“will you go to heaven when you die? let’s find out. have you ever told a lie, stolen, used god’s name in vain, or looked at someone with lust? if yes, then you are a lying, thieving, blasphemous, adulterer at heart.”
well i better get used to the heat then…
it then continues on to say something about god forgiving all if you believe in his will. well great, there’s hope for us all. this “gospel” was given to me by a man on the side of the road who asked me if i believe in heaven and hell. “what do you think will happen to you when you die?” i’ll be reincarnated. as a human. “yeah, but what sort of human?” a good human. i’m a pretty good person. “do you think you would go to heaven?” yes. “why?” because i’m a pretty good person.
and that was the extent of our conversation as i passed him and crossed the road.
i don’t know what i believe. he does. good for him. i wish i could be so certain. but, realistically, there are too many options. too many people pushing their agenda. too many preachers trying to convert me. leave me be. i’ll sort it out on my own. i’m a pretty good person.
