On a Highway to Hell

Well, I'm headed for eternal damnation according to This Holy Test.

Knowing that you are guilty of breaking God's commandments, do you think you would go to Heaven or Hell


Let's see... umm... I want to go to... Heaven!


While it may seem that God's goodness will cause Him to overlook your sins, the opposite is actually true. Perhaps the following illustration will add some clarity: Imagine you're standing before a judge, guilty of multiple crimes. The judge is about to pass sentence when he asks, "Do you have anything to say for yourself?" You stand up, look the judge in the eye and say, "Yes Your Honor, I believe that you're a good man... and because you're good, you will let me go." The judge will probably say something like, "Well, you're right about one thing... I am a good man. And it's because I'm good that I'm going to see that you are punished for your crimes." The very thing you are counting on to save you on the Day of Judgment -- namely God's goodness -- is going to be the very thing that will see to it that justice is done. Because God is so good He will make sure that every murderer, rapist and thief receives justice... but He won't stop there. He will also make sure every liar, blasphemer, and adulterer is punished. While this is something that is extremely tragic and far from God's ultimate desire for any person, the Bible is clear that the place of punishment for those who do not turn from their sins is Hell.

Does the fact that you're headed for Hell concern you?


Man, Yahweh is a spiteful guy.

Nah, not really. I'd rather be tortured perpetually than condemned to worshiping God for eternity. Boring!

Anyway, I'll have plenty of friends there. And I'm sure I'll run into the founding hypocrite of NEEDGOD.COM while riding a particularly uncomfortable fire geyser.
