How do you expect someone to convert to Christianity when it means accepting that all their deceased family members have gone to hell?

I asked the basic question that heaven wouldn't be heaven if I knew my Mother or Cat had gone to hell I was told that god wipes the memory of them from you.
Please correct me If I'm wrong.

I can only tell you I am a Christian. I cannot prove it.

If my Dog isn't there.

It simply would not be my Heaven.

It's said that God removes all sadness and all tears from his followers upon entry to heaven. That would mean that a Christian recognizes each individual's responsibility for their own eternal choice.

That's leaves the question though, how does someone accept something when it means their family members are in hell.

Christianity doesnt mean you automatically go to hell when you die. I would ask first what makes you believe all the families souls would have went to hell ?

One doesn't know. However, when you think of a family that has no exposure to the tenants of Christianity, how would they react?

Me also.
I believe in some odd type of heaven but not hell because of these types of questions.
Heaven=God
Hell=from Man.

I'm not assuming that you're Christian or now, but I am asking you to place yourself in the shoes of an individual who's family has never had any exposure to Christianity or whom have always dismissed it.

How do you expect an individual who've always dismissed Christianity, to convert knowing that it would mean that your family members have gone to hell?

If heaven is real it has to be personal heavens hasn't it?.
Do we lose the feeling of self when in heaven? are we still individuals? do I have to be happy all the time becuase I like to be grumpy a little in the mornings.
Dunno but one thing for sure...we will all find out either way.

As I understand it, originally the only requirement of Christianity was to accept Jesus as your personal saviour, and everything else is added dogma by institutions with various secular agendas. I am not saying I am in agreement with any of this but I suspect the original message was purposefully obfuscated long ago.

Well they would stand in front of the Judge and answer his questions. Ill be honest the knowledge is out there I feel as if you say hey GOD I didn't know it'd be something that's inexcusable I mean now a days at least.. reply to: EternalSolace

To follow the Christian belief, one has to recognize that the only way to eternal salvation is accept Jesus Christ as their personal savior from eternal damnation.

When you look at what the Christians believe hell actually is, it leads me to wonder how Christians expect this from the non believing.

The bottom line is that it is a personal choice if they chose not to believe GOD would judge accordingly a reply to: EternalSolace

Yes, each is responsible for their own actions. That doesn't really address the issue at hand. How does a Christian convert, when it means that those they've held dearest have not accepted.

As far as the person that has never had exposure to Christianity : there are various passages in the Bible that take this into account. (I cant recall the exact passages now , will try later for you ) Basically , they state if you have never heard the word and have lived a good life then that will not be held against you .
And I am not a Christian, but well versed in most religions both past and present.
