So you admit that Roger has earned consideration, while Bob, in rejecting Christ, has not.
There is no "earning." You didn't give enough information about Roger to see if he believes what God says is necessary to believe for eternal life. You don't want Matthew 7:21-23 to happen to you. You don't want Christ to look at you like the people in John 2 and conclude in 2:22 that they didn't have the right belief for salvation.
