    Where will I go when I die? After living my entire life on a deserted island...

    You lived your life in solitude. You were kind to Mother Earth and grateful for all she gave you. You created your own answers to the questions "where did I come from?" "What is my purpose in life?" and "Where do I go when I die?" Once it's over, will God accept you into Heaven, or reject you to Hell. Or something else...

    The question itself has many questions. So there will be many answers.
    Concerning God, he has built into man a conscience, so man already has a voice that speaks to him , so being isolated wont stop the voice. God would have in some way using his ownership of the earth, made a way for you to know about him. So your chances of dying without hearing from him will be impossible, as he is in all things and all things exist by him, even the island itself will bear witness.

    Okay, I see what you are saying. Is it really impossible to not hear from him. You say he is in all things and all things exist by him...but if you have no idea of who "he" is...what happens then. Will "he" present himself to you and accept you even after living a life without him?

    All questions have value but this one is usually used in regard to trying to find some soul that could not obey the truth and therefore in some way that exonerates you and others.
    I assume the best of intentions from you and thus that you have a real concern for this person. The answer is the same as it is to many questions and some will not like it but it is the truth.

    Answer: God will take care of this - He make create all things by saying them and He can handle this issue also. The question is do you trust Him to manage all things perfectly?

    First, for the believer in Jesus Christ, the Bible tells us that after death believers’ souls/spirits are taken to heaven, because their sins are forgiven by having received Christ as Savior (John 3:16, 18, 36). For believers, death is to be “away from the body and at home with the Lord” (2 Corinthians 5:6-8; Philippians 1:23). However, passages such as 1 Corinthians 15:50-54 and 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17 describe believers being resurrected and given glorified bodies. If believers go to be with Christ immediately after death, what is the purpose of this resurrection? It seems that while the souls/spirits of believers go to be with Christ immediately after death, the physical body remains in the grave “sleeping.” At the resurrection of believers, the physical body is resurrected, glorified, and then reunited with the soul/spirit. This reunited and glorified body-soul-spirit will be the possession of believers for eternity in the new heavens and new earth (Revelation 21-22).

    Second, for those who do not receive Jesus Christ as Savior, death means everlasting punishment. However, similar to the destiny of believers, unbelievers also seem to be sent immediately to a temporary holding place, to await their final resurrection, judgment, and eternal destiny. Luke 16:22-23 describes a rich man being tormented immediately after death. Revelation 20:11-15 describes all the unbelieving dead being resurrected, judged at the great white throne, and then being cast into the lake of fire. Unbelievers, then, are not sent to hell (the lake of fire) immediately after death, but rather are in a temporary realm of judgment and condemnation. However, even though unbelievers are not instantly sent to the lake of fire, their immediate fate after death is not a pleasant one. The rich man cried out, “I am in agony in this fire” (Luke 16:24).
