Appointment with Eternity #6

| 10 Comments

Yet another reason why I must ask the million dollar question everyday which is: “If you were to die today, would you go to Heaven or Hell?”

  1. “If you were to die today, would you go to Heaven or Hell?”

    And yet again, you leave out the third viable option.

    Neither. Without the electrical stimulus of my nervous system, my brain would cease functioning, and I would be gone. (I hope to not literally be “in the grave,” though, as that’s a waste of a 4×7 chunk of ground – donation to a medical school is a much better option; cremation, if that isn’t available.)

    And, because I’m an adult, this doesn’t frighten me. If you need “legacy” or a continuing presence, I raised three great kids, so there’s that.

    Why be frightened of death? Everything ends. That’s like watching a movie and fearing the closing credits.

  2. Nameless, you’re not in their intended demographic. Neither am I.

  3. Nameless,

    There is no third viable option; that’s why I didn’t mention it.

    Nohm,

    You both are my intended demographic indeed.

  4. Hi Steve,

    Your statement of: “You both are my intended demographic indeed.

    is contradicted with: “There is no third viable option

    Vin listed the third viable option that I would give: Neither. Since you don’t accept that as an answer, I am not in your intended demographic. Your intended demographic for the “Good Person Test” (which is what I’m talking about, not for evangelism as a whole) are people who believe that people go to either Heaven or Hell.

    That’s the whole point of the “Good Person Test”; your demographic are people who think that they are good people, and that’s why they think they’ll go to Heaven.

    The “Good Person Test” does not work on people who view “Neither, because there is no evidence of the existence of a Heaven or Hell” as a viable third option.

    Therefore, we are not in your intended demographic.

  5. Ugh. In my comment above I wrote:

    Vin listed the third viable option…

    Of course, I meant “Nameless”, and not “Vin”. I apologize for any confusion.

  6. I’m in your head Nohm, you can’t escape my arguments.

  7. Well, now I’m confused. Who am I again?

  8. Nameless Cynic:
    “Who am I again?”
    You are the cynic who shall remain nameless.
    (Sorry, I could’t resist.)

    Nohm:
    Like it or not, Pastor Steve is interested in seeing you repent of your sins. Just because a student refuses to learn doesn’t mean that the teacher stops teaching.

    Everyone when he is fully trained will be like his teacher.

    Glenn, please re-read my last comment, where I wrote the following: “Your intended demographic for the “Good Person Test” (which is what I’m talking about, not for evangelism as a whole)

    (Emphasis mine)

    I’ll say it again, Glenn; I was talking about the Good Person test, and not evangelism as a whole.

    Glenn also wrote: “Just because a student refuses to learn doesn’t mean that the teacher stops teaching.

    Just for the record, saying that someone is refusing to learn? Isn’t too persuasive. It also makes you look like a wannabe mind-reader, which it certainly appears that you guys enjoy doing, but that is even less persuasive.

    Because you’re not successful at it.

    For the record, if I was trying to teach you… oh, let’s say about the Intelligent Design movement, or what the theory of evolution actually claims… and you refused to learn? I think I’d just quit after a while.

  10. Nohm,

    He gets bonus points for persisting stubbornly in the face of logic; he gets a better chair in the Heavenly Choir, and a fasttracked for promotion from angel to archangel (it’s a better career track in the company of Heaven…)
