Qur’an 2:62 - Will a Christian go to Paradise or not?

When we read the Qur’an about the final destination of Christians, we find two different destinations:

Christians will go to Paradise - Qur’an 2:62, 5:69

“Lo! Those who believe (in that which is revealed unto thee, Muhammad), and those who are Jews, and Christians, and Sabaeans - whoever believeth in Allah and the Last Day and doeth right - surely their reward is with their Lord, and there shall no fear come upon them neither shall they grieve.” (Qur’an 2:62, 5:69).

Christians will not go to Paradise - Qur’an 5:72, 3:85

“And whoever desires other than Islam as religion - never will it be accepted from him, and he, in the Hereafter, will be among the losers.” (Qur’an 3:85). See also Qur’an 5:72.


While two verse say that Christians will go to Paradise, two other verses are a denial. Both cannot be true, so we have a contrast and contradiction. Only one error falsifies the Qur’an as a perfect book and this error is one of the found errors in the Qur’an.
