Hi Sue, I think many people grew up either in or outside of church hearing, "You will go to hell if..." Many things have been added, as Pharisees added to the law, to this list which are not found in the Bible. Your question is one of them. The simple truth is this: Acts 4:12 "And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved." and so many other verses John 3:16, 1 John 5:11-12, etc. Therefore, one's fate hangs on whether or not he/she has faith in Christ alone. All other actions or inactions do not have any bearing on one's eternal destiny. One may ask, "What does the faith in Christ look like?" which is a whole topic onto itself but to put it succinctly, it is the faith that bears fruit and endures to the end. Hope this helps.
