You are correct!
Even though being punished for something or paying a fine is not fun, there is still a payment that needs to be made. The Lord does tell us what the penalty for sin is.
The Bible says in Romans 6:23a, "For the wages of sin is death;..."
Even though it may sound harsh, God does say that since we have sin we will die.
There will only be two places we can go.
God can not be with sin. So since we have to pay for our sins the only option we have, would be Hell. Thankfully for us, there is more to that verse then just the penalty.
Romans 3:23, "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
It's really awesome that God allowed a way out of Hell. You are almost there, one final question.
