Hi, electra nil!
You know, your question is an interesting one -- the way you word it I mean. Your question asks us to choose from a plurality of religions or 'answers' really, in order to solve a problem, the question of avoiding hell -- but it seems to be a singularly conceived hell. You follow what I'm saying?
In other words, you seem to start out with hell, as conceived as ONE THING. But we are asked to choose from thousands of 'options' for avoiding it (I hear there are something like SIX THOUSAND religions in the world today).
In still other words, your question seems to suggest that all the world's people view 'hell' in pretty much the same way. But if you believe that, electra nil, then why are there at least six thousand religions in the world today, which are, presumably, concerned with the very question of heaven ascent/hell avoidance?
If you, electa nil, are looking for a religion, and this is how you want to approach it you might do this: Focus your mind very clearly and very precisely decide on what you think is 'hell,' and then find the religion which speaks most directly to keeping your soul our of the 'hell' as you see it.
You know, electra nil, if you're interested, I wrote a hub about this....
Take it easy.
