Is it true that all non-Christians today will go to hell?

The majority of Christians, pastors, and ministers believe that now is the only day of salvation. It means that people who don’t believe in Jesus (Yahshua) during this lifetime will be eternally tormented in the ever-burning fire of hell. Thus, many missionaries and Christians assumed the responsibility to convert as many non-believers as possible. They travel around the world trying to save souls and lead them to Christ.

To set the record straight; I admire devoted Christians who dedicate their lives in preaching the Gospel. I am always amazed of stories about some Christians sell all their possessions, forsake all that they have, and live a missionary life. However, doing the right thing for the wrong reason can be very misleading and most often than not, dangerous.

Is it really true that all non-Christians today will go to hell? Is the belief that people who don’t accept Christ will be eternally damned?

Is it true that all Non-Christians today will go to hell

A dilemma most Christians don’t want to face

Now, here’s a dilemma for those who believe that non-Christians will be doomed to hell for eternity. (For one, the Bible does not teach that the wicked with be burned forever in hell.)

If God is love (I John 4:8), isn’t it unfair for Him to destroy the people who have never heard of Jesus Christ? Is it fair for Him to punish people in hell for being born in the wrong place at the wrong time? How about those millions of babies who didn’t even have the chance to even understand what the Bible says? How about those people who lived and died in places where Christianity is forbidden or during the times when it would be difficult for them to know Christ? Will they all be thrown into the lake of fire even if it wasn’t their fault?

Think about this for a second: Billions upon billions of people have lived and died on earth who didn’t know God and Jesus Christ. Throughout the history of mankind, only a tiny percentage of humanity can even be qualified to be called Christians. Even today, the number of non-Christians are higher compared to those who are Christians.

If this is the case, then God is a complete failure! He could not even save the majority of mankind from the evil works of the Devil!

Are we worshiping a God of failure? Or there’s something wrong with what most Christians believe today?

Surely, there’s something wrong with the belief that God will burn people in hell even if they didn’t have the chance to hear of His message. That’s why in this blog, let us examine what the Bible really say about non-Christians and their ultimate destiny.

Something to consider

II Peter 3:9 tells us:

“The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, NOT willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.”

Ezekiel 33:11 adds:

“Tell them that as surely as I, the Sovereign LORD, am the living God, I DO NOT ENJOY SEEING SINNERS DIE. I would rather see them stop sinning and live. Israel, stop the evil you are doing. Why do you want to die?”

These are just a few verses showing God’s infinite mercy, love, and compassion toward us. He does not want anyone to perish. In fact, He wants to save as many people as possible.

So, what is the fate of those nonbelievers and non-Christians? Will they also be saved or be eternally tormented in hell-fire?

Non-Christians will be given their chance to salvation

God is the God of justice and mercy at the same time. He is fair. He is compassionate to all of mankind. The most famous verse in the Bible tells us:

For God so loved the WORLD, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

Now, it didn’t say, “For God so loved the Christians.” It didn’t say, “For God so loved a few people.” It says, For God so loved the WORLD!” What an amazing revelation from the Bible! The problem with most Christians today don’t read the next verse. We read:

“For God sent NOT his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved” (verse 17).

Did you just grasp what you read? It goes directly contrary to what most Christians believe. God didn’t send His Son to condemn mankind. His primary purpose is to save them and not to burn as many people as possible in hell!

So what does this mean? God will give non-Christians and nonbelievers their chance to salvation. But how?

The Resurrection of the dead

Here’s an astounding TRUTH that you need to learn! God will resurrect all people from the time of Adam and Eve to the last people who have been conceived! Why? To finally give them the chance that they didn’t have during their first life!

We read Revelation 20:4-6:

4 And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. 5 BUT THE REST OF THE DEAD DID NOT LIVE AGAIN UNTIL THE THOUSAND YEARS WERE FINISHED. This is the first resurrection. 6 Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.”

Knowing that unbelievers are not forever lost but will be given a chance in the future gives us the blessed hope and confidence in God.Here’s something that is not popularly taught in the Bible. The true believers and Christians today are not found in this world’s famous Christian denomination. Throughout the history, Christians have been a small, persecuted group of people. They are known to be a little flock (Luke 12:32). God is working with just a select few, and He is preparing them to be kings and priests during Jesus’ reign here on earth (Revelation 5:10). They will rule with Christ for a thousand years. During the Millennium, Jesus, along with His saints, will teach the people who survive the great tribulation, God’s way of life.

After the thousand years, there will again be another resurrection. We read it in Revelation 20:11-13:

“11 Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. 12 AND I SAW THE DEAD, SMALL AND GREAT, STANDING BEFORE GOD, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works.”

These verses are telling us that the people who haven’t heard of Christ, the non-Christians and non-believers, will finally be given the chance to obtain their salvation. They will be taught about the truth and God’s way of life. For the first time in their lives, they will know God, Jesus Christ, and the glorious life that they will have if they accept God’s offer.

Final words

I know this is a big topic. I recommend that you request a free copy of the booklet, “What Happens After Death? to find out more about this vital issue.

Non-Christians will be given their chance to know God during the second resurrection. All those who have lived and died are not forgotten by God. They will be resurrected after the millennial reign and be taught of God’s way of life.

God is fair. He will not condemn people just because they live in the wrong place at the wrong time. Everyone will have their one and only chance of salvation.

So will non-Christians burn in hell? The answer is no provided that they repent and follow God when they finally get to know the truth during the second resurrection. This is the hope that we all must have as Christians. Our loved ones, including the billions of people on earth, who didn’t know God and Christ are not forgotten and lost. God will resurrect them and give them the opportunity to be part of His Family.

  6. This is nonsense, you did not proved anything here. The Revelation 20:11-13 is about judgement of the dead. There’s even no mention of resurrection of the dead. You must continue the reading up to verse 15. Judgement is not teaching about the truth, it is the time to face all the consequences of our act. You always took text out of context. You only read what you want to read.


    • Hi BhelaiM,

      I believe I have made my point really clear with this article. I know it’s kind of difficult to grasp the enormous significance of this article. If you don’t know the whole picture of God’s plan of salvation, it’s really difficult to understand the concept being said here. You can’t really understand God’s plan of salvation without keeping His Feasts as listed in Leviticus 23.

      Anyway, I believe the blog is sufficient to make my point. It’s up to you if you want to learn more. If you wish to learn more and you’re mind is open to God’s truth and ready to ditch away the tradition of men, let me know and I’ll be happy to send you more resources. Just give me your email address and I’ll send them to you.



      • Another thing, how can we connect what has been said in Hebrews 9:27 with your teaching of 2nd chance on the 2nd resurrection?
        By the way, some of my comments are not showing on the comments section.


      • I understand it is difficult to explain these truths to you because these are advanced knowledge, BhelaiM. Especially for people believing that being in the New Covenant means getting rid of the Commadnments of God.

        Here’s what the Bible says, today, God is only working with a small group of people. He is not saving all the humanity today. That’s why in Revelation it says that only 144,000 people will be saved during this time. After the millennial reign, the rest of humanity will be given their chance.

        I know this is a huge topic. If you want to leran more, I’ll be more than happy to give you free resources. Just email me

        P.S. please note that I don’t manage my blog full time. Thus, I can’t answer all comments immediately.


      • God’s plan of salvation has nothing to do with your theology of second chance on the second resurrection. God’s plan of salvation is for the people living on earth while they still have a chance. You can also get the lesson from the parable of the rich man and Lazarus.
        The feast listed in Leviticus 23 are another foreshadows of the coming Messiah and his new covenant with the people. These feast were given to the people of Israel for them to remember what God has done to them and also a reminder that there is a Messiah to come who will fulfill all of these as these are illustration of God’s plan of salvation to people. But all of these has been completed or fulfilled by the Lord Jesus Christ, the Messiah, when He sacrificed Himself, died on the cross and rose again. There is no mention in the God’s plan of salvation that you will have 2nd chance on the 2nd resurrection.
        Therefore, i can say that Celebrating these feasts are again another denial of what Jesus had done on the cross. Celebrating these feast, like most of the modern Jewish today, do mot accept that Jesus Christ is the Messiah. They are still expecting that their messiah will come.
