There’s a misconception about God sending people to hell. God doesn’t send people to hell. Our unbelief sends us to hell.

God told Adam not eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Adam disobeyed God and brought sin into the earth. Since we’re all byproducts of Adam, when he disobeyed God and became sinful, we all were born sinful. This sin separated us from God. God loved us enough to implement a plan to redeem us back to Himself. That implementation came through Jesus. Jesus sacrificed Himself to pay the price for all past, present, and future sins. We couldn’t do it on our own, but Jesus did it for us. Our belief in what Jesus accomplished for us awards us access to eternal life with God.

For those who choose not to believe and accept Jesus’ payment for sin, there are consequences. The price for sin still has to be paid. The payment for sin is death (Rom 6:23). Since they’re not willing to accept the payment of Jesus’ blood, they will ultimately have to pay for sin with their own blood. It’s not God sending them to hell, they sent themselves to hell because of unbelief.

It has nothing to do with our behavior or performance. It has everything to do with our belief. Believe in Jesus and receive His payment for all sin.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
