Are there humans on this earth, who no matter what, can not be saved and go to heaven? Are there humans doomed to hell, even if the pray to God and ask Jesus into their heart?

Jesus Christ will return someday soon to judge both, the living and the dead.

The requirement for going to Heaven is that each person must receive Jesus Christ as his personal Saviour (John 1:12). John 3:3 says: "Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." Although it does not have to be a public confession, the church service is often the most convenient time for a person to be saved. There is a definite request in evangelical services for anyone who wants to be saved to do so during the altar call. God receives a person solely because he accepts Jesus Christ as his Saviour.

The Bible teaches that when we receive Jesus Christ, He gives us the gift of everlasting life (John 3:16, Romans 6:23). At this time we become a child of God (I John 3:1-3). When a child misbehaves, he is punished or chastised but not disowned from the family. Also study I John chapter 5 with regard to eternal life.

There are many who believe in Heaven but reject God's Word concerning a place called Hell. However, it is all or nothing with God's Word. One cannot take the parts of the Bible that are pleasing to his limited mind and reject that which is unsuitable to him.

Jesus said in Luke 16:22, "And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom..." That is Heaven. Christ goes on with the other side of the subject: "...the rich man also died and was buried; And in Hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said, Father Abraham have mercy on me, and send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame." There are two places. Again Jesus said in John 3:36: "He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him." Jesus said in John 6:47: "All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.
