I think that even if you are not christian,you will make it in heaven! How do we know if what the bible says is true? We don't really have a reliable source for that. And just because you are not a follower does not? mean you are not his children.If God truly created us equally, in some way, why would there need to be a reason for going to hell or to heaven? In god's eyes we are his children,and nothing can change that.You shouldn't always trust something you read. I mean how do we know that they are hiding the truth from us with this bible?? How do we know it's not all made up?

Yes Yes Yes! Personally, I don't believe in hell, but if I did, I agree that our beliefs would have nothing to do with it.

StarryRoss- I think you're great. Thank you for being open minded and combating the stereotypes of your religion. It is admirable.

shinjite- Your comment  kind of ruined it for me. StarryRoss is talking about universal acceptence, and what you are saying is that atheists will be accepted in heaven if they stop being athesists. This defeats the original argument.

Jews don't believe in hell. I am a Jew. Why in the world would I go to hell if I don't believe it exists?

I do believe what the bible says but I also believe that it will take a lot of sinning to make it into h.ell. Only a few people will go there. The rest will go to different places in heaven.

I would like to just say , God does mention in the bible that non-believers won't make it in heaven. Would you want someone to live in a dorm with you knowing they wouldnt help with rent and bills? it would be pointless......

what the heck is the monky theory if you are talking about evolution evolution is not about us coming from monkeys it says that we had a common ancestor and by natural selection we came into being as we are now and i am not saying anything bad about religion i think religion is a very good moral guide line to live a decent life even though some things i dont agree with but that is me but if what about dinosaurs you cant tell me you dont believe in them because the bible said nothing about dinosaurs but dont be hardheaded and not consider things

i really find it stupid that you shouldnt go to heaven (if there even is one) just because you arent christian. im not religious at all. i think alot of the theories dont make any sense. and anyways, science has more proof than any religion. i think  you're article is great, and if there is a heaven, i would like to go there, and still believe what i want. ice cream.

Thank you. Thank you very much for writing this.

Religion can be a beautiful thing. Most of my friends are christian, and I have a massive appreciation for medieval/rennaisance writing, music, arts, etc. that would never be here were it not for their religious influences. But people need to know that the bible was written for and by people of the biblical times, who were quite often rather barbaric. And because all they knew was their "corner" of the world, so to speak, they would be quick to label anything too different as heresy.  The rules change with the times, and if we were to strictly follow the rules of a 2000 year old civilization, we would never have come as far as we have as a race.

You never needed to change my darling you just need to have confidence in yourself to be yourself and not change for someone else.

you don't have to believe in heaven and hell. You just need to have Jesus in your heart and except him as your personal savior and that he died for you on the cross and rose from the dead. I kinda of believe that you don't have to be christian to understand that and that Jesus is in your life so yea.

If you are not a Christian, you don't go to heaven is what I belive! It is wrong to think that just beliving in God will get you to heaven! I totally dissagree! If you want to go to heaven, you have to except Jesus Christ as your personal savior! He came and died on the cross for YOU! So if you want to get to heaven, you have to except Jesus's gift and except him as your savior! You are now going to be in my prayers!

"Meeting you was fate, becoming your friend was a choice, but falling in love with you was beyond my control."

Life is about choosing which cup you want. Hopefully, maybe there is no separate. Maybe everyone's path leads there, and the ultimate goal of life is to understand that diversity, even in religion, will not be punished but encouraged. Maybe That is men's true sin, to not allow diversity. Maybe that is the path God wants us to discover, how to live with one another and celebrate our different viewpoints. Diversity can bring chaos only because men have not trully accpeted how to live with people who are not exactly as they are. That is what I think we should be working towards. We're getting much closer, if you look at the course of history. Once we get comfortable, a new idea is thrown at us and then we must figure out how to live with it.

And equally, if there is no God, or the bible is not the truth, it wouldn't change just because you can't acknowledge it. The possibility is equal on both sides. If the bible is true, then your opinion shouldn't change just because people don't like it. If you absolutely believe it to be true, then follow it, but there are those who absolutely believe it to be false. They both have credible reasons, considering that the bible wasn't even written in English (the language we are speaking now), it was translated. Could the translators have been wrong about even a minor detail? If they were, that could discredit all the versions, as then they wouldn't be the true word of God and for hundreds of years we've been mass producing a book that only fits the version of what is true and untrue to one group of people (Christians).

And the argument that Christianity's popularity has to do with it's credibility can be swayed too. When people's feelings are involved, especially their fear of the unknown or their fear of pain, they can be talked into anything.

Though it is not mentioned at all in the bible that I have (whoever keeps re-writing it is either trying to confuse us on what acutally happened or they love putting their own stories into a book that many people take seriously), I am aware of that supposedly God created hell after he created heaven and earth but BEFORE he made man. Now, why would he do that? That would mean God would have known ahead of time that we were going to sin... but if he's God, if he loved us and didn't want to see us suffer in hell, he would have created us at least with less inclinations to follow "evil". He basically created hell before he made the people who would end up there.

Think about it. You don't give a baby a gun, and tell them not to use it or they'll get in serious trouble. The baby doesn't understand what the gun does, or even that it's bad, but you gave it to them, probably someone they've acknowledged as a trusted friend or parent. Why should they fear you or what you give them? If that baby ends up hurting themselves or others, then it is your fault, because it was you who gave them the gun when they were obviously too ignorant to know anything. You don't give weapons to stupid people. If in God's eyes we are stupider than sheep, why would you give them the means to cause harm? It sounds like he sets up tests that he knows we will fail. He knew we would sin (yes, he did, because if God is the past, present, and future, he should know the best path then), he knew that if Adam and Eve would eat from the tree of knowledge and so on, yet he seemed surprised when they did. He asks Why? Because you created them that way! Even the snake! I thought all creatures you made were good?

"Life's not about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain."

A parent and a child is a good example. If a child misbehaves, you punish him, not because you want to or because you're heartless, but because it will teach them not to do it again. You love the child and want to protect he/she, which is why you parents punish children when they do wrong. The same is true with God: He loved us so much that he sent his son to die for us that we may be spared from death. But, since God is so loving, he gave us the choice to accept his gift or reject it. If you reject it, the result is eternity in Hell. If you accept it, it is eternal life in heaven, with God.
