What sins may cause you to go to hell?
I have very aware of the shocking title, do not leave or scroll off just yet. I got something to say unto thee ( Why I had to go King James here? I don't know). However, I must address the point of sin. This is an uncomfortable subject for many. Please don't be afraid of sin, don't run away from it, Just face it.
People think that their sins will lead them straight to hell, therefore there stay away from the King and Judge, the almighty God. While this is true, I am inviting you to see a deeper truth.
I am not a new ager advocating we are awesome, we are good. No! Just the opposite, we have the potential to be good, but deep down we are sinful and nasty because of sin.
With that being said, the satans use that guilt from sin, to keep people in the world away from God. Some even already accepted the idea that they are going to hell without really knowing "what the hell " look like. While dying in sin is promised to send you to hell. " If you live by the flesh, you will die.
To get back to the subject and daring title of this article, we will dive into John 3:16-18.
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son".
Before, we attempt to tackle this monster piece here, allow me to draw your attention to the word " Condemn" " Condemnation: judged, or fate has been decided and sealed".
Please, take a deep breath and gather yourself, wild ride on ahead. Buckle up!
God, sent His son to die for the Jews? Nope, Gentiles? His servants? No! NO! No!
For whoever, it's an open house. All the promises of God are conditional though, just believe, then, you shall not die but have Eternal Life. ( read that again)
Jesus did not come to condemn the world. Why would we speak of judgment if we did not do anything bad? God is aware that we are sinners and that's why Jesus came. Sin is no longer the problem here. The main issue is FAITH. Verse 18: If you have faith in Jesus, you are not condemned. However, anyone who does not believe including God's own people, the Jews, already seals their fate to eternal damnation. Fire of Hell.
In a nutshell, people are not going to hell because they have sinned, because they have killed, lied, or committed adultery. For David, Abraham Moses, and Other men of God have stumbled. They sure ain't going to the lake of fire. God is aware of the sinful nature and Jesus proposed to be the replacement for that. Once you believe in Jesus, he takes your sin on the cross. Where Kerby how can that be? Jesus died 2000 years ago. I will have you know that God is outside of time and the blood of Jesus knows no bound. Try and believe now and that blood will remove any condemnation over your life. Whoever does not believe Jesus was sent from God will die and be sent to hell because they have not believed in the only Son of God. I am sure that I have reiterated and justified my title in this last paragraph.
Behold, I have laid In Zion a stumbling block, whoever does not believe in Him will be put to shame. So it comes down to this. Believe in Jesus and follow his commands, regardless of your past sin, eternal life will be your reward, doubt and reject Jesus and you're on the highway to hell. It is then, not a question of sin, but of faith to determine your ultimate destination, you pick. HEAVEN or HELL?
