Am I Condemned to Hades for being Indian?

I have actually had well meaning people tell I am.

They rarely ask me what my Spiritual or Religious beliefs are or if they do, they ask AFTER having told me Indians/Native Americans are going to hades.

Never can they explain to me why the Indigenous Peoples of America are supposedly condemned by the Creator/God to an eternity of fire and brimstone--just what the collective sin or sin of race or culture is.

Once the statement of so called fact is made, the conversation goes something like this:

Me: Do we agree that there is one supreme being above all else in the universe?

They: Yes.

Me: Do we agree that according to the Bible, that being is a loving God?

They: Yes.

Me: Yet you are telling me that this loving God, created me for no other reason to watch me burn and suffer for an eternity? What kind of love is that?

The conversation generally ends at that point with the other person walking away, head hung down.
