How can a being be "perfectly righteous" if he condemns billions of people to Hell for all eternity because of something they did (or did not do) during their very brief lifespan... especially those who were not even aware of the christian message....As a Christian, I believe in an afterlife. Those who have accepted Christ's sacrifice on their behalf will join Him in Heaven. Those who reject Christ will spend eternity in Hell.
Being good or evil has nothing to do where one spends eternity. Works has nothing to do with it. Eternal life in Heaven depends solely upon the works (sinless life, death and resurrection) of Jesus Christ, and His perfect righteousness.
As the old Christian hymnal says "I need no other argument, I need no other plea, it is enough that Jesus died, and that He died for me."
