105 sure-fire ways to go to hell (according to the Bible)

In a previous post, I tried to find all of the ways that a person can get saved -- according to the Bible, anyway. There were more than 200 on that list. But as I looked it over, some of the ways seemed to be more about avoiding hell than obtaining heaven. So I thought I'd start a separate list on the biblical way to go to hell. That way you can decide where you want to go after you die and know (for sure) how to get there.

So here goes. I'll add to the list as I find more ways.

  1. Hang out with strange and foolish women.
    Keep thee from the strange woman ... Her house is the way to hell. 7:5-27

    For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil ... her steps take hold on hell.

    A foolish woman ... knoweth nothing. For she sitteth at the door of her house ... to call passengers who go right on their ways ... she saith to him, Stolen waters are sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant. But he knoweth not that the dead are there; and that her guests are in the depths of hell. Proverbs 9:13-18

  2. Hang on a tree.
    Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree. Galatians 3:13
  3. Offend the little ones.
    It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. Luke 17:2, Matthew 18:6, Mark 9:32
  4. Give yourself over to fornication and go after strange flesh.
    As Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. Jude 1:7
  5. Say long prayers.
    Beware of [those who] make long prayers: these shall receive greater damnation. Mark 12:38-40, Luke 20:46-47
  6. Defile the temple of God.
    If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy. 1 Corinthians 3:17
  7. Don't feed the hungry, give water to the thirsty, clothe the naked, or visit the sick or imprisoned.
    Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment. Matthew 25:41-46
  8. Don't be justified by Jesus's blood.
    Being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath. Romans 5:9

    Beware of [those who] walk in long robes, and love greetings in the markets, and the highest seats in the synagogues, and the chief rooms at feasts ... the same shall receive greater damnation. Luke 20:46-47, Mark 12:38-40
  11. Become a child of disobedience; walk in this world using the power of the prince of the air.
    In time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience. Ephesians 2:2
  12. Do something offensive to angels.

    By the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. Romans 5:18

    And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. Luke 21:34-36
  17. Reject Jesus (the cornerstone). Then the cornerstone will fall on you (or you'll fall on it) and smash you to pieces.

  26. Don't wear a wedding garment.

  32. Be the chaff that Jesus will burn.
    He [Jesus] that cometh after me [John the Baptist] is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire: Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.

  90. Turn from the holy commandment. (Eat your own vomit.)

For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance. -- Hebrews 6:4-6

Did you ever stop to think that Christianity can be the greatest enabler of sinners? There is no punishment for sinning as long as you repent. Sin, repent, sin, repent, (repeat as necessary).

The assumption apparently is that once you are saved you either never sin again, or if you do, it is OK because you are sorry. I wonder if that is the appeal for the vast majority of Christians? Think what society would be like if we treated our criminals that way: "Killed a fourth person? That is OK as long as you are sorry you did it."

If it was easy everyone would be there.

Yup, you would not want to make it easy for EVERYONE to get in, just the select, chosen, few.
