Does God Send People Who Have Never Heard of Christ to Hell?

Does God Send People Who Have Never Heard of Christ to Hell? by Pat Robertson for CBN News

God does not send people to Hell because they never heard of Christ. He sends people to Hell because they have sinned. The judgment for sin will be in relationship to how much they knew. To phrase it another way, it is action in light of privilege. A person living in America has maximum spiritual privilege. Therefore, the spiritual standard for America would be the gospel of Jesus and everything in the Old and New Testaments. But someone who grew up in an uncivilized jungle might be held to account for the fact that something in his conscience told him there is a Creator worthy of his worship. The Bible says his conscience will either accuse him or excuse him on the day of Jesus Christ (see Romans 2:14-16). God is not going to condemn people if their own consciences excuse them. Regretfully, every human being has sinned against his or her own conscience.

God does not judge people for failure to believe in Jesus, but because they are sinners. The problem is that “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). For those who have received Jesus Christ as Savior, there will be forgiveness and mercy.

Will Babies Who Die Without Being Baptized Go To Hell?

Babies who are not baptized will not go to Hell because they are not guilty of anything. God will judge people on the basis of what they did in light of what they knew. Babies have not done anything wrong because they do not know the difference between right and wrong. And so they have not sinned. Furthermore, Jesus said, “Their angels always see the face of My Father who is in Heaven” (Matthew 18:10).

Remember also, original sin is a tendency to sin, not an act of sin. Original sin is not original guilt. To be guilty before God, a child has to understand that what he or she is doing is wrong.
