Yes, both (jail and hell)

God is probably the most man-made invention throughout time. It enforces the rules made by man, by claiming that you will go to hell if you don't listen to a man in the sky. Of course people will follow their rules, who would not?

Most people are afraid of hell. Which is a man-made pit of fire, situated below us, where we will go, if we do not love god, and repent for our sins. In other words, if we do not follow the rules of the white man, whom claim to have been given these rules, by a man in the sky.

It is purely through fear. Religion teaches love, loyalty, and servitude, through fear of punishment.

we haven't always followed the rules, even when the threat of both jail and hell was pressing: Slavery was perpetuated legally as well as justified biblically, one can also mention witch hunts and other such moronic atrocities. this to me shows that humans have an innate sense of right and wrong that the law or religion doesn't own but instead borrows from us.
