Romans 6:10 The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God.

Another misconception in the body of Christ is going to hell because of sin. There are so many people who still believe that if people are “living in sin” prior to death, they’re going to hell. What most people mean by this is if people are living together unmarried, doing drugs or alcohol, or doing unholy things and don’t confess their sins and/or change their behavior prior to death, they’re going to hell.

People don’t go to hell because of sin. People go to hell because they reject the payment of sin. Jesus paid for our past, present, and future sins with His blood (Rom. 6:10). If we believe that Jesus is the Son of God Who paid for our sins, we WILL NOT go to hell (Rom. 3:22; Rom. 10:9).

For those who don’t believe in Jesus and His payment, those are the ones who are technically “living in sin.” Our acts of righteousness cannot put us in heaven and our acts of unrighteousness cannot put us in hell. Our good conduct should be in appreciation towards all that Jesus has done for us, but if it’s not, the quality of our life will suffer, but we won’t go to hell.
