Christianity should be loving. One of the people on my course believes in predestination and another believes that there is no salvation without belief. I think these are really narrow and rather sad slants on the Christian message. Am I being naive or lacking in depth? I don't think so. God is love and whoever lives in love lives in God and God lives in them. That's all there is to it really.
Phil Gulley shared this story he got from a friend

It was about a church that decided someone needed to go preach to the Eskimoes. So they sent a missionary to go live with the Eskimoes and preach to them.
When he's done preaching, an Eskimo elder says, "Before you leave, let me ask you something. If we had never heard of Jesus and sin, would we have gone to hell when we died?"
The missionary said, "Well, of course not. Not if you hadn't heard."
And the Eskimo said, "Then why did you tell us?"
