Why does God hold us accountable for our sin?

In the Holy Bible, God's word I know it is said that all are guilty of sin. God has every right to hold us accountable too, I just wonder why sin ultimately leads us to hell (cited scripture versus will be very helpful in answering this question). It makes sense though because sin is an ultimate offense against God. Jesus Christ's sacrifice is crucial. He saved us from hell if we accept him and have repentance.
