How do I go to Hell?
So what does a person have to do to go to hell? Well the short answer is nothing. You see we are all born sinners and have no hope of getting to heaven. I do believe that when babies, young children, and mentally handy capped people die, they go to heaven. There comes a point in every persons life where they understand their own consciousness, morality, and God. They have a subconscious idea that God exists by simply observing the world around them; Romans 1:20. At this point a person is now damned to hell. Hell is waiting for pretty much everyone. We do nothing to earn hell, it is the end result of our sin. People will say, "yeah but I'm a pretty good person and only murders and thieves go to hell." 1 John 3:15 says: Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.
The bible condemns such heresies. Just one bad thought will get a person sent to hell. No matter how hard we try, we can not stop sinning! To think that you are not going to hell just because you haven't committed a heinous crime is unbiblical.
Romans 3:23- For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.
We are all sinners. Wouldn't people who are helpless to stop something horrible, need someone to save them? Because of sin, we all need a savior. Have you ever heard of Jesus Christ being referred to as the savior. That is because he is the savior of humanity. He is the only one who can save humanity from an eternity in hell. He is the only way.
John 14:6- Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Jesus Christ came to earth as God in the flesh, with a singular mission of saving all
mankind from hell. He was tortured, went to the cross, and paid the sin debt of the entire world. He died on the cross, was buried, and rose from the dead, as payment for everyone's sins. Just one sin can get a person cast into hell. Jesus paid for all of our sins. All you have to do to receive eternal life, is believe that Jesus Christ died for your sins. That is called faith. Faith in Jesus Christ is what get's people to heaven.
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
Grace is a free gift from God. The gift is eternal life. We do nothing to earn it, we simply put our faith in Jesus. No amount of good works can ever get anyone saved. People will say "I am a good person, I go to church, pay my tithes, I am good to my family and community." Those things are all well and good, but they have no power to save. None of those things can save someone from hell. They can not wash away sin. We must be washed clean of all our sins before we can enter into heaven. Only the blood of Jesus Christ can wash away our sins.
Matthew 26:28- For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
Hebrews 9:22- And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.
Only the blood of Christ can wash away peoples sins. It can never be by doing good deeds or following religious principles. Neither of these things can take away a persons sins. God can not permit one single sin into heaven, it would corrupt the whole place. Heaven is a place of sinless perfection.
What if a person chooses to reject Jesus Christ? What if they think they can get to heaven on their own? These people will ALL go to hell. The people who add things to salvation will also go to hell. Their is no changed life or evidence of salvation, once a person gets saved. You can keep living in sin if you choose. God gives us that option. He then has the right to discipline his child. You do not have to go to church, get baptized, pray, or give tithes to get saved. You can add nothing to God's perfect gift of salvation. The people who say that you can lose your salvation are unbiblical. Once you are saved, you are always saved.
John 10:28- And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
God gives unto all that believe eternal life, not temporary life. The moment you believe Christ died for your sins, you have everlasting life. In conclusion, the scriptures are clear that all people who reject God's plan of salvation (Faith is Jesus Christ) are going to hell, no questions asked. We do not have to do anything to earn or deserve hell. We are condemned already.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
I hope you enjoyed this article. If you are not a Christian, I invite you to get saved now. Tomorrow may be to late. To get saved all you have to do, is admit that you are a sinner and that Jesus Christ died for your sins. The only way to take away sins is with the pure shed blood of Jesus Christ. Good works can not take away sins. If they could, then Jesus Christ died in vain. Jesus died, was buried, and rose from the dead as payment for all sins. Once you believe that, you are saved forever. You did nothing to earn it and you can do nothing to lose it.
I Corinthians 15
1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
