Will people go to hell because of what they do?

Someone claimed, “You also can’t say a group is going to hell because of their customs and practices.”

In fact, God said it. God said the whole world is accountable to Him (Romans 3:19). God said all have sinned (Romans 3:23). Everyone who rejects Christ and does not accept His words will be judged (John 12:48). God will judge the sexually immoral (Hebrews 13:4). The Lord will come to judge the ungodly and those who have spoken against him (Jude 1:14-15). God will judge us according to what we have done (Revelation 20:11-15). We are told, “Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God” (1 Corinthians 6:9-10). Those who are cowardly, unbelieving, vile, murderers, sexually immoral, and those who practice magic arts, idolaters and liars will suffer the second death (Revelation 21:8).

So, God said people who do certain things will be judged and will not inherit the kingdom of God and will suffer the second death. You are free to believe Him or not. So yes, there are plenty of people who are “going to hell because of their customs and practices.”
