I'd rather spend eternity in hell with my friends and fellow humans than in heaven with these sick people.

Hard question. I still believe in the love of God. With that in mind, I don't think he will cast any human being in the 'lake of fire', there is some good in all of us, wether we're sick or not. On the other hand: we are humans with limited knowledge, but we can choose good and evil, we can choose bad while we know there is good. I believe in the good side of people, even if it's a small piece. Jesus knows our heart, he came and died for the scum of society, not just the elite.

According to most christians you can't do anything without commiting some sort of sin...So according to them you're screwed either way
If you're trying to correct what you believe was your sin, at least you're learning and making whatever corrections you believe is necessary. Thats progress
Hell on the other hand is just a means of control, it doesn't exist... We're all created equal, so you're no better or worse then anyone else regardless of your "sins"....
So if anyone tells you other wise.....tell them to go to hell!edit on 13-3-2011 by Akragon because: (no reason given)

Yes. If you don't believe the bible which you can prove using simple maths then yes you're going to hell. There's a mathematical authentication code in the Bible and anyone who can count to a hundred is capable of proving the bible. Sorry to be so abrupt but unless you see the truth you're going to hell.
I have never met anyone who has not sinned. Sin means short of perfection not wrong doing. ln regards to what happens to "good" people who don't believe, the bible (not people who call themselves Christians and are not) says that we are to love our neighbor as ourselves, if you live life that way then you have the heart of Christ and are saved. I guess my question is, if you are a non-believer, why do you care? If there is no God then the answer does not matter, if you are not a believer then then answer doesn't matter. The answer only matters if you are a believer.
You asked a question of Christians and the first people to respond were anti-Christians. What they don't want you to know is that you matter, and that what you do also matters. All religions believe that. Many people claim to be believers; but, they don't live it. To be a Christian is to accept love and forgiveness not a name. The reason there are so many false Christians is because they think believing Jesus lived saves them, it doesn't. The bible says that many will call to Jesus and he will tell them that he never knew them. He never knew them because they did not have a heart he could know, one of love.
Your question was not offensive; but, the responses from some were. Why don't they want you to even ask your question? Your question was reasonable and respectful. My recomendation is not to listen to people who claim to be Christians or non-believers, read the New Testament and decide for yourself what it says. Same answer I would give to any other question, read the source document and make your own conclusions. Be well.

I was raised Baptist Christian, and while I don't accept that stuff now, I was told, and have heard other Christians say this, that if you are not "Saved" and accepted Jesus as your personal saviour, then you are damned to eternal hell, and that's that.
