Do you go to hell for not believing in God(s)?Posted by: discomfiting
Constantly I see people saying nonbelievers go to hell. What about babies that die? Stillborns? Young children? People in third world countries where religions are banned or unknown? Do they still go to hell?
Yes they all go to hell
No they do not go to hell
Hell is not a literal place of torture. It is a "metaphor" meaning how remote you are from god. Hell is being distant from the holy spirit, and heaven is being close to the holy spirit. Most protestants believe in this theory, but most conservative Christians believe its a literal place of never ending torture. People need to STUDY the bible, and not just take it for literal detail.
You need faith and believing in God
They go to purgatory. Just kidding, no hell does not exsist.
I am a Christian, and our beliefs are how you treat others is pretty much the determining factor if you go to Heaven or Hell. We believe that Atheists can go to Heaven as well, as long as they respect others.
If there is a God, then he is objective. Why should believing in him make any difference? Would a murderer and rapist believer belong more in heaven than a philanthropist atheist?
I do not believe in a god, gods, a heaven, or a hell, but I kind of hope that there is an afterlife that is not run by a god or gods just because I think that it would be cool.
If you genuinely think that God/gods don't exist then he/they won't hold it against you; you were only thinking what you thought was right; you didn't mean to do wrong. If you never even heard of God then as a merciful deity he certainly wouldn't send you to Hell, not for that alone anyway.
