People who don't believe in Jesus aren't saved, so they go to hell. What about people who live where Christianity isn't prevalent? What if people haven't been taught about Jesus do they go to hell too?

Is a YOUNG child really at fault??? No. So when does the age of accountability start?? I tend to believe around the age of 16, 17, 18.... (and of course older).
For a the every young it's NOT their OWN fault, but there does become a point and time that we do have to be accountable for what we do (or fail to do) and NOT say....well my parents never taught me any different...
My first post said at NO fault of their own...... If they have "heard" of Christ that means they are NOT totally ignorant like your first post suggested, but they can't be held totally accountable if they die at a young age either, because it's NOT totally their OWN fault.
But as I stated there does become a point in time that they can't just brush it off as well my parents never taught me they were atheist.

Most of your answers lead me to believe that Christianity is not for me. I KNOW God loves me. I know it just as surly as anyone. I am not going to hell. I have no doubt in my mind about that.
Not everyone is taught about Christianity in the same way. In fact some people are never taught about it. How can we all come to the same conclusion when we have different experiences and are not given the same information. Some children are born to Christian parents and go to church every week. Some children born in foreign countries and never lay eyes on a bible. Even if at one point they are "exposed" to Jesus, that's not the same opportunity to be "saved."
I'm sorry, but I cannot believe in a faith where people who live good lives go to hell because they haven't been taught something.
