I hope you don't agree with this quotation
I mark Religious Studies exam papers for extra money. The age group is 15-16 (religious education in school is no doubt a foreign concept to you Yanks).
There is a series of questions on Islamic views on life after death. One of these questions poses the statement:
'A loving God would not send people to hell'. Do you agree?
A candidate gave this answer:
No, I do not agree. Allah is all-merciful. If he chooses to forgive you, you are forgiven, but if he chooses not to forgive you, then you burn in hell.
Does that sound familiar?
