Does being a "non" believer in Jesus Christ equal that of being a murderer?

When you hear someone is an atheist/other non christian believer, does this equate to them going to hell as any murderer would?

  • Most Non-Christians don't believe in hell, and why would they be considered a murderer for not believing in Jesus Christ?

  • The Bible says all sin is equal. The only unforgivable sin is deny Jesus Christ. Even a murderer that has repented and accepted Him will be allowed into heaven. No sin is greater than another. Man has put a scale on sin, not God.

  • No. And, please, don't take offense to this, but as a Christian, I believe the Bible is very clear. Jesus was very clear. The only way to avoid hell is to accept Him as Savior. I know many don't believe that, and I'm not criticizing or judging in any way. I am just stating my own personal opinion based on my beliefs, and readings. But, unless a non-believer actually committs a crime, they are simply just non-believers. And, you probably don't want to hear this, but there are many death-row inmates who accept Christ. As I said, this is just my opinion, so please, don't be offended. I don't mean any offense in any way.

  • "why would they be considered a murderer for not believing in Jesus Christ? "

    LOL no I meant, as I've read, that only murderers, rapists and non believers in Jesus go to hell. So when someone hears one is an atheist/non believer, do they view them the same as they would a murderer?
