According to your scenario, Bob is not going to heaven. He's going to hell. He has rejected God (Romans 1:18-24).

Roger *might* be going to heaven depending on an addition piece information not there - does he think that any part of his "helping others" or "follow the teachings of Christ" are NECESSARY to get him into heaven. If he believes that they are necessary, he's not getting in (Matthew 7:21-23; Ephesian 2:8-9). If he believes that they are not necessary but are a result of salvation (Eph. 2:10) that He does in appreciation of the free gift of salvation (2 Cor. 5:9), then he's a true disciple of Christ and will spend eternity in heaven.
Roger believes only what the bible says. Nothing more or less.

John 3:36 The one who believes in the Son has eternal life. The one who rejects the Son will not see life, but God’s wrath remains on him.

So you admit that Roger has earned consideration, while Bob, in rejecting Christ, has not.
