    Default Folks in Heaven

    I was shocked, confused, bewildered
    as I entered heaven’s door,
    not by the beauty of it all
    nor the lights or its decor.
    But it was the folks in heaven
    who made me sputter and gasp –
    the thieves, the liars, the sinners,
    the alcoholics, the trash.

    There stood the kid from seventh grade
    who swiped my lunch money twice.
    Next to him was my old neighbor
    who never said anything nice.

    Bob, who I always thought
    was rotting away in hell,
    was sitting pretty on cloud nine,
    looking incredibly well.

    I nudged Jesus, “What's the deal?
    I would love to hear your take.
    How’d all these sinners get up here?
    God must’ve made a mistake.''

    “And why’s everyone so quiet,
    so somber – give me a clue.”
    “Hush, child,” he said,
    “they’re all in shock.
    No one thought they'd be seeing you.”

    hi marian #1

    knock knock knocken on heavens door,
    and my verse sadly i dont think he will let me in,

    Search for the truth from the only source, Mathew 7 verse 7
    7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.

    9 “Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? 11 If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him! 12 So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law

    hi roger #3
    good evening, thats the reason my wifes mocks catholics as being insincere, because she says that catholics think they are immune to the wrath of the above, as they automatically think they are to going to heaven.

    Do you remember the Dave Allen joke about St Peter showing a proddy around heaven when they come across a high wall who asked why the high wall, St Peter replied all the Catholics are on that side and they think they are the only ones up here. Den

    Without wanting to be blasphemous but people must notice that God is dog backwards , there are many other words in the English language with similar synonyms . JS
