A moral Atheist will go to Hell but an immoral Christian won't because they accepted Christ?

Hmmm...I'm puzzled. I know that there are many good people, from all religions and backgrounds. But reading a question about Hell got me thinking, what kind of God sends good people to Hell for forsaking him and bad people to Heaven for accepting him? It's sad to think a loving, giving person with no religion will go to Hell when a child-raping Christian can repent on his/her deathbed and go to Heaven. I can't appreciate a god who runs his religion that way.

  • One of the several reasons why I don't embrace any religion.

    Its a pretty skewed view isn't it?

  • It is all about Grace and Repentance. I don't believe that any 'TRUE' Christians can be immoral. God knows our hearts, and knows if we accept Him if we truly mean and believe it. If we do, then our lives will change.

  • I agree with you, it doesn't make sense. In my religion (Buddhism), there is no repentance; if you do good, you receive good. If you're evil, you receive the same. Seems fair to me. There is no person that can absolve you of your sins, it's on you to make good decisions.

  • Who said all the Christians are going to heaven? Bad people with any religion will go to hell. And the good person without any religion are going to hell cuz the biggest good thing is believing God. If you don't believe in God, does not matter how good you are.

  • Gee Anon@ 1244, I might as well pack my bags for Hell now. I don't believe in the imaginary guy in the sky stuff. I wonder if I can find an SPF HELL somewhere.
