If I sware to God, but then brake it? I don't think I ever had. I was just curious.
1) For future reference, don't swear by anything. Just let your "yes" mean "yes" and your "no" mean "no". (Matthew 5:34-37) There is, according to the Bible, only one "unforgivable sin" and you did not commit that sin so I wouldn't worry too much about it.
2) I've been a diligent student of the Bible for at least 10 years and I've never actually read anything in it that convinces me that hellfire even exists. When we die, our bodies go back into the ground, we go to sleep and our sins are atoned for at death. There is no need for eternal damnation and punishment after we die according to the Bible (Psalm 146:4; Ecclesiastes 9:5; John 11:11-14; Romans 6:23)
Just Try Your Best To Be A Good Person & Remember, We All Slip With Our Tongues (God Knows This; Don't Sweat It),
if you r a saved Christian you will not be going to hell for swearing.But you should not because the bible says so.Remember that God is love.He loved you so much that he gave his only son to be crucified for us so that we could again unite with god and have all the blessings in heaven and earth.I know that people don't like to believe in hell but you cannot get away from the truth.The bible is very clear about hell and so dont be a fool by not believing about it.so if you commit a sin Ask forgiveness from god and he will forgive u.Re member that jesus died for all our sins present and future.
It is best not to make a sware to God, anytime unless you fully intend to stick to it come "hell or high water" sorry for the pun.
God takes these things seriously, so if you intend to maybe break your word to Him, you'd best not do it at all.
One more thing about hell; it's an event not a place. And hell does not last thru out all eternity as some believe. I could not worship a tyrant of a God like that.
The Bible tells us that the wicked will be destroyed at the Lord's coming.
Well, the question wasn't whether that makes him/her a bad person, it was whether they'll go to hell. I think maybe, yes it may cause a trip to Hell. I'm an atheist, so it doesn't affect me (lol), but I'd say that if you swear to God, that pretty much constitutes an agreement that if you break the swear you will be punished. And God's favorite punishment is Hell ( :) ), so...
go through the repentance process. I just taught it to my 12 year olds in sunday school two weeks ago and I put it into an "abc" form so that they might remember it. it goes:
-(A)dmit you did wrong -(B)e sorry -(C)confess your sin -(D)don't do it again -(E)ndure to the end
forgiveness comes after we sincerely go through this process.
Hell doesn't exist, so no, you won't be going there. It isn't even a Biblical concept. Every single place you see 'hell' in a modern translation, it's a mistranslation rooted in Hellenic (hence the reason the place is called 'hell') influence throughout most of Christian history.
Hell is a concept, still, warmer than Fairbanks, perhaps! Seriously, whatever is our life, the sincerity of a regret can abolish the mistakes of a life. There is no eternal damnation, but we can make the road to Heavens longer or shorter.
Who are we to determine what God takes seriously or not? He knows the secrets of our hearts before we do ourselves. It's not even what we do, it's what we are, in the perspective of a destiny.
NO !!! that is the dumbest crap I have ever heard its dosent make you a bad person everyone dose it no matter if they like it or not it dosent make anyone or you a bad person
no. of course that's not the nicest thing to do but if you're concerned about it, then ask to be forgiven and God will forgive you. it's all in the bible.
And all this time I've been of the impression that hell was the Middle English name of the netherrealm...Learn something new everyday
No you will not go to hell if you go back on a promise, if you did then everyone in the world most likly woul be joining you...
If you're so upset about it, why not just say you'll try your best to do something instead of swearing to God?
No, simply revert to that "Ask and ye shall be forgiven..." loophole.
no god will forgive you whatever you do and will love you for ever
