We all are going through trials at certain points of our life when Satan makes requests of God to swift us and sadly many fall and do not stand up. Is it because they are lukewarm Christians or lacking of faith?

I don't think there's anyone in Hell yet because the resurrection for judgement hasn't happened yet. They are in the ground waiting for it. If everyone who died is already in heaven or hell then who will be resurrected to be judged? The graves would be empty of souls. And speaking of judgement, we can't know if a Christian will go to Hell because it's God's judgement to make. If he decides to have mercy on someone who in our eyes deserves hell, what is it to us? Everyone deserves hell!

Your title question is patently ridiculous on several levels.

First, you have no firsthand knowledge of where anyone ends up, so your question is speculative.

Second, your understanding of the concept of "Christian" is suspect at best.

Third, you have titled your first thread with an inflammatory question bordering on heresy, which is a good way to get yourself written off as a self-appointed prophet, whack-job, troll, or otherwise eminently ignorable person.

Maybe next time, don't boldly demonstrate your ignorance of basic Christian theology.

Oh... and welcome to CC.

Romans8:25- Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall.....tribulation,......or distress......or persecution,.......or famine,.....or nakedness,......or peril.....or sword
Verse37- Yet in ALL THESE THINGS,we are more than conquerors, thru Him that loved us.

On these things I think it is simply lack of trust in Him,if we allow this to separate us. I have found these struggles personally draw me closer!

It's the sins of the heart which SEPERATES us from Him! Hatred,,covetness,lust,bigotry,,doubt, self righteousness,pride,vanity,conciet,arrogance being unstable and wishy washy ect.ect. Jesus Himself said " from the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh,""and also" it is not what goes into the body that harms,but rather what comes out from the heart" ! Yes Satan can hinder but thankfully he has to ask God for permission to truly sift us!

SIN SEPERATES FROM GOD,for the wages of sin is death. If you LOVE your sins more and keep gathering more sins upon your soul,then WITHOUT REPENTANCE....YOU SEPERATE YOURSELF FROM HIM!

What is the purpose of the cross then?
Secondly, Do true christians live with these thoughts?

Welcome aboard CC, I pray this place blesses you, that you find sanctuary in His revealing.

A christian in hell to me is likened to the Devil in Heaven.

Devil didn't belong in heaven and Christians do not belong in Sheol.

The Lord is my chosen portion and my cup; you hold my lot. The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance. I bless the Lord who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me. I have set the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad, and my whole being rejoices; my flesh also dwells secure. For you will not abandon my soul to Sheol, or let your holy one see corruption. You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
Psalms 16:5‭-‬11 ESV

I disagree with you. Since the Lord shows a few of us in vision (check hell and heaven testimonies on youtube) that there are many in Hell already burning and tortured. Who will be resurrected to be judged? Those who will live in the 1000 year of reign of Christ.
"it's God's judgement to make" - of course only the Lord can judge but it is also up to Him if He want to reveal anything to us that takes place right now.

If you think so, than you have to read the Bible and not papers of Catholics or other apostate churches. I see now that the devil is working here as well.

Professed or unprofessed here don't make different because they are Christians; you should've said that true believers in Christ will not go to Hell. Your statement is wrong here. And I tell you that there are many there sadly. Maybe it is better for you to close your eyes and ears not to hear about this inconvenient tidings. Check those HEll and Heaven testimonies on youtube. I know that there are many false testimonies there but not all of them are false. The Lord wants to show us signs but most of us do not want to listen. Christians sitting in lukewarm water!

Where did you get the idea that Christians end up in Hell? As to wondering about others, that is not our business. Only God knows who is a true Christian and who is not, and genuine Christians DO NOT end up in Hell.

I have witnessed and experienced the hand of God here. I will agree that we, online or off, are still living in a fallen world, thus subject to His, the adversarys', influence. However, we have the mighty hand of God as our refuge as we walk through the valley of shadows. Praise be to God for His ongoing intervention.

You will have to forgive me, But those adopted by God born into his family. And sealed by his spirit will not go to hell

If you think they can, You do not understand the gospel. Or God

Do not you know that Satan can go back and forth between Heaven and Earth. Why? Because He need permission of God to tempt you or me or any other Christians on earth, therefore he needs to present himself in front of God who is in Heaven. I agree that Satan do no belong to heaven just as human beings will not belong to hell endlessly since we know that there will be a day of Judgement when hell itself will be cast into the lake of fire.

Satan doesn't need permission from God to tempt us. This was one instance with Job where he went to God.

I think this is a good time to go be at His feet. My Lord deserves my focus, not the evil one. I pray you find peace in the great I Am. Our security lies in Christ, not in the schemes of the one chasing His own tail of evil.

I might be not understanding a few things in the gospel but I see that you just want to imagine that everyone is going to heaven as this is the most outrageous lies of the devil and it is done subtlety so Christian won't do research about this matter. This is enough for the devil to drag most of us down when we die. Big and terrifying surprises are waiting for them when they realise that they are not in heaven. Huuuhhh! Open your eyes and start walking - asking the Lord to show you the truth about Christians going to hell in huge numbers.

Excuse me! I stated my opinion backed by the word but hey have it way but someone who repents and turns from sin and is covered under His precious blood WILL NOT BE FOUND ....EVER... IN HELL!
God alone sees every heart,do not THINK TO DIMINISH HIS POWER!. He knows EVERY motivation. I will no longer engage with you,YOU CANNOT TEACH ME THE WAYS OF GOD THAT GO AGAINST SCRIPTURE! If your faith is in youtube,you are in the wrong venue or even OTHERS TESTIMONIES!

Job was a human being, are you different species? If He needed permission for Job, He needs it for all other human beings.
