Sigh the (something happened) ... Hell! list is getting riciously long, but I am not sure how to properly trim it so only basic and funny ones remain.

I would just remove the bullet points and leave only a handful of examples.

This isn't really a trope... considering this actually follows pretty closely to Biblical principles (Matthew 7:13-14 about the narrow path, Romans 3:23 and 6:23 about the penalty of sin). Contrary to a lot of media portrayals, there's no karma in Christianity, and it doesn't factor in to heaven/hell portrayals.

Debatable. Christianity states that ALL have sinned whether by their acts or just by being born with it, and the ONLY way to salvation is by accepting Jesus as your savior. Now, there can be lots of discussion about things like, say, the relevance of sinning after that acceptance, and the like, but within the belief system, it doesn't matter if you live on the straight and narrow if you don't accept Christ.

That being said, it IS in fact a trope because it's a common portrayal in media - despite not having a foundation in the mythology - that the slightest bad behavior gets you damned. See the examples on the main page.
