Of course other people believing or not believing in God can be good people and do good things, help the needy or homeless or help somebody change a flat tire.
I am not judging anybody all I am saying is in order to be saved is to believe in Jesus Christ, that He died for our sins.
There are Christians that are not the best people but still believe in Christ and are saved. It is all about Christ and not about how good we can be.
