still in rebellion. It isn't a matter of God looking down, seeing several different faiths and choosing one to the exclusion of others.

If God killed 2821364 people then that is definitely undeniable proof that God Exist! A non-existent being cannot kill that many people.

Because christianity is exactly as you stated. But far worse. Its god truly hates children, is a genocidal homicidal maniac as he's killed 2,821,364 in his bible alone which includes children and babies still suckling on their mother's nipples. He also kills innocent pregnant mothers which is the first sign of abortion in which christians are so against so that is a double standard super hypocritical contradiction. The killing part is also a super hypocritical contradiction. Hey god kills, but not man? thou shalt not kill? Yeah right. And yet this god orders man to kill for him. This god also praises raped women, he loves and endorses slavery. He hates gays and orders their deaths. If you believe in different gods, he orders your death. If you curse at your parents, he orders your death. If you do not worship the sabbath, he orders your death. Wow and this christ character, he broke that law among many, proving he is not the messiah, so he should have been executed. 9 of the 10 commandments if broken are to be sentenced to death. If you believe in god, you have 0 free will. None. etc etc etc. All of this is tucked nice and neat within the bible. And yet this supposed god of the bible, IF a god (yeah right), would never choose text as a form of communication, the worst form of communication. He would also never choose faith. Faith and text instead of evidence? This so-called god with his superior ego complex would bloat his ego all across the lands without any holding back and present that evidence by as an example talking--to--man. Now the question is, is why did god do all of this as its printed in HIS bible instead of bringing in love, care, kindness, peace and harmony? Nah. He prefers the hate, war, genocide, slavery, and as he's FREELY admitted the baggage of anger, wrath, rage, fury, vengeance, jealousy. Jealousy is nothing but anger as disguised fear. And yet no one, not one person can even prove that this christian god even exists. Wow. Pathetic.

Muslims do not welcome other faiths into their heaven. Hindu"s etc. does not even have a heaven to go to in the Christian sense. Atheists deny heaven and a happy afterlife for those who believe. Why would you deny someone happiness? Your argument is emotional rather than logic. Therefore, your remarks about Christianity, trying to enforce your views on others, make you selfish as well. Your arguments formulated differently may have some validity but your conclusion is a bit irrational.

I'd be happy to accept this debate and have a discussion on the matter if you'd like to lower the criteria or send me an invitation.

Pope Francis recently said that not only Christians will get into heaven, but also atheists and other people of good conscience and faith who are morally good and righteous. The church had previously been stricter on this matter, but we are reforming this idea.

"Those who have done what is good will rise to live, and those who have done what is evil will rise to be condemned."

You could say the exact same thing AND MORE for Islam. Christianity is not selfish, NIR are straw man arguments real arguments.
