    Default Type-0 - Type 1

    Hello,

    -If you don't become a good person, you will go to hell.

    -If you don't become a good person, you go to hell.

    Do we have to use 'type-0' when we are talking about religious things?

    Sorry, It is written in the grammar books. Please just say which one is used in English, sentence 1 or 2?

    Grammar does not change when you are talking about religious things.

    If you don't become a good person, you will go to hell. This has the form of the first conditional. It is about a future possibility. Provided that the condition in the if-clause is fulfilled, the future situation of of the second clause is seen as a certainty.

    If you don't become a good person, you go to hell.This has the form of the zero conditional. It is presented as a general truth. Going to hell is the inevitable consequence of not becoming a good person.
