    No, not if they accept him. Jesus saves all who accept him and confess their sins with their mouth and accept Jesus into their heart.

      This is the last time I answer it. Christ died to save us all from our sleep of death. Adam cursed us with his disobedience and Christ's obedience will make us all alive 1Cor 15:22.

    Some of us believe that Jesus, being God, can save whomever He darned well feels like it, before, during, or after His walk on this earth. After all, He is God, and God can do anything. No, MY Jesus allows people the freedom to condemn themselves to hell, by outright rejecting His message of love by their behavior; for if you reject love, you have rejected Jesus. Jesus/God is pure love. There are millions of loving Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, etc.that accept and live their lives with love (often more truly than 'Christians'). As a believer in Jesus (I am saved), you cannot convince me that people like Ghandi or the Deli Lama are going to hell. To think so is to misinterpret Jesus, who reminded us that to obsess about the letter of the law is to miss the message of the law. All of the Law can be reduced to this: love God and love other people.

    Adam's fall was nothing more than a display of mankind's true nature.  He chose to eat from the tree of knowledge knowing the consequences rather than eat from the tree of life which he was allowed to eat and have eternal life.  Since then man is still making the same choice, except it's not a piece of fruit he is refusing but Jesus Christ. 

    If being saved is about snapping one's divine fingers and magically transporting people to heaven my answer is no.  Since the reality of being "saved" requires making a conscience choice, the sad reality is that more people choose not to be saved by Christ despite the fact that there is no limit on the amount of people that can be saved.  That's my answer.

    No! You wanted a short answer. There it is.

    Well here is my answer to my question. The answer is no! But according to church theology, the answer is yes though many will not admit it. Words like "Few enter the narrow gate" make the hell believer believe that God has lost most of humanity to satan. I cannot for the love of Him who created me understand how they still call the cross victorious. I cannot pick a best answer because there is none.
