    I think that there is a heaven and that the righteous will get their reward in the afterlife.

    But what about "good folk" who worship another God or no God at all ?

    Are they automatically barred ?

    Torah teaches that every righteous person has a place in the world to come.

    But, if you're not Jewish, you get a room next to the noisy ice machine for all eternity.

    You have to believe Christ died for your sins and accept Him as your Savior. Do your best to live for Christ and repent your sins

    Good question.

    The most subjective, even solipsistic answer could be that so long as you live your life according to moral fact, then perhaps whatever God or godless philosophy one worships makes no difference after the end.

    Myself, and despite many personal side sojourns outside of Christianity, still believe steadfastly that through Christ's sacrifice on the Cross, or through the Logos, is the only path to an eternal afterlife. I also believe that the God of the Old Testament predates all other deities; godlike beings who could very well have existed also, in some time out of mind distant past. Perhaps lesser deities were and still are created and live through those who think them up and worship them. Who knows.

    Learning what you need to know and being the soul you need to be to get into heaven is all that is required.....being Christian gives you an easier path....
