A spin off question that got me thinking. I remember listening to a sermon about living for Jesus. We were told we have to believe and do his work if not, and I quote the good man "you will go to a place that isn't very cool"
I have heard several of these types of comments and sermons before. In the end, don't you live by the same rules as non - Christians regarding what send you to hell?
If we (Christians) don't live by Jesus we are going to a hot bed and I have been told that many times in my life.

I've never been told that by a priest or other religious person in our church, but I was told that by my uncle who was way too over zealous in talking about his beliefs. Actually I went to their youth group once (this was back when I was 16 or so) and all they talked about was how we would all go to hell unless we changed our ways. Well this is a group of young Christians that were active in the church and in Bible studies, etc. Weren't they living good enough lives for God? Why all the threats of going to hell? I never understood that and it totally turned me off (not that I was going to convert to their church anyway). The youth group director had these kids so scared to death that a few had nightmares. We were shown a movie about going to hell and it was beyond scary. I'd rather focus on what we should do right in our lives to get to Heaven than all the things we can to wrong and end up in hell.
