Keeping in mind that institutions form their own particular prejudices, this question is a sore one in many circles.
Given that Christianity makes exclusive claims is it fair to assume that all who haven't had the chance to hear the Gispel are going to hell?
I was looking for a section in Romans where Paul deals with this subject. As I recall he says that those who lived by the guidance of their conscience would be justified by their conscience before God. Don't quote me on that, I'll have to find it first.
In the past I have rejected Paul's use of nature as a source of revelation. But the more I hear from theoretical physicists the more I begin to think that Paul was right. HE aside, and the protestations of others, the heavens domdeclare the glory of God.
I think Christians have something wrong. I have always responded to the question of someone going to hell or nat by saying that God didn't put me on that committee, or that I am more than happy to leave that dicision in God's very capable hands.
But, there is a proviso!
Christianity begins with the affirmation, και ανΦροπο γενετο αυτού! My favorite Gospel, second to John's, is Isaiah. One way that some look on it is that whole of Torah is pointing toward Jesus. The Jews feel very differently about that and so I remain basically mute on that subject.
Oh! The Greek means, "and was made man".
To me that is a powerful and foundational statement. All other statement have their genesis there. So I have to begin from the position that God is real. But, as I said, right at the start, I have NO knowledge of what God looks like, and if I did think that God looks this way or that way, that is idolatry and very wrong.
So, who gets to heaven, I am very glad to leave that in God's very capable hands.
Advice to composer, if you cannot address this logically, instead of your usual "drivel" stay away.
