The only people who will end up in hell are those who reject the only way of avoiding hell that there is - the way God made possible, so that hell-deserving sinners could be pardoned and so not have to suffer punishment for their sins. But here are two quotes from one man which, when put together, sums that up rather nicely. No, they're not from the Bible...
"God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There can be no such thing... There are only two kinds of people in the end – those who say to God, ‘Thy will be done’ and those to whom God says, ‘Thy will be done’." [C. S. Lewis in Mere Christianity]
Those who seek to live apart from God desire their will to be done, and that will be granted for all eternity, because they did not desire God's will - no matter how 'good' they might have appeared to others. Apparent goodness is not the yardstick but desiring to do God's will, so that any good we do is for His glory and not our salvation.

God never does that job. There is no hell or heaven for human beings. Human beings experience both hell and heaven when they live on this earth.
God doesn't watch each and every human being at the same time and cannot live with each and everyone to guide them. These works are done by the spirits. God had created different kinds of spirits for various purposes. He had made the spirits to watch, guide and determine the destiny of the human beings from their daily activities, talks and thoughts too. Your past determines your present and your present determines your future. God has given freewill to all creatures including human beings. According to this, all human beings have all right to live a life as they wish. But if it happens to be bad and hurts someone, they have to face the consequences. These consequences are created by spirits. It's a natural system. After death no one lives in any form. Heaven and hell are only for spirits, not for human beings. God is a mystery even to the spirits. Spirits are not eternal beings. Spirits are separate elements. A human being doesn't have a spiritual body. A human being during his/her lifetime is living with many spirits which have joined one by one since birth. They are knowledge, skills, feelings, emotions, interests and everything. Even thoughts are not your own. For example, when you want to take a decision on a subject, one after another the spirits think and you just listen, choose or reject the ideas which they transmit to your mind through your brain in the form of thoughts. Brain is just a media to connect the spirits to your mind. A mind is just a computer's mind. After the destruction of a computer completely you will not get it's mind. The same is the case with the human beings. Soul is nothing but an energy needed for the functionality of a body. It is not a spirit or anything else. After death all spirits which accompanied a person quit and go to different places searching new bodies. No one lives in any form after death. All human beings are just robots made of flesh and bones and toys of the spirits for their games.

Jesus said about people in Noah’s day. They were eating and drinking, men marrying and women being given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark; and they took no note until the flood came and swept them all away. Matthew 24:38, 39
What was wrong was their preoccupation with everything else to the exclusion of listening to God when he spoke through his servant Noah, a preacher of righteousness. Because they did not listen, when the Flood came it swept them all away into destruction.
Many of those who died in the Flood no doubt considered themselves nice people, not being involved in the violence that filled society in those days. But just being nice did not save them.
By their apathy they condoned the evil of their day. The crucial thing was that they did not run to God; they did not listen when God’s servant spoke. So they did not take the proper steps for survival.

God sends no-one to Hell but those who freely choose to go there, and demonstrate their choice by the way they live their lives.

No, never. But don't flatter yourself that you're good if you remain in your sins.

No. Because God is love.
The Bible does not teach the religious lies of immortal soul and eternal torment in hell.Source(s): Bible

Yes if you don't believe in God even if you were a good person you'll go to hell.

Christians believe that the ultimate standard for good is so high that no man can be called good. But if we are the ones who define and decide what is "good", then yes I think so. If someone benefits society, they are good (of course with everything there are variations and complexities). Just because someone happens to lack confidence that Jesus resurrected, God is going to send them to Hell. To me, I think that amounts to good people going to Hell.

God sends no one anywhere. You and only you have the power to determine your ultimate destination. In the final judgement, your life testifies against you and Jesus pardons you by grace through faith.
