A Nigerian man has taken to social media to share his thoughts on religion and the ideas surrounding heaven. The man identified as Mustapha Abubakar shared his thoughts on his Facebook page.
The man has argued that if gaining entrance into heaven depends on religion, the process of religion is rigged. He noted that it simply means that some people would inherit the chance of going to hell.
According to the man, if Islam is the religion that grants access into heaven, and one is born into a Christian home, the chances of the person going to hell is high. He added that in some cases it would be hundred percent.
Abubakar further stated that if inheriting heaven is in play, it means that the concept of heaven and hell is pointless.
The man explained that he believes that the idea of pitching one religion against the other is not right. He expressed that the most important thing is what it means to be a decent human being.

"If heaven exists and gaining entrance is dependent on one's religion during life, then it's safe to say that the process is rigged. It is even more rigged than the Kano elections. To begin with, there's a massive influence of circumstances of one's birth (COB) and early years on one's eventual religion.
"This is so powerful that one of my Professors in London once referred to religion and language as non-genetic heritable traits. So, if, for example, only Muslims are going to heaven, then by creating you into any non-Muslim family, God has essentially ensured that your odds (chances) of going to hell are exceptionally high. In fact, this is almost 100% in some cases. Conversely, if, for example, Christianity is the 'right' way to heaven, then the system of inheriting heaven has been rigged in favour of those born into Christian families and societies.
"The question then will be, given the supposed finality of hell or heaven (we are talking about eternity here!), and given the powerful influence of COB on which religion one ends up to be, can heaven or hell really be dependent on which religion one professes?
"There's something awfully too simplistic about this dichotomy, which has continued to plague humanity, pitching one group against another, that doesn't sound right to me. Also, should it really be about the (religious) group and its doctrines or about the fundamentals of what it means to be a decent human being on this planet?"
