Make no mistake: I view Jehovah’s Witnesses and Mormons as cults and think that their followers are not saved. And religions like Islam are false. But think about how much closer they are to authentic Christianity than theologically liberal “Christians.”
Islam believes that Jesus was born of a virgin. They say the word of God can’t be corrupted. Mormons and JW’s will speak very highly of the accuracy and inspiration of the Bible. They believe that Jesus performed miracles. All those groups tend to be pro-life and pro-real marriage. Mormons will tell you that Jesus is the only way to salvation. And on and on.
Most theologically liberal “Christians” believe none of those things. They are so far removed from the truth of Christianity that they make cults and false religions look downright orthodox.
Again, those who die in the belief systems of cults and non-Christian religions will go to Hell. I am just pointing out how theologically liberal “Christianity” is even farther removed from the truth than they are. What makes it especially evil is that it pretends to be the real thing.
Run, don’t walk, from theologically liberal “Christians.”
2 Corinthians 11:13-15 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.

Sorry, there is no Hell and brimstone.
I didn’t say anything about brimstone, but there is a Hell. Jesus said so.
When I was in college it was not uncommon to find the following written on desks or tables.
“God is dead.” signed Smith.
“Smith is dead.” signed God.”
You have to consider the credibility of the author.
I will go with Jesus any day.
