Are There Atheists, Muslims and Jews in HeavenAre There Atheists, Muslims and Jews in Heaven?
This provocative question was posed by Joyce Riley, a nurse turned broadcaster. Riley hosts the popular syndicated radio show, The Power Hour. Dr. Nemeh’s response to the above question was so shocking and unique, it drew an immediate response from a New Jersey pastor.

We are sharing in this podcast Joyce Riley’s far-ranging interview with Dr. Issam Nemeh. The connection between God and science is explored fully. So fascinating was the discussion, Joyce did something she rarely does, kept Dr. Nemeh on the air for a second hour. The questions, from both Joyce Riley and listeners from all over the nation, created some great radio.

  1. I was surprised to hear Dr. Nemeh say he uses the King James Bible. He worships in the Catholic Faith. Why does he disregard the additional books (Tobit, Judith, 1 & 2 Maccabees, Wisdom, Ecclesiasticus, and Baruch) that are found in the NAB Catholic Bible? I understand the King James Bible with only 39 books in the old testament are only the Hebrew Scriptures, what is wrong with the additional 6 books that are Greek Scriptures. Ancient historical manuscripts concur that the NAB version of the Bible is more complete.

    • Cindy,
      Dr. Nemeh uses the NAB bible when reading from the books you mentioned. Otherwise, he prefers King James.

  2. Hi Philip. I don’t think I fall into the category of “Fundamental Christian” as referred to by the NJ pastor. In fact I am writing a book that is somewhat autobiographical called “A Pharisee In Recovery”. That being said, Dr. Nemeh’s comments about Atheists and other so called “non-believers” going to Heaven is a position/theology that I find contrary to Paul’s teaching and doctrine (I’m not excluding the Gospels just trying to narrow the scope to get to a point)
    I have poured over Paul’s letters to the Romans, Galatians, Colossians and in particular Hebrews 11(I personally ascribe Paul’s authorship to this letter) and find it untenable to say that faith is not the absolute necessity for anyone to enter into the Kingdom of God. To quote Hebrews 11: 6 “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”
    You may recall the words of Jesus when He said “ unless you become like one of these (little child) you cannot see/enter the Kingdom of God”. He was in fact pointing out the innocent faith a child posses as a prerequisite for getting into The Kingdom of Heaven.
    I could list dozens of scripture texts that undergird “justification by faith” as a Kingdom tenet, not at all diminishing the importance of “love” but simply saying that love without faith has very uncertain eternal consequences. It sounds to me clearly like “another gospel” that Paul refers to in Galatians.
    Maybe I am misunderstanding Dr Nemeh’s propositions. Would you consider getting some biblical clarification from him as to the priority of “faith vs love” or “love vs faith”? Thanks for your time. Much love…david

    • God is love. The Bible repeatedly says that love is greater than faith. Jesus was so emphatic about the issue, he told us to even love our enemies. We are to love the unlovable and forgive the unforgivable.
      Jesus upon dying on the cross, descended to the dead. He revealed to them the mystery of the Holy Trinity. They understood. They believed. They followed Him to heaven.
      The same process continues now. Love is the key that opens the doorway to heaven. Without love the door is locked. Jesus continues to reveal himself to those in Purgatory who have that beautiful love within them. The love that binds us to God and everyone around us. The dead continue to come to a higher understanding of God and the mystery of the Holy Trinity. They continue to follow Jesus to heaven.

      Even in these podcasts, we have heard from individuals who have experienced near-death and found themselves in purgatory. Angels and Christ Himself came to their rescue. They were sent back to their bodies with a new found understanding of who Christ is and how they should live their lives. Boil down to one word, they are unanimous in stating the message… Love.

      Philip
