    well i am sure that there are a lot of people who think like that. To be honest I think that is a good question. But why would you join them? Wouldn't you rather have them join you? Either you're both in Hell or both in Heaven, can be a toss up but man you should fight for it, for yourself and them! Don't listen to the other guys who say "there is no Heaven or Hell" or any garbage like that. Just if you're so worried about it, id say pray and talk to them! May sound cheesy but you'll see that over time it will work out. And don't let anything bring you down from trying to help them!

    If I think any of my loved ones would end up in Hell, I would pray to God for strength and anointing of Holy Spirit so that I can share with my God's love so that they too will accept Jesus into their live and be given a chance at eternal life in Heaven.

    Why should I join them, when they can join me in heaven?

    Tough choice. Since it's our prupose in life to teach other people of God's word and our family would be most important to us. It'd be a definate black mark on our record if we just let them end up down there without a fight. But we can't honestly force every single person to listen or give God a chance. But I'd say no. I love them but if I ended up in there that means I'll be the reason a lot more people get sent to hell.

    Nobody knows who will end up in what (heaven, hell, purgatory, nirvana, other earth, dust, nothingness...)! Nobody has any knowledge about those imaginary places or states of minds! Why, how, when, where... are even more difficult to tell.

    In our daily life, most people think that their lives would end up in heaven (happy), while other people deserve hell (miserable). If they are somewhat knowledgeable, they try to convince others to follow them; if they are deprived thereof, they criticize or ridicule others. And this is the condition of our miserable earth today!

    God wants all mankind to be His noble and eternal children, He successcively sends His Messengers here to teach us about this most important matter. Let us turn to the Divine Messenger of our time to get the true knowledge concerning God, His divine purpose and our high destiny. If we refuse to seek for Him, the harm would only be for our own selves. I dare not call anybody (including my children) to follow me, I just humbly propose that people should follow the Messenger of God.

    I don't think they would, since heaven is supposed to be the almighty goal in life's end where God takes in His children that He loves which is all, and then sends the one that He loves but wasn't Acceptable to hell.

    Okay, Hell is a place of sadness, depression, hate, and total darkness. Not to mention a pool of volcanic fire and brimstone, where you are burned alive forever and ever. Not to be funny at all, but maybe you won't be seeing your family, or even looking for them at anytime. :O(

    No I would not prefer to join them, instead I will continue to pray for their for salvation.

    Everyone has to stand before God by themselves. We would not stand as a

    (love one) unit.

    Don't worry there is no such thing as hell, just like there is no heaven. When you die, you don't go anywhere, you die. It's done, no more. Why do people allow religion to rob their common sense? I mean, do you really believe in the kingdom of heaven on some crazy cloud with pearly gates?

    I do not have to worry about this question because so far in my life I have never seen anyone who qualifies for hell.

    But to answer you, if I found my family there, then I would most surely join them.
