True Deists Are Muslims

I agree that no one should follow Mohammedism (aka Sunnism). Here is what I wrote before:

Thomas Paine was a follower of God’s natural law. Of course, only the God knows what is inside people’s hearts, but I believe that Deists who believe in the God and do good work are Muslims. Here is the definition of a Muslim from the Quran:

"…Anyone who believes in the God and does good work, He will remit his sins, and will admit him into gardens with flowing streams. They abide therein forever. This is the greatest triumph." (QURAN 64:9)

Compare this to what Thomas Paine, the 18th century Deist, says on the first page of his book, The Age of Reason: “I believe in God, and no more; and I hope for happiness beyond this life.”

That is why I believe that the true Deists who do good work are indeed Muslims.

However, some of the Deists of late (at least some of their web sites that I found on the Internet) have been quite arrogant and even blasphemous with respect to anything that they have no knowledge of.
