Will Helpless Children Born in Non-Christian Countries Go to Hell.

How come children born in countries that are desolate or are away from Christian countries are doomed to hell, even if they have no choice or control over the matter since they simply just don't know about Christianity. Consider the Islander Countries such as Hawaii, New Zealand, Samoa, Tonga etc. There were whole generations of people on those Islands, with people that (centuries ago,) had absolutely no idea of the existence of the Christian God and of Jesus. Now according to Christian belief, all of these people are meant to be burning in hell for not believing. (Very mature. I know when you are trying to explain something to someone but they don't believe in you sucks, but an eternity of suffering is slightly a bit over the top- in God's case as well.) So why didn't God even bother to inform these people of Christianity? It makes you wonder...

This just goes to show how man-made Christianity- and other occults- are.

This is not right. A simple google search will tell you otherwise. This, http://www.internetchurchofchrist.org/pearl-doallnonchristiansgotohell.html, provides a fairly solid argument against the idea that Non-Christians automatically go to hell.

Also your answers are loaded. You can either vote for God being mean or God being right, which automatically assumes that your premise was correct, which it isn't.

Don't forget that the islanders worshiped other Gods and idols, and they had no idea of the Sabbath.

So that equals to... 3 out of 10 of the Commandments, brazenly broken.

Was God too lazy to show the Christian way to them before they became invaded and were forced to be Christian?

Lol first of all, neither of these answer choices are very neutral. :P But more importantly, how can you say so confidently that such children are going to hell?

Because they are non-christian. And non-christians go to hell.

Nah, I think the Christian belief is that those who reject Christ go to hell. There's a difference.

Side: Yes they will (God says so)

Ofcourse he won't. He will never do such a thing. Same for the people before the prophets or the people who lived in a time when the teachings of God were not taught to the children correctly, or children raised by uneducated people who don't know anything about the true religion (depending on what to you it is, it is disrespectful for me to simply say my religion is true for no reason at the moment).

Laws clearly stating that none shall worship other Gods or false prophets take up almost half of the Ten Commandments- including the "Keeping the Sabbath Holy" Law.

Well sometimes Christian missionaries go to the places in that area that you spoke of and preach the good news of Jesus Christ to them. Some of the people will not accecpt that Jesus was alive. It says in the Bible that some people heard about Jesus but it had no value to them when they heard. Also Christian missionaries are going around the world to every single nation and country on earth to preach the Gospel and everybody will know who Jesus is but if they don't accecpt there is another time they have a chance to believe in Jesus.

What about the generations Islanders who believed in other Gods.

Well they choose what they wanted to choose. That is why God gave us free will. Hell was not suppose to be for us it was only suppose to be for Satan and his followers. Jesus wants everyone to go to heaven.

The opposing position, "This is not right (God's mean)", contains the extremely common (in atheist vs. theist debates) argumentum ad hominem fallacy. Why is it that so few (none on this site, if I'm not mistaken) cannot debate without being succumbed to this fallacy?

Is it not mean that God decided to doom generations of people to hell without the knowledge of his existence?
