What are the adjectives for the following people? ?
I am a Muslim and we have adjectives in our native language for those people who will go to hell and heaven. What are the nouns or adjectives in English for the ones who deserve hell and heaven.

Heaven-bound : the saved, the elect, the saints, the believers, the blessed, the righteous.
Hell-bound: the damned; the cursed; the unbelievers; the sinners; the unrighteous.
It is an "must believe" of Christianity that all people are sinners and deserve Hell; but that Jesus Christ took our sin upon Himself and suffered torture and death to save us from Hell. The big break between Christian churches is whether accepting Christ's sacrifice and having faith that God will allow us to use our faith as a passport into Heaven, or if we must also express our gratitude to Christ by penitent prayers and doing good works in His Name while we are alive.
A smaller but still contentious break is called "predestination": that God has chosen only some believers to go to heaven (the elect) and everyone else is damned to Hell.
I understand that asking in the "Religion" section is like facing🔥. Hot tempers there. See what your library has about religious beliefs in "English" countries.

Well those gong to Hell will be Damned, as in damned to Hell.
Those going to Heaven are the Saved.

Our Bible says all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God none are righteous no not one. That means that everybody deserves death and hell but because the grace of God is demonstrated through Jesus Christ people have a chance to repent of doing what is bad and turn wholeheartedly to serving almighty God and those people get to go with God to eternal life. we simply call that those who are saved and those who are not saved
