That's right, you really can't. It's an individual choice. Google an essay called "The Thermodynamics of Hell" for one of my favorite little essays on religion.

Thanks for the read.

But on topic, you don't go to hell because of how you worship, as long as you worship/follow what your religion teaches. And who knows if you have to do a certain thing to go to hell. That's my belief although they sort of contradict each other.

Also, Jews don't believe in hell and Catholics believe in purgatory.

Personally, I don't believe in a hell.

They're parallel explanation for something that honestly, no one CAN, I mean CAN explain/prove. I'd wager a lot of dough none are correct

I think you're better off emphasizing NO ONE.

you have to decide if you are actually going to follow all doctrines of the religion or just say you are a part of it.

It all depends what you want out of religion, though I'd say no matter what, don't convert to Islam.

Was there any point in that? People actually believe in that, Christianity is just as far-fetched to me.

And you can't.

Agreed. The belief that such a loving, strong, powerful "God" would let you go to Hell for no reason? If God really loved everyone, "Hell" wouldn't be in the Bible. If your argument is that "Satan" is fighting with "God" for control over whether you go to "Hell" or not, couldn't this all-powerful "God" just take you into Heaven?

Religion is based on faith, and solely faith. You can not prove anything, and that is mainly what makes religion so unique.

i understand you all are saying "there's no proof" or "individual choice".. or "once i die ill know for sure."

and you all are correct.

but... im still confused

u know how a muslim would say that all christian (or others other than muslim) will go to hell. or how christian would say that muslim or other religion will go to hell..

now how do u prove that? there's no proof.
how can i make this so called "individual choice" when no one can't prove it.
once i die ill know for sure all right.. but what if my religion isn't the true/right one.. then ill go to hell..

what should i do? wait for a sign from god?

YOu all understand what im saying? it's hard to explain..
