You're Going to Hell

As Christians, I think we often do the gospel a great disservice by indicating that doing x, y, or z will send you to hell.

The Bible doesn't teach that. Many unsaved people who have listened to Christians on the subject will say that they're going to hell because they practice such-and-such a sin. But that's not the way God operates.

God will not send you to hell because you masturbate.

God will not send you to hell because you have sex outside of marriage.

God will not send you to hell because you are homosexual.

God will not send you to hell because you are a murderer.

God will not send you to hell because you are a liar.

God will not send you to hell because you are a thief.

God will not send you to hell because you disobey your parents or are rebellious against other authority.

God sends people to hell because we are all sinful to the core, and we refuse God's gift of salvation. Focusing on the individual issues as what sends you to hell does no justice to the gospel.
