Who goes to hell - as far as those pious Bible Christians are concerned?

Who goes to hell - as far as those pious Bible Christians are concerned?
Who goes to hell - as far as those pious Bible Christians are concerned?

I suspect: EVERYBODY - except those maga-super-over-ÜBER-pious Bible Christians.

Am I right?

Many think there is a special group of 144,000 who will be allowed into heaven. I don't know all the details and wonder if that number covers all time...if when number 144,001 shows up then number 1 drops off to keep the number correct.

Others don't seem to have a limit to the number of people allowed and no matter how awful in life a person is admitted through the pearly gates if they say some magic words right at the last second.

It's all just so much BS no matter what story you go with.

The way I heard it was that the special ones were immortal and thus only around in the 'end times'. 
This belief is most prevalent amongst evangelical xtians who all seem to believe they are one of these immortals and are predestined to sit in judgment over the rest of us. Whilst they are very enthusiastic in their judging I remain to be convinced of their suitability for the role.

Alot fewer people than deserve to, would probably be a better answer. It is god's grace, after all.

I think it's fascinating that one of the more well intentioned christian beliefs, the equality of man as fellow sinner, is inextricably bound to an explicitly intolerant fundamental premise.

-then there's the red letter answer..easily my favorite. A loooooot of people are going to hell. Most of them evangelical christians. While they endlessly wring their hands over abortion and homosexers.... they get their stance on poverty, global warming, racial discrimination, the role of the military, capital punishment, foreign aid, and public education entirely wrong.
The essence of poverty, is that it annihilates the future - Orwell.

Who gets into heaven? Murderers, rapists, thieves, arsonists, pyramid schemers, virulent racists, paedophiles, recreational cannibals, genocides, and people who abandon kittens. Once you ask forgiveness for these and myriad other egregious sins, you’re golden.

One the other hand, you can spend your life being kind, warm-hearted and charitable. One day, though, you hit your thumb with a hammer and shout ‘JESUS FUCKING CHRIST!!’ And go straight to Hell.

Depends on what you mean by "pious Bible Christians", but if we're going with the typical Evangelical fundamentalist Christian, the very simplistic answer is every person (adult?) who has not put their faith in Jesus as Lord and Saviour. This is because sin is what condemns everyone to hell from the start, and you need Jesus to save you from that.
"Our attitudes towards things like race or gender operate on two levels. First of all, we have our conscious attitudes. This is what we choose to believe. These are our stated values, which we use to direct our behavior deliberately ... But the IAT [Implicit Association Test] measures something else. It measures our second level of attitude, our racial attitude on an unconscious level - the immediate, automatic associations that tumble out before we've even had time to think. We don't deliberately choose our unconscious attitudes. And ... we may not even be aware of them. The giant computer that is our unconscious silently crunches all the data it can from the experiences we've had, the people we've met, the lessons we've learned, the books we've read, the movies we've seen, and so on, and it forms an opinion." - Malcolm Gladwell
