I'm seeking clarification about our beliefs regarding heaven and the salvation of those who don't know Christ. I mean, there are different levels within heaven, right? in which case, for example, saints and martyrs would be in higher levels and closer to the throne of God than other believers who of course are also good but are not saints?
Also, what do you guys think about the salvation of people who are ignorant of God---I mean like....people in China who grow up with Buddhism and never discover the one true God---do you think that as long as they're good people that God has mercy on their souls and they don't end up in Hades and later Hell? Or is there no hope for these people?
thanks for your input.
