...from different Christians.
Some will say that anyone who does not accept Christ as the way, truth and life for their salvation while on earth is destined for eternal, conscious torment in hell.
Some will say the same, except that instead of eternal torment, they will just be annihilated from existence.
Some will say that these people may have an appropriate faith in the Creator despite misunderstanding/not knowing all the details of Christ (i.e. God knows their hearts).
Others will affirm that Christ is the way, the truth, the life -- that there will be self-imposed separation from God for those that reject Him -- but that this isn't the end of the story (i.e. all will be reconciled in the long-term, because of His love and mercy).
I am persuaded of the last of these views.
