Why only Muslims will enter paradise?

Now.. I really have a problem with this one. Are we so special that only muslims will be allowed to enter heaven? The rest who dont have the tag of "Muslim" on them .. are condemnded to hell? Does one has to be a "Muslim" per se to achieve this privilige? Cant a Christian for that matter enter paradise?

I dont think so. God tells me in in Chapter 2 vere 62
[2:62] Those who believe (in the Qur'an), and those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabians,- any who believe in Allah and the Last Day, and work righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord; on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve
So anyone who performs the righteous deeds, believes in one God, believes that he/she will be responsible for his/her acts on the day of judgement - be that person Christian, Jew, Hindu or anyone else - can enter paradise.

I like what this verse says. So I think so.

so...islam may not be considered as the only religion that has been finally approved by god..... so one may chose from the array of the ..." divine religions" ..and follow any one of them ....and ...presto...he/she qualifies for the first class seats in paradise...eh...?!!!!
