Will Christians enter Paradise or go to Hell?

Are You Ready For Islaam
Will Christians enter Paradise or go to Hell? Sura 5:69 says “Yes”, Sura 5:72 (just 3 verses later) says “No”.
The first says that those who “believe in Allaah,” i.e. became Muslims, shall be saved. This is explained in sufficient detail by the proceeding verse, verse 68, which requires them to first accept the Noble Qur’aan and “stand straight” (Arabic: “Tuqeemoo”) the Bible before they shall be considered in possession of any portion of guidance…. Strange how the author of this list managed to side-step the requirements that are presented and which first must be present in them in order for them to be saved. All he reads is the word “saved.” The stipulation that they must first follow the Noble Qur’aan is for some reason conveniently disregarded.
So, what is meant by the condition “those who believed”? Well, in case it is not obvious, it simply means to submit to Allah and obey the commands of His messenger Muhammad (Salal’lahu allAyhi Wasalam). We find this spelled out in, for example, Al-Hujurat(49):14 where we read:
“and the bedouins said: ‘we believe.’ Say [unto them]: You have not yet believed, but say: We have submitted. But belief has yet to enter into your hearts. But if you obey Allah and His messenger (Muhammad) he will not withhold from you aught of your deeds. Verily, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most-Merciful.”
So belief is the following of Allaah and His messenger Muhammad (Salal’lahu allAyhi Wasalam).
The second verse presented, that of 5:72, contrasts those who followed Muhammad (Salal’lahu allAyhi Wasalam) and obeyed Allah with those who did not believe in Allah, rather they said that Jesus (pbuh) was a god, part of God, or in any way more than human. And thus, they shall not be saved.
