Idk I've just always been curious about it. To me, a loving God would never let his children suffer such a torture. But that's just my opinion, I'm genuinely curious about this, so please be nice

depends on whose "ministry" you listen to. I've found teachers who interpret sc<x>ripture vastly opposing ways --- John Mcarthur says if you sin/eg: fornicate, you aren't saved/cannot inherit the kingdom, but Aaron Budjen counters him doctrinally directly addressing what salvation IS, the Spirit of God being restored to our dead spirit, & no sin can kill that life within us, no matter how big it is. we are secure after recieving the breath of life / resurrection which is invisible & internal. focusing on self-efforts to get rid of secret sin only perpetuates the temptations we hide in our hearts. man judges us by behavior, God judges whether we trust Him to rescue us cuz we're helpless to overcome its power on our own!!! Look at St Paul's dilemna in Romans 7 of sin's sly seduction. that's why He sent His Son Who did it for us -- heroically.

True Christians don't go to hell

Best Answer

Maybe, but a normal human will "sin"

Best Answer

A true Christian was saved from going to hell over sin the minute Jesus died on the cross. Yes, humans sin but we can be forgiven of our sin.

Oh look, a can of worms. Pfffft. Still fresh.

Because fear of an afterlife is a great way for people to control the actions of others. Their comes a point where a person is willing to die rather then to submit-you can't control that person. BUT if you can convince that person hell awaits unless A B and C are followed and the church obeyed, you can control. Religion plays on our biggest fear, dying, and our naturally inquisitive nature and imagination that has created thousands upon thousands of gods throughout time.

The explanation that I've heard is that if someone sins, it is of their own free will, and therefore they are choosing of their own free will to go to hell.

Best Answer

He cannot condone sin especially in His kingdom. He is pure, perfect, and flawless. Christians and non-Christians are however sinful. For that reason, they cannot see and join God, who never does wrong and makes any mistakes. <br />
