Self-professing, non-Christian, and non-Disciple

Every week, I meet with a friend who is a self-professing, non-Christian, and non-disciple of Jesus (note: I would love ideas on how to say that in a positive way). At the end of our last conversation, I asked, “How many Christians do you think are going to be in hell?” He immediately responded, “All of them!” I was caught a bit off guard by his emphatic response; so I inquired as to why he thought all Christians would go to hell. He thoughtfully answered, “Unless they repent of their sin, they won’t access heaven.” After pausing for a few seconds, he finished, “right?” I told him that we would talk more on this next week over breakfast (we were standing outside in the pouring rain). He went on to say, “Unfortunately, all of these people think they are going to heaven.”

Is it possible that a self-professing, non-Christian, and non-disciple of Jesus understands more about the repentance that leads to redemption than most self-professing Christians?

I can’t wait for our breakfast conversation this week.
