Are you looking for an answer? I can give a few ideas.

Mephistopheles lures Faustus into sin with over the top displays, e.g. the parade of the seven deadly sins

Sin leads to punishment. Mephistopheles tries to tell Faustus that he lives in his own personal hell, tortured every day, but Faustus does not listen. Mephistopheles states he has pain “as great as the human souls of men” and that “misery loves company”

Sin is also internal. Doctor Faustus is not full of murderers and rapists, but those who succumb to pride and are overly ambitious. Hell is not necessarily full of evil people who commit murderous, atrocious acts. It is full of those who turned from heaven, who had ambition. Lucifer fell “of aspiring pride and insolence”

Does this help at all? I'm doing Faustus at A2 so these are some of my notes.
