    How to get into Heaven is one thing…

    But what must one do that would ensure 100% that one will go to Hell after one dies?

    Without harming anyone, of course

    Basically: what is the quickest and easiest way to guarantee damnation?

    By being born against one’s will, or non-will, in whatever environment, whatever conditions, whatever circumstances, with whatever genetics never asked for, with faulty programming never asked for, lack of power to self-control never asked for, ignorance never asked for, a vulnerable and gullible mind never asked for, etc. :)

    I don't believe in hell after one dies, but if you want to experience living in hell while still alive, there are a number of countries you can move to: Syria, Afghanistan, Central African Republic, etc, etc, etc.

    If you do not believe in Jesus sacrifice, you will go to hell.

    I do believe in Jesus's sacrifice, and I cannot undo that belief

    But say I really wanted to go to hell how could I go about it? - whilst still believing in Jesus's sacrifice??

    Maybe believing in Jesus's sacrifice would totally immunize such a Christian from going to Hell.

    Just walk right in but make sure you have your head screwed on right. While in the Abyss take care not to get mired in it, it never seems to end well for the Black Brothers and Sisters but it's ultimately up to you.

    Literally it is impossible. Metaphorically, have a frame of mind more limited than that which gave rise to our reality which is quickly inevitable. Then teach yourself that reality is inherently evil and another reality which is good but is forever coming but never arriving is the only good.

    Literalists mistake optimism as coming in the form of a guarantee. The Bible actually shows that optimism comes as a gift a person either has naturally or is a gift they have given to themselves without having the "right" or means to afford it.

    Hell was created for Satan, for the enemies of God, and for the wicked. There are seven deadly sins and they are: 1) Any sin against God's person. Exodus 32:33. 2) Abuse or neglect of a child. 3) Murder. 4) Rape. 5) Kidnapping. 6) Paying or taking a bribe. 7) False witness or swearing falsely by the name of God. Sins against God include blasphemy Leviticus 24:16, hatred of God Proverbs 8:36, and ticking him off Psalm 2:12. We all have to repent of our sin. This is a 4 step process. 1) Remorse. 2) Confession. 3) Restitution. 4) Change. The most important step is change. Those who don't repent are called "the guilty" Exodus 34:7.

    Refuse to repent and or ask forgiveness for the wrong you have done, and decide that you will hate God for all eternity, even in the presence of His eternal, all-embracing love.

    C. S. Lewis' book "The Great Divorce" is to me illuminating. For example, here's one way:

    “There have been men before … who got so interested in proving the existence of God that they came to care nothing for God himself… as if the good Lord had nothing to do but to exist. There have been some who were so preoccupied with spreading Christianity that they never gave a thought to Christ.”
    ― C.S. Lewis, The Great Divorce ''

    The Great Divorce Quotes by C.S. Lewis

    And here's where a "Christian" inhabitant in hell is making the choice to stay there

    Well, this is extremely interesting,’ said the Episcopal Ghost. ‘It’s a point of view. Certainly, it’s a point of view. In the meantime…’ ‘There is no meantime,’ replied the other. ‘All that is over. We are not playing now. I have been talking of the past (your past and mine) only in order that you may turn from it forever. One wrench and the tooth will be out. You can begin as if nothing had ever gone wrong. White as snow. It’s all true, you know. He is in me, for you, with that power. And—I have come a long journey to meet you. You have seen Hell: you are in sight of Heaven. Will you, even now, repent and believe?’ ‘I’m not sure that I’ve got the exact point you are trying to make,’ said the Ghost. ‘I am not trying to make any point,’ said the Spirit. ‘I am telling you to repent and believe.’ ‘But my dear boy, I believe already. We may not be perfectly agreed, but you have completely misjudged me if you do not realise that my religion is a very real and a very precious thing to me.’ ‘Very well,’ said the other, as if changing his plan. ‘Will you believe in me?’ ‘In what sense?’ ‘Will you come with me to the mountains? It will hurt at first, until your feet are hardened. Reality is harsh to the feet of shadows. But will you come?’ ‘Well, that is a plan. I am perfectly ready to consider it. Of course I should require some assurances…I should want a guarantee that you are taking me to a place where I shall find a wider sphere of usefulness—and scope for the talents that God has given me—and an atmosphere of free inquiry—in short, all that one means by civilisation and—er—the spiritual life.’ ‘No,’ said the other. ‘I can promise you none of these things. No sphere of usefulness: you are not needed there at all. No scope for your talents: only forgiveness for having perverted them. No atmosphere of inquiry, for I will bring you to the land not of questions but of answers, and you shall see the face of God.”

    How to get into heaven and out of prison and become free: Tap into the power inside of you that resurrects from the dead, lifting it up in the wilderness(solitude.) (And staying away from any religion or your own or any other humans teachings/doctrines.) It will literally destroy everything written below:

    It will cut the umbilical cord from an evil ‘god’ that controls you through various types of fear, emotion, burden, obedience, ignorance, lack of power to self control, accuses you of everything that you’re not responsible or accountable for while making you feel guilty and responsible, indebted to it.
