If someone doesn't know about Christ, and has never heard of Christ, then where do they go when they die?

Rom 14:11  For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, to me every knee shall bow, And every tongue shall confess to God. 

I gotta believe that every person will have an opportunity to hear of the Christ.  Maybe the question is ....when ?

Either we choose Christ as our Lord and Savior now and bow to Him, or we will be forced to do so at the great white throne judgement.  It will be too late at that time.  

Heb 9:27b  NKJV  but now, once at the end of the ages, He has appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself. Heb 9:27  And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment, Heb 9:28  so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many.  To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.

Believers will not be at the great while throne judgement.  Our names are written in the Lamb's book of life and we will be judged according to the good works He has done through us in this life.  Our sins are already blotted out with His blood, so only the good remains to be judged.  

Romans 1 says that all know about God through nature.

Rom 1:18  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, Rom 1:19  because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.

Rom 1:20  For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, Rom 1:21  because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Rom 1:22  Professing to be wise, they became fools, Rom 1:23  and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.

There will be no more chances for unbelievers to be saved.  Most are not saved because of their pride and the hardness of their hearts.   That is very hard to hear.  It should motivate us to share God's love for sinners with all that we know.

Something to keep in mind is that these verses do indicate that all know God through nature.....we do come to understand that there must be a  God that created everything. Even the person on a remote island in the south Pacific 800 years ago would know there is a God, but, they probably never her the name of Jesus.

John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.  No one comes to the Father, but through Me.”

 

Jesus is telling us that he and he alone decides where people go when they die...…     I don't think  we should try and put him in a box by limiting his decision with our own ideas.

Newborns that didnt have a choice. That's what you're asking and Christ called them unto Him. He has a plan for them. My wife and I had a miscarriage and know what God has shown us. Blessings waiting for us. :)

My wife and I also lost our first child to a miscarriage. Us and our  other children look forward to meet him/her, some day. We have no doubt.  A blessed reunion.

God said children are not to be kept from approaching Him through Jesus Christ. Scripture backs this and says they are innocent. I personally believe that during the thousand year period they're giving the choice and we are responsible (as parents) for taking them under our wings during this time.  After all satan is released one last time and a great multitude comes against Him but choice is given.

It may come down to the way someone treats others.

      Turtle's Thoughts?  I can't wait! How about you? 
    • By turtletwo
      I just came from a thread which got me to thinking about the disagreements about Hell in those who claim to be Christians. I have always believed that Jesus dying to redeem us from a real, eternal Hell is a necessary part of the gospel. It is surprising to me as to why a Christian could think otherwise.
      So I found an article from www.gotquestions.org, which I will copy and paste. If anyone wants to comment, feel free. All I ask is that things be respectful. Thanks.
      Note: I just thought it was an interesting matter.
      If anyone out there happens to know the original languages our scriptures come from, I hope you will weigh in as to whether this article is accurate. 
      I will post it on the next page, as this intro is getting long.

      I have heard that many Christians do not believe that hell is real. I found this to be absurd, but I am open to hearing both sides of the argument. So that is what has lead me to proposing this question, is Hell real?
      If it is or is not please explain.
       
      P.S. I for one do believe it exist. Sorry for the pun in the poll but is just too much for me to resist.
    • By Jonathan BeWell
      Please forgive me. I have been addressing you all wrong. I cannot claim a righteous anger defence [11 Brothers and sisters, do not slander one another. Anyone who speaks against a brother or sister or judges them speaks against the law and judges it. When you judge the law, you are not keeping it, but sitting in judgment on it. 12 There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the one who is able to save and destroy. But you-who are you to judge your neighbor? - James 4:11-12 New International Version (NIV)]. God wants better. I cannot scare you into heaven anymore than I can drag out of hell. God is in control. He makes and lets everything happen. All has and will happen for Christians' good [28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[a] have been called according to his purpose. - Romans 8:28 (NIV)]. My questionable Facebook activity has led to this apology and following testimony. May it encourage you and give you hope. Praise God. 

      Jesus Christ saved me from homosexual tendencies [10 for the sexually immoral, for those practicing homosexuality, for slave traders and liars and perjurers-and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine - 1 Timothy 1:10 (NIV)]. In my dark past I flirted with ideas, the scene and foreplay of man on man sexual relations. In the moment of those times it was a distraction and escape from my living hell. Such activity always had bad consequences [35 "Therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says: Since you have forgotten me and turned your back on me, you must bear the consequences of your lewdness and prostitution." - Ezekiel 23:35 (NIV)]. Yet like a nicotine addiction I was drawn back to get lost in that fleeting moment of oblivion. It and I was miserable. I will not give details here and now publicly. In person I am happy to answer questions and share Christ's solution with you. Praise God. 

      I love you. I care for your well being. My half life of suffering has grown great compassion and empathy. I weep and mourn for the lost, rejected, down trodden and oppressed, spit upon and left for dead. I know and understand because I was there as one of them. Now I am found, nurtured, lifted up and suffering gladly only because of Jesus Christ [17 But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds,' declares the Lord, 'because you are called an outcast, Zion for whom no one cares.' - Jeremiah 30:17 (NIV)]. Praise God. 

      He saved me from my living hell involving depression, drugs, marijuana, alcoholism, willful sin, pornography, homosexual tendencies, the occult, blasphemy, loneliness, numbness and people who accepted this and let it persist [3 For you have spent enough time in the past doing what pagans choose to do-living in debauchery, lust, drunkenness, orgies, carousing and detestable idolatry. - 1 Peter 4:3 (NIV)]. Now I am healed, restored, alive and well because I believe and am born again. I bear much fruit and look forward to a bright future in Christ. I will never return to the enemy. It pains me to look back or even be reminded of such serious suffering. I am sorry for your suffering. I am sorry I made you suffer. I continue to repent. Life is good to wake up to eternally because of the Son of God, my personal Saviour, our Lord [12 Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved." - Acts 4:12 (NIV)]. Thank God.
