But blaming them is just being a dick.

J/K, that was a good point too.

You could do this by also believing that those in hell are only in hell to begin with as a consequence of their own free will decisions.

That depends on what criteria for entry into hell you're talking about.

Evangelical Christians believe that if you simply don't believe that Jesus died for your sins, you're going to hell.

Many christians believe that. Those of us who are not christians simply do not care . . . lol.

Some religions have rules & dogmas you must adhere to, as well as being a kind/decent
person. Those are what I call false religions.

True religion is about being yourself, but being kind & loving.
Being natural & still, but not being inactive.
Being at peace, and enjoying the natural world.

You say "simply" as if such a perceived offense is trivial. On the contrary, Evangelicals believe that the non-belief in Jesus is a moral failure worthy of the gravest possible consequences.

If heaven and hell existed, there would be many, many ways to believe in hell yet still enjoy the reward of heaven. The two beliefs, defined in a particular way, may be contradictory, true; but for the vast majority of people who believe in such things there is no actual contradicton there at all.

There are many people who are not evangelical who believe such
absurdity (to put it mildly). Catholics for one type.

This goes back to what I was saying above about false religions & dogmas.
Believe that faith in Jesus is more important than being good is a dogma.
Believing that belief in Jesus while doing bad things is crap.
