Do only really bad people go to hell??
Seriously, I can't tell you how many times I've heard the whole, "I'm a good person, I don't steal, or cheat on my wife or blah blah blah" or "I've never murdered anyone"
It makes me think of something one of my friends said when an employee of his wanted kudos for showing up to work on time and for doing certain tasks that are a part of his job description. (both are guys)
He said "so, what do you want nancy - you get a paycheck every two weeks for that! You sound like one of those people on Maury Povich who says "I take care of MY KIDS, I pay MY BILLS" - ----you're SUPPOSED to do those things!!!"
All joking aside though, God is not mocked, and he knows every detail of every person's deeds....and it starts in the thought life as Jesus made clear "You have heard it said "Thou shalt not commit adultery" but I say to you whoever looks upon a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart."
Friends, God does not judge on a curve, he has set the bar.
Yes, ONE and only one sin against a HOLY God will send you to hell.
Why? Because the punishment for the crime is in direct proportion to the one offended by your crime.
Example: If you step on a thousand ants......no one will blink an eye.
If you are involved in dog fighting circuts,...or even just abuse a dog or cat, you're going to have to pay a fine.
If you kill a person, you get the death penalty.
If you sin against a HOLY God -(HIS value is INFINITELY more than any human being you could sin against).....therefore the punishment is infinite.
It is written that if you've broken one, you may as well have broken them all, and you will pay the just penalty for your sin....God will not let you go.
Except that someone pay your debt to Him FOR you.
God died on the cross 2010 years ago - to save you from his own just wrath against you.
Repent and trust in what Christ Jesus has accomplished, and you will be saved. Hide yourself from the gavel, it's a comin
To Christ Jesus be the glory in HIs church.
