I would know someone has not accepted Christ when they mock the religion or they tell me that they don't believe in that. Those statements, combined with statements in the Bible, lead to the conclusion of Hell. However, that is not an irreversible situation. Also, it does not matter what one knows or doesn't know - it's not the person's choice. They have no say in who will or will not go to hell.
Well if the religion does not accept Christ, then yeah, followers of that religion are Hell bound as defined by the rules outlined in the Bible.
Catholics accept Jesus, so they still fit in the non Hell category, right? Mormons are the same case.
Being homosexual has no bearing on belief in Jesus. That's between the person and God and I don't see that listed in the 10 commandments.
