This question has alrdaey been asked, albeit in a different context: some denominations believe that people who have never heard of Jesus won't be sent to hell because they've never been given the chance to accept or deny him. Hence, any missionary who teaches someone about Jesus but fails to convert him has just sent that person to hell. There's a story about an Eskimo or someone asking a missionary these questions, and ends by asking, So why did you tell me all this in the first place?

I had a case in life. My friend lost in a real caisno the house. Wife left and took the children and the work he had lost. But as another friend once told him that at online caisnos, he won a car! Well, first friend went to Internet cafes to register with the caisno, got free chips for $ 10 and won in 2 hours which was enough money to rent an apartment. Then he won both the home and car, but his wife has not returned! Because he met a girl who did not cast him into trouble and was close! That is life, my friends!
St. Peter. Before you settle in, it seems there is a pborlem. We seldom see a high official around these parts,you see, so we're not sure what to do with you.' No pborlem, just let me in,' says the man.'Well, I'd like to, but I have orders from higher up. What we'll do is have you spend one day in hell and one in heaven. Then youcan choose where to spend eternity.' Really, I've made up my mind. I want to be in heaven,' says the senator.'I'm sorry, but we have our rules.'And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goesdown, down, down to hell. The doors open and he finds himselfin the middle of a green golf course. In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front of it are all his friends and other politicians who had worked with him.Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him,shake his hand, and reminisce about the good times they had whilegetting rich at the expense of the people.They play a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviarand champagne.Also present is the devil, who really is a very friendly guy who has a good time dancing and telling jokes. They are having such a good time that before he realizes it, it is time to go.Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevatorrises The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens on heaven where St. Peter is waiting for him. Now it's time to visit heaven.'So, 24 hours pass with the senator joining a group of contented souls moving from cloud to cloud, laying the harp and singing. They have a good time and, before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peter returns. Well, then, you've spent a day in hell and another in heaven. Nowchoose your eternity.'The senator re flects for a minute, then he answers: Well, I would never have said it before, I mean heaven has been delightful, but I think I would be better off in hell.'So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down,down to hell. Now the doors of the elevator open and he's in the middle of a barren land covered with waste and garbage.He sees all his friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash andputting it in black bags as more trash falls from above. The devil comes over to him and puts his arm around his shoulder. I don't understand,' stammers the senator. Yesterday I was hereand there was a golf course and clubhouse, and we ate lobster andcaviar, drank champagne, and danced and had a great time. Nowthere's just a wasteland full of garbage and my friends look miserable. What happened?'The devil looks at him, smiles and says, Yesterday we were campaigning Today you voted.'
