"If you don't accept Jesus you go to hell and that's that."?

Update:

    In The Eyes Of GOD, those are not valid excuses. GOD Will Judge them with the level of Light that was known to them. Consciences and Creation will bear witness against those who have never heard of Yeshua/Jesus, GOD or anything related to GOD. Psalm 19 (Amplified Bible) 1THE HEAVENS declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows and proclaims His handiwork. Psalm 97 (Amplified Bible)

    6The heavens declare His righteousness, and all the peoples see His glory.

    Romans 1 (Amplified Bible)

    20For ever since the creation of the world His invisible nature and attributes, that is, His eternal power and divinity, have been made intelligible and clearly discernible in and through the things that have been made (His handiworks). So [men] are without excuse [altogether without any defense or justification], +++" What is our conscience? (CCC 1776-1779)

    There are multiple ways of expressing the reality of the conscience. We will give a few to help understand. It is the voice of God inside of man. It is an interior law imprinted in our minds. It is a judgment of reason in which a person recognizes an act to be morally good or bad; this judgment can apply to past, present or future acts. The conscience has three actions: First, it is able to recognize what we have done. Second, it judges what we must do or must not do. Third, it judges what we have done as evil or good.

    There are some fundamental truths about our conscience. Our conscience does not decide what is good and evil, but instead, it already knows good and evil, and it judges our actions according to this knowledge. All men have this knowledge of basic moral principles (called synderesis). This is why John Paul II and Vatican II call it the “voice of God” inside of us (Dominum et vivificantem 43 and Guadium et Spes 16). This ability makes us morally responsible for our actions. It is also what gives us our profound dignity. We have the ability to choose the good, thereby forming our own destiny. We participate in getting ourselves to Heaven and in the reward we will one day enjoy there; it is not simply determined for us. Again, this participation and self-determination is what makes us unique and chosen among creatures.

    What are our responsibilities regarding our consciences? (CCC 1780-1794)

    Our primary duty is to form and educate our conscience. A well-formed conscience is truthful and righteous; it makes judgments according to reason and in favor of the true good. We have true freedom when our conscience is educated and has knowledge enough to choose rightly. (See What did Jesus mean when He said “the truth will set you free”?) We form our consciences through education, prayer, and putting our faith into practice. When we are presented with difficult situations, in which a clear path is not obvious to us, we have the responsibility to diligently seek what is right and good. In our quest, we will be assisted with the graces of the Holy Spirit; we can be aided by the example and advice of others; and we will be guided by the teachings of the Church.

    Should we always act according to our conscience? (CCC 1786-1789)

    Yes. Man should always act in accordance with his conscience. If he were to act against it, he would condemn himself. However, this judgment of conscience can be in conformity with reason and divine law or it can be erroneous and against them. This is why it is so important to form our consciences well.

    If we are supposed to always follow our conscience, what happens if our conscience is uninformed and we make a bad choice? Are we morally responsible? (CCC 1790-1794)

    There are certainly instances in which our consciences, through ignorance, have made bad judgments. A person is responsible and culpable when he "takes little trouble to find out what is true and good, or when conscience is by degrees almost blinded through the habit of committing sin" (Gaudium et Spes 16). In others words, we are responsible for our errors when we have been lazy or negligent in seeking the truth. In terms of being blinded by sin, we are all witness to the seeming lack of conscience of those who have grown accustomed to a life of sin. Each sinful act suppresses our conscience. As we continue to sin, we become more accustomed to drowning out its voice. After time, it loses its strength and seems to disappear. However, though beaten down, the conscience, by the mercy of God, will never be extinguished. With His grace, it is possible that one’s conscience may be illuminated and set aflame once again. This is why prayer for the conversion of hearts is so important and so powerful.

    Some contributing factors to ignorance of conscience are: an ignorance of Christ and his Gospel; bad examples given by others; being enslaved to our passions; believing that we, and not God, determine what is good and evil; a rejection of the Church's authority and teaching; and a lack of conversion and love.

    Thats why we have missions and missionaries. Maybe you could help out.

    Mat 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

    Mat 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, [even] unto the end of the world. Amen.

    read what paul wrote, everyone is without excuse because the creation is a testimony, the wrath of God against sin is a testimony. either Jesus Christ paid for your sins, or you yourself will. God is too righteous not to judge and condemn sin.

    You can also think about it like this:

    What about all the people who came BEFORE Jesus? This includes all the Native American tribes. What happens to them? Are they given a "free ride"? A "get-out-of-jail-free" card?

    Romans 1:20, ''For since the creation of the world His [Christ's] invisible attributes are clearly seen,''

    ..... so that they are without excuse.

    Then God will judge that person by how he lived.

    Whatever the case may be, I'm sure God will be fair about it.

    Actually there is much more to it than that- simple answer is yes - but after accepting Jesus there is more- "Not all that say Lord, Lord, will enter, I will say I never knew you"

    Those people are judged by what's in their heart. It's in the book of Romans.
