**Want to know the easiest way end up in hell? Always do those things that “feel good” or look attractive! No matter how much we want to deny it, sin feels good (at least for the moment). If it didn’t, we wouldn’t be tempted to sin.**

Yes, easy to sin, for some, easy to avoid.

The Gods of the Marketplace.

Rudyard Kipling figured it out a century ago.

Better to follow the Gods of the Copybook Headings. They will tend to keep you from the near occasions of sin.

Want to know another easy way to hell?

Strut when you avoid sin instead of thanking God for giving you something you could handle - and condemn those who fail instead of praying for them while recognizing they faced something which, for them, was the same as if God chose something for you that you couldn't handle.

The easiest way to end up in hell is to not accept Christ’s death on the cross as sufficient for your salvation through grace by faith, but rather think that there are other things (works/man made traditions/etc) you must also do to save yourself. When you reject His grace through the sacrifice on the cross, you subject yourself to be judged by the law at the Great White Throne, which no one can “pass” because that would require perfection. And the only person to ever walk this earth in perfection was Jesus.

Easiest way to hell? The Latin Vulgate says Christ was in hell, The New Jerusalem Bible says he was in Hades, The New American Bible says Christ was in the netherworld.

I’ll consult someone who follows the truth.
