If someone is a good person without believing in god only good choices. Does that make them better or worse in the eyes of god?

Because if im a good person by choice and i don't need to read the bible to do so doesn't that mean that im just naturally a good person and as such should i not be able to go to heaven (or any equivalent for the differ religions) or would I still be damned.

  • Aug 26 2011: doing good is good but not ACCEPTED if no believe in God. only deeds done FOR God are accepted by God.
    if a human not believe in God and do good in life at Judgement day can not claim reward for good deeds and if so the reply of God will be:

    you did goods for yourself not for me. you received your reward in world like money/respect/prestige/salary and so on. you did not for me to I reward you. you received your reward and not you not creditor.

    also please note it is impossible a human not have a God.
    what you obey is your God. even yourself.
    if you obey science your God is science. if obey stomach its your God. and if some one obey wishes of himself his "self" is his God:

    and God promised forgives all sins unless association with Him:

      which God are you talking about? are you talking about sub-human God? A greater God sees only your good deeds and good action. nothing else.

      "also please not it is impossible a human not have a God."
      may be. but there are better Gods than Allah.
      • Aug 27 2011: det,
        "which God are you talking about?"
        I said before I am talking of Islam God as known in Koran.
        God does not ACCEPT any kind of good deeds.
        for example please reply:
        your god does accept this as a good?:
        if some one steal money from a rich and give it to a poor does your God accept it as a good deed or not?
        also if some one does not believe in God so why do good? what is meaning of good without God? perhaps you say if some do good we will have a better society. OK so living in a better socity is reward of that human. any reply to this question (why we should do good deeds?) is the reward of goods and so why should reward again when he have received the reward before? its like you work one and get salary twice.

        "are you talking about sub-human God?"
        no a creator of human

        "A greater God sees only your good deeds and good action. nothing else."
        no God see both goods and bads. but only ACCEPT goods done for God not goods done by a human for himself (not for God).
        its like a worker come and work in your home without you have asked him work for you and then he ask wage from you. why you reply? especially when you did not have any need for that work.

        "but there are better Gods than Allah."
        I want that God. what/who is it?

          i also said before that i'm talking about Lord Brahma as known to everybody.

          "God does not ACCEPT any kind of good deeds."
          thats your God. my God knows exactly whats on your mind. so that ex: God know exactly what was the intention of stealing and he decides it is good or bad.

          "also if some one does not believe in God so why do good? what is meaning of good without God?"
          tomorrow if you know there is no God, do you run around stealing, raping and killing people?

          "no a creator of human"
          only human creates God.

          "no God see both goods and bads. but only ACCEPT goods done for God not goods done by a human for himself (not for God)."
          there is no way of knowing it. Define God first plz.

          "its like a worker come and work in your home without you have asked him work for you and then he ask wage from you. why you reply? especially when you did not have any need for that work."
          needs are for human and sub human. God is not what you think.

          "I want that God. what/who is it?"
          read Upanishads an d Bhavad Gita.
