Number of People Per Day Who Die and Go to Hell
Answer, an estimate (explanation follows): according to statistics, approximately 83,000 people a day die and go to hell.
Christianity believes in the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Christians could accurately be called “followers of Jesus Christ.” Many Christians label their faith as a relationship with God and not at all associated with religion. For discussion sake only, though, world population stats will be presented according to “religion” and include Christianity.
According to world religion statistics, Christianity includes approximately 2.35 billion people, or 31.5% of the world’s population.
The world population is 7.48 billion people. The population is increasing by 70 million per year and 200,000 per day. Therefore, by the year 2020, the population will be about 7.7 billion.
Every day, approximately 151,000 people die and 360,000 people are born.
In the effort to figure out how many people of the 151,000 daily deaths make it to heaven, we first need to subtract the 29,000 children under the age of five who die daily. Tragically, these children die due to malnutrition (one-third) and preventable diseases, the main ones being: diarrhea, malaria, neonatal infection, pneumonia, preterm delivery, or lack of oxygen at birth. When these children under the age of about five die, they go directly to heaven. Amen! (Matthew 18:10)
Thus, there are 122,000 people past the “age of accountability” who die every day. The age of accountability is when someone is mature enough to choose whom they serve, through their beliefs, words, and actions. The age of accountability is at about age five.
Let’s first be clear: Christians believe that true followers of Jesus Christ will go to heaven, while people who are not followers of Jesus will, tragically, end up in hell for eternity.
This statement is harsh, possibly offensive, and sounds self-righteous. But if we go by the Bible and by the revelation of the Holy Spirit, the only way to get to heaven is through Jesus Christ (John 14:6). This truth is central to Christianity and what makes it unique.
There is only one faith that has a Savior who came to world to die for mankind, who died, rose from the dead, and ascended to heaven where He was before he came to earth and where He is now.
If we go by pure stats, 31.5% of the 122,000, or 38,430 people, make it to heaven daily. The remaining 83,570 people are not, according to world religion statistics, followers of Jesus Christ. They therefore go to hell upon death.
Now, in reality, we know that of the 2.35 billion “Christians” and “Catholics” in the world, not all of them are truly saved. We hope they are. We believe that God is merciful and that “all who call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Joel 2:32, Romans 10:13).
But, the reality is quite different, as this book reveals.
No man knows who is saved or is the judge of humanity. God is of course the only Judge. But it is safe to say that the 83,000 figure for people ending up in hell is conservative.

Jesus said: “And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. 30 I and My Father are one” (John 10:28-30).
Scripture from Revelation:
The enemy deceives: the whole world; the nations before the millennium; the nations during the millennium (Revelation 12:9, 20:3, 20:8,10).
