Im not a teen, but someone told me about this website a few days ago and Ive found it to be a pretty amazing place - so well done:) I often feel I have questions but I honestly wouldn't know who to ask, is there an adult site like this?
My question is how bad does one have to be to go to gehenom? Is it only people who we see as really bad, or people like for example, a normal Beis Yaakov girl whose generally ok but still does bad things here and there - would they go to gehenom? How can we judge whats really bad?
Also is there anything specific that if one does wrong in olam hazeh, they'll go to gehenom for? Or can every sin be forgiven for if u do sincere teshuva?

The idea that someone goes either to heaven or hell exsclusively is a Christian idea. The truth is that all of us (with few excetions, as explained below) go to gehinnom for whatver sins we do, in order to cleanse us of those sins, after which we go to gan eden to enjoy the reward for our good deeds.
There are those who do not get gan eden - ain lahem chelek l'olam habah. A whole list of those - 22 of them in fact - are posted elsewhere on the site.

Shaarei Teshuva discusses the sins that keep one from having a portion in Olam Habah in detail, more then i've seen elsewhere.it also discusses many othe sins.

Anyupdates???? WHAT ARE THese 22 AVAIROt
If you do one of these 22 things you stay in hell or after you cleanse you float around like a dibbuk.
Also can you do tshuva for these things.
Also are we supposed to try and compare hell to something we can understand and use it as a deterent or is that like serving god only to get reward.
Lastly. If one does something and says I will repent is it true that you can't do tshuva for that action.

It becomes much more difficult to do teshuva for that aveira.
What the person did was essentially use teshuva in order to sin-so why should he be able to benefit from teshuva afterwards?
It's still possible, though-but it's very very difficult to do proper teshuva.

there is a gehenniom, of couse, but most descriptions are, as you said, mashalim. gehenniom, like gan eden, isnt physical, it's for the neshamah.
as for the aveiros which cause one to have no portion in olam habah (unless he does teshuvah, which is especially hard for such big things), i cAant find the full list here and I dont have an english Mishnah Torah, but in Shaarei teshuvah lists these. Note: I may have some wrong. There's much more information to them than included here, and always remeber tinok shenishbos and those who do full Teshuvah are not meant in this.

i've learned that everyone goes to gehenom before entering olam haba in order to cleans them of all aveiros-whether they spend a year (which i've learned is the max for anyone) or passed by the door (there's some mashal about this-anyone know?) everyone goes. i'm not sure what the source is for this, but i can ask.

This is what the shaarei teshuva lists:
3)baal hacheima-a hot tempered person
4)a ba'al machshava ra'ah (I don't know exactly what this means.)
5)One who becomes friends with a rasha
6)One who regularly eats a meal that is not satisfying. (A problem with making a bracha).
7)Someone who looks at arayos
8)One who shares profits with a thief
9)One who says "I will sin and do teshuva"
10)One who glorifies himself through the shame of his friend
11)One who separates himself from the tzibbur.
12)One who degrades his friends or rabbis
13)One who curses the "rabbim"
14)One who keeps the klal from doing a mitzva.
15)One who turns his friend from a good derech to a bad one.
16)One who uses the collateral of a poor person.
17)One who takes a bribe to influence a judgement.
18)Someone who finds a lost object and doesn't return it.
19)Someone who sees his child involved in bad and doesn't protest.
20)One who eats things robbed from the poor, orphans, or widows.
21)One who argues with words of chachamim.
22)One who suspects the innocent
23)One who hates rebuke
24)One who makes fun of the mitzvos.
And these are not things that keep a person from olam haba, they are things that keep a person from being able to do teshuva

That's pretty crazy for not keeping chol hamoed???
|taon||Posted - 14 October 2007 17:04
1 Chol Hamoed is a moed. ignoring it is like ignoring Yomim Tovim. There may be more to it
2 Teshuvah is harder becuase these are much more serious and much more ingrained, and people who do these things either dont think it's necessary to do tshuvash, or dont think they can. It's normal teshuvah, but with extra precautionary measures. some of them, tzaaros may be necessary to be fully cleansed.

So why isn't breaking actual yomtov one of them.
|taon||Posted - 15 October 2007 16:53
Like I said, there's more to it i don't know. And violating Yom Tov on purpose would be disregarding a part of the Torah.

Based on what you said @ 17:04 it sound like these averot aren't worse then other ones just that people who do these most prob aren't interested in tshuva???!
