    He would have the Gospel preached to him and given a chance to accept or not. If not he would be accountable for his sins. Then he would rise from the dead in the resurrection at the coming of Christ or at the end of the millinium like everyone else and be judged according to his works as stated by the scriptures.

    So you think that folks will have a "chance for redemption" after they die? Wow, where does it mention that in the Bible?

    Other than the Parable of the Prodigal Son and a few passing statements in the Epistles of Peter nowhere. The Bible is clear that we aren't judged until the resurrection. However, there is a space of time between death and resurrection.

    Of course you are assuming I only believe whats in the Bible.

    So you believe in a purgatory state?

    The Prodigal son PARABLE doesn't say or elude whatsoever to your case - in the story, the son never physically died...

    Which statements in Peter come to mind?

    Hebrews 9:27 states that [M]an is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment. I have yet to see where God allows a "second chance" to hear and accept the Gospel. Besides, one would be very hard pressed not to believe, if the Author of the Gospel was the one relating it to you.

    Siddhartha Guatama Buddha was born in the Sixth Century B.C. and therefore never heard the message of salvation. I don't think this applies here.

    I'm also thinking of the parable about the guy who was in hell? and looked over and saw Abraham and his servant and said "Please! Send one drop of water, I thirst!" then something about "Let me go back and warn my brothers!" - Naturally this was before Christ, but I think if there were means for salvation after death, the man in the flames would have been offered. Does that 'lesson' apply to the question you're addressing?
