Do most Christians end up in Hell?


We know the non-Christians end up in Hell (99.9% of the time)

but what do you think about Christians ending up there?

Tonight at Mass our wonderful holy priest said that, as St. Alphonse said, all that worrying about going to hell or others going to hell does is have a chilling effect on our confidence in God’s mercy, so I’m not going to think about it.

No, we don't know that. We do know there's a lot of people in hell. And we also know we're damned (Bad choice in words? Of course, but none-the-less) Damned lucky to be Catholic--although it's no guarantee of heaven, being Catholic is a big fat leg up. But we can always have hope for non-Catholics. If some pagan lived a moral life they could possibly be in heaven, too. ETA: can't vote as it is a sin against either hope or else a sin of presumption for me to do so.
This is such a horrible (not to mention unanswerable) question. Just pray and remember that even non-believers still have a God that loves them and desires their salvation.
I think we should trust in the mercy of God and pray for the eternal repose of those who are dead.

It's always important not just to consider what the saints said, but why they said it.

St. Alphonsus is among many who speak of the fewness of the saved, but the reason is to show how we have to make a serious effort and not just sit back and say, "I'm Catholic, so I'm good."

Every soul is given plenty of graces to be saved. Many refuse these graces. Some refuse them to the point of final impenitence.

That could be us.

Thinking of this should motivate us, therefore, to treasure the graces we have received, try never to refuse any, beg God to send many, and quickly stir up sorry when we have. 

The saints say such things to move us to man-up, not to then sit in judgement of others thinking ourselves just, and wondering how many others will not make it : "Wherefore he that thinketh himself to stand, let him take heed lest he fall." (1 Cor 10.12)

Thus, I will not be voting.
I think it's true since a lot of Christians are haters, I've been to their service and I'm sorry to say this they hate Catholics they always say that we are "idolaters", if we are idolaters they are down right "haters".
I'm really sorry if I've sinned because of my last post but... I'm just saying the truth
I remember padre pio asked for his fellow monks to pray for the soul of the king of england in his last few days, he wasn't catholic. Think theres more hope for non-catholics than your making out.
