C'mon Asheville, tell us how you really feel. You don't have to mince words around your friends.

Seriously! If I want all that, I'll just stay married. BTDT...next stop, Hell!

Heaven or Hell?
I am amazed how people can choose Hell when they do not know, what that place is like! As a Christian, I did not repent of my sins and I went through the black tunnel to Hell. It was no fun, I can tell you, anyone who is there will give everything to come out there, it is a place of terror and suffering for eternity, God does not want that anyone goes there, Jesus Christ saved me out of that place and I am thankful my whole life, that I want to serve Him, He is worthy. God send His Son to save us. It is our choice to receive His salvation. Heaven is not as many think, it is the most beautiful place, you cannot even imagine. This life is the dressing-room for eternity, blessed is he who repented of his sins and got cleansed through the blood of Jesus and walks in the love of God , forgiving others and keeping the commandments of Christ. The truth is in the word of God, the bible. Every one that seeks God, the Father of Jesus Christ, will find Him. Nobody needs to go to Hell, so long we live, we can find Him, He rejects no one, no sin is to great, He is almighty and can renew a broken vessel. God bless you!

Not sure...need more information. Now, the movies in heaven...are they all PG? Are the sports teams all populated by guys like Tim Tebow and Josh Hamilton? Is there any guarantee that I won't wind up sharing a cloud with Jim and Tammy Bakker? Are the harps all acoustic or can you plug in?

My opinions on your questions:

The reigning sports teams in heaven are, of course, the New Orleans Saints and, in baseball, the Anahein Angels. Tebow will almost certainly be taking snaps up there someday, but Hamilton's future presence as a Heavenly DH is in doubt: he could relapse again and commit some un-Christian acts.
In Hell the New Jersey Devils and the Miami Heat are the big draws.

Jim & Tammy? Umm...I don't think they made the cut. God hates hypocrites worse than up-front sinners! Jimmy & Tammy are most likely in there other place, in which the heat is making Tammy's make-up melt like a snowcone in Phoenix.

Heaven is undoubtedly an awesome recording studio with bost acoustic and electric set-ups. Like the old song tells us, "If there's a rock 'n' roll heaven, ya know they've gotta helluva band."

I'd ask how you know any of this, but fear you might answer.

The Heavenly Football League should be exciting.....I understand that all the plays are Hail Marys.

Well, normally I don't respond to street corner preaching, be it on a literal street corner, or an internet street corner, but I'm going to post something this time around...

It would really be sad if god requires members of his flock to embrace Jesus in order to find heaven. If there is a god, and he deems that even the best of people cannot achieve heaven without being Christian, then this is not a good god and he is not a deity who I would want to worship, not with billions of generous, kind people either raised outside of Christianity, or coming to doubt it.

Oh wow, it looks like I found my own street corner. Sorry about that.
