Time for a question of a theological nature. First of, I'm a convinced atheist. That being said, I find theology to be a very interesting subject nonetheless.
So, recently I've been thinking a bit about the concept of the Christian hell. More specifically about who (assuming that hell is a real place and that Christianity is right) would end up there, and most specifically of all if I would.
If I had at some point been brought into Christianity and had then denied God's existence it's probably not that hard to answer. I'd be taking the elevator downstairs when my time comes. However, I've never been a part of any church and haven't even been baptized.
I've heard it said many times that the unbaptized children go to Limbo rather than heaven or hell. And that from there on they need to find God to go on into heaven. I can't remember in what context I've heard that though, so anybody able to back that up would be welcome to do so.
If that is indeed correct, would it apply to me? I mean, I'm not a child. I'm (supposedly) an adult by now and one could argue that since I've had the chance to find and accept God in the time I've had on earth, I would go to hell, baptized or not.
What is Christianity's (I realize there might be several answers since there isn't not one universal form of Christianity) view on unbaptized heathens in general? What becomes of them?
